Come On, Get Happy
Does Pharrell's buoyant ode to feeling good make you feel like you're walking on air? Fortunately, he's not alone in his "Happy"-ness. Pop music contains a long history of songs dedicated to that blissed-out (and all too often elusive) state of contentment and joy we call happiness, from R.E.M.'s "Shiny Happy People" to The Turtles' "Happy Together," Blood, Sweat & Tears' "You've Made Me So Very Happy" to Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy." And we've got most of them here on this playlist -- even Raffi (with the quintessential version of "If You're Happy and You Know It"). So turn that frown upside down and join the joy ride.
