Clean, upbeat, non-love songs

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?

Never thought I'd ask this, but: Name that song!

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.

Irish song played during sporting events

I'm looking for an irish/punk-sounding song that often gets played on TV during sporting events. It was played multiple times during the Patriots-Giants game (usually right before commercial breaks) the other day, and I just heard it during the Winter Classic Hockey game too. Best-guess description of how it goes after the jump. [more inside]

The iPod of recovery

My cousin, a 30-something mother of two, is having surgery in four weeks to remove a brain tumor. Prognosis, unknown. The only thing she has asked for is some music appropriate for pre-surgery, post-surgery and/or physical therapy. Most of my ideas are pretty morbid. Suggestions? Any genre will do ...

Sound on Mars?

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.

What is the origin of Veggie Tales' Pizza Angel song?

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?
