Remember that classic “Don’t Worry Be Happy” that became a smash hit in the late 80s? For many, Bobby McFerrin's musical view became the anthem of newly found perspective while for others it served as another example of the shallowness of man. I myself, at the time, remember thinking it was a bit of a stretch. How humbled I have been and you will see why when you watch the video below. Bobby McFerrin is clearly someone who lives music with every inch of his being. He understands its ability to embrace us, lift us, console us, energize us and inspire us. And well…leave us…dare I say it…happy. Music is a powerful stress busting tool and you don't need to be musically inclined to enjoy its benefits. A single five-minute cut from your favourite artist or band may leave you utterly revitalized. So what say you? I say it’s time to crank the tunes.
