A little strange, but I'm a big fan of this guy:

In general, is a great place to find creative-commons licensed music =)

Vince Gauraldi's Peanuts music never fails to put me in good mood. I have a friend building a slideshow that is currently using his music.

Billy Joel is good, especially In the Middle of the Night and River of Dreams. I think most Motown songs are good for this, too.

Surprisingly little known group Action Figure Party (;=list&pid;=9447 ) has some great mainly instrumental grooves. Somewhere between Jazz and Hiphop.

You can try the pop classical "Can You Feel It" from The Jacksons (very uplifting), or maybe some pop-rock "Beautiful Day" - U2, "Don't Stop Me Now" Queen, "Always Look at the Bright Side of Life" by Monty Python, or, why not, "Komodo" - Mauro Picoto a house track.
You can use all of these, or if you want to find something more "special" go to or, and there you can find similar tracks. Good luck!

I recently worked on a similar slide show, I began by showing really moving pictures together with Andy Mckee's "For my father" to set up a mellow, kinda sad mood, but then, struck the audience with kind of like blooper pics or funny pics, and found the version of "I like to move it" from Madagaskar (The Movie) did all the work. I think it is funny and lets you mess with the funniest pics by giving you a nice background
