    Suggestions for happy, celebratory music?

    Looking for music with a very upbeat and happy mood, as in 'my back friggin hurt for 10 years and there is nowhere I'd rather be than here dancing this dance that gave me my life back' happy... Something driving and dynamic and good for an entrance piece is a plus. Style not too important, just looking for celebratory mood. Appreciate any suggestions, thanks.

    Salaam Alaikoum by Saad (from the Art of Bellydance CD) is a very happy, upbeat song. The style is pop-y shaabi, so it's a little repetitive, but it's fun (and very much in demand with my arabic-speaking audience right now).

    Helwa Laba Di, if that doesn't seem notoriously overused to you. I still like it a lot!

    I agree. Luxor Baladina always makes me feel like I stumbled into the best party ever!

    "Allah A'aleik ya Sidi" by Ehab Tawfiq never fails to make me (and audience) happy.

    I like a lot of Armenian music for this. Much of it is pretty bouncy. I just danced to "Soode Soode" (as done by John Bilezikjian) in a recital because it always makes me happy to hear it. Another good one is "Aman Aman" by Harry Saroyan. Fast, cheerful, and exhilarating. Also, not Armenian, but I can't help but smile every time I hear "Ya Mustapha," partly because of the silly multi-lingual lyrics.

    Halla Halla by Hakim is one of my favorite happy songs! Its a bit cutesy with the chirping birds in the background but it just screams puppies, rainbows, and kittens. lol

    Saharony Ellil - I could never figure out if he is actually singing "Happy Day", or if it just sounds like it.
