Velvet Hammer – Happy

Originally an unknown B side from 1977, Andre Williams’ group Velvet Hammer found a new lease of life in 2014 when namesake Pharrell Williams released a song of the same name (and some may say, similar style). The two songs were fused together in a video that “Northern Soul Girl” Levanna McLean produced, showing her dancing in her home town of Bristol. With the success of Pharrell’s release, both Levanna and Velvet Hammer were thrust into the public spotlight.

Whatever the circumstances, the fact remains that “Happy” is a belting song and deserves all the listens it can get 🙂
