Default Top Five Feel Good Tunes

Without thinking about it too much - what are your top 5 feel good tunes?
After spending a day with my i-pod on shuffle something I rarely do - I discovered some old classics that I just love.


Shout to the Top - Style Council
There she goes -The La s
Mersey Paradise - Stone Roses (actually pretty much anything by the Stone Roses)
Young Hearts Run Free - Candi Staton
I'm every Woman - Chaka Khan

ps - I AM a hopeless technophobe - first of all put this thread in other forum then did not know how to delete title - so left an 'o'

Stone Roses don't really do it for me

There is just too many to mention and I couldn't give five 'all time faves'. So I'm going to go back in the days when I owned a pair of 1210s and would dance till 5am on a cocktail for proplus and snakie B's, I'd say the uplifting feel good stuff was:

- Children - Robert Myles
- For an Angel - Paul Van Dyke
- Offshore - Chicane
- Insomnia - Faithless
- Phatts & Small - Turnaround
I appreciate the Candi Staton remixes too.

I don't expect anyone to know or remember these tracks (except from Auto).

Nowadays, it's really anything - Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj (who I still can't decide if I would kill or ****), Pink, Katie Perry... I'm mainstream.

I was at Creamfields when Paul Van Dyke 1st played For an Angel - Amazing. Also love Binary Finary from the same year.

Saw Faithless at Cardiff Uni too in 98/99 they were also amazing, I love Chicane, Saltwater has to be my favourite.

Phatts & Small????!!!

Sweet Caroline, hate to admit it but the first song I knew well enough to sing by myself.

We may have been at the same Creamfields. Great day/night. Pity the car radio got nicked but hey ho - it wasn't my car.

Actually, the Phatts and Small track brings back happy memories. I opened a set on that track before K-Klass came on. I like a bit of cheesy house too.

I would also like to put out there any 5 tracks from the following albums:

- Fatboy slim: You've Come a Long Way, Baby
- Fatboy slim: On the floor at the boutique
- Fergie: The dutchess

Not a bad track on any of those albums. In fact, the only albums I would say that about. Normally, there are only three good songs and the rest shite.

Think that was the year I did the Reverse Bungee in the ball whilst in a slight state of disrepair............I remember leaving at 5/6 am back to Leeds and thinking I was in an Airplane on a runway. Someone must of spiked my drink.............

What about this little beauty, Dreaming - Ruff Driverz Presents Arrola, Delerium - Silence?

I feel the need to play the Euphoria album on the way home today........

Delerium was always a bit too chilled for me. The Ruff Driverz however... classic stuff. Don't forget Deeper Love. Happy days in Shagaluf.
