OK, if you were making a cute cheer up playlist... songs that are lighthearted and cheer you up, what would you put on there...

Fiona Apple with Extraordinary Machine
HelloGoodbye with So, This is Love
The Macabees with Toothpaste Kisses

Oh man, I already have like three playlists like this in iTunes, with varying degrees of cheerfulness.

These, however, are some of the best:

The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations
Mama Cass - Make Your Own Kind of Music
Three Dog Night - Shambala
The Monkees - Daydream Believer
KT Tunstall - Suddenly I See
Katrina & The Waves - Walking on Sunshine
Cajun Dance Party - The Next Untouchable
Vampire Weekend - A-Punk

NOW CHEER UP. :D

This is so sad. I have a depression play list, but no cheer up play list xD Emo kid in the closet, I guess.

AND MORE.

Buddy Holly - Everyday
Fountains of Wayne - Hey Julie
Jonathan Coulton - I Feel Fantastic
Justice - D.A.N.C.E.
Mama Cass - It's Getting Better
Man Man - Black Mission Goggles
MIKA - Lollipop
Paul Simon - Me & Julio Down By the Schoolyard
The Rumble Strips - Girls And Boys In Love (David E Sugar's Shameless Mix)
The Ting Tings - That's Not My Name

I think you can get the Jonathan Coulton one free on his website, btw.

And yes, I do like Fountains of Wayne. 'Stacy's Mom' isn't their ONLY song, you know. 'Valley Winter Song' is awesome. LISTEN TO IT. I command you.

Oh, and as you can see, I am a mix of geek, old pop, and hipster. Woohoo!

Most of Great Big Sea's songs are good for cheering up. Always works for me. Especially songs like Ordinary Day, When I'm up, Donkey Riding, It's the End of the World As We Know It, Sea of No Cares, When I am King, and, again, almost everything else by them.

And the Last Saskatchewan Pirate was originally by The Arrogant Worms, but has been covered by Captain Tractor (best version, in my opinion) and Brad Johner.
