It’s time again for music that were born on this date, July 9. Click on the links and dance around as necessary to feel your stress fall away.
Bon Scott (1946-1980)
Scott was born in Scotland right after the end of World War II, and moved with his family to Australia when he was a child. In 1974 he joined the band AC/DC, and was their vocalist until his death in 1980.
Check him out here performing “Touch Too Much”.
Marc Almond (born 1957)
You may not know his name, but Almond was half of the duo Soft Cell. When this comes on the car radio, I’m betting that you do the car dance. Unless only people my age do that.
Here’s “Tainted Love”.
Jim Kerr (born 1959)
We’ve got another Scot in this edition of birthday music. Kerr was the vocalist for Simple Minds. Their most famous song, “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” will immediately plunge you into the 1980s and the movie The Breakfast Club.
While that is a good song, I much prefer “Alive and Kicking”.
Hope you enjoyed these songs and this little birthday tribute.
