Happy birthday to me

Today’s my birthday. And although I believe that the traditional “Happy Birthday” song is in the public domain but for copyfraud of enormous proportion, it’d still be nice to partake in a new musical tradition. The Free Music Archive held a contest this year to write a new birthday tune. They picked some pretty great winners!

If singing isn’t your jam, I recommend today only the Open Goldberg free culture recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variation 26. The whole collection is great, but 26 for my birthday.
