Spot the difference

24 years separate these two videos. I brought them here because I thought it might be a good exercise to try and spot the differences -and similarities.

Robert Palmer. Simply Irresistible (lyrics)

Please focus on the stereotypical gender roles and how these videos reflect an evolution in these 24 years. I hope you enjoy!!!
Ingrid Michaelson. Girls Chase Boys (lyrics)

A positive attitude may be the key to living longer

This week we have been reading about how important it is to have a positive attitude in order to live longer. This is not just a text to read and learn new words: Enjoying life could be the key to living longer, according to new research
...and a couple of days ago, Pharrell Williams was announced to be contending for the 86th annual Academy Awards. His song Happy has been nominated for the category of Best Original Song.
 This gives us a reason to enjoy these uplifting videos (with and without lyrics) and wish him good luck next March 2nd!
