Today (May 1) marks the first day of Mental Health Month, and artists from Julie Andrews to Lady Gaga have channeled their bright vocals for happy hits throughout the decades.

Billboard compiled a list of 31 songs that have helped listeners maintain a positive outlook, many of which have topped the Billboard Hot 100, been performed at the Grammy Awards and been placed in blockbuster movies. Alessia Cara appears twice on the lineup for her solo single "Scars to Your Beautiful" about loving one's body and for her joint hit with Logic and Khalid titled after the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number "1-800-273-8255."

More recently, the 2019 Elton John biopic Rocketman beautifully recreated the music video for his saucy survivor anthem "I'm Still Standing" that he co-wrote with his long-time collaborator Bernie Taupin. On the May 2-dated Hot 100 chart, Demi Lovato's unapologetic ode to self-love "I Love Me" stands tall at No. 42 even when she sings she's her "own worst critic/ Talk a whole lot of sh--/ But I'm a ten out of ten/ Even when I forget."

So which positive anthem will you be bumping throughout Mental Health Month? Vote below!
