Best Day Of My Life by American Authors
I wake up to this one! :3
Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra
I wake up to this one sometimes too. :3
Happy by Pharrell Williams
Can't listen to it just once? You're welcome. [I've been known to leave this on in the background for, like, an hour or more at a time. No seriously though, go ahead and watch a couple of those. You can't help but smile yourself at how much fun everyone's having. ^^])
Misere Mani by Era
I love this one! So beautiful!!
Step By Step by Ziggy
When I got for a walk or run, I'll often start off with this song. I also love that the only English words in it are "step by step" and "I gotta go my own way"--often the perfect message themselves! ^^

Neo Universe by L'arc~en~Ciel
Another lovely one! Though the translation is a bit Engrish-y, you can still get a good sense of the beautiful lyrics. (There's a slightly more user-friendly translation here.) There's a lovely English cover of this song that you can hear here as well.

Stay Away by Daniel Powter (original by L'arc~en~Ciel)
A REALLY well-done cover of one of my favorite songs from this band!

즐거은 인생/Pleasant Life by Lee Gwang Jo
I can't find a translation for the lyrics online, but you don't need to understand the words to enjoy this song! So easy to picture people grooving in cabanas on a beach, frosty drinks in hand, as the sun sets, casting a soft glow over a happy, festive scene...well, it's certainly easy for me. ^^
Biaxident by Liquid Tension Experiment
The only one on this list that doesn't have lyrics!
Dancing In The Moonlight by King Harvest
Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing by Stevie Wonder (John Legend cover)
"Everybody needs a change
A chance to check out the new
But you're the only one to see
The changes you take yourself through."
