If it seems like there was a lot of doom and gloom on the airwaves this year, you're not wrong. Sad, moody, sitting-in-a-graveyard songs were all the rage.

But everyone needs a little sunshine, a jolt of joy to get the feet moving, the blood pumping and trigger one of those involuntary smiles that starts on the inside and transforms your face.

CBC Music went digging for the happiest, funniest, catchiest, most uplifting and inspiring tunes of 2013 and paired them with cute animal photos for a little icing on the cake. Click through the gallery above and listen to the playlist below for an instant injection of December delight.
