An old version of this article stated that the Curiosity Rover sings a birthday song to itself every year. But as stated by the Curiosity Rover Twitter account , "The reports of my singing are greatly exaggerated. I only hummed "Happy Birthday" to myself once, back in You just joined millions of people that love getting smarter every day.

What's Martian For "Birthday"? Written by Curiosity Staff August 4, Wish you from our hearts all the good things. Then you also need to learn when to hop and turn and bow.
Yes, dance moves are required. And at the right moment in the song. Hurray for you for celebrating your birthday!
Yes, we congratulate you! And tell me, what more could you want? Keeps them active and sharp. I am guessing Sylvi Listhaug will soon ask for foreigners to sing this song when wanting to cross the Norwegian border. After having passed the test of eating a whole pack of Brunost and skiing without falling of course.
And for those who want to look extra-integrated, here is the second verse of the song which I have never heard any Norwegian sing, by the way.
Curiosity , a huge accomplishment in interstellar exploration, is the largest and most capable rover ever delivered to the surface of a planet. It's slow, there's no good beat, and it has that awkward high note that's always painful to hear. Retrieved May 11, Dimension Point and Avex Trax, hired several dancers and extra actors to perform in the music video. Ja, deg vil vi gratulere! The song was later used as the theme song of Comrades: I have been here for 8 long years and never managed to learn the Norwegian Birthday song.
In my wildest dreams I sing like like a bird in front of struggling Norwegians:. Dagen er din, og dagen er bra, men du er den aller beste! Se deg om i ringen, hvem du vil ta! Dans en liten dans med den du helst vil ha! En av oss skal bli den neste! We wave our flags up high!
Look in the ring who you want to choose! Dance a little dance with who you want to! If you want to laugh real hard, I was interviewed by the Norwegian radio NRK P1 on the program Norgesglasset, and they asked me to sing the song, or my version of it.
Listen here to the podcast. Want to read more humour texts on how to understand the Norwegians?
Check out my book here! Thanks to this post, I just made my Norwegian husband sing the lyrics to me slowly, repeatedly until I got it. I had never bothered to look up the lyrics before, like the responsible immigrant that I am.
They really should make us learn this song in norskkurs. What the hell did I take all those classes for?
Anyway, thanks so much for making me feel like less of an inept human for not knowing the Norwegian birthday song already. I shall sleep soundly tonight.
I am so glad to have found this comment. I was looking around to see if there could be some interest if I wanted to create a youtube video on this song, and now I know. I will make that and upload it on my channel!

HI Lene, great to see that you are inspired by my blogpost! It has been shared over times on Facebook, and was published in VG here: Please do refer to my work with the name of my blog and of the article when you make your video, and we might even be able to make one together one day.
Best wishes, Lorelou aka A Frog in the Fjord. Then again, maybe you should try with Polish Birthday songs, they could go on with hours. I learned the song by, well, listening to others sing, not like I was taught this song or the moves.
The basic tune is traditional Norwegian. The basic tune quint? Thanks, I enjoyed this post a lot!. Darn…you made me Google: I am one of the few who actually knows both of the verses. In school we always sang both, and on the second verse the birthdaygirl- or boy got to choose a friend to dance with.
To add insult to injury — the last stanzas of the two verses transcribed in the post are not part of the original lyrics.
People just feel that the original verses leave something that should be added. Oh, I laughed so hard right now. We all have to know the second verse for those four parties a year: Margrethe Munthe was a great reformist in the Norwegian schools and her educational songs was ment to teach children good maners without the use of a cane.
