"24K Magic" by Bruno Mars
Okay so the music video is not original by any means (Mars partying in Vegas), but the song is annoyingly catchy and will probably be played at every wedding for the next year. For an extra boost of happiness, check out this dance video set to Mars' latest hit.

"Fidelity" by Regina Spektor
The singer has proven her talent time and time again, but we will always revisit her classic 2006 single.

“Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen
Fun fact — a random sampling of 2,000 U.K. adults found that this was the most popular "feel-good song."

“Countdown” by Beyoncé
Another stellar love song from 4, which proves that great songs aren't all about unrequited love.
