We’re back wishing you and yours a very happy Wednesday, but also as always, bringing the heat! (The heat, in this case, being a bunch of awesome TuneCore Artist music videos for y’all to vibe out on and hopefully avoid the temptation of taking a midweek nap.) Would you believe that on this day, two songs that still refuse to leave your head just from reading their titles were released a mere 12 years apart from each other?! That’s right: Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” hit #1 in 1987, followed by Sir Lou Bega’s “Mambo No. 5” in 1999. We’re willing to bet there’s a pub or a school dance out there that’ll accidentally play those back to back never knowing their interconnection.
