As there are quite a few Birthday’s happening around me at the moment, it reminded me of a most awesome new birthday song that I had recently heard.

The traditional Happy Birthday song, has been around for the longest time. It’s a bit old, and a bit worn out. Whilst it’s familiar, and it’s used all the time, at Birthdays, I’m in agreement with Amae Love, that it’s time we had a new Birthday song. A birthday song that celebrates life. That is really an expression of happiness, joy, and genuine celebration of the person celebrating their birthday.

With that in mind, I’d like to share with you all a video of Amae Love singing her proposed replacement for the Birthday Song:


I also found this Bandcamp recording of her singing her version of the Birthday song which I thought was cool:


And this is a version of the Birthday song where they end up having some background music, and have a whole group of people joining in, and celebrating the new birthday song together


The second video was shared via Kickstarter, to fundraise the new Birthday song campaign (where they successfully raised enough funds to create the New Birthday Song video they wanted to produce).

Personally, I’m not a big fan of the final video they produced, but if you want to see it, you can watch the final video production of the new birthday song here:

(personally I prefer the second video on the page!)


As I was watching these videos, on YouTube, I stumbled across a performance by Nicole Pesce of the traditional Happy Birthday theme music, but played in the style of some of the great composers. If you enjoy listening to classical music, or fancy a laugh, I invite you to have a listen to the ‘Happy Birthday’ music, played in the style of Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Bach, and Mozart, as well as how Mozart might have played it when ‘really’ intoxicated! (very impressive indeed!) 😉


Feel free to spread the word, use and share the new alternative birthday theme song by Amae Love, or leave in the comments below details of any other alternative birthday songs/lyrics that you think serve a better celebration song, for when it’s somebody’s birthday.

Happy Birthday to you

Would you consider learning and singing this new song? Or do you prefer the existing ‘Birthday’ song.. Do let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
