What is the Ultimate Feel-Good Song?


  1. Gimme Some Lovin’ - Spencer Davis Group

1A. Higher and Higher - Jackie Wilson

Your suggestions welcome.

This is The Life. :smiley:

Oh, I thought this was going to be Oingo Boingo

Who have made any number of feel good songs.


Mungo Jerry

Katrina and the Waves -Walking in Sunshine

Mouth and MacNeil -How Do You Do

Its gotta be 59th street bridge song (Feeling groovy) Simon and Garfunkle.

All is groovy!

That’s the Way I Like It, KC and The Sunshine Band

Come On Eileen, Dexy’s Midnight Runners

99 Red Balloons, Nena

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Cyndi Lauper

Oh, and Footloose, Kenny Loggins

Everytime You Touch Me - Moby

Everybody’s Free - Rozalla

Let Me Be Your Fantasy - Baby D

It Feels So Good - Sonique

Dub Be Good To Me - Beats International

Some elderly standards.

**Sir Duke **- Stevie Wonder

For me? Probably “Top of the World” by the Carpenters. Karen’s voice is like a warm blanket.

Not sure that a song about nuclear apocalypse is the ultimate feel good song.

I still like it though. :slight_smile:

I like to go old fashion here:

Joy to the World (Jeremiah was a Bullfrog.)

As with so many musical questions, the correct answer is, of course, Louie Louie by The Kingsmen.

Mr. Bojangles, especially this version:

wouldn’t it be

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Seconded. This was my first thought when I read the thread title.

Obviously, “I Feel Good” by James Brown. :smiley:

I Can See Clearly Now by Jimmy Cliff. What a happy, uplifting, pleasant song. :slight_smile:

Pretenders - Don’t Get Me Wrong

First song to come to mind: Good Day Sunshine.

Those are hard to beat - two of my favorite songs.

I also like Everlasting Love with Carl Carlton.
