Upbeat, Optimistic Songs?#1

Hi all, I'm wondering if you could point me toward some songs that fit Elle Woods's personality from Legally Blonde: upbeat, positive, happy, bubbly, etc. I'm going to be auditioning for Elle Woods (at some point in the future, after the world opens back up), and I'm looking for songs that are upbeat and optimistic. Right now I'm considering "Shine Like the Sun" from 9 to 5 (but that's hard to get a 16-bar selection from), "Right Hand Man" from Something Rotten!, "Find Your Grail" from Spamalot (although I wonder if that really fits Elle), "Raise You Up/Just Be" from Kinky Boots (also not sure if that really fits Elle), and "My Strongest Suit" from Aida (too overdone?). Any other songs you can think of that are in a similar vein?

I really like "My Strongest Suit" for Elle! A couple other ideas that come to mind are "Fly, Fly Away" from Catch Me If You Can, "One Perfect Moment" from Bring It On, and "Morning Person" from Shrek. Good luck with your audition!
