Simple Pleasure Sunday: "Happy" by Pharrell Williams

me happy at Cafe de Flore in Paris
clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth

I love happy music as I grew up listening to The Beatles. So, it doesn't really surprise me that I adore the hit song Happy by Pharrell Williams. This may be my song of the summer...

I also love that fans had made their own music videos, dancing along to this song. This was inspired by the artist himself. You see, Pharrell actually launched the world's first 24-hour-long music video, with the feel-good song on repeat and set in LA, which you can view at 24hoursofhappy.com. He asked for videos to be posted on YouTube with #HAPPYDAY and submitted to this website to celebrate the UN's International Day of Happiness on March 20th. As a result, there are so many of these 4-minute-long cover videos posted online. Check out this website to see how many videos have been created worldwide. Happiness is apparently contagious!
