When you're a big successful rock band, one of the absolute necessities is that you have your own Birthday themed song. It's just one of many ways in which big time rock bands are like Applebees*.
*Also, both invest a lot of time in Appeteasers.
we're all familiar with the Beatles 'You Say it's Your Birthday' (or
whatever the actual title of that song is) and The Smith's 'Unhappy
Birthday' (oh, Morrissey- I see what you did there.)
But were you aware of these other Birthday themed hits?
'It's Your Birthday Purple Washing Machine James Buchanan'
- They Might Be Giants
'For Your Birthday I Urinated on a Hobo'
- The Sex Pistols (R. Kelly does a nice cover of this)
'Don't Make me Cut You (It's Your Birthday')
- Li'l Kim
'Happy Bir.. Oh Why Even Bother.'
'Girl, girl girlgirl go'n sex you up t'naight (Birthday Club Re-mix)
- N Sync
- Anne Murray
'Happy Birthday, My Special Pookie Bear'
- Marilyn Manson
You've got options, people. That's all I'm saying.
