Songs where the musicians are having fun?

In an attempt to stave off the winter blues, I want to compile a playlist of songs where the artists are clearly enjoying themselves. Examples inside.

I was listening to the radio this morning and Macklemore's Can't Hold Us
came on. I was struck by how good of a time he seemed to be having (you can hear him laughing in the intro and in the background at various points during the song). At the end of Stay Stay Stay
, you can hear Taylor Swift giggle and say, "That's so fun!"
Pete Seeger's Live in Mandel Hall
is another, slightly different example of what I'm looking for -- throughout the album he compliments the audience on their singing, tells jokes, and just generally seems really happy to be there.
I want more songs where the artists are laughing, or you can hear the smile in their voice, or they just seem to be having a really good time. Genre is unimportant. I'm assuming that many songs that fit the bill will be upbeat/peppy/driving rhythm-y, but extra bonus points for that anyway.
