Song of the day: Alvin Stardust- Pretend

alvin stardust pretend

A week ago, I had my driving lesson, and whilst driving home, I heard this song through the car. I always liked the song and it put me in a good mood! Therefore, and since it’s a big hit coming from 1981, it is featured in the History Of Music! So I was looking up some information, and I discovered the song was not from 1981! Or at least the original song isn’t. The cover is, but okay, the original was made in 1952. A cover was made in 1959 by Carl Mann, which largely was the base for this song. I never heard the original, but I will search for it, since it could be interesting to compare! Enjoy

Song of the day: Aretha Franklin- Respect

Since 1952 active, still active, and hits in the sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties and the zeroes.
There are not a lot of people who can say that. Aretha Franklin can.

She had a lot of hits, and a lot of them are on this 2cd collection. And there is another nice detail: She also appeared on the soundtrack of the Blues Brothers, a few days ago. That song was called Think, an really good song!

However, it’s not the song of the day. And a lot of other hits are not song of the day either: there’s one song lucky.

And that is Respect! Respect for this woman, who enriched the music a lot!
