Song: Happy Together
Cover Artist: Flobots
Album (Year): Rise (single) (2008)
Original Artist: The Turtles
Originally released by The Turtles in 1967 after several other artists had passed on it. ‘Happy Together’ shot to the top of the charts and became The Turtles only #1 hit. It’s been used in numerous movies and TV shows and is instantly recognizable from the very start.
The cover version presented here was released only on the UK Maxi-Single for the Flobots song ‘Rise’. This version starts out fairly true to the original before smoothly transitioning into the Flobots signature hip-hop alternative style.
