Today is National Singles Awareness Day, a humorous holiday celebrated by those not in a romantic relationship.
But when I hear “singles” I’m not thinking of unpaired people, as a music lover what comes to mind is those 45 rpm records, the little ones. Since I love music so much, I have a 45 rpm spindle (used for singles) tattooed on my wrist, though my wrist is small the tattoo artist had to re-size the spindle in his outline.
So to celebrate records — the little ones of course — I want to share some of my favorite singles I had as a kid and teenager. And for extra fun, I’m going to post the ones that actually show the sleeve or label. ENJOY, it’s quite the variety. (And some of these I played when I deejayed in NYC!)
