Pharrell Williams-Happy

First time heard this song was in spin class.  Lee had it on his playlist during the summer=fall in 2013.  I am a rocker so I do not listen to pop stations.  It is categorized under neo soul and funk. This song stuck with me. Thank you again Lee for your inspiration. You are the man who has so much to give to your students.  There is no instructor that can touch your talent.  God Bless you and your family.

Lee, You make me so happy when I can ride with you.

Originally released last summer on the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack, “Happy” got a post-“Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky” boost late last year thanks to a viral music video and Academy Award nomination. Contiguously peppy and brilliantly simple, it seems likely to dominate radio for weeks to come.

Found the HAPPY video with Bermuda as it’s background.  Special meaning because I cruised there from New York to Bermuda as a Professional dancer for two seasons. HAPPY MEMORIES.

Let The Fire Burn: MOVE and The City of Philadelphia.

This day I took a dance class at the Jazz Dance Center at 2020 Samson Street in the afternoon.  I remember I came out of the studio and looked up and saw dark black smoke coming from West Philly.  I drove home to Roxbough and turned on the TV.  Mayor Goode had decided to drop a bomb the new location of MOVE on Osage Avenue. Sixty-one homes were destroyed by the six-alarm blaze, one of the largest in the city’s history.

I was a Temple University undergraduate student when  the MOVE commune started their terrorism for over a decade.  Mayor Rizzo took MOVE out of Powelton Village area after they had shot a cop dead, officer James Ramp.

I will defiantly view this film since it is a part of Philadelphia’s history that I lived through. Then, I will write my review.
