Since the goal of every motorcycle is to get passing glances from surprised pedestrians and motorists, I think this would accomplish that goal nicely.

I really hate the word hater.

I really don’t like “Happy,” that feel good song by Pharrell Williams which is played incessantly in every restaurant, airport, and mall worldwide. It’s unoriginal, uninspired, and the fact that it is catchy does not make up for its lack of quality songwriting (Pharrell’s producers could have tracked four minutes of sustained bowl movements over that beat, and people would still dance to it). But I’m convinced that Pharrell himself doesn’t like it.

Remember Pharrell back in the 2000’s, when he was rapping with artists like Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z? He used to talk about money, sex, drugs, and street violence like most other rappers. Like other famous rap artists of the time, his bad-ass attitude was essential to his public perception.
But then he went solo, releasing In My Mind, a mediocre soul-pop and rap combo which everyone agreed was not up to the standards of his previous work. He began to fade from the public eye, along with his hard-core personality.
In my opinion, “Happy” is nothing more than Pharrell’s final attempt to stay in the spotlight. Given the nature of his previous work, what would motivate him to release a sub-par blend of “Blurred Lines” and 70’s soul-pop other than to grab the attention of pre-teens and forty-somethings with no taste in music? It’s the same reason he wears those stupid hats: he’s kicking and screaming for attention just like Miley Cyrus.
I simply cannot believe that Pharrell heard the final version of that song and thought it was any good. It’s nothing more than his last attempt at staying famous, and, as I’m sure delights him, its working.
