For mood changing uplifting music view and listen to this clip from the 1939 production of the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the payoff of uplifting soundtrack comes at the 4:00 minute mark.
Hope the OP doesn't consider this entry too OT, but it is a short musical piece that uplifted my spirits when I first saw and heard this movie on TV in the 50's, and still uplifts today.

There was even uplifting music for fans of Heavy Metal in this great movie, also with an uplifting soundtrack.

Try this, Whitney always puts me in a good mood, especially this version of her #1 single ever since I bought it over 30 years ago as a vinyl EP single at the Ramstein AV store.
