Description
Happiness - "Happiness is that feeling that comes over you when you know life is good and you can't help but smile. It's the opposite of sadness." -https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/happiness
My opponent and I will put a link to a song in each argument. Each song should be one that makes you feel happy.
The voters will vote for whoever they think had the happier songs.
-inspiration for this debate came from King_8
Round 1
Published:
Let's do this!  Yeah!


Published:
BUNT. - Old Guitar

The version to listen to is whatever you have a paid version of or first month free thing etc. If you don't have any, too bad. 

YT Music, Spotify Premium and/or Apple Music (known as iTunes until 2 months ago).

Apple Music (iTunes doesn't exist anymore): https://music.apple.com/us/album/old-guitar-single/1073901355


Round 2
Published:
Your song was quite the toe-tapper!

Again apologies for my mistake in the first song.  It's Bobby McFerrin, not Bob Marley.

Let's move on...

My song for Round 2...


Published:
LSD - Genius (Banx & Ranx Reggae Remix - Official Audio) ft. Sia, Diplo, Labrinth

3 more links than listed available here: http://smarturl.it/GeniusRemixes


Round 3
Published:
This next song is special to me and my wife.  It's our "Song."


Published:
NOTE FOR ROUND 2: The SmartURL I linked to with links to the remix were actually to both remixes of the song made by Banx & Ranx and most default to the other remix.

PLEASE GO BACK TO ROUND 2 IF YOU DIDN'T USE ONE OF MY THREE LINKS AND ENSURE THAT YOU LISTENED TO THE REGGAE REMIX. The other Banx & Ranx Remix is not my entry.

Since you wish to go old school for R3, I will as well.

Billy Joel - Uptown Girl

Round 4
Published:
Ahh Billy Joel, now you're talking my language!  Well played!

I would be remiss if I didn't add this song to the list of Happy Music...


Published:
Sigala, Ella Eyre, Meghan Trainor ft. French Montana - Just Got Paid

Note for Ramshutu and a couple of others, this not the same version of Just Got Paid that I used in another debate a while back. This is the original, that was a remix.

2 more links than the three I list are available here: https://sigala.lnk.to/JustGotPaidyd

Apple Music (links to the album, you need to locate the track): https://music.apple.com/us/album/just-got-paid-feat-french-montana/1397962305
Round 5
Published:
I may be taking a risk here for my last song, but it is sentimental to me.  I am a native of Philadelphia, PA.  This song is woven into the culture and history of our beautiful city.  I don't even need to hear the whole song to make me happy, I just need the first few notes 

I give you...

I was thinking about doing a song battle with songs that make you laugh, but opted to go with happy music. It might be too hard to come up with 5 songs that make you laugh.

Made a mistake in my first song, Bob Marley is not singing Don't Worry Be Happy, it's Bobby McFerrin. I guess I lose Round One :-)

Not by my usual out of 10 style but by each round instead on which one was happier to me
Round 1
Pro: A classic, just very happy and nothing wrong with it, the talking can be slightly annoying but not by a lot
Con: I can see the happiness but it doesn’t make me happy listening to it, the way it sounds is annoying at times too, it’s not bad but it’s not good either, much more of a love song
Point to Pro
Round 2
Pro: This is basically cheating lol it just makes you want to dance and it’s like the best
Con: It’s not a bad song but it doesn’t make me happy, it’s just catchy and not a bad listen but not what I’m looking for
Point to Pro
Round 3
Pro: A little slow to be happy, not bad because of nostalgia because of the voice but not my favorite so far
Con: I wouldn’t necessarily call this a happy song, but it has feel good vibes
Point to Con
Round 4
Pro: Another classic, it’s slow but it’s good slow and it’s sooooo happy and I love it, it’s songs like this that make my day better
Con: Right off the bat I love the music, it’s such a stark contrast to the last song LOL, but the beat is suuuper catchy and it made me bob my head
NICE comeback Con, I did not expect a song to beat Pro’s this round!!
Point to Con
Round 5
Pro: It’s happy but it’s not the type of song I’d listen to to make myself happier, happy songs pretty much require a lot of lyrics
Con: I thought this would be an easy one for Con but this song was not happy at all, not to say it was bad but it doesn’t make me smile at all
Tie
So it was a tie WOW, good job both guys though
