Name that tune

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 15, 2007 01:40 PM



Westborough High School officials are looking for anyone who may remember the melody to the old school song, "Happy Years" (Not to be confused with the song of the same name by Dave Somerville and the Diamonds or "Happy New Years Baby," by Johny Otis).

The words to the song were recently rediscovered in a yearbook from 1950, but they do not indicate how the melody was sung. The song was composed in 1936 by Gordon Aldrich, and the lyrics were written by Susan Beardslee and Shirley Lawrence.

Anyone with information should contact David Jost in the Fine Arts Office at Westborough High School by calling 508-836-7716 or via e-mail.
