Song Of The Day: Happy Happy Birthday Baby

In 1957, The Tune Weavers had a hit record with this song. The Tune Weavers were from Boston and consisted of singer Margo Sylvia with her husband, brother and cousin. Margo wrote the song with her brother.
Wanda Jackson made her cover version a year later. Naomi & The Boys (from Singapore) recorded their version in 1965. There is a YouTube video of Naomi singing this at a 1982 concert. They do not allow that video to be shared but you can see it by clicking here.
