#1. "Unwritten"—Natasha Bedingfield
There is something powerful and beautiful about the fact that we are full of possibility and potential. We are undefined, and each day we are provided with blank pages that we can fill. No one else can do what you can do, and what an amazing thing it is once you finally do it!
#2. "I Gotta Feeling"—The Black Eyed Peas
Sometimes we just have a "feeling" about something. While this is often intuition letting us know about things we should be careful of, it can also be a good feeling about the present and the future that is to come. So when you have that good feeling, enjoy it!
#3. "Good to Be Alive"—Andy Grammer
A song with a positive and upbeat message that embraces and celebrates being alive and the moment one is grateful for. Nothing like celebrating and appreciating the moment where dreams come true and recognizing that it's good to be alive!
#4. "On Top of the World"—Imagine Dragons
Ah, the feeling of being on top of the world. It's a great feeling. It doesn't come often, and sometimes it doesn't come soon enough. But when it comes, celebrate it because it normally only comes after hard work, perseverance, determination, sweat, failure, and hopefully success!
#5. "Hall of Fame"—The Script ft. will.i.am.
We all have the potential to "be the greatest." Not always in the same things, talents, or fields, but greatness is in all of us. Which is a wonderful thing! So go ahead, make it into your "Hall of Fame."
#6. "The Cup of Life"—Ricky Martin
Something about this song just gets me pumped! It is a song worthy of both the climb and the view from the top. So it was definitely a good choice for the World Cup.
#7. "Good Feeling"—Flo Rida
There's plenty to give and have a good feeling about in this song. Lots of things to overcome and just as many to celebrate.
#8. "Good Life"—One Republic
There are many things in life to be thankful for, but sometimes it's important to just take the time to be thankful for life and to remember that life can be and is good.
#9. "Best Day of My Life"—American Authors
The narrative of the song is not a complete fit but the chorus is the takeaway. You're celebrating this day and this moment, so hopefully it can be one of the best days of your life.
#10. "Can't Hold Us"—Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
What a feeling, to not be able to be held down! It's possible you know that already from your moment, but if you had a doubt remember that everything is possible, and the sky's the limit.
#11. "What a Wonderful World"—Louis Armstrong
Taking the time to appreciate the wonderful world that exists is something that we should do often and arguably daily, but definitely in great moments.
#12. "I Feel Good"—James Brown
This one speaks for itself. What is there not to appreciate in a great moment that can't be related to feeling good?
#13. "Happy"—Pharrell Williams
Sometimes in life and in moments it's just nice to appreciate the happiness in that time.
#14. "I'm Good"—The Mowgli's
Making the most of ourselves and improving ourselves, living life how we should, recognizing that we only live once, and embracing the fact that all things considered, we're good makes this song great for moments that are worth celebrating and life in general.

This is an oldie but a goodie. It's definitely worth celebrating good times. Let's celebrate!
