Listen to this: Happy Birthday to me

So today is my birthday, so this is how I celebrate. I found the above a while ago, and it’s fitting it be shared today. Only Stravinsky could do something like this and have it not suck. I think it’s great. Slatkin’s intro is pretty funny too, so that just makes it even better. The below video is a set of charming variations on happy birthday in the style of various composers. I really liked the Beethoven version, I literally laughed out loud. I prefer the original Stravinsky happy birthday to this version, but the inclusion of the Rite of Spring was a nice touch. Lucky woman who got this as a present.
