    The Birthday Experience

    Hi, I just turned 16 today (have been told I'm now "legal" repeatedly) and with everyone singing happy birthday I've actually taken a look at what I know about the song.

    "Happy birthday to you" (English)

    "Joyesannie Verse" (French)

    "Otanjobi Omedetou" (Japanese)

    it can be sung in so many different languages and still have exactly the same rythm. People in countries all over the world can instantly recognise the song.

    Not only that but people have made several "funny" variations of it.

    "you look like a big fat monkey, and you smell like one too"

    My point is that I'm asking if anyone knows Happy Birthday in any other languages? does anyone know of any genuinely funny variations? anyone have any interesting birthday pranks they'd like to share?

    First things first, Happy Birthday Lordlink!

    I wonder who wrote the melody to Happy Birthday as well, i mean their are tons of simple tunes we know which were written by famous composers. For example "twinkle twinkle little star" was written by Mozart, and the Nokia ringtune was taken from a piece by Francisco Tarrega.

    Or maybe it's just one of the anonymous pieces like Greensleeves or Romance

    Greensleves was written by English King Henry VIII. :ninja: Happy Birthday was written by some composer (duh), but I think it was copyrighted by Disney, or some company. I can't remember, my trivia knowledge has faded. *sigh*

    Happy birthday mate! You do us Aussies proud. ^_^ Sorry I don't have any stories. I will next year though! *cackles about 18 and legal drinking age*

    Actually Greensleeves is anonymous, but it's often attributed to Henry VIII. Although this has pretty much been discredited due to musical differences of the time

    To help you out of this depressing question. In Dutch we say "van harte gefeliciteerd".

    Well. Owned. :ninja:

    I was a fool to doubt the musical ability of the man with the guitar avatar, the meastro, Stonehambey.

    Just to throw something in - Grab a friend, ask him/her to sing the ABC's while you sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Make sure you start at the same time.

    Happy birthday LL, hopefully someone you know will be smart enough to help you have a fraction of the good 'ole fun we usually wish to most members. (You know, the ones who are usually old enough to legally drink...)
