Soundtrack- Bye Bye Birdie
I actually got this record as a joke. Jessica and I are huge Mad Men fans and I found this for dirt cheap shortly after we saw the episode where Bye Bye Birdie was a central them to one episode. We were singing "Bye Bye Birdie" for days after, so I had to get it.
It's not a bad soundtrack at all, but not something I'll play a lot. And I've never seen the movie. I hate musicals. But, I will keep it though. You never know when myself or Jessica might have the hankering to hear "Bye Bye Birdie" or "Put On A Happy Face". Which reminds me, is this the first recording of this song? I had no idea Dick Van Dyke did it.
Well that's it for the letter B. Some notable bands/artists that are missing from my collection in the letter B are: The Beach Boys, Beta Band, The Byrds, Chet Baker, James Brown, Blue Cheer, Built To Spill, Broken Social Scene, and David Baerwald to name a few. Help me out with who I'm forgetting. I also plan on completing existing collections before I make the turn as well.
