"Happy as Annie" was originally released in 2005 as the limited edition second single by Larrikin Love on London indie label Transgressive Records (TRANS 010). Re-recorded and re-mixed by Ian Gore for the band's 2006 debut album The Freedom Spark, a new version of the song was released on 11 September 2006 through Warner.

A live favourite, the song is notable for contrasting some of the band's most catchy and light-hearted bluegrass music with disturbing lyrics, apparently concerning a country stroll that ends in the discovery of a child rape victim.
