I’m a bit late to this, but there are still a couple of days left to enter the New Happy Birthday Song Contest. What’s wrong with the old song that everybody knows? Even though it has origins tracing back to the 1800s, it is under copyright in the US until 2030! So if you sing it at your kid’s party and put it on YouTube you’re breaking the law. For real.
The winning entry will be recorded professionally and distributed in fancy packaging to those in the film, tv and restaurant industry in an attempt to upend the birthday status quo.
