I was reminded of this song the other week whilst listening to a recording of Nightride from a few years back and Charles Nove played the Tracy Ullman version. A quick check on Google reveals that a session band called Reunion recorded the original back in 1974.
Anyway it gave me the idea for an occasional series of posts on radio-related songs. There are a couple of uploads of Life is a Rock on YouTube, but this one has the most plays and the best video. Just try to sing along with this!
The song also comes under the other category of “list songs”. Over on Wikipedia someone has gone to the trouble of listing all the references.
