It's been a long time since I have really enjoyed a decent song. On the job while working in a factory, the radio plays all day, but the music makes me miserable. I never thought the day would come that I would be so sick of hearing rap music. Today, people throw anything on a record and call it music. Sometimes it sounds as if rap music is made by artists speaking in tongues. In other words, I don't understand nothing that the rap artist is rapping about. Where did all of the love songs go? Where did all of the songs with meaning and feeling go? Where did the music altogether go?

The happy song by Pharrell Williams was heard on the radio at work one day.  The radio had a low volume, but I still could hear it in the back row behind me as my co-workers in I sat down in a row beside each other working.


I thought that I was hearing a Marvin Gaye tune that I had never heard before, but I knew that it had to be new because it played everyday. No one knew the song and whom it was by. We all just suddenly fell in love with the song, and people began to dance around in laughter on the job. Sometimes our mornings were slow and we were tired and ready to go home. However, the happy song brought us a meaningful and better feeling to music in this day and time although it had an old Motown style to it.

Happy was a new song that reminded us of old days. See video at

Hearing the happy song was like reliving the days of Motown. I was delighted to hear the song which captured my ear right away. It had a very catchy tune, and that is something that I haven't heard in a very long time. The music industry can say what they want and do what they want, but fast work for quick money is no good. The old music will never die. Believe it or not, some of the young crowd is tired of some of the new music that they are hearing today after hearing great and real music.
