Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Posted by Azumi on   0 comments

Get Happy

Lyrics:Ted Koehler
Music:Harold Arlen

The song was publishe 1929.

The piece contained a repeated rhythmic figure that suggested the words
“Get Happy” to Koehler, who knew that the phrase came from
the African-American gospel music tradition and referred to the experience
of receiving the Holy Spirit during a church service.
The remainder of the lyrics to the tune unfolded as a sort of pseudo-spiritual.

Singer Ruth Etting was an acquaintance of Koehler,
and when Etting heard the song she found a spot for it in her next show,
the 9:15 Revue. Although the revue floundered, the tune gathered momentum,
and Remick released the sheet music with Etting on the cover.
(Oddly, she never recorded the tune).

Actress/vocalist Judy Garland revived “Get Happy” when she performed
it as a striking song and dance number in the 1950 film Summer Stock,
her last film for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.


Summer Stock


Pack up your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, come on get happy
Get ready for the judgement day

The sun is shining, come on get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, come on get happy
We're going to the Promised Land

We're heading 'cross the river
Gonna wash our sins in the tide
It's all so peaceful
On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgement day

The sun is shining, come on get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, come on get happy
We're going to the Promised Land

We're heading 'cross the river
Wash our sins away in the tide
It's all so peaceful
On the other side

We're heading 'cross the river
Wash our sins away in the tide
It's all so peaceful
On the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase your cares away!!
Sing Hallelujah, come on get happy
Get ready for the judgement day
