#RMF2020: Love Potion No 9
Day 3 of #RocktoberMusicFest2020
This year for RocktoberMusicFest, I thought I would take us on a journey through Rock Music. The idea was inspired by my ThrowBack Thursday theme.
Starting with the 50’s, each week will represent a decade in Rock. As there are only 7 days in a week and there are 10 years in a decade, there will be quite a few songs overlooked. Don’t fret - I’m sure I’ll get those covered at some point in a Throwback Thursday post.
The idea behind RocktoberMusicFest is to celebrate Rock and Roll. It’s my hope that between my posts and yours that we will get to enjoy many of the different subgenres of rock.
The concept of this bloghop is to have a lot of fun and enjoy a lot of music. As rock and roll is known for breaking rules, I’ve left the rules of this hop wide open and quite simply this: Post when you can. You can post once, or join in every day. The only hard and fast rule is that your post contains rock music. Each day you will be invited to include your link in the comments of this blog. Please take a moment to visit those that have included their links in the comments. I’ll be doing my part to combat spam by removing links that are not part of the hop.
Sound fun? Okay - let’s get this party started!
The Song choice for today: Love Potion No 9
Artist: The Clovers
Year Representing: 1959
Wikipedia tells us this about the song:
"Love Potion No. 9" is a song written in 1959 by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It was originally performed by the Clovers, who took it to number 23 on the US as well as R&B charts that year.
Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass did an instrumental version (side 2, track 1) on his 1965 album Whipped Cream and Other Delights.
I’d love for you to join me in celebrating Rock Music this month. All you need to do is drop the link to your current Rock Music post in the comments. Be sure to code with html so the link is clickable. (See the announcement post for instructions on that) And then visit everyone that has left their links.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for more #RMF2020 fun!
