Format: CDD

Catalogue Number: BCD17695


Everyone knows the simple words and melody to Happy Birthday. But there are a great many other musical methods of conveying sincere natal day wishes. A bounty of them comprise Bear Family Records®‘ ‘Happy Birthday, Baby! – 32 (Un-) Happy Tunes For Your Birthday Party,‘ guaranteed to make any celebration more fun.

Neil Sedaka’s Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen is a must, as are Johnny Crawford’s Cindy’s Birthday and The Tuneweavers‘ Happy, Happy Birthday Baby—but no more so than the late Jerry Lee Lewis‘ gloriously salacious Birthday Cake (Keep Your Hands Off Of It) or Lesley Gore’s heartbroken It’s My Party. R&B greats Louis Jordan, Sil Austin, and Claudine Clark chime in with rollicking greetings, as do rockabilly warriors Steve Carl, Wanda Jackson, and Glenn Barber.

There’s a teen element here too, courtesy of Paul Anka, Kathy Young & The Innocents, and The Pixies Three; pop wailer Johnnie Ray checks in with When’s Your Birthday, Baby. The next time your birthday rolls around, just pop this collection into your CD machine and push ‘play’—it’s an instant party!
