Happy First Official Day of Summer! And happy 69th birthday to the legendary, all-important, more-relevant-than-ever (sorta) 33 and 1/3 RPM record! It was this day back in 1948 that sucker was manufactured and began to revolutionize how folks consumed their favorite music. Now settle into that summer feeling with some visual distractions: music videos from our endless catalog of awesome TuneCore Artists!
Ever hear Ray Stevens’ “The Streak”? No? Doesn’t ring a bell? What’s about, you ask? STREAKING. Like, running nude in public. Which apparently became such a craze in the early 1970s that our boy Ray had a #1 UK Pop Hit dedicated to it! In fact it jumped to that spot on this day in 1974. Hence why we’re bringing it up on a boring, slow-moving Wednesday afternoon. What else are we bringing? Why a bunch of TuneCore Artist music videos, of course! Distract yourself:
Happiest of Wednesday Video Diversion Birthdays to the King of Cool Dean Martin and the legendary Tom Jones! Let’s do right by these two trail blazers and drop everything, take our eyes off the clock (that will. not. move.) and enjoy a random round-up of TuneCore Artist music videos!
On May 31st back in 1975, the Rolling Stones were set to make an announcement at the 5th Avenue Hotel in New York City by holding a press conference. They’d be announcing their upcoming U.S. tour, but instead of a traditional press conference, they made rock ‘n roll history by showing up on the back of flatbed truck performing live in the street! See an awesome photo of that below. And below that? Yeah, another awesome round-up of TuneCore Artist music videos to help you drown your boredom on this snoozefest of a Wednesday afternoon!
It may seem like just yesterday, but in fact 20 years ago on this day, brotherhood boy band (and purveyors of some pretty serious blonde locks) Hanson kicked off their three-week run at Number 1 on the US Singles Chart with their infectious hit “MMMBop”. And for those of you who were around to remember and enjoy this three-week run, it’s likely that it actually felt like three months. Where are they now? Wikipedia will tell us! But if you’re looking for a deeper mid-week/mid-day distraction, enjoy this round-up of TuneCore Artist music videos below:
Today commemorates the first-ever Monterey Folk Festival, which took place back in 1963 and featured a couple of no-names like Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and Peter Paul and Mary. Wishing you were rocking out to that festival line-up instead of counting down the remaining hours of the day/week? Yeah, us too. But hey! Enjoy these wonderfully distracting TuneCore Artist music videos instead:
