Recommended songs for a happy young woman?

Hi. So a good friend of mine is a happy young woman, about to have her 23rd birthday. She's asked her friends for songs to play. I found a list of songs referring to being 23, here on Metafilter - but they're all generally pretty depressing and negative about being 23. Do people have songs they recommend, for happy young women in general? Her tastes are modern, rock-oriented and eclectic - she's a big fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Pretty Reckless, MGMT, and dance music, for example. thanks!

I'm your Tiny dancer, dancer for money, and any old music will do.

"My" cat's name is Tiny. I want to pick her up and dance with her around the house more when she comes to visit. Can you please provide me songs that would adapt to using the word "Tiny" that I can sing to her while we dance? I already know "Tiny Dancer" and "Private Dancer." Please assume classic songs I (a relatively music-clueless 43 year old) would know.

Song cover

I was at work the other day and I saw a promo on Turner Classic Movies. I really liked the music they used. I think it was a cover of a song called "Dance with me" by Lords of the New Church. Anyone else seen this or heard a good cover of it? [more inside]

Irresistible dance songs...

I'm looking for irresistible dance songs, songs that get you out of your seat and shaking it. Can you remember the best song you've ever danced to? (bonus points for obscure or genre-bending tracks)
