A song that cheers you up when you're down

Do you have a song that always cheers you up when you're down ?

Mine is "I would die 4 U" - Purple Rain - Prince and the Revolution.

"Listen to the Music" by the Doobie Brothers. I also like to listen to hymns to cheer me up.

Jimmy Buffet...Margaritaville, Fruitcakes, One Particular Harbor, and many more!

Most any Little Feat song does the trick...Texas Twister and Fat Man in the Bathtub are great.

And my all time favorite is...Drivin' Blind, by Little Feat.

It really depends but I can listen to Megadeth and become happier just from enjoying the music or I can listen to Pachelbel's Canon (The Bridal Waltz song for our wedding) and be uplifted. It gives me tingles listening to that song.
