Some much needed news this afternoon in the form of the world's happiest songs. If you need a pick-me-up then look no further than the findings from Buzz Bingo, who today published results of a "happiness index" reading.

Wilson Pickett's 'I'm In Love' takes the top-spot, with Chubby Checker's 'Lovely, Lovely', Marvin Gaye's 'Pride and Joy', Kylie Minogue's 'I Should Be So Lucky' and The Beach Boys' 'Dance Dance Dance' making up the top five. 

Based on musical valence (a positivity metric), lyrical sentiment and lyrical density, Buzz Bingo also drew up a list of the happiest songs from the last few decades. Those include 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' by Whitney Houston, which is a song with definite, big time relatable vibes right now.

The top listings can be seen below, and if you want to know what the happiest song from your birth year is then look no further. This tool will let you know.
