7. Someone loves you Honey – Lutricia McNeal

Typical for 90`s style happy songs – very upbeat and works great with Lutricia`s distinctive voice.

Someone loves you honey(someone loves you)
No mather what, just be my guy, baby
More than anything in the world


6. Don`t stop believin – Glee Cast

This is originally a rock song by “Journey” and that one is of course amazing. But the popular version of the Glee cast is very well arranged and I like it a little better, it`s just more of in the line of happy songs…

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere


5. Hakuna Matata – The Lion King

I have learned so much from that movie. Losely translates into “No worries”, a message that certainly qualifies for a spot in the best feel good songs ranking.

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain’t no passing craze
It means no worries for the rest of your days
It’s our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!


4. Put a little love in your heart – Al Green feat. Annie Lennox

Song from the Christmas movie “Scrooged” that just makes you feel good, music how it should be. Most successful single of Lennox` solo career.

Take a good look around
And if you’re lookin’ down
Put a little love in your heart
And I hope when you decide
Kindness will be your guide
Put a little love in your heart


3. You can get it if you really you want – Jimmy Cliff

The title says it all. Great motivational message and very catchy tunes, simply happy music par exellance. Just go for it!

You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try, try and try
You’ll succeed at last


2. Sweat – Inner circle

The definition of summer hit happy songs! Can´t imagine someone not liking this Reggea song from 1992.

Standing across the room
I saw you smile
Said I want to talk to you-oo-oo
For a little while
But before I make my move
My emotions start running wild


1. Everybody – DJ Bobo

Maybe it`s a little awkward, that I chose this song by a wannabe Gangsta rapper for number one of the best feel good songs ever ranking. But I can`t help it, I have listened to this song about a million times every time I hear the famous “music is what I`m living for” I start smiling.

Everybody move your feet
To the rythm of this beat
Everybody sing this song
All the people having fun
