33. “Happy” — Pharrell Williams
Yes, “Happy” has pretty much been beaten into the ground, but somehow it doesn’t get old. And it’s so fun to watch kids feel genuinely happy while they sing and dance to the lyrics.
34. “Pompeii” — Bastille
“Pompeii” is fun and educational: There are actual references to historical events in the song that might inspire kids to do a little research. Plus, it’s just a really fun, danceable party tune.
35. “Hurricane” — The Vamps
The Vamps have already shown up on various kid TV networks, and their song “Hurricane” is featured in Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day with Steve Carell. This song is kinda in the same vein as Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” — it’s cheery, fun and makes you want to get up and dance.
36. “What Do I Know?” — Ed Sheeran
Who doesn’t love Ed Sheeran? This song is all about saving the world with music and love. Positive vibes and so catchy too.
