Yes, I am an Air Supply geek, and "All out of love" has some of the best and happiest memories from my life. Like the time Russell Hitchcock gave me a high-five during that song at a concert.

Actually that song is by REM, with Kate Pierson of the B-52s helping out on vocals:

Another happy song

Pennies from Heaven
Writer(s): Johnny Burke, Arthur Johnston

Every time it rains,it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven

You'll find your fortune's falling
All over the town
Be sure that your umbrella
Is upside down

Trade them for a package of
sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love,
You gotta have showers
So when you hear it thunder,
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me

Really? It's the closing number from the movie "Summer Stock" which is a pretty good movie in it's own right, and is almost certainly the best of the "Hey, let's build a stage in the barn and put on a show!" genre of movies.

Frank Sinatra Come Fly With Me

Very nice. If we're talking Sinatra though, I like this one just a tiny bit better:
Frank Sinatra- "Fly Me To The Moon"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaLLxPtmyPI

Continuing with the Rat Pack theme, while this song itself is anything but "happy", the way Sammy Davis sings it while impersonating various other popular singers of the day always brings a smile to my face:
Sammy Davis Jr.- "One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)"

Sing, sing a song
Sing out loud
Sing out strong
Sing of good things, not bad
Sing of happy, not sad.
Sing, sing a song
Sing out loud
Sing out strong
Sing of good things, not bad
Sing of happy, not sad.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple
To last your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not good enough
for anyone else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

Sing, sing a song
Let the world sing along
Sing of love there could be
Sing for you and for me.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple
To last your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not good enough
for anyone else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.
