No other song routinely has us toe-tapping and nodding along at our desks like Pharrell's "Happy." Some of us even shed a tear along with him when Pharrell cried on Oprah about how people's enjoyment of the song had touched his life.

But what happens when the "Happy" music video has no music? 

It's still full of happy, that's what.

Sure, it begins with Pharrell singing along to himself in a dark, creepy alley and why is he there?

But then it becomes a montage of people enjoying themselves which is a pretty cool thing to see.

Forget the song of summer. Let's talk about the song of the century.

"Happy" by Pharrell might be one of the best songs ever written, produced, recorded, and played anywhere in the world. The infectious joy of the song had Pharrell crying happy tears in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

We understand, Pharrell! The song makes us cry happy tears, too! 

"I don't know why I'm crying on Oprah," Pharrell said, after watching a montage of people from around the world enjoying his song.

"It's overwhelming, because it's like I love what I do, and I just appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I could make it to this point to feel that."

"I get it," Oprah responded.

"I so now get why it's so infectious, because it came from such a clear space that the energy was absolutely uninterrupted by anything other than letting it flow from heart to heart. And that's what happens when you see it."

Finally, something good comes out of Georgia politics!

Congressman John Lewis dancing to "Happy" by Pharrell might be the best thing to happen this legislative session. 

Yesterday, the International Day of Happiness, was also John Lewis' birthday. The last remaining member of the Civil Rights Movement's Big Six turned 74 recently and gathered with his staffers for a belated birthday celebration during which "Happy" was played.

The Congressman began dancing and declared "Happy" "his song." It's everybody's song, Congressman. It's probably a good enough song to bring about world peace.

"Get Lucky" singer Pharrell Williams was a big winner at the 2014 Grammy Awards, but the star of the entire broadcast - or at least Twitter - was his hat.

Everyone had something to say about Pharrell, and not because the wildly successful singer and producer earned seven nominations in five categories.

Smokey the Bear’s hat, Arby's restaurant logo and Harry Potter's headwear were among the famous lids compared to Pharrell's unusual Grammys look.

Like any Internet meme, soon enough the hat had inspired countless parodies, and even its own Twitter account with more than 14,000 Twitter followers.

He may not be on anyone's list of 2014 Grammy Awards fashion winners, but his style statement was the most buzzed about, so maybe the joke's on us?

In any case, scroll through some of the best memes of Pharrell's hat:

Robin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. are suing Marvin Gaye's family and Bridgeport Records, insisting that their summer smash "Blurred Lines" is an original hit.

That's right ... the artist accused of ripping off an earlier work is the one suing, not the reverse, leading some to believe it's all part of a big PR effort.

The trio's omnipresent single has, in recent months, been accused of being a takeoff on Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up" and/or Funkadelic's "Sexy Ways."

There has not been a whole lot made of this, though, which makes the lawsuit by Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. over "multiple adverse claims" seem dubious.

Pharrell doesn't like that Will.i.am, but he does like Dr. Seuss apparently.

Believe it or not, the beloved children's book author is being dragged into a trademark dispute between the rapper/producer and the Black Eyed Peas member.

Allow us to explain ...

  • Pharrell Photo
  • Will He Is

Pharrell, who's on two huge hits right now ("Get Lucky" by Daft Punk and "Blurred Lines" with Robin Thicke), recently launched a YouTube channel, I Am Other.

Will.i.am is trying to block him from using the name, and he's pissed.

According to Pharrell, Will has already sent him a nasty cease and desist letter informing P that he owns the rights to all things with an "I Am" element.
