Don't Worry, Be Happy" is a popular worldwide hit song by American musician Bobby McFerrin. Released in September 1988, it became the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a position it held for two weeks. The Indian mystic and sage Meher Baba (1894–1969) often used the expression "Don't worry, be happy" when cabling his followers in the West.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy made Bobby McFerrin a household name, while his Simple Pleasures album was a high-water mark for vocal jazz. Though McFerrin’s name eventually became synonymous with unaccompanied a cappella singing, his self-titled debut album, released by Blue Note, in 1982, when McFerrin was 32, was a more orthodox jazz record with instrumental backing. But that all changed with his next album, 1984’s The Voice, which was not only his first LP featuring strictly a cappella vocals, but was also unprecedented in the jazz world. Commercial success proved elusive for McFerrin until 1987, however, when the live album Spontaneous Inventions, featuring, ‘Thinkin’ About Your Body’, dented the lower reaches of the US album charts and took the singer’s dazzling vocal dexterity to a much wider audience.
