Positive Psychology on the Radio

24 Mar

happy

I’ve noticed that there are a lot of positive songs on the radio lately. “The Best Day of My Life,” “Let It Go,” “Counting Stars,” “Roar,” etc. This is probably really good for everyone who commutes in traffic every day. It probably relieves a lot of stress and builds confidence before facing the work day. However, that Pharrell Williams song “Happy” is a little brainwash-y. I liked it at first when it was on http://www.24hoursofhappy.com and it didn’t have a beginning or end. It was like a background groovey song. Then when it came on the radio and the masses got a listen, it became a weird “senna-like” (catch that “Brave New World” reference?!) anthem that gets played every few minutes on the radio. Needless to say I’m over it. I feel like I might as well be in a weird Divergent type of reality when I find it on 3 radio stations at the same time when I channel surf. Are we ho-hum zombies now? Over it!
