Do We Hate Happy?

This song is delightful.

When it plays in Despicable Me 2, I dance around the living room.

Boomer is usually not amused.

When they played it on our local pop station, one of the DJs commented that it wouldn't be a successful single because it was too happy and cheesy.


We do think that though. We question relationships that seem 'too happy'. We question the co-worker who is 'too happy'. That friend that is just always too damn happy.


I think there are situations where it is just too much; you know, the person who is trying too hard to cover up some underlying unhappiness. That said. I'm happy.

I'm gonna dance now.  Press play, and dance with me.

We totally need more happy in this world! Annnnd I love this song, Pharrell can do no wrong in my book (his fine anti-aging ass..) so screw those DJs. Annd if you're looking for more happiness, you should definitely check out the documentary "Happy", really made me reevaluate how I perceive happiness. With that said, I'm dancing right along side you girl!

I freaking needed this. Thank you, lovely girl.

And now my I'm butt dancing in my chair as I listen to the uber talented Pharrell.

I am obsessed. And I am playing it at my wedding somehow. And dancing and clapping A LOT.

Love the Pharell song now add Janelle Monae "Tightrope." You got some real happy dancing... Let's not forget "That's Right, You're Not From Texas" by Lyle Lovett :)

This is a perfect song to kick off the weekend. And I think those DJs are just bitter with their own lives. I for one enjoy happy!
