Music Monday: The Unbirthday Song
"Unbirthday" was a term used in Lewis Carroll's novel Through the Looking Glass. It's a very fun and interesting term that makes reference to the fact that everyday of the year besides your actual birthday is your "unbirthday."
Alice in Wonderland was Disney's 13th animated film released in 1951. When Alice first encounters the Mad Hatter and March Hare, they are in the process of having a party and singing "The Unbirthday Song." Words and music were written by Mack David, Al Hoffman and Jerry Livingston. The trio had collaborated before on Cinderella with songs like "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" and "A Dream Is Wish".
This song can also be heard at Disneyland when you get on the Mad Tea Party attraction. You can't go past the spinning tea cups without a smile on your face when you see everyone having so much fun on their "unbirthday."
