"You Are My Sunshine" is a popular upbeat song. The song was first recorded by one of its composers, Jimmie Davis, who was also governor of Louisiana from 1944-1948 and 1960-1964. Bing Crosby's version of the song climbed to #20 on the pop charts, and Ray Charles's rendition reached #1 on the R&B charts. It was Davis' popularity as governor, as well as the public's appreciation of the song, that led "You Are My Sunshine" to become an official state song of Louisiana in 1977.

The Muppets have performed the song several times.
