“Happy” Video for For All the GMG Puppy-Dog-Animal Lovers !

In honor of National Puppy Day which, depending on what publication you read, was either the 21st of March or is upcoming tomorrow, on the 23rd of March ~

National Puppy Day is an unofficial holiday created to encourage the adoption of 10,000 puppies.

And yes, the lyrics have been rewritten just for puppy love!

Pharrell’s original “Happy,” posted on GMG in February:

Happy Friday!

VIDEO: Excellent songs up for Oscars tonight — and lots of great music in town too

OK, tonight most of us will be celebrating films, but Oscar night is also a perfect time celebrate great songs — and this is a particularly good year for song nominations.

Our two favorites are “Happy” by Pharrell Williams (the guy with the funny Smokey the Bear hat who won the Record of the Year Grammy with Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers) from the movie Despicable Me 2; and “Ordinary Love” by U2 from the movie Mandella: Long Walk to Freedom.  I particularly like Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” video (not from the movie).   Check out this dancing!

Among the Best Picture nominees is American Hustle, part of which was filmed down the road in Salem.

If you like to be out on Oscar night and just follow the events on your phone, there’s plenty of excellent music, starting with The Jazz Brewers at the Brew Pub at 5pm and one of our favorites, Inge Berge, at The Rhumb Line at 7:30.  See tonight’s full live music schedule here.
