Music Mondays: Happy, Happy Birthday to you!
I have a lot of family and friends who have May birthdays. This Disney song, "Happy, Happy Birthday to You" is a fun alternative to the traditional birthday song. It was composed by Michael Silversher and Patricia (Patty) Silversher for Donald Duck's 50th Birthday (1984). The song was written to also avoid copyright restrictions that were associated with the more familiar "Happy Birthday To You" song.
1984 was a big year for Donald Duck. There was a television special as well as a tour. The song is fun, lively to help celebrate this milestone. It was used as the Disneyland parade music. Be warned that it is a kind of catchy.
So if you are looking for an alternate birthday song to sing, try this Disney song.
To all my friends and family celebrating a birthday this month: I hope all your birthday wishes come true!
