Sharing the #SoundofHappy

They say a picture is worth a thousands words and I’m pretty sure the same can be said for a baby’s smile. The smiles of our babies are the most precious sight any parent can see, they brighten up our day and are etched in our memories forever.

A couple of months ago, I shared a selection of sounds that made Olly happy. He was a very happy and smiley baby regularly cooing and giggling to the sound of our voices as we sang nursery rhymes or tried to sing along to the latest pop songs on the radio. He loved the sound of his cousin reading to a story to him and would sit and look on in awe as he sat next to him with a book and Olly has always loved listening to music whether in the car or at home whilst playing with his toys.

Sound of Happy

Using stories gathered from parents and babies, and knowledge from expert child psychologists, C&G Babyclub has created the world’s first song made from sounds and music that makes babies smile and beam with happiness.

The song, designed to encourage happiness and laughter for babies aged 6 – 24 months was played to and tested on 56 infants, monitoring their reactions to see whether it worked.

The research found that the most popular sound that brings smiles to babies’ faces was ‘boo’, according to two thirds of parents. The top sounds found on the song include sneezing (51%), animal sounds (23%) and baby laughter (28%) and the cheerful two minute long tune amazed researchers when it brought smiles of delight, laughter and happiness to the little ones.

The Happy Song contains lyrics telling of parents’ love for their children wherever they are, which is a fact all parents can relate to. The 4/4 tempo was chosen as it is the most popular and easy to dance to. Grammy award-winning musician Imogen Heap, chose to compose the song in the key of E flat as it was the key her daughter, Scout sang a melody in on the first studio session.


When I first heard the song, it really made me smile. It made me reminisce back to the days when we used to dance around the living room with Olly in an attempt to settle him, it made me remember those days when he would giggle over us making silly sounds and pulling faces. Those really were the good days and I remember them well with a big smile on my face. It’s a real ‘feel good song’ that both little ones and parents can enjoy too.

The video below shows how C&G BabyClub made the song which includes interviews and behind the scenes snippets as well as an appearance from a major singer-songwriter.

What do you think? Did it make you smile? I’ve played the song to my three year old and he was fascinated by it. You can listen to the song here:

    Ooh I didn’t like it, it was a bit too busy for my liking. I can imagine my girls would have loved it when they were babies though.
