'Happy', de Pharrell Williams, ¿una canción que te
hace sentir feliz?

The song of singer / songwriter / producer / rapper Pharrell


Williams was number one for over a month.

Generated innumerable covers; Including one of the Academy


Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, as she repeated her
guest star role in the 100th episode of Glee.
What's in this song, which is so infectiously enjoyable that
even Meryl Streep had to dance when Williams sang it at the
Oscars?
Is the tune sticky? Is it the insistent nature of that letter as it
says "Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth"? Is it
that extra vitality you feel when the chorus girls sing slightly
Because I'm happpppppyyyyy (Because I'm happy)? Or is it
the joy of seeing Williams and several other people dancing,
jumping and singing along with the song in the music video?
Yes.
In short, the song is all those things, even as it managed to
capture seemingly the download of happiness in its lyrics and
melody.

Not a bad trick for a song that slowly went from being a single
on the soundtrack of My Favorite Villain 2 last summer to a
popularity that Robert Morast, a writer for Virginian-Pilot,
recently discussed in a debate about whether it should be
considered To be the official state song for Virginia in the
United States.
"The successful Pharrell song is a clash of music that raises the mood,"
wrote Morast, who was more partial to Carter Family's Can the Circle Be
Unbroken. "And while it's okay to be happy, the best art is done with A
series of emotional perspectives. "

Even with its slow rise, Happy attracted attention from the start. Prior
to its release it was quickly named "an instant contender for Summer
Song 2013" by Rolling Stone. Since then, he has topped the charts in
more than a dozen countries besides the United States, including the
United Kingdom, France, Germany and Poland.

Violinist Lindsey Stirling, who worked with John Legend and mixes
classical-style music with electronic dub-step rhythms, simply asks,
"How can you not love (Happy)?"
"I was with a friend, and when Happy rang, her baby started to kick and
try to dance," Stirling said. "We laughed hysterically and said 'even
babies love this song.'"

He said he believes that the reason Happy is so loved is because of his


inspiring message.

"I'm thrilled when something positive turns out to be so popular," said


Stirling, whose album, Shatter Me, will be released in late April. "It's
good feelings and not controversial at all. Happy ".
Williams teamed up with the United Nations Foundation in celebration
of this week's International Happiness Day by encouraging fans to
donate to the organization and send content to their site
24HoursofHappiness.com.

Visitors are asked to tag their presentations, whether dancing, singing


or just "being happy" with the #HappyDay hashtag. On Thursday night,
in every time zone around the world, Williams will highlight some of the
best.
Happy is also one of the singles on Williams' new album, Girl, which has
already reached number one in almost 80 countries and music
streaming giant Spotify. The singer is overwhelmed by goodwill.

"This is probably the humblest I've ever been in my life," Williams told
the Los Angeles Times about his song and his reaction to it. "Because it's
something bigger than me, greater than everything I've ever done."
There is no doubt that that makes him happy.
