Makes Me Happy was originally used as score music for the Nickelodeon show Zoey 101 and some of it was sung by Backhouse Mike in the Zoey 101 episode "Quinn's Alpaca". The song was used in Drake & Josh in the episode "Really Big Shrimp". The version used in Drake & Josh episode "Really Big Shrimp" is a different version than the version in Drake Bell's album It's Only Time.
This song was heard on Radio Disney and the XM satellite station, "XM Hitlist", as well as other radio stations. The song was finally released as a digital single to iTunes on October 16, 2007, in the form of a Radio Disney Edit that contains different lyrics than the album version and also different from the version used in Drake & Josh: Really Big Shrimp.
In 2014, a rearranged more upbeat, rockabilly-inspired version of the song appears on Bell's third studio album, Ready Steady Go!
