Woodkid Made a Sad Remix of Pharrell’s “Happy”

Whether or not there’s an actual need for a sad remix of Pharrell’s “Happy” is debatable, but Woodkid, master of dramatic and moving music, went right ahead and created one. The remix is almost a bit confusing, with its melancholic piano arrangement alongside Pharrell’s exuberant lyrics, but it works. It might even make you feel like you’re trying to suppress laughter at a funeral.

Check out the remix below.
