Happy birthday, musicians. Now get to work!

92859__ciara_lY’know what? I’m tired of haikuing my heart out to celebrate celebrities’ birthdays and getting nothing in return. No phone calls. No thank-you notes. No leftover gift certificates for shiatsu massage from the bottoms of their gift bags. And while I realize it’s not the fault of the half-dozen delightful musicians who turn a year older today, somebody’s got to pay the price.

With that in mind, singers and instrumentalists, line up against the wall! Today might be your big day, but no matter; you’re working at the pleasure of PopWatch. You’ll find your set list below. And Ciara (pictured)? Quit your frowning! We know you’re as much of a ham as the rest of these stars.

Helen Reddy (65 years young today): "I Am Woman"
Jon Anderson of Yes (62): "Owner of a Lonely Heart"
Chely Wright (36): "Single White Female"
Ciara (21): "Oh"
Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith (44): "Aeroplane"
Scorpions’ guitarist Matthias Jabs (50): "Rock You Like a Hurricane"

    Where has Helen Reddy been? She was the shizz back in the day…COMEBACK!

  • lauraelle

    Of all the songs you could put for Chad Smith, you put Aeroplane?
    Ugh, that CD was the worst. RHCP were terrible in the Dave Navarro days.

    Now, wait just a minute! Today is my birthday (35) and I was hoping that I would come here and find a nice haiku that I could choose to believe was written for me. I am so disappointed.

    Much like Michelle, today is my birthday too.
    I am no stranger to narcissm, and decided to write myself a b-day haiku:
    talk smack take numbers
    I get schooled once weekly
    but love ya popwatch!
    For Michelle:
    Cool comments written
    kicks ass your day’s in the fall
    scorpions rock y’all!

    Ep Sato,
    I have long been a fan of your eloquent commenting on this blog (I think I even referred to you as my hero once) so I am deeply touched.
    I am a little freaked out that we share a birthday.

  • Liza

    Since I suck at writing. I’ll skip the Haikus and just wish you all a happy birthday.

  • Ep Sato

    Michelle and Liza, thanks a mil for the kind words. Popwatch is my favorite place to go for a few moments away from the grind and some of my favorite writers either blog or comment on this site. Seriously, agree or disagree on politics or pop culture, I love the contributions everyone makes to this page.
    Oh, Michelle, we also share a birthday with awesome artist Pablo Picasso.
