did that tune come from? – Information
about "Happy Birthday" vs "Good Morning to All"
The song, "Good
Morning to All" appeared in the book, Song Stories for
pub. 1893. There is a lot of discussion on the web about the Public
of a 90% similar tune many know as "Happy Birthday." One
piece of that discussion,
seems well stated to me
(definitely not a lawyer) by J Byron. The difference between the
two tunes is
that pair of eighth notes (instead of one quarter note) every time
the word "happy" occurs.
There are folks who maintain that that difference is enough to merit
a 1935 copyright for
"Happy Birthday." Many disagree, but to be safe, I simply
used the "Good Morning to All"
song instead. Plucky singers or players can figure it out.
