Happy Together By The Turtles

The Turtles made music that made you smile.

They started out in a folk/rock direction. Their cover of Bob Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me Babe” reached the top ten. They then turned down “Eve Of Destruction,” which Barry McGwire took to the top of the charts.

They took a different direction with their hit “You Baby.” The harmonies and the feel good nature of their music were in place.

Their sixth single release was “Happy Together.” It entered the Hot 100 on February 11, 1967, Six weeks later, on March 25th, it reached number one, where it would remain for three weeks.

The Turtles would break-up in 1970, leaving behind a legacy of just plain old fun-filled music and a single number 1 song.
