May the bluebird of happiness ... nest

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 by The Press in Focus

The song, "Happy Days are Here Again," was written in 1929 with music by Milton Ager and lyrics by Jack Yellen.

It's best remembered as Franklin Delano Roosevelt's campaign song during his first successful 1932 presidential campaign.

Some historians have said the song became very popular with the repeal of Prohibition on April 7, 1933. The song is No. 47 on the Recording Industry Association of America's "Songs of the Century" list. As of 2006, there were 76 commercially-released versions of the song.
