There’s something about happy sounding music that makes many a music snob turn up their noses. It’s almost as if to be considered serious about art your brain has to have a jaundiced and cynical view of anything that could put joy in people’s hearts. A pessimist is never disappointed somebody once sang and maybe that’s at the core of it for the anti-cheerful brigade. The shield of negativity protects them from being let down and in an ironic way keeps them content, or dare we say it, happy.
So here’s the new video from French funsters We Were Evergreen. It’s one to press play and watch your body react with delirious bad dancing, silly smiles and good vibes as if you’ve just swallowed some Jedward pills. The ratio of likes to dislikes on You Tube says it all really. We’re serious when we say we love this song. For those of a more downward persuasion, enjoy your negative bubble, but maybe one day it’s worth giving it a pop?
