Writer's Block: Happy, happy, joy, joy

Which song makes you happy every time you hear it, and why?

Loads of songs make me happy, but the one I keep coming back to when these sorts of questions are asked is Always on my Mind, the Pet Shop Boys' cover version. Why? Because it reminds me of a very happy time in my life. But also because it's musically very upbeat, the production is about as "everything but (or possibly including) the kitchen sink" as you can possibly get, the various remixes of it, official and otherwise, are clever and imaginative, and the instrumental bit in the middle has a wonderful energy to it.

Add to this a video that features Neil and Chris with Joss Ackland as a mad hitchhiker in clips from their film It Couldn't Happen Here, and an extended mix featuring samples of the same, and really, you can't go wrong...
