Get happy

author of text

Get happy was written by the American songwriter Harold Arlen (1905-1986) in 1930, in collaboration with the lyricist Ted Koehler. It is in the tradition of Christian evangelical meeting songs. Our arrangement, by Paul Hart, has been in the library for many years and was first recorded in a version with George Shearing playing piano, on the album Get happy from 1991. Robert Rice took this arrangement by Paul Hart with instruments and adapted and extended it to work a cappella, and it has since sat proudly in our bank of songs by the great Harold Arlen.
