Eric Burdon and the Animals

It's a hard world to get a break in 
All the good things have been taken 
But girl, there are ways 
To make certain things pay 
Though I'm dressed in these rags 
I'll wear sable
Someday . . .
It's my life and I'll do what I want 
It's my mind and I'll think what I want 
(From the Animals' 1965 hit single, "It's My Life," perhaps the most honest and unapologetic rock song ever recorded.  Today is Animals' lead singer Eric Burdon's 70th birthday.)
