The Happy Birthday Song

Birthday Cake

Look! A racing car cake!
Oh, to be six again!

This is for our benevolent group leader and bastion fortress of music love, Mat Mannion, whose glorious birthday it is today (do you think I’m over-doing it a bit?). Because I’m halfway across the world, I humbly present these musical gifts of three over the internet:

Andrew Bird – The Happy Birthday Song MP3 Expired [buy]
David Bowie – Never Get Old MP3 Expired [buy]
The National – Lit Up (Parisian Party Version MP3 Expired [buy]
\\

I tried to represent the slightly sad (Mr. Bird), the couldn’t care less (Mr. Bowie), and the let’s just use this as an excuse to party (Mr. National) attitudes birthdays always conjure up. Anybody else with a ‘la la la I’m not getting old la la la’ song they’d like to play? I’ll take requests you know…

  1. Arcade Fire's 'Np Cars Go' in which a group of late 20 somethings repeatedly refer to themselves as "us kids". Plus Mat knows it's a tune!
