FILTER release Happy Together Music Video.

The band Filter just released their official video for Happy Together which is their second video to come out with this song.

The first video was only the song version and got more than 4 million views on YouTube.

Their first rendition of Happy Together was recorded in 2009 for another movie ‘The Stepfather’. That movie was a remake of a 1987 thriller but flopped at the box-office leaving the Filter song relatively obscure to this day.

The song was originally recorded by The Turtles in 1967. The Turtles, Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, were later known as Flo and Eddie and at one time did time with Frank Zappa and the Mothers.

Their ‘Happy Together’ was the song that bumped The BeatlesPenny Lane’ from number one in America.

Then along came director Baz Lurhmann with his remake of ‘The Great Gatsby’ and the Filter song has a second lease of life.

Lurhmann’s new edition of ‘The Great Gatsby’, filmed in Sydney, stars Leonardo Di Caprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke.


The story centers around the deep, anguished guilt of the protagonist.

The scene I was in was very intense and the actors did a great job. I also enjoyed working with Al Burke and Jason Mercury.

The video was created entirely by Glass Media Lab with Director August Bradley and Producers Andrew Rayden & Dieterich Gray.
