    I love this version. The joyfulness of the players in this montage of live clips is just irresistable. Great message, too.

    Sometimes when I can tell my kids are not feeling the morning, I will go downstairs a couple minutes before they do and cue this up on the stereo. By the time they jump off the stairs they meet me in the middle of the living room floor for a good morning dance. :D Then everything is good to go!

  15. This one's a ton of fun for me - Tigran Hamasyan's "Entertain Me":

    Also, the incomparable "Chakrulo":

    In a strange way, I find this joyous and uplifting (cheerful, maybe not so much :D):

    More to come, maybe.

    The mountain is high, the valley is low
    And you're confused on which way to go
    So I've come here to give you a hand
    And lead you into the promised land....
