Oprah Shows Pharrell The Worldwide Power of His Song and Reduces Him to Happy Tears
I like Pharrell’s song, “Happy.” I think you’d have to be some kind of devil-worshipping heathen monster not to like it. It’s catchy. It’s infectious, and it is positive and upbeat. But what’s truly remarkable about any song, or any movie, or a piece of literature, is its ability to transcend the charts or the box office and to become this kind of globally beloved art.
This is not something I’d normally feature here (we don’t cover music, and we don’t have that much interest in Oprah Winfrey), but I was struck not only by the way that the entire world has taken to this son, but Pharrell’s genuine reaction to it. The guy has a funny hat, but he’s got a good heart.
Naturally, the video Oprah showed Pharrell reminded me of this, which never fails to move me. I swear to God, it could end world wars.
