FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Old Time Rock and Roll’ Michelle Birkballe

‘Old Time Rock And Roll’ writer Pete Seger



Michelle Birkballe is a Danish singer , guitarist and composer.

Birkballe grew up in the village of Thorsager on Djursland , as number four out of six siblings. As a 16-year-old, she traveled to Wales , where she worked as a shepherd , until she moved to Aarhus at the age of 18 to become a full-time musician. 

Entertaining the oldies with some rock and roll. OK they may not be dancing but they sure are clapping and having a good time

Lyrics below

Just take those old records off the shelf
I’ll sit and listen to ’em by myself
Today’s music ain’t got the same soul
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Don’t try to take me to a disco
You’ll never even get me out on the floor
In ten minutes I’ll be late for the door
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Won’t go to hear ’em play a tango
I’d rather hear some blues or funky old soul
There’s only one sure way to get me to go
Start playing old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Call me a relic, call me what you will
Say I’m old-fashioned, say I’m over the hill
Today’s music ain’t got the same soul
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

  1. A good ol’ tub thumping way to wake up this morning! A bit of the Bonnie Tyler about Michelle B, which ain’t no bad thing!
    Clap along audiences…I always imagine that must be a band’s worst nightmare as no one seems to be able to clap in time! Must be very off putting! Still, I guess that’s why the band’s up there and they’re down there!?
    Cheers, Dom.
