1. Post a video of a song that makes you think about being a teenager.

“Where the Action Is”, by Paul Revere and the Raiders. Written by Steve Venet and Tommy Boyce, it was the theme song for the TV show of the same name, which ran from 1965 to 1967.

As a teen-ager at this time, I remember this show and watched it all the time. Later, the show went on tour with Paul Revere and the Raiders, plus a lot more singing stars of the day. They did come to our town, and I went to it … amazing and fun … it was the first concert I ever went to.

2. Post a video of a song that is about finding your voice.

This prompt is something I don’t understand, so … here’s a good song … maybe about finding your ‘voice’ as a writer.

“Paperback Writer” by the Beatles, credited to Lennon/McCartney, was released in 1966.

3. Post a video of a song that represents a “I’ll kick your ass attitude”.

***

“How Do You Like Me Now”, by Toby Keith, was co-written by him, and released in 1999.

This song is kind of funny, because the guy finally made it as a singing star, and he goes back to show the girl that snubbed him back in high school, what she missed out on.

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 6: Katy Perry – Firework

Thanks, Hugh, for hosting this fun challenge.

This week for the Songs From the Past challenge I’ve chosen one by Paul Revere and the Raiders. This band was my favorite back in the 60s, and I liked all their songs. They were featured on Dick Clark’s television show, “Where the Action Is”, which came on every afternoon. Then, when they took the show on tour, they came to our town. My best friend and I got tickets to go see them, and all the other bands that were traveling along. That might have been the first concert I ever went to, and it was a dream come true for me and my friend.

It was the early spring of 1966, a beautiful sunny day, and we were  both 15 years old. The concert was amazing. Afterwards, we made our way out to the back of the venue to see the band as they got on their tour bus to leave. I was waving and hollering, and I know for a fact that one of the guys saw me, smiled, and waved back to me.

Such good memories of that day, and hearing this song and all their other ones bring me right back to that day. 🙂
