Watch The Maccabees Perform ‘Something Like Happiness’ on Jools Holland – Superbly (Video)

The Maccabees Something Like Happiness Jools Holland

British indie rock band The Maccabees were back on Later…with Jools Holland last night (September 22nd, 2015), where they gave a fabulous performance of ‘Something Like Happiness‘ from their new album Marks To Prove It.

Marks To Prove It immediately went to number 1 on the UK album chart when it was released in July, and was also given rave reviews by a slew of critics.

And, if you haven’t yet listened to the album, you really should. It’s superb.

The band kicked off the pre-release of the album with the lead single ‘Marks To Prove It‘ in May (which they also performed on Jools Holland last night), followed soon after by the second single — ‘Something Like Happiness‘ (which I actually like even better than the first one).

As for ‘Something Like Happiness‘, it’s a song about making sure you take opportunities as they appear. Even if it’s just by telling someone how much you love them.

Must be like nothing else
Must be like nothing else
Taste like nothing else
Help like nothing else
Ease you and comfort and seem
Something like happiness

You just know when you know you just know
You got somewhere to go when you go

If you love them
Go and tell them
Tell them over and over and over again
Heaven forbid opportunities missed
