Happy Birthday to Me!

By Superconductor @ppelkonen
Happy Birthday to Me!A former boss of mine (and now a good friend) sent me this as a birthday greeting. I'm 38 today, and thought I'd share this absolutely excellent video with you of Zubin Mehta conducting a series of variations: (Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner etc.) on "Happy Birthday To You."
The song "Happy Birthday to You" is copyrighted material, originally written by the sisters Mildred J. Hill and Patty Smith Hill. The ditty will remain under copyright until at least 2030 or until Congress grants Warner Brothers another extension.

But it's more fun to watch this video.
