Let’s all get up and dance to a song
That was a hit before your mother was born
Though she was born a long, long time ago
Popular music tends to have a pretty short memory, and a lot of incredible music gets forgotten. Let’s bring some of it back…as an arbitrary cut off point, no songs written since your mother was born are eligible.
To open up some options, we’ll say that the specific recording doesn’t necessarily have to predate your mother’s birth, but the song must. Extra points for posting mp3s of those old 78s you have lying around, of course, but a current performer drawing from the hits of past eras is fair game.
