Happy birthday, Ronnie Spector and Ian Anderson

Today's birthdays include Ronnie Spector, who is 67, and Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, 63.

When Ronnie sang "Be My Baby" there were a whole lotta guys who would have been her baby. As it was she picked nutbar Phil Spector, but luckily got away before she met the same fate as the woman he killed. This clip from Shindig shows how sexy and cute the Ronettes were, and how Ronnie could move those hips.

Jethro Tull, they of the dark sound, and live, the gyrations of Ian Anderson. His distinctive voice is just one of the many memorable things about this unique band.

Happy birthday to the both of you! When we listen to these great songs we're all living in the past.
