Today I am posting what my son and I have deemed our “theme song” for our trip to Arizona. We have spent nearly every minute of our time outside in the fabulous sunshine and blue skies. It just makes us feel happy and so does this song! We have been “clapping along” and have probably been spotted looking like many of the people shown in this fantastic music video. 🙂
We may slowly be killing the song as we have listened to it so much over the last few days, but what else would you do with a theme song? This is a great song by Pharrell Williams, who I think is just one of the coolest dudes in the music industry. He has also got to be on the busiest guys in the industry – producer, fashion designer, songwriter, drummer, performer … what doesn’t he do?
This has been an especially big year for Pharrell. He was nominated for 7 Grammy Awards, including one for this song; in addition, this song was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song (from the movie Despicable Me). He also played a key role in one of 2013’s biggest hits and Grammy award-winning song – “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk. He is an amazingly talented guy. Something else about him that I think is amazing … Pharrell is 40 years old, but have you seen him? He looks like he is 25!
