If something is going to go viral online I have an extra special pleasure when it is something that lifts us up, lightens the load, shakes off some of the dust and the rust and shows the best of us. I get that same warm fuzzy feeling listening to #Happy as when I see the postings for the #HumansofNewYork project ( #HONY ). There's something fun about watching people dance. This song touches people in a place that really allows them to let down their guard. It's lovely. It's real. You'll laugh out loud from pure joy of its authenticity. When Pharrel Williams was talking to Oprah about how this song started, he said no one really was interested until his made the video - and noteworthy, it is indeed. It's called Happy - The World's First 24 Hour Music Video. It's just that - 24 hours of that song played out at a gas station and all over with PW and people from everywhere singing it with conviction and dancing with abandon all over their town. This totally peeked my attention because there is only ONE other song in my world that can stand that test - 24hour loop-to-loop playtime. . . .If you're interested, write me a message.
#Happy is really a catchy tune. The videos from around the world show us again how much we're the same inside. Hello Mumbai! Shout out to New York City! It's not even possible to not dance to or at least tap your foot, snap a finger. Rarely it seems, is there that special magic in music that happens when the melody really swings, the singer surprises repeatedly with their lightness and sensitivity and then you realize that every word in the lyrics is a truth that reaches across the miles & millennia. It's like a mantra.
Come along if you feel like a house without a roof
Come along is you feel like happiness is a truth
Come along if you feel you know what happiness is to you
Come along if you'd feel like that's what you want to do

Just a note, for 'gepgraphic' reasons I was not able to post this video from its original source - The #OprahWinfrey Network (OWN), only from FB. Not all content from the USA is available worldwide. There is much randomness in the sharing, but we can still tell the story and share the love . . .Be HAPPY !
