Everyone responded so wonderfully to my new to us music post a few days ago that I have decided to try and make this a reoccurring thing. However, I think I will try to include some sort of theme for us to play with. Today's theme is, in honor of Benevolent Snacktastic (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!), Number 1 hit from your Birthday. That's right, capital "B" Birthday. What was the Number 1 song on the Billboard charts the day you were born?
My Birthday hit was "I Love Rock 'N Roll" by Joan Jett and The Blackhearts.
What is your favorite use of your Birthday song? Does someone do an awesome cover? Was it used well in film? Fun childhood memory? Absolutely hate it?
I personally love this song. My favorite use is when it was woven into a mashup with The Beatles, Cypruss Hill, House of Pain, and RATM.
What does everyone think? Should this become a thing? Should I have some sort of music themed post every Friday morning (east coast North America time)? Did I pre-post this thing correctly? I am actually writing this Wednesday evening. This is by far the most complex post I have attempted, so I give it a 50-50% chance it posts on Mars in the year 16103. Sabriel and Benevolent Snacktastic get a shout out and deserve the inspiration points for this.
