When you’re having a bad day, what song do you crank up to cheer up?

Forbes Magazine journalist Steve Baltin asked several musicians what their happiest song is.

Dave Grohl – I want to say “Happy” by Pharrell, because I swear to god that one never gets old. But I’m gonna go with “C’Mon Ride It,” by Quad City DJs.

Beck – Pretty much anything in the Stevie Wonder catalog. It’s impossible to not be happy. “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing.” And Michael Jackson of course. “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”

Moby – The one that comes to mind is “Tangerine” by Led Zeppelin, cause it’s such a lovely happy song. And they use that in Almost Famous.

Ben Lovett, Mumford and Sons – “Wake Up Sue,” by the Boo Radleys

Ted Dwane, Mumford and Sons – anything by Bobby McFerrin

Perry Farrell – “Transmission,” by Joy Division

Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins – I’m not a happy song fan … but “Wouldn’t it be Nice” by the Beach Boys

Eric Hutchinson – “Signed, Sealed Delivered (I’m Yours),” by Stevie Wonder

Do you have a particular ‘happy’ tune?
