Thanks for this thread, Purron. I really needed something uplifting today.

I use the "Ode to Joy" theme from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony as my default cellphone ringtone. It never fails to put me in a good mood, so I can answer the call with a smile. I think that's well worth the few cents it cost to set it up.

Disclaimer: I have other custom ringtones for certain people. For example, DW is "Hail to the Chief" and my brewery-related friends are "Roll Out the Barrel."

Too lazy to find and post the youtube clips, but I've got a play list for an upcoming marathon that has some uplifting songs, like these:

Muse - Uprising
Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen
Ventures - Walk, Don't Run
Evanescense - Bring Me to Life
ELO - Hold On Tight
Aerosmith - Dream On
Bill Conti - Gonna Fly Now (Rocky theme)
REM - Shiny Happy People
U2 - Beautiful Day
That Cranberries song is on my list too.

I like Pink Floyd, a lot, but wouldn't call most of their stuff uplifting.
