Product Information

Walking Happy from Walking Happy - Digital Sheet Music
From Sheet Music Magazine: Sammy was writing music for the Jackie Gleason film PAPA'S DELICATE CONDITION (from whence comes Cahn's favorite Cahn song, "Call Me Irresponsible"). As he later explained to Max Wilk, "Jimmy and I sat for hours trying to figure out how to write a song that would denote the walk of a fellow who's just ever so slightly drunk. We finally came up with the exact phrase. What do you say when a drunk is walking like this? That's walking happy, right?" "Walking Happy" became the title of a 1966 Cahn/Van Heusen musical version of HOBSON'S CHOICE that ran for 161 performances on Broadway. Singers ranging from Shirley Bassey to Rosemary Clooney to Ray Charles have recorded this tune since.
