I’ve been on a bit of a Thin Lizzy trip lately, so I was extremely happy to find this link via MOJO:

As the description explains, “In 1982, a 70-year-old English granny named May Booker wrote a letter to the BBC about her favorite band, and how nice it would be to play with them. Then this happened.”

Here be the song that sparked the recent Lizzy listening (although the version on my ipod is a live session from John Peel’s show).

That’s a great story and a great video! I’m going to give up my workplace Song of the Day tomorrow and give it to you and this video. 🙂

Can I hear more of the “workplace song of the day”?

Tyler, a designer at work, occasionally puts a schedule together for who’s turn it is to pick a Song of the Day, and they provide a You Tube link. Because our product is a social networking application, we post it on our demo site. People often forget to post though and the whole thing falls apart.
