Whoosh! That’s the sound of the world passing me by.
As Pharrel Williams performed his mega hit, “Happy,” on the big TV screen in my boss’s office, some of my colleagues, who are also nearing decrepitude, watched approvingly. They liked the song and dance number. Or at least they said they did.
In any case, they were familiar with this latest dance craze. I was not. To be sure the dancers were quite agile, but the music was…well, let’s put it this way, barely the B-side of a Motown single from back in the day — way back in the day. This Pharrel Williams seems like a pleasant enough fellow, but he ain’t no Smokey Robinson.
