She is red-hot in this video:

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned any songs from the Beach Boys unfinished Smile album yet.

I can't believe I didn't think of this right away. Louis Prima is the personification of joy.

I googled this song and the first result was from when they played at the #1 Legion for Sled Island. That definitely put a smile on my face.

This song makes me smile out loud.



Calgarians may recognize some of the landmarks in this video by the same band. These guys will be in Calgary in September. Also a smile worthy tune.

I'm reminded of this thread:

https://forum.calgarypuck.com/showth...ht=happy+songs


And the theory behind what makes a song happy:

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017...seventh-chords

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.593d70091586

Quote:
Jolij's final equation of Feel Good Index (FGI) includes the sum of all positive references in the lyrics, the song's tempo in beats per minute and its key. The higher a song's FGI, the more feel-good it is predicted to be. Happy lyrics, a fast tempo of 150 beats per minute (the average pop song has a tempo of 116 beats per minute), and a major third musical key all help create music we perceive as brimming with positive emotion.

“The number one feel-good song is 'Don't Stop Me Now' by Queen — it's quite a bit faster than the average song, plus it's in a major key that works quite well, and if you look at the lyrics, they are very positive,” said Jolij. " 'Don't Stop Me Now' is an excellent example of a feel-good song.”
BTW, "Love Shack" turns 30 today.

If this doesn’t make you smile you are probably dead on the inside.
