    Default Your Most Uplifting Tracks... Ever!

    Been a while/years since I did one of these, (they usually revolve around obscure instruments, so count your blessings! ) but this time I'm after your favourite uplifting tracks. Tracks that no matter how much of a grumpy barsteward you are, or if you are in a really foul mood you play and can't help but smile, if even only to yourself...

    No limits on how many you want to suggest, I'm sure we've all got loads of songs we know and love, but I'll kick off with just one - Queen and Don't Stop Me Now - impossible not to smile after playing that, right? Come on, give me your happy and I'll put them into a killer playlist!

    Good shout there Neil, LOVE that track. I think anyone would struggle to be miserable listening to Bernard Cribbins, Ste! Not sure I know that Supremes track, will have to give it a listen. Need a few more please folks to justify a playlist.

    Who said the perfect pop song does not exist. Well it does & nothing bettered it yet thats because it is the greatest pop song ever created

    The Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star. Puts me in a good mood everytime..

    Not sure what you mean about uplifting because my idea & say someone that goes to big night clubs in Ibiza have a different idea about the definition.

    That is a top shout - what a track, and Trevor Horn is a genius!

    I see what you mean about uplifting - I guess anything that makes you smile. Pretty much everything on the Kevin and Perry Go Large soundtrack would work for either of your scenarios!

    Trevor Horn was a genius.. Grace Jones, Frankie goes To Hollywood, Seal, Art of Noise, YES etc etc

    A very underrated band was The Art of Noise.

    Yeah a genius alright - took a song (Slave To The Rhythm) and made a whole album of its remixes. I still play it regularly, and I really must get me a newer less worn-out copy

    Aye. Dave Gilmour's guitar parts were sampled on that album.. We sold quite a few of that album in the record shop back in the 80's ZTT Records was mega popular
