V. Let’s Talk
The Origin of the Song “Happy Birthday to You”
The story of the song “Happy Birthday to You” Began as a sweet one, but later became bitter. Two sisters, Mildred Hill, a teacher at a kindergarten, and Dr. Patty Hill, the principal of the same school, wrote a song together for the children, entitled “Good Morning to All”. When Mildred combined her musical talents with her sister’s knowledge in the area of kindergarten education, ‘Good Morning to All” was sure to be a success. The sister published the song in a collection entitled “Song Stories of the Kindergarten” in 18
  93. Thirty-one years later, after Dr. Patty Hill became the head of the Department of Kindergarten Education at Columbia University’s Teachers College, a gentleman by the name Robert Coleman published the song, without the sisters’ permission. He added a second part, which is the familiar “Happy Birthday to You”. Mr. Coleman’s addition of the second part made the song popular and, finally, the sisters” original first part disappeared. “Happy Birthday to You” had altogether replaced the sisters’ original song “Good Morning to All”. In 1916 Patty took legal action against Mr. Coleman. In court, she succeeded in proving that hey were the real owners of the song.

The former had great musical talents, while the latter had knowledge of kindergarten education. Bu combining their abilities, the two produced a song called “Good Morning to All”. It was a success, and later published in a collection of songs for kindergartens. Thirty-one years later a man named Coleman published the song without the sisters’ permission. To make things worse, he added a second part, which is the present “Happy Birthday to You”. This new song soon became popular and eventually it replaced the sisters’ first part altogether. Then, in 1916, Patty took legal action against Coleman. In court she managed to prove that she and her sister really owned the song.

Task 2: When was music first sent down a telephone line?
So you think downloading music from the Internet through a phone line is a really cool modern thing? Not so. In 1896, Thaddeus Cahill Filed a patent on the instrument for transmitting music electronically, and until 1914 he sent music signals down telephone lines with this instrument. And he wasn’t even the first. Elisha Gray transmitted music over a telephone line in 1876, which was the same year the telephone was invented. Gray invented the first electronic music instrument in 1874, calling it the “Musical Telegraph”. Alexander Graham Bell also designed an experimental “Electric Harp” for speech to be transmitted over a telephone line using technology similar to Gray’s. Bell was a speech teacher for the deaf. In 1879 he created an instrument to measure hearing loss. That is why the degrees of loudness came to be measured in bels or decibels. 5-4-2-1-3
Task 3: Thank You for the Music
I’m nothing special, in fact I’m a bit of a bore If I tell a joke, you’re probably heard it before But I have a talent, a wonderful thing ‘Cause everyone listens when I start to sing I’m so grateful and proud All I want is to sing it out loud So I say Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing Who can live without it, I ask in all honestly What would life be Without a song or a dance what are we So I say thank you for the music For giving it to me Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I began to sing long before I could talk And I’ve often wondered, how did it all start Who found out that nothing can capture a heart Like a melody can Well, whoever it was, I’m a fan So I say Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing …
Speaking
Musical Memories
Tony: Listen! Quick, turn up the radio! Isn’t that “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” Nancy: Yeah, it is, but what’s the big deal? Tony: When I was a little boy, my grandmother took me to see the movie The Lion King. That’s the Elton John song from the movie. Nancy: I still can’t understand why it’s so important to you. Tony: Because it was the first movie I ever saw with my grandma and because I really loved spending time with her. It is my favorite song of all times! Nancy: The first time Tom and I went on a date, we went to see Titanic. I always think of the song “My Heart Will Go On” as our song! Whenever I hear it, I think of that night. Tony: Oh, I can understand why you love that song! Isn’t it interesting all the memories we connect with songs?
