We are back in the groove now … with Day 18 of the 30 Day Music Challenge. This questions is rather revealing I have to say, because by answering I will be revealing my age … Actually that doesn’t bother me at all … I love my age … I am a super cool, rocking 51 year old. And to my fellow 50 year old’s … it is an amazing decade … one of the best. I love being 51 … Its awesome. So now that we have that out of the way … let’s look at the questions …A song from the year you were born? For me that was 1967. It was a pretty phenomenal year for music, so I am going to have to try and figure out which one to go with. My first thought was Lulu – a gorgeous Scottish singer who appeared in the Sidney Poitier film To Sir With Love and sang the title track that was a big hit in 1967. Then there is one of the coolest, laid back tunes ever by The Rascals — Groovin’ (on a Sunday afternoon) – Love that song … it’s better than yoga for de-stressing. 1967 is when a Whiter Shade of Pale came out . Also when There’s a Kind of Hush and Penny Lane came out … How do you choose??
So I am going to be honest with you … I had decided earlier in the week to choose a Frankie Valli song. I have always loved Can’t Take my Eyes off of You … the horn section alone is epic. But then yesterday we lost the lovely Peter Tork of the Monkees and I remembered that this song was released in 1967 as well. So I thought for my Day 18 question I would choose a song from the year I was born and also give a little tribute to Peter Tork. I give you Daydream Believer by The Monkees
Okay don’t be shy … share with me over on Facebook a song from the year you were born?
