So I've been jamming Weezer's blue album a lot lately, and I've noticed that it never ceases to bring a smile to my face, more so than any other album I listen to. What albums have that effect on you?
Any good album will bring a smile to my face - because it's good.
Happy albums? I had to think about that for a little bit.
The most recent would easily be Out Of Frequency by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour
Song is Ghost In My Head.
Before that was Diablo Swing Orchestra, either of their two albums, both are fantastic.
Pink Noise Waltz; off of their first album, The Butcher's Ballroom.
They say the grass is always greener on the otherside,
If so, do birds dream of walking, while we dream to fly?
Dirty Heads- Any Port In A Storm
The Distillers- Coral Fang
blink-182- Enema of the State
Green Day- Dookie
Mastodon- The Hunter
The Misfits- Famous Monsters
Paramore- All We Know Is Falling
And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat, that's all the truth I know
In a coat of gold or a coat of red, a lion still has claws
And mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that Lord of Castamere
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall, and not a soul to hear
Any song from this album:
What NightofNeptune said. But specifically happy, favourite albums/bands:
-John Butler Trio-
Grand National (Good Excuse, Fire In The Sky)
Sunrise Over Sea (Zebra, Company Sin)
April Uprising (Ragged Mile, Don't Wanna See Your Face)
and of course this performance of Ocean, incredible.
Professor Satchafunkilus & the Musterion of Rock (Out of the Sunrise, Prof. Satchafunkilus)
Super Colossal (Just Like Lightnin, A Cool New Way)
Joe Satriani (Cool #9, Slow Down Blues)
I could list so much more from Satch, but it's getting crowded.
-Rodrigo y Gabriela-
11:11 (Buster Voodoo, Hora Zero)
RyG (Tamacun, Diablo Rojo)
And their Area 52 re-interpretation album with the Cuban orchestra, that's fuckin happy. And awesome. Go buy it.
Then there's other stuff like Rory Gallagher, Katzenjammer, Lisa Hannigan, Zeppelin,.. but I've said too much already...

“Here is my final point. About drugs, about alcohol, about pornography and smoking and everything else. What business is it of yours what I do, read, buy, see, say, think, who I fuck, what I take into my body - as long as I do not harm another human being on this planet?” - Bill Hicks
"I just stole a poncho from a wooden Indian" - Tony Stark
Passion Pit - Manners
Two Door Cinema Club - Tourist History
The Boys of Summer - What It's All About
And basically any Owl City album lol. There's more but I can't recall them right now.
Edit: Gotta add Contra by Vampire Weekend and Some Nights by Fun. They always make me smile.

There are probably more, but these are just a few...
Daft Punk's Discovery.
So... I'll keep searching for a place called home:
I'll rip my roots from this earth into the unknown.
Is it for the dreams I chased or the ones I caught?
This mystery, this misery is killing me.
So, now, I'll leave behind a murder scene.
My life isn't real; it's just a silhouette—
and, when the sun goes down, I won't exist.
Except for "Runaway", Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is generally an album that brings back memories from a few years ago and makes me warm inside.
Oh, and Waka Flocka Flame.
no matter where I turn
everyone's a runaway
where ya running now?
