He is 71, but loves the songs that his children and grandchildren love. Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan enjoyed listening to Oscar-nominated Pharrell Williams’ songs, Get Lucky and Happy, even if he couldn’t fathom their lyrics clearly.
“Pharrell Williams and ‘Get Lucky’ on a loop... the kids make fun of me... me thinks he sings ‘mexican monkey’ when in fact, he sings ‘makes it get lucky’ but on the track, it’s grooving and sounds like yaaa (sic),” Amitabh posted on his blog on Monday.
He wondered “what is it that sticks the music to your brain for repeat and nausea. I’ve no idea, but whatever it is, it sure makes for continued good listening... at times, getting to shake the body and movin’ and tremblin (sic),” he added. After Get Lucky, he came across Happy, Williams’ Academy Award-nominated number from the album, Despicable Me 2.
The actor enjoyed this video, too. “It is hilarious, and most ingenious... how endearing and conceptually exact... want it to carry on... non-stop (sic),” he wrote.
