“Happy Birthday To You” is probably the most recognizable song in the entire English language, according to the 1998 Guinness World Records, followed by "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow". The song's base lyrics have been translated into at least 18 languages. The melody of "Happy Birthday to You" comes from the song "Good Morning to All", which has traditionally been attributed to American sisters Patty and Mildred J. Hill in 1893.

It is the one song that everyone gets to hear being sung at them once a year, on the day of their birth! To some, it creates the most euphoric feeling ever; to others, it gives a sense of uneasiness and awkwardness, making them ask for the song to never be sung in front of them again!

The song has a very cheerful melody, but adults claim that the melody is too cheerful, making them feel restless. Little kids find it especially disturbing! To each their own, we suppose…

Kids might giggle during the song; they might also cry is distress. Don’t believe us? Just watch what happens to little Jack when mommy sings on his birthday! She starts with the usual tune, but when the time comes for her to say his name, she instead says “aunty”, followed by a very long, awkward pause. What the heck?

When Jack realizes that she’s not singing to him, he bangs his sippy cup on the high chair and that wide smile turns into a sour frown. How dare she not put his name in the song? It is his birthday!
