    Face it - Helloween is just happy bouncy metal.

    Arthemis' "Free Spirit" off of "Back From the Heat" is so inspirational, it makes you want to go and adopt all the puppies at PetSmart.

    SHoot yeah, I can't believe i forgot about that one - I think I listened to it once 5x in a row until I smiled.

    It had been a really bad day.

    I'll add 'Visions' by Stratovarius...especially the ending of the song (the last 2 mins).

    Gamma Ray - Heaven Can Wait

    But NOTHING trumps Shiny Happy Poeple by REM off the Out of Time Album

    But... that is actually a really depressing song about how everyone in the Reagan White House was just a drone of the imperialist capitalist Military/Industrial Complex, but the media wouldn't call them out on it!

    Or, you know, that's what Stipe thought, at least.

    Devin Townsend's Addicted.

    The whole album. Lyrically it feels more bittersweet than pure happy, but it's ridiculously uplifting.

    Only two mentions of DragonForce songs? Wow.



    Also, Turisas can do the bouncy thing very well if necessary.

    I agree about the Devin Townsend song. Amazing song given its simplicity. The whole record is actually awesome.

    I find it interesting people are talking about some Devin tunes on here but not this one, which I would say is his most light-hearted song. And you gotta love the pure cheese of that video.
