from Super Mario Galaxy 2 always puts me in a good mood.
Did someone say happy vgm?

Not very fast, but very happy:

- Happier than the moon theme?
is my go-to when I need an enormous, goofy smile ASAP.

I really like these! WillRock, the moon theme has a "hopeful" feel to it. And this one sounds more modest to me. I think both are just different kinds of happy.

Isn't most vgm happy though? I'd wager roughly 90% of all VGM ever made is probably happy major-chord upbeat stuff. I want the thread that seeks the opposite of that. We've had happy vgm and vgm that makes you go O_O. Someone make next thread!

OT:

- Sounds unhappy and creepy to me. :D

I'd have to say, a bunch of Jake Kaufman's work is on the brighter, upbeat side of things. I have this one in my running mix and my driving mix, perks me up every time:

Mighty Switch Force: Yummy (Electronugget Remix) -

The whole soundtrack is pretty great, actually - http://virt.bandcamp.com/album/mighty-switch-force-ost

And the 2nd one's even better, in my opinion.
