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:
Did you know that the Beatles were originally called The Silver Beetles? Terrible band name, right? Well, they were! And today back in 1960 they auditioned to be Billy Fury’s backing band. Obviously they did bigger things, but it’s important to know these other not-so-great names they considered: The Beatals and Long John and the Silver Beetles. What could have been! Anyhow, enjoy these wonderful music videos from an eclectic line-up of hardworking TuneCore Artists:
