What are some great songs that are upbeat?

I really want to re do my ipod, I have too many sad and screamo songs that I never listen to, and now a days it just seems I cant find anything to listen to on my ipod. I want some fun upbeat pop songs that make me want to dance! Or at least songs that have a good beat and make me want to sing, that arent slow and depressing. It can be from any generation of music (50s,60s,70s,etc). I have a lot from the 80's already. I have most the songs that are on the radio, so any songs that you can think of, as many as you can think of. Artist and song title if you know both so its easier for me to find. Thanks a million guys! :D
