43 Best Happy Songs – Songs With Happy in the Title
Last Updated: September 8, 2022 | Written by Matthew Campbell (Editor of My Wedding Songs and wedding DJ)
What better way to spend a day than to be Happy? With the rise of the mega-hit Happy from the Movie Despicable Me 2, we just had to create a list of Happy songs. Being happy is what every person strives for on a daily basis.
The quote “Happy Happy Happy” is also a popular saying from the TV show Duck Dynasty by Phil Robertson.
When you think of being happy, you may also think of smiling and relief from stress. You will also think of being delighted or pleased.
Check out my list below of happy songs. Each song will have the word happy in the song title. I am excluding all songs that reference a special holiday or birthday that reference the word Happy.
Please see the other song lists we have that feature those special days.
