Good time, 2014
Pharrell Williams - Happy
You all know this song and you love it - whether you’ll admit it or not. Let’s be fair, you’d have a heart of pitch black coal and tar-filed veins if you’re not getting a smile on your face when this thing plays, cause it’s so damn positive. Admittedly it’s not what I usually buy genre-wise, but in my opinion, this might just be the best pop song written in the last 10 years if not more.
There’s nothing special about the release as such (except for good looks), as it’s the standard single release from the album version of Happy. A yellow 7” single was also released last year with the song “Just A Cloud Away” on the b-side and a cover with minions from the movie Despicable Me 2 (which is great movie btw.!) - but that one is going for crazy sums right now (seems like one copy was sold for nearly $200 on Discogs!). This version “just” has the instrumental track for Happy on the b-side, which is also a surprisingly joyful listen.
It’s a pretty cheap buy (£5.50-ish on Amazon), so if you like the song, but don’t feel like buying an entire Pharrell album, I’d suggest you go for this one.
