    What Are Your "Happy" Albums?

    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.

    If so, do birds dream of walking, while we dream to fly?

    Dirty Heads- Any Port In A Storm
    The Distillers- Coral Fang
    Nirvana- Nevermind

    Green Day- Dookie
    M.I.A- Arular
    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

    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.

    -Joe Satriani-
    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...

    The Mars Volta - De-Loused In The Comatorium

    Not a happy album, but whenever I listen to it I tend to be in a really good mood.

    Simple, peppy, and upbeat tunes.



    It's all nice and happy until you start having technical difficulties.

    Shinedown "The Sound Of Madness"
    Taproot "Welcome," "Blue-Sky Research," "Our Long Road Home," "Plead The Fifth."
    Foo Fighters "The Colour And The Shape"

    There are probably more, but these are just a few...

    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.

    Anything by Bowling For Soup, Fun., or Phoenix would be a "happy" album for me.
