I am sad/ angry and am going to blitz my house, which is a pit, to try to cheer myself up. Can anyone suggest some rousing happy music for me please?

Rock Lobster by the B52s always makes me smile.

'I Can See Clearly Now' - up lifting. But I always find a good blast of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' sorts me out - full volume.

You need to relax! I just sent this to someone else:

J S Bach. Brandenburg concerto no 2 in F, BWV 1047
Mozart. Piano concerto no 19 in F, K 459. On no account listen to no 20 in D minor K466.
Gershwin. Rhapsody in Blue.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhvPoBwMfSA well this is probably a bit too happy for you, but - think of the great nights out to come, when you can bop away to some fun music and forget all about him!
I do find with housework something upbeat helps me get it done more quickly so this might help for that at least.
Do hope you're not too sad. I remember I used to try and look at these things as a lucky escape!

Depends what sort of rousing music you want. If you want genuine happy music that Pharrell song, Happy, is insanely catchy and upbeat. May be too much for you in your current frame of mind though?

I find funky music you can dance to is great for times like this, so my list goes -

Hey Ya by Outkast

Apache - the incredible Bongo band (!) version

Superstition by Stevie Wonder

I know you got soul - Bobby Byrd

There's more, I have a whole playlist.
