Me and you have two entirely different definitions of happy tune!!
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I heard from R Shlesinger in Monsey. Why do people say ארבעים שנה אקוט בדור on Friday night with a happy tune and זמרו לאלקים זמרו before tekias shofar in a sobbing tune? Obviously the words don't matter, it's the niggun that determines the meaning.
There are some places where the Chazzan doesn't say 40 Shana out loud. He just starts Shiru.
The ruv in the Spinker shtiebel I grew up in would start from אם יבאון.
If you don't care why would you comment?

My 8-year-old niece had 2 dresses and wasn't sure which one to wear for a relative's wedding. My sister told her to sleep on it, so she put them both under her pillow that night.
