What is the most feel-good song ever written?

What is the most feel-good song ever written?Scientists say – Queen's 1979 hit "Don't Stop Me Now."

British electronics manufacturer Alba surveyed 2,000 UK adults about what their favorite feel-good songs were.

They cited songs included ABBA's "Dancing Queen", The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations", Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl", even Pharrell Williams' "Happy."

But the most feel-good song is Queen's 1979 hit "Don't Stop Me Now."

Cognitive Neuroscientist Dr. Jacob Jolij analyzed the data for Alba and said there are three things that make a song "feel-good."

"Songs written in a major key with fast tempo are best at inducing positive emotions," wrote the University of Groningen, Netherlands assistant professor of psychology. "Virtually all 'feel good' songs were in major key (save one or two), and all of them were at least 10 BPM faster than the average pop song."

"Although you cannot really pinpoint one song as the ultimate feel-good song, what we can do is identify specific features of songs that lift people's spirits. The more data we have available, the more we can learn about how music affects our moods," added Jolij.
