Did Pharrell Williams borrow the idea for "Happy" from C2C?

 C2C
- C2C -
There is a question that has been burning in my mind ever since I became aware of a team of four DJ's/Beatmaster/Performance Artists known as C2C out of France. C2C came up with their own original song titled "Happy", as original as DJ's can be of course, as they sample other peoples songs into their own. Their music video for the song features some amazing dancing, and similarly to Pharrel's release, there was even a contest to involve fans from around the world. This immediately got me wondering after I heard it and saw the video below... Did Pharrell Williams ever hear/watch this C2C version of Happy before he penned his own song titled Happy, complete with dance video and contest? C2C released their own Happy song in December 2012 and Pharrell Williams released his version of Happy in November 2013, nearly one year later than C2C.  Perhaps it does not matter, for there is nothing new under the sun.  Regardless, C2C deserves some love, for they are a very talented group of guys who know how to muster up excellent music video producers as well. - GC

UPDATE/ANSWER TO THIS POST/QUESTION: A poster on Reddit known as GTAVSUCKS wrote that he thought Pharrell had once admitted that Ce Lo Green wrote the song for Pharrell. However, after doing some research, was led to a story about the history of the song at Contact Music that states: "In an interview with Howard Stern for his US radio show, Pharrell said: ''[Cee Lo Green] wanted to do it .. and he did do it. He sounded amazing on it. He burns my version! But ... how do I say this diplomatically? The powers that be, at the time, did not see it fit for him. Some folks on his team just felt that the priority should be on [Cee Lo's] album at the time [2012's 'Cee Lo's Magic Moment'], so they elected not to do that song."

C2C - Happy


Here is one more very cool song titled Delta :)

C2C - Delta


and maybe the coolest of their songs, maybe.... (because they are all pretty grooving)

Down The Road (staring Richie Jackson)

MusicTelevision.Com presents Birdy's song Not About Angeles

The first time we featured Birdy and four of her videos was back in a March of 2012 post where we wrote: "The songs below are by a gifted girl who can sit down at the piano and sing her ass off with no pomp or circumstance and deliver the goods with exceptional perfection. Her sensitive and emotionally driven angelic voice is mind alteringly beautiful."  

Standing by our previous statement, we are proud to present the latest single from Birdy titled Not About Angels from The Fault In Our Stars film soundtrack.  Enjoy! GC

One more from Michael Jackson - A Place With No Name

Michael Jackson on Music Television

Just below is the latest and very beautiful music video from Michael Jackson's posthumous album titled XSCAPE, an album of previously unreleased Michael Jackson songs. The album was produced and curated by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson's essence and integrity. It's a process Reid calls "contemporizing." The list of producers include global hitmakers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, and John McClain.

The beautiful music of London Grammar

MusicTelevision.Com proudly presents London Grammer

These videos below were recently featured on our sister site The Indies at TheIndies.Com. We are very pleased to share these music videos here for those who have not yet heard the trio known as London Grammar and songs from their debut album titled If You Wait.

The thing that is so impressive about this group is their lack of attempting to impress with anything other than the elegance of their music. The music is minimalist, yet rich. The group's vocalist, Hannah Reid, exudes a certain stillness, focus and control. Her voice is deliciously lush, which is all she needs as she simply stands in front of a microphone and delivers. Enjoy! - GC

Bobby Womack Has Left The Room

A fond farewell to one of the world's great soul artists.

Just got word (Friday June 28, 2014) from a Rolling Stone feed moments ago that Bobby Womack has passed away at age 70.

RIP Bobby Womack

If you missed this recent 2013 BBC documentary on the life of Bobby Womack titled Across A 110th Street, this is it below. It's filled with great stories, music and too many great artists to even mention.



Below is a tasty classic track from 1988 by Womack & Womack titled Teardrops



Just below is an old school Todd Rungren video with Bobby and many others helping Todd make a recording with a full band of real players,w strings, horns and all. This video is filled with sweet candid footage from the actual recording session for Rundgren's 1989 record titled Nearly Human.

Todd Rundgren - Want Of A Nail (featuring Bobby Womack)


The Rolling Stones paid tribute to Bobby Womack, who wrote one of their songs from 1964 titled It's All Over Now.
