Happy (Lenno Remix) – Pharrell WilliamsJune 11, 2014
I’ve always found Pharrell Williams to be a rather hit or miss pop artist, and his single “Happy” never really grabbed me, maybe because I wasn’t happy when I first heard it, I don’t know. What I do know is that Lenno‘s remix of it is amazing and makes me very happy indeed. Filled with funk, electric guitar, hand claps, piano, and fun reverb, this remix exudes the atmosphere of a disco dance floor on a hot summer night. Not that it sounds like disco, but you get the idea. The electric guitar dances through scales as the keyboard keeps the chords progressing and the vocals smile slowly and widely at the audience. The only downside to this track is that I will now be actively unhappy whenever I hear the original instead of Lenno’s version. Enjoy it!
