I love this thread!  Grin
One of the best cheer-me-up singers, hearing him just lifts my spirits:

Marc Almond: Bitter Sweet

Marc Almond: Tears Run Rings

And then there's my favorite duo:

Erasure: Weight Of The World

Erasure: Yahoo!

If you're feeling down, any or all of these songs should make you feel better.  laugh

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short.
But shout it at them in German, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Putting this post together--looking for the names of the twin girls and the guy dancing with one of them--I was introduced to 555 95472…5 for short--and the twins, his sisters…3 and 4!

Here’s a link for the details and background of 3, 4 and 5…

You really think so? It always had the opposite effect for me. I just get very emotional listening to some of those songs. I once spent an hour or two walking around an old local cemetery with the song "Here Comes Your Man" stuck in my head. I felt like I could almost cry. Shit was intense. Cry I'm a miserable cunt, though.

As I was leaving the cemetery, I happened to notice a caved-in sarcophagus-like structure (not sure of the technical term for it, but it was like a cement cap over a burial plot, I guess) near the edge of the cemetery with a dead opossum pinned between the broken pieces of cement. That sort of killed the mood.

Happy songs... Happy songs... I tend to like stuff that evokes a lot of bittersweet, intense, spine-tingling feelings in me. Calling the effect "happy" seems like a gross oversimplification. More like "overwhelming". But some songs songs I simply consider cheery and energizing without tacking on a lot of excess emotional baggage would be:
The Aislers Set - My Boyfriend Could Be a Spanish Man
Henry's Dress - Winter '94
New York Dolls - Personality Crisis
A shitload of Sparks songs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... (on and on). Sparks cheer me up like no other!

And, before anybody calls me a mindless sycophant, I liked those last two for years before I knew Morrissey was a fan. Angry

Geez, Teenage Dream by Katy Perry makes me sad too, haha.

There's a Pokemon first album song that inspires me.  Billie Piper's Making My Way Any Way that I Can.  Yes, rose from doctor who sang it.

I remembered another uplifting song that I really enjoy a couple of days ago:
T. Rex - Sensation Boulevard

I think it's only sad inasmuch as it makes me reflect on how young Marc Bolan was when he died. I sometimes get lost in thinking about the alternate reality where he never died, and all the songs and albums that never came to be.
