I've searched the internet and all the usual sites but I can't find what I want. I'm looking for an upbeat version of Happy Birthday, you know, something with a bit of a swing to it. I'm playing a birthday party on the 4th of Jan and I've been asked to play it but not the usual morbidly slow version! Can anyone help?

I've got a fair few backing tracks so does anyone fancy playing swapsies?

Trimmy I had thought about that one and I've got the backing for it but I think she wants slightly more traditional than that. Hopefully Colin the bear may be able to knock me something up!

Thanks Nick, but I think that almost comes in the morbidly slow category lol
Appreciate your help though, thank you.;)

Yes I did, my thoughts were that it was rather ...... um...... American (No offence to Americans or America) I didn't really like it to be honest, just not my cup of tea
