T he Happy Birthday song has finally been ruled as belonging to the public domain, but did you know of its tangled history? On June 27, , teacher Mildred Hill was born. You may not know her name but you will almost certainly have sung the song she helped write. Hill was the co-composer of Happy Birthday To You, originally called Good Morning To All, which is the song millions of people sing around a candlelit cake. It was first published in a songbook 90 years ago, on March 4.
Although by the recognisable melody had been sung in American primary schools for nearly three decades, the publication was to trigger almost a century of legal wranglings which would result in Happy Birthday To You being one of the most lucrative songs of all time. Even though nobody knows who actually wrote Happy Birthday's lyrics, until this week, Warner Music contentiously owns the copyright to the song in its entirety.
The media giant has therefore been earning millions from people celebrating their birthdays for a quarter of a century. To sing Happy Birthday in a restaurant, at a concert or public place, royalties had to be paid. The most recent exception to the rule, it would seem, is if you sing it on Mars - as Curiosity Rover did to the surface of the planet last August, a year after it landed. The familiar six-note tune and original similar, but importantly not birthday-related, lyrics were the work of two sisters, Mildred and Patty Hill, who composed Good Morning To All in to sing to their pupils every day.
The Hill's lyrics wished listeners a 'good morning' where 'happy birthday' would later appear, and in this format the song made its way around Kentucky kindergartens and primary schools in the late 19th century. The Hill sisters, possibly forseeing of the copyright battles to come, instructed the trainee teachers they shared the song with never to write it down.
However, in around the word 'birthday' started to sneak its way into versions of the tune and it was first published next to the melody on this day in It didn't take long for the song to appear in the then-new sound films and on radio airwaves, entirely without royalties; in Happy Birthday appeared in the Broadway musical The Band Wagon. After Western Union used it as a stunt in their first ever "singing telegram" two years later and another appearance on Broadway, the third Hill sister, Jessica, took a stand and secured the copyright of Happy Birthday in , thanks to its similarities to Good Morning To All.
The next year, the first copyrighted version of Happy Birthday was published by Clayton F. Summy Company. The Hills were to have rights over the song if it was sung for profit until , and this was extended under current law until The Hill Foundation, set up in the sisters' honour, has collected half of all royalties since , with some going to their nephew Archibald, after Patty's death in Many have argued that Happy Birthday belongs in the public domain.
Brauneis used more than documents from six historical archives from across America, to put the Hills' ownership of the melody into dispute and show that the writer of the lyrics has never been recorded. Even if the Hills really did own the song, they didn't properly renew the copyright in the Sixties.
