Yes indeedy! It’s time for Motivational Music Monday from Jamesy over at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest. Everyone is free to play, so please head on over to his site (even if it’s not Monday no mo’) and tell him a song that makes you happy. (You should go check it out anyway… he got new running shoes and I photo-bombed his picture… but he paid me back because he bloody well posted it!) :O
Anyway, James posted a song that was originally recorded in 1972, which was then re-mixed last year to include the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s really cool to put headphones on and listen to it. So, as the original recording took place in 1972, the song I’ve chosen is the one song that kept it out of the #1 spot for a week way back when. Yes, believe it or not, My Ding-A-Ling was #1 on the U.S. charts in 1972, as well as in the UK, Ireland, and Canada. And yes, believe it or not, this song really IS on one or two of my running playlists.
FYI, this was the only #1 song for Chuck Berry.
Chuck Berry, My Ding-A-Ling
In other news… on Sunday, I met up with Judy from Chocolate Runs Judy. She was visiting the Seattle area for the weekend, so we went and snatched her up and took her to lunch and to the mall! It was pouring of rain that day, so there wasn’t much else we could do (and stay dry), but we had great fun! What a wonderful person she is… I felt like we were long lost friends! #lifeisgreat #bloggersunite
Hope you’ve had a wonderful Monday and were able to start the week off with a smile!
