I don't really like listening to music very much (like at all), but this song is one of my few exceptions.


Please post about whether you like this song or not, or shed light to your favorite songs/bands.

It's an alright song. I don't really like music with lyrics. I prefer club music like dubstep , dance, electric, techno, ect..
From my perspective - It's pretty dull. Absolutely nothing interesting harmonically, no polyphony in melodies, very little use of interesting timbre, no development of themes, very repetitive. I don't really like this song.

My favourite songs/bands

Basically anyone who can pull off interesting melody, harmony and/or timbre and decent development of a piece of music. (Alkan, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Above and Beyond, Hallucinogen, Astral Projection...)

I'm sort of like @giblit - I don't really like music with lyrics, I can't understand them when sung unless I really concentrate (don't know why), though I am fine when the voice is used as an instrument itself, as in as a seperate melody line.

I generally prefer music from the Baroque and late Romantic / early 20th century eras of music, people like J.S.Bach, Ravel, Debussy, Brahms, Saint-Saens, etc.
Just like programming languages, I LOVE music. My personal collection ranges wide: Mozart, Beethoven, Rob Zombie, Eminem, Metallica, Megadeth, Seal, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Glenn Miller, etc.

Basically my collection covers every genre.

The song is fine, but the video completely distracts from it because of everything going on in it.
The song is alright. I wouldn't say I'm crazy about it, but I don't hate it, and that says a lot for me (I'm very critical of most music).

The over-the-top cheerful lyrics remind me a lot of Deee-lite - Smile On:
Don't mind all the hating. (None of these guys are happy here.)

I rather enjoyed it. Though, it won't necessarily go on my "to keep" playlist...

My likes?
Hard to define. I don't like heavy metal or hard rap. Or the Beach Boys. Other than that, it's typically on a per-song basis.

I do enjoy classical, waveform, a lot of electronica already mentioned above, good country (not that horrid country rock), Enya, Enigma, Asia, David Arkenstone, Kitaro, uh, Evermind, Nirwana, uh..., The Mamas and the Papas, uh, lots of stuff. (Maybe I should go take a look at my music racks and come back?)

Lindsey Stirling.
I absolutely love this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg7L0OQiN78 (Beyond the Veil)

Yeah, lindsey Stirling is really good with the violin. She plays the kind of music I like. I like her crystallize better though. The ones with Pentatonix and her are also pretty good.

cool song, its catchy just not really my kind of music. However compared to its subject matter I would say it ranks higher than 90% of main stream music
Can't say I can really get into Happy. As has been mentioned I think it's too repetitive, ironically it doesn't evoke the emotion advertised.
I _am_ a fan of The Cat Empire, one of my favourite songs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsgBtSCnUMU
I'm also a massive fan of Meatloaf and have been since early high-school.
When I program, I listen to instrumental, jazz, or classical. I tried programming while listening to music like "Hey Mickey", "Enter Sandman", "I Disappear", "Puttin on the Ritz", "I Would Do Anything For Love", etc., but kept finding myself singing along instead of programming. Outside of programming, I will listen to all of it.

I'm also familiar with Lindsey Stirling's music. Very powerful.

While I don't completely disagree Drrockso, what kind of music would you prefer?

Meh, if they going to have words at least make them so you can understand instead of some creepy looking dude swinging his head and mumbling jibberish. I'm not a big fan for screamo/metal.
You can actually understand what Nathan Explosion is saying, at least somewhat better than regular metal bands.:p Plus the show is hilarious.

cacaca Ya baby!!

Maybe it's just me then, because I couldn't understand a single word.
