Day #5 of the 30 Day Challenge is TOTALLY random! And believe me when I say…I TOTALLY went random with it!
#5-“A random song from you past!”
This was really hard for me because, when it comes to random songs from my past, the list is endless! However, I just decided to go on YouTube and start entering old song titles. Eventually, I came up with this one…”Somebody’s Baby” by Jackson Browne. It’s kind of smooth, mellow song…not a whole lot to it…but it’s very catchy. Furthermore, whenever I hear it I feel the need to do a certain little dance move or ‘totally tubular’ groove my friend and I used to do during the chorus every time we heard it. (Too hard to explain the little groove in words.) I always, always liked this song, but for some reason, it always sort of made me too relaxed and almost melancholy to be a favorite favorite song. Still, I like it!
Now, the interesting thing is…that although I had seen photos of Jackson Browne way back in 1982 when this song was popular…I’d never seen his band until today when I was watching this video (see below)! Seriously! They were VERY different from any other popular 80s band at the time! They’re like…sort of middle-aged! I couldn’t believe it!
Anyway, for my Day #5…here’s a random song from my past…popular the year I was 17…”Somebody’s Baby” by Jackson Browne and his middle-aged band!
