The movie: Despicable Me 2
The song: 'Happy', Pharrell Williams

It’s impossible to listen to this song and not embrace its message - or clap along, for that matter. Pharrell Williams came up with a beauty when he penned this Motown-esque number, as relevant to today’s chart as it is to the children’s movie it was written for.

Bonus knowledge: Williams’ 24-hour music video for the song featured the singer himself as well as cameos from Kelly Osbourne, Magic Johnson, Jimmy Kimmel, Steve Carell and Jamie Foxx among others.
