Another 80s flashback to a song I’ve always loved by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musicians, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll was originally recorded by the British group The Arrows in 1975, but was brought to fame by Joan Jett’s recording of this song in 1981 and it reaching the top of the charts for weeks in 1982. I was originally hoping for a cool photo of an old jukebox for this song, but they are difficult to find nowadays and I was having a hard time convincing anyone to go on a dive bar crawl to find one. After a week of still feeling exhausted from all the Super Bowl excitement and shoveling snow every day, it seemed like a perfect time for a little indoor photography. Nothing like a cold, snowy February day spent indoors looking for a 1981 or 1982 dime in the coin jar for the great lyrics “put another dime in the jukebox.”
On a different musical note in case you find yourself indoors on this cold, snowy February day, tonight on Showtime the documentary Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars in being shown.
Did I mention it was cold and snowy and only February???
