Does anyone else not understand why this has not officially replaced "Happy Birthday "yet?  Seriously.  a-hard-days-night-paul-5

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Happy birthday takes 10 seconds to sing and is so simple a song for everyone to get and name-check. Birthday you have to get the drums out and see if Yoko is available for backing vocals. Seriously, i dont think its that widely adored and might seem a bit cringing, especially if the person doesnt like the Beatles. Also there is nothing attached to Happy Birthday , its a completely blank canvas.

Well I know that I greatly prefer it.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11  I will continue to force it on those close to me.

Happy Birthday has the "insert name here" bit, which means it can be easily personalised. Birthday gets played on my birthday, it just doesn't get sung to me, though often sung along with by everybody in the room.

I'm not a fan. Probably has to do with a radio station I used to listen to that played a snipped of it every day they announced celebrity birthdays. That and I just don't think it's one of Paul's better songs.

Thank you! And you too, AppleScruffJunior!

I held a party for my friends last night (as Saturday is way more convenient than Sunday for a party). It turned out quite wonderfully, as everyone counted down the ten seconds before midnight while Birthday was playing in the background. Certainly a nice way to become 18 years old!
As for today, I expect a very relaxed day with closest of family and friends, and of course, lots of Beatles music!

Personally, I would prefer it if my relatives didn't butcher a Beatles song on my birthday. That's just me, though...

Thank you, mja!
I wish I could invite you all for some cake and legally bought alcohol (to symbolize!) while listening to Birthday on constant repeat.

Happy birthday Scrambled Eggs.

Since you are now 18 and that generally represents coming of age should we now call you 'Yesterday '?

Hope you are having a wonderful birthday. After the Beatles music tonight, perhaps you can dust off some records by that Alexander the Great guy you mentioned who is from your country. a-hard-days-night-george-10

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Happy belated birthday. That is, depending on the time zone. Maybe if I catch a flight and turn left at Greenland I can pretend I posted this on time.

Oh yes I remember reading that in that Where Are You From post. That's very cool. No matter what they say I believe I was born in Sparta! Haha.

So I was too late. Well, I'd still like her to dance.. take a cha cha cha chance.
