Happy Days are Here Again November 5, 2008

winA seismic shift was felt across the land last night. The joy, the pride and unbridled emotions were felt everywhere. Phone calls were exchanged all over this country and around the world. How proud are we of how far we have come? I thought John McCain’s concession speech hit the proper tone but I could not help but noticing the ‘deer in the headlight’ look across Sarah Palin’s face and the maniacal look on Todd Palin’s face was a bit frightening. Another note, but of sadness is that my boy, Al Franken, went down in defeat to Norm Coleman. Bummer. Maybe Al would be a funny Press Secretary.  I have to leave the house early this morning but there is much to talk about later. In the meantime, enjoy these three songs.

Happy Days Are Here Again” is a song copyrighted in 1929 by Milton Ager (music) and Jack Yellen (lyrics). The song was recorded by Leo Reisman and His Orchestra, with Lou Levin, vocal (November 1929), and was used in the 1930 film Chasing Rainbows. Today, the song is probably best remembered as the campaign song for Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s (FDR) successful 1932 Presidential campaign. Since FDR’s use of the song, it has come to be recognized as the unofficial theme of the Democratic Party.
