... the other Black experience

Mine are:


-Love Shack by B-52's

-Roam by B-52's

-Today by Smashing Pumpkins

-Can't Stop Loving You by Jacksoul

-Why Don't You Get A Job by The Offspring

-Tijuana Taxi by Herb Alpert Brass Band


Everytime I hear these songs, I get a smile on my face.  So, what are your "happy" songs?
