More of these birthdays today,

Though born a few years apart, who would have known two of the Monkees were indeed born on this day in history? Michael Nesmith and Davey Jones!
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWTa9CE51sA" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWTa9CE51sA</a>

So, the story is pretty well known, you know, Nesmith's mother invented "White Out" or "Liquid Paper", that office liquid to correct typing errors.

Del Shannon:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziLagAgoPCE" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziLagAgoPCE</a>


Elias McDaniel aka Bo Didley,
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XxGUIbYjmY" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XxGUIbYjmY</a>

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bo_Diddley

So, there are bound to be some more "golden oldies" and "oldies but goodies" on a day like today it seems, we will see what more might turn up.

http://www.hillbilly-music.com/artists/index.php
A few more birthdays at the "hillbilly-music.com" website; Skeeter Davis is mentioned and a number of other artists I am not familiar with, some of these, there is little info on the web about...

Per the song, Skeeter is well-known for, "End of the World", it has also been covered quite a few times, I had a Herman's Hermits greatest hits CD; and they performed it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_End_of_the_World_(Skeeter_Davis_song)

Written by Arthur Kent and Sylvia Dee...

One can read how many folks covered it, the Carpenters and so on.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThK5M8Ttzpw" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThK5M8Ttzpw</a>


Also, nice versions by Skeeter are at youtube, I believe she performed it on heehaw.

And another birthday to post, Paul Stockey of Peter, Paul and Mary:

And even a few more that can not be missed today,

Patti Smith, "Because the night" and others:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyhBRQaLU50" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyhBRQaLU50</a>


Jeff Lynne, ELO:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yntq1MFXxjo" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yntq1MFXxjo</a>


A lot of folks cover "Rock and Roll Is King", it's becoming recognized as a classic. I watched this one before, a Polish group performs it.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwFnq82rOLM" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwFnq82rOLM</a>


And of course, there is much more to Jeff Lynne, ELO, the Traveling Wilburys, the Move, etc.

Also, born on this day, Robert Quine of the Voidoids:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhzkA1qivdY" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhzkA1qivdY</a>


Maybe more to be listed later.

Sunday, December 31 2017 Music Thread. All Of Your Music Is Welcomed!
 :happyny:

Okay, I have seen New Year's Days listings of songs, U2's song comes to mind uppermost.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8BtB4C3Vi8" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8BtB4C3Vi8</a>

https://www.onthisday.com/music/birthdays.php    http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/born_today
http://www.hillbilly-music.com/artists/index.php

So, whom was born on this last day of the year for birthdays?

Odetta:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wEdCeJqddI" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wEdCeJqddI</a>


Idaho Call, there's one for one of the forum-member friends and from that hillbilly website above:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYrorN7gRKE" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYrorN7gRKE</a>


Andy Summers of the Police:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLFF2P8fInI" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLFF2P8fInI</a>


Henry John Deutschendorf, an air force brat, born in Roswell, New Mexico
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Denver You may know him as John Denver, quite a talent, he did then, move around quite a bit, growing up.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOB4VdlkzO4" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOB4VdlkzO4</a>

He also wrote "Leaving on a jet plane" among many other songs, Peter, Paul and Mary successfully performed that song.

Okay, Peter Quaife is listed again, some Kinks' songs were posted a few days ago.

Donna Summer was born on this day in history:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VF_o7aSjl_E" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VF_o7aSjl_E</a>
