I’m not sure there are more than five artists with whom you can make a better party playlist with than Pharrell Williams. I’m talking 30-40 songs that will guarantee a good time for an energetic party. Artists that come to mind are Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson, Kanye, Jay-Z and maybe a few others could be in the running, but even then the catalog of Pharrell may take the cake.
Pharrell has obviously had a huge year, with three smash hits in “Get Lucky”, “Happy”, and “Blurred Lines”. What’s amazing is that only one of those tracks was able to crack our top ten list. Pharrell is unique in many different ways, but what may make him the most unique is his uncanny ability to add that something extra that makes a song a hit. Whether it is on the production side or in front of a microphone, Pharrell makes everything he touches a little bit better. Enjoy the list, and have fun appreciating Pharrell with us.
10. “She Wants to Move” – N.E.R.D.
I’m not even going to address this song directly (it is great), but instead use this opportunity to let everyone know how annoying it is to correct someone when they call N.E.R.D. “nerd”. It is also annoying to be the perpetrator of this mistake, but let’s all just leave it alone.
