Old School Fridays: Song From The Year of Your Birth

Ok, I know it's Saturday. I'm a day late. This has been a long week and somewhere I forgot what day it was. I missed posting last week so I'm not going to miss this week too.

I wasn't expecting to find a lot to chose from since my birth year wasn't a big year for rock and roll. But when I saw Ray Charles had released "What d'I Say" I didn't need to look any farther.

I decided to add more since I was really surprised that there were such good choices. I've included Ricky Nelson singing "It's Late." This video is actually from 1959. Ricky Nelson is one of those rockers that really doesn't get justice for his place in music. He was a lot more than just another pretty face.

And finally one of my favorite musicians of all time...Buddy Holly singing his sequel to Peggy Sue.

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participants

If you want to join in on the fun
