Sea of joy - Blind Faith

It is possible that some of these aren't necessarily happy but they just remind me of happy things.
Judging by the lack of replies.
I'd say nobody is happy or actually wants to be.
You Can Tell the World - Simon & Garfunkel
59th St Bridge Song - Simon & Garfunkel

There are lots more I may be able to think of later, but it's Monday morning and I'm just going back to work after a week off.

I'd say that at post-22:00 on a Saturday, people are either out, or engaging in deeper threads. This one got pushed down the list

You mean pissed and arguing about stuff they can't change
Photosynthesis - (by the most awesome Frank Turner)
> You mean pissed and arguing about stuff they can't change
Isn’t that what is meant by “involved in deeper threads”?
I was busy with a futile attempt to get someone to put his money where his mouth is, regarding advance train bookings. That one went well.
Beverly Hills and El Scorcho by Weezer. Big dumb rock songs - yeah.
So many, but how's this for starters:
She Loves You - The Beatles
La Vie en Rose - Louis Armstrong
I Don't Want to Dance - Eddie Grant
Spirit in the Sky, Shiny Happy People

Right now it’s Ever Fallen In Love by Buzzcocks.
r.i.p. Pete Shelley
I don't know if you saw my post on the other thread, I'm a big Buzzcocks fan. But they're not known for happy songs and EFILWSYSHFILW isn't a happy song.
Sierra - Boz Scaggs
The promised Lamd by Chck Berry. I was driving with a btoken ankle to see my wife in hospital with cervical cancer (she is ok now) when it came on the radio and I ended up sobbing it made me so happy.
The Cure, Just like heaven.
Blancmange, The day before you came.
A-ha, Objects in the mirror.

It sounds happy and it makes me happy when I hear it. I think that was the intent of the thread.
In general I think the correlation between happy lyrics and happy feelings engendered by listening to them is pretty poor. Any sort of analysis of pop lyrics reveals a remarkable paucity of analloyed joy. Slade perhaps.
It makes me happy because I escaped from and survived such a situation (a long time ago) and I'm happy.
I can't believe I missed walking on sunshine.
I'm going to try to listen to all the ones I haven't heard this weekend.
Great thread! Here’s my tuppence ha’pennyworth:
Anything by the Kinks but especially A Nice Cup of Tea
also Better Things with Bruce Springsteen and Ray Davies
Northern Lights by Renaissance
Van Morrison Bright Side of the Road
Traveling Wilburys Handle With Care
and I second Frank Turner’s Photosynthesis,
Peter Gabriel Solsbury Hill
and Simon & Garfunkel’s 57th Street Bridge Song
