2014 in review: music

It’s that time of year again! I can’t believe 2014 is already coming to an end. It’s been such an eventful and exciting year (as evidenced by the significant lack of posts on here – my apologies!) and I love that music can play such a great role in helping to remember all those amazing moments.

Daniel Kim from Pop Danthology has done it again this year with an amazing mash-up of all the hits of 2014. I’m glad to see Happy makes it back in this year, because the Pharrell concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival in July was one of my musical highlights of the year. I’m also excited to see that Let It Go from Frozen makes an appearance right at the end because that song must have been stuck in my head for about six months! Did your favourite song of 2014 get a mention?

friday film: happy

pharrell-happy-music-video-01I love the concept of Pharrell’s new music video – it’s 24 hours of random people dancing down the street to his new song, Happy. Fortunately, it’s the kind of song you can listen to again and again, and it’s just so… happy!

There are some amazing dancers (my favourites are probably the swing dancing couple at 9.08am and Jimmy Kimmel giving a walk-through tour of his studio at 11.48am) and Pharrell himself shows up on the hour every hour.

The video will automatically start at whatever time it is for you where you’re watching but you can skip on through to any time you like. Enjoy – and get happy!
