We know two things in this world to be true: One, that laughter is the best medicine, and two, that Bob Marley sings, "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." Therefore, we can determine that songs about laughing are the ultimate remedy for any ailment.     

What's the best song about laughing? Madonna's hit, "Laugh to Keep from Crying" tops our list. In this song, Madge shares some of the sage advice she's had to learn as a celebrity whose personal life is anything but private. The title track on Ice Cube's seventh studio album "Laugh Now, Cry Later," raps about a disregard for consequences in order to find the ultimate pleasure in the moment.  

If rock is more your thing check out The Rolling Stones jam, "Laugh I Nearly Died," or John Mellencamp's "Between a Laugh and a Tear." Vote up the best song about laughing below, and be sure to add any of your favorite laughter songs that we might have missed!
