Upbeat music that you can dance to cheers me up. If it is lively, then it will make me feel happier. For example, in the kitchen, I have a dancing Elvis dog that sings 'Hound Dog', and I always feel brighter after playing it. I also like the songs by T-rex, and pop songs of the sixties.
RnB and pop music always helps cheer me up. Dance music is great too. Try Britney Spears music to make you feel upbeat, she may have gone totally weirdo but her music sure has some funky beats and tunes.
I'm finding 2CH in Sydney is keeping me in a great mood. I recently listened to it at a friend's place. It was on in the background. Great songs from when I was growing up so I've been listening for about a year or so now. Loving it!!
I've managed to make 'Gold' by Spandau Ballet the go-to cheer-up song for all of my family. It's so over-the-top dramatic, so seriously 80s, that it's impossible not to sing along like an 80s superstar. And that is seriously cheering.
My special ed students introduced me to Queen in the 'nineties. The band had completely passed me by as I was probably busy raising a family in their heyday. Playing their music full bore gets me through the most mundane of household tasks.
