Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli



Happiness is just a hairflip away.

A NEW CLIP EVERY WEEK HERE

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Justin Timberlake - "Suit & tie"

"Suit & tie" is a R&B song recorded by American singer Justin Timberlake for his upcoming third studio album "The 20/20 experience" due out on March 15th, 2013. It was written by Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Shawn Carter, Jerome 'J-Roc' Harmon and James Fauntleroy. The song serves as Justin Timberlake's highly-anticipated musical comeback following a six-year hiatus, during which time he pursued an acting career and developed his skills as a record producer and songwriter for other artists.
Following months of private beta testing, Myspace was relaunched on January 15. The front page of the site featured an image of Justin Timberlake wearing a suit and tie. In addition, a chance to stream or download "Suit & tie" for joining or signing in to Myspace was given. Wired magazine wrote that by doing this, the site, which was completely revamped to focus on "assisting artists in sharing their music with passionate fans", is sending a "clear message" about what the network is good for : "posting music for free, and trying to upsell it to downloads".
The inspiration for this song really came out of the blue. "I didn't expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the best time I've had in my career... Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process", said Justin Timberlake. It's a mid-tempo R&B song. It begins with a "slow-drawl" intro consisting of slowed down synths and "slightly out of time" drum claps. A distorted JT growls "awoo", before he and Timbaland sing : "I be on my suit and tie shit". After a brief pause the song then settles into a "rolling, laidback" groove that contains finger clicks and old-school horn blasts, which adds a layer of sophistication to the track. Timbaland's "shiny collection" of percussion congeals on the track. "Suit & tie" is a sleek dance number with several start-stop components arranged in a way similar to his début single "Like I love you" (2002). The song is in the "classic" style of Curtis Mayfield, yet isn't in any way conventionally retro. It "floats along" like a song from The Whispers, but Timbaland's production manages to pay homage without sounding dated. The song then goes into a hypnotic, engaging outro before a great, cold ending. Lyrically, the song is an ode to the joys of "being handsome and well-dressed". The video, directed by David Fincher, was shot on January 25, 2013 and premièred on V-day.
