Happy House (4:13)

Cover of Kaleidoscope

From Kaleidoscope and 38 other releases

“Happy House” is a song recorded by English rock band Siouxsie & the Banshees. The song was written by Banshees members Siouxsie Sioux and Steven Severin and it was released as the first single from the band’s third album Kaleidoscope.

“Happy House” and the Kaleidoscope album marked a change in musical direction for Siouxsie & the Banshees. They used a reggae vibe on drums and both atmospheric and edgy guitars. This song also incorporated a use of more electronic music elements.

The single became Siouxsie & the Banshees’ second top twenty hit, peaking at number seventeen in the UK singles chart.

Later, the song’s introduction was sampled by the band Mindless Self Indulgence for the song “Bitches”. The Italian dance act Cappella was sued in 1993 for using the distinctive riff from “Happy House” in their song “U Got 2 Know” in the early 90’s, without paying publishings and they lost. European band Ginger Ale also covered the song in 2003.

This is the happy house, we're happy here in the happy house
Oh, it's such fun, fun, fun
We've come to play in the happy house
And waste a day in the happy house, it never rains, never rains
