I'm looking for clean, upbeat songs that are NOT about love. I just need one business-appropriate one to edit a "Candids" video of business people at a sales meeting to. The client is super picky and wants pop music with exactly the right lyrics and a "high-energy" tempo. They liked the lyrics to "Oh Yeah" by Macy Gray but didn't think it was upbeat enough. Any ideas?

help-my-dad-figure-out-the-song-filter: The song is about a breakup by an African-American singer, which seems to be a couple of years old. The music video is about the breakup with 2 kids in it, left by the husband. The tune is somewhat fast and rhythmic.

Musicfilter: I was listening to Indie 103.1 (a Los Angeles radio station) and a song came on where it seemed that half of it was a strange narration of a Martian invasion. If any of you know what I'm talking about, I'd be grateful. The narrating was in a serious, NPR kind of voice... if that helps.

Veggie Tales has a Silly Song with Larry called Pizza Angel that sounds familiar, but I can't quite place it. The closest song I've found is Last Kiss, originally written by Wayne Cochran and later sung by Pearl Jam, but they aren't all that close. Some of the comments on the YouTube video suggested it was a parody of Johnny Angel or Teen Angel, but neither of the versions I found sounded like the origin of Pizza Angel. It’s quite possible this is an original composition, but it sounds so familiar. Does anyone know of a song that could have been the inspiration for Pizza Angel?
