Having a bad day ? Listen to some Billy Joel! (one of our favorite artists!) Want to know the happiest sounding songs? A university professor in London with a PhD in music psychology claims to have cracked the formula to creating one. Basically the song has to be in a major key, with 137 beats per minute, and other musical technicalities. Oh, and dance-ability is a must. Here are the top 5 that meet his criteria.
#1 “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys
#2 “I Feel Good” by James Brown
#3 “House of Fun” by Madness (huge in England),
#4 “Get the Party Started” by Pink, and
#5 “Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel.
