For Smithsonian Magazine, Kellie B. Gormly on the forgotten sisters behind "Happy Birthday to You":

"The surprisingly tangled history of 'Happy Birthday to You'—described by Guinness World Records as the most frequently sung English-language song—begins in 1893, when the Hill sisters co-wrote and published a tune called 'Good Morning to All.'"

Thanks for listening!
