Music Geek Track Of The Week: “So Happy”
by Becca Gleason on March 23, 2012
It’s been a long time coming, not only for this music video, but for TOTW! Last week was the first time Matt and I accidentally “forgot” to post. It was largely my fault, but I promise this week’s track is worth double because I’ve been waiting for it for over a year.
Meet Ludwig Goransson. Some may know him as composer of the hit shows Community and Happy Endings. Others may know him as the guitarist and producer of Donald Glover’s Childish Gambino project. And many of you may have mistaken him for Jesus because their long flowing locks do resemble one another. Regardless, now you can know him as Ludovin the Swedish singer who can make us all “So Happy.”
The composer within Ludwig really did his job, because this song makes me feel like I’m riding in a convertible through a rainbow while flower petals are swirling around me. It’s as close to transporting myself into a Disney movie where all the animals help me get as clean as I can get. Maybe it’s because the song is largely about a squirrel, which to me is awesome. More people should write songs about woodland creatures. I believe the world would be a better place. That being said, I must urge you to watch this beautiful music video and become diehard fans of Ludovin. I promise it will be the easiest thing you’ve done all day.
