Birthday wishes courtesy of early Americana. Music and words composed in 1848 by Maine Shaker Elder Joseph Brackett (1797-1882). The song first reached audiences outside the Shaker communities through Aaron Copland's use of it in Martha Graham's 1944 ballet "Appalachian Spring."

You Made Me Love You (Birthday)

Music by James V. Monaco, lyrics by Joseph McCarthy, 1913.

A Jolson perennial, memorably sung on film by a very young Judy Garland to a photo of Clark Gable.
