The Happiest Song Ever Is...?

With everything going on in the world today, this survey is just what we needed. In 2020, Studyfinds.org determined the happiest songs ever. And the winner is - “Mr. Blue Sky” from ELO. Jeff Lynne (ELO Co-founder) said “I’m really chuffed about it”! He even posted it on his Facebook page.

We agree! 🛸
