I'd love your recommendations for some upbeat, happy, dance/electronic music (probably from Europe), based on a couple of tracks inside.

I like "happy" music--uptempo, kinda fun, maybe a little tongue in cheek, etc.--I like Euro dancey electonic-y stuff. Can you recommend any other tracks and / or artists like those below? Does NOT have to be in English. I don't tend to go for saccharine K-Pop or J-Pop music.

Fatal Bazooka (Feat. Yelle): Parle a la main.
Studio Killers: Ode to a Bouncer
Martin Solveig (feat. Dragonette) Hello (love the Tenenbaums!)
Robyn: Stars
Yelle: Safari Disco Club
Royksopp: Happy up Here
Mint Royale: Something New
Saint Etienne: Stars Above Us
Junior Senior: Shake Your Coconuts!

That's just a grab bag, some newer/dancier/happier/peppier than others. Shake them coconuts! WheeeEEeeEE!

Swedish House Mafia, pretty much anything.

Seconding Swedish House Mafia. Save the World always makes me happy. I also like Daft Punk. Amish Rake Fight is American, but might fit the bill. And you might check out the Rubber Bandits.

Well, I have kind of a British bias, but I've listed a few European ones that I can think of off the top of my head.

Basshunter - Every Morning (or probably anything by him)

Axwell & Sebastian (from Swedish House Mafia, but not a SHM song I don't think) - It's True

Infernal - From Paris to Berlin

Midfield General - Disco Sirens

Gunther and the Sunshine Girls - Ding Ding Song

Mini Viva - Left My Heart in Tokyo

La Roux - In For the Kill and Bulletproof

Faithless - Insomnia

I'm guessing you know about Goldfrapp but if not, here's Ooh La La.

I also love anything by Basement Jaxx esp. Oh My Gosh. I'm also guessing you know about The Prodigy, who are also awesome.

You might also like Cascada - Everytime We Touch, Evacuate the Dancefloor

I also like DJ Sammy - Heaven and The Boys of Summer (I think he does mainly electronica/dance cover versions)

Scooter - Jumping All Over the World (amongst others)

Vengaboys - Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!

I love this genre as well and hope there are lots of Europeans who will chime in when they wake up tomorrow.

Definitely Goldfinger and Cascada as mentioned above. Scissor Sisters, Tiga, 2ManyDJs/Soulwax, David Guetta, Armand Van Helden...shit you would probably have loved my old college radio show, here are some of the playlists.
