Song of the Day

Thought I would start the week off with this song. I’ve been listening to is over and over and never get tired of it.

This was one of the very first songs I looked for when I got my very first iPod. I have always loved this song. It came out the year I was born, so a lot of things come out of the year!

Oh How Happy” (1966) by Shades of Blue

The Shades of Blue were an American blue-eyed soul vocal group from Livonia, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.

The band started in high school as The Domingos. Original group members included Nick Marinelli, Ernie Dernai, Linda Allen, and Bob Kerr. By 1965 The Domingos signed a recording contract for the Detroit-based Golden World label. John Rhys, a sound engineer, suggested a name change and The Shades of Blue was the result.[2]

Their biggest hit was the 1966 song “Oh How Happy“, written by Edwin Starr, which reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 16 on the US Billboard R&B chart,

In case you need to words to sing this song.

 

Oh, how happy
You have made me
Oh, how happy
You have made me

I have kissed your lips a thousand times
And more times than I can count
I have called you mine
You have stood by me in my darkest hour

Oh, how happy
You have made me
Oh, how happy
You have made me

Oh, how happy
You have made me
Oh, how happy
You have made me

In our years together
We have had stormy weather
But our love has been so strong
That somehow we’ve carried on

Oh, how happy
You have made me
Oh, how happy
You have made me

And all that was wrong
You have made it right
And I love, I love, I love you

Oh, how happy
You have made me
Oh, how happy
You have made me

(Oh, how happy)
Oh, how happy
(Oh, how happy)
Oh, how happy
(Oh, how happy)
You

(You have made me)
You have made me
(You have made me)
You have made me
(You have made me)
You have made me
