I'm looking for mostly pre-2000s stuff. Not dancy necessarily, but very happy, poppy, stuff that you could dance in your seat to. So far I have;
Hall & Oates - You Make My Dreams Come True
Stevie Wonder - Signed Sealed Delivered
George Michael - Freedom
Cheesy is fine, if not encouraged.

Looking for songs about North Americans. [more inside]

I'm trying to put together a list of the happiest sounding songs with the saddest lyrics... can you help? [more inside]
