Gentle Giant's The Missing Piece is full of cheerful songs, instrumentally, anyway.
If you have nothing, you have everything.

Just because something isn't upbeat doesn't mean it won't cheer you up, right? So why not go with a prog classic that most progheads enjoy? (You think of one.)

If it doesn't have to be prog (although this thread is in the prog lounge), then ... why not go with anything from Gil Scott-Heron (for the vibe of the songs, not the messages in the lyrics)?

Shiny Happy People by REM. You didn't say a song that could cheer someone up without making them nauseous.

when I really need to cheer up I listen to early Neil Young (Harvest, After the Gold Rush).  This puts my problems in perspective and I suddenly find myself very happy not to be Neil Young.

Prelude: Song of the Gulls/Islands - King Crimson (among others, and yes i do group these two together, because they should've been as such on the original album)

Gabriel's vocal workout on The Battle of Epping Forest has cheered up a few people I know in the past who'd never heard it before. They laughed in astonishment.
