Songs By Ten Singers Born On This Date

Apparently, June 26th was a great day to be born if you wanted to grow up to become a popular singer and/or musician. All ten of the artists in this small collection share a birthday today. Help them celebrate by listening to one of their best-known songs. And enjoy!  ~  JH

1)  Ariana Grande ft. Mac Miller  ~  “The Way”  (Ariana turns 24 years old today.)

2)  OneRepublic  ~  “I Lived”  (Ryan Tedder, the band’s lead singer, is celebrating his 38th today.)

3)  Gretchen Wilson  ~  “When I Think About Cheatin’”  (As of today, Gretchen has been alive for 44 years. Congrats, redneck woman!)

4)  Big Bill Broonzy  ~  “Backwater Blues”  (This blues legend would be 124 years old if he were alive today. Unfortunately, he passed away at age 65, a whopping 59 years ago!)

5)  The Sundays ~  “Summertime”  (Harriet Wheeler, the lead singer for The Sundays, turns 54 today.)

6)  The Clash  ~   “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?”  (Mick Jones, co-lead singer of The Clash and the main vocalist of this classic tune, is 62 years old as of today.)

7)  Berlin  ~  “Take My Breath Away”  (Terri Nunn, Berlin’s lead singer, celebrates her 56th today. Happy birthday!)

8)  Billy Davis, Jr. & Marilyn McCoo  ~  “You Don’t Have To Be A Star (To Be In My Show)”  (This husband-wife duo produced some great R&B and soul music in the mid-1970s and beyond. Today, Billy is celebrating his 79th birthday with his wife of nearly 50 years. Yep, it’s still Marilyn!)

9)  Patty Smyth & Don Henley  ~  “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough”  (One of the great duets of the past 25 years, this song pairs birthday girl Patty Smyth – who turns 60 today – and Eagles alum Don Henley, who turns 70 next month.)

10)  Chris Isaak  ~  “Wicked Game”  (Hard to believe this modern classic is now 27 years old. Even harder to believe its singer turns 61 today!)
