Listen, it's good for morale

Sometimes a good song is enough to chase blues. It's even scientifically proven. Researcher in neuroscience at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, Jacob Jolij has tried to identify what makes a melody makes us happy. As a result, it has to meet three main criteria: a tempo of at least 150 beats per minute, a range of notes in major mode and positive lyrics.

Based on this observation, he has established a ranking of the ten tubes supposed to make us sure to see life in pink, among those of the last fifty years. Here they are :

1 - Do not Stop Me Now, Queen
2 - Dancing Queen, Abba
3 - Good Vibrations, Beach Boys
4 - Uptown Girl, by Billy Joel
5 - Eye of the Tiger, by Survivor
6 - I'm a Believer, Monkees
7 - Girls Just Want to Have Fun, by Cindy Lauper
8 - Livin 'a Prayer, by Bon Jovi
9 - I Will Survive, by Gloria Gaynor
10 - Walking on Sunshine by Katrina & The Waves

If that is not enough to make you jump with joy, we have concocted an alternative list. Euphoric effect guaranteed by the writing of Serengo:

1 - Let's Groove, from Earth Wind & Fire
2 - Video Killed the Star Radio, Buggles
3 - Blue like you, of Etienne Daho
4 - Feeling Good, by Nina Simone
5 - Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly and the Family Stone
6 - Rumor Has It, by Adele
7 - Radio Ga Ga, Queen
8 - Diamonds, by Rihanna
9 - I want leather, Alain Souchon
10 - Sunny, from Boney M.
