Here at HuffPost Good News, our mission is to highlight all that is good and wonderful in the world -- from heroism and triumph, to serendipity and generosity. Of course, that mission is easily extended to the arts -- what could be more uplifting than a fabulous film, a gorgeous photograph, a beautiful painting?

Music is the one art form that is universal in its ability to change our moods: Who doesn't turn to music after a break-up? Who doesn't need a playlist for a blue Monday morning?

And so, we give you the ultimate feel-good playlist: 25 songs that are the auditory equivalent of our favorite Good News stories. A mix of the old and the new, the corny and the indie, these songs will make you smile and tap your feet; they'll cheer you up and remind you of the best in all of us.
