Stock Music track: The Happening

A funky, fun alt-rock track combining the sound of the late 80's Madchester scene with early 80's new wave. A groovy beat and a melodic bassline provide the backbone for some busy, funky Stone Roses inspired guitar work. The second half of the song introduces a B52's inspired organ, bongos and congas. A great track for happy, upbeat moments, with an "indie" feel. Party music.
