Catchy tune AND a good laugh?!

I just caught a repeat of Saturday Night Live (from Jan 2013), with guest host Adam Levine from Maroon 5. Andy Samberg took the opportunity to do a Digital Short with his Lonely Island group, Adam, and musical guest Kendrick Lamar.

What a great song! Catchy (too catchy – am still singing Levine’s chorus), and a funny poke at our fears as it looks at YOLO (You Only Live Once) from the other side. “There’s no such thing as too much Purel!” … “Be carefolo…”

Love it!

The joy and energy of this video never fails to move me

I first saw this video on Oprah — the start of her 24th season, I believe it says.  I have long been an Oprah fan and her shows have informed me, let me feel understood, given me ideas as to how to live a better life, and helped me to appreciate the life I have.  They’ve made me smile and laugh and cry.  This clip, however, gives me such joy and… I don’t know… lightness?  Oprah called the feeling “joy rising”, and I think that’s a pretty good description.

So here is a video to cheer myself up, and anyone else who ever looks here.  It’s the Black Eyed Peas singing the Oprah version of I Gotta Feeling, with a surprise flashmob.

PS. As an editor, the spelling of their song title really irritates me… but what can ya do.
