Upon its initial release, The Clash’s “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” reached number 17 on the UK singles chart. Following the song’s inclusion in a Levi’s commercial, the single was reissued in 1991 and this time went to number one on the UK singles chart, knocking out Bart Simpson’s “Do The Bartman.” That in a nutshell is the UK singles chart.

The Clash’s Mick Jones turns 68 today. Showing him some love on today’s playlist.

Iggy Pop’s Real Wild Child

Ringo + Iggy 001
In the UK Iggy Pop has had one top ten single – “Real Wild Child (Wild One).” It’s a cover of a 1958 single by Australian rocker Johnny O’Keefe. O’Keefe’s version didn’t chart in the US or the UK; however, a remake done by Jerry Allison, one of Buddy Holly’s Crickets, reached #68 in the US.

Pop’s version appears on his album Blah Blah Blah. It didn’t crack the US pop chart, though it did reach #27 on the Album Rock chart.

Today Tunes du Jour celebrates Iggy’s 67th birthday.
