You Say It’s Your Birthday


With birthday tributes permeating the internet, television, radio and turntables, October 9 has become an unofficial holiday for many music fans, particularly those impacted by the life and music of John Lennon. However, the celebration doesn’t end there. Other artists born on this day who have left an indelible mark include John Entwistle, Jackson Browne, PJ Harvey and Al Jourgensen. My personal collection has no less than 50 albums representing their work, and I have some glaring holes in said collection. The videos below represent just a handful of memories and melodies that have stirred my soul over the years. Happy Birthday, John, John, Jackson, Polly Jean and Al!
