Shiny, Happy People

Shiny, Happy People

Love the song but feel the people it talks about are not particularly authentic. I suspect that is why the song was written.

Don’t get me wrong I have met some lovely, genuine people but I am not a big fan of the whole “Fake it, till you make it. ” concept.

To quote my Israeli boss,

“If you no like why you no say you no like.”

I suspect this is a much healthier attitude.

Fake happy people remind me of that line from Shakespeare:

“A goodly villain with a smiling cheek.”
