Radio 55, side A, track 3: “I Love Rock ‘N Roll” by Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, #27 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Joan Jett - I Love Rock and RollOh, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, you bet your sweet bippie that this song is on the Top 90 of the ’80s.  I would have more than OK if this would have been the #1 song of the decade.  That’s all that really needs to be said.

“I Love Rock ‘N Roll”

I saw him dancin’ there by the record machine

Knew he must’a been about seventeen

The beat was goin’ strong
Playin’ my favorite song

And I could tell it wouldn’t be long ’til he was with me
Yeah, me
And I could tell it wouldn’t be long ’til he was with me, yeah, me, singin’ I love rock ‘n roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock ‘n roll
So come and take your time and dance with me

Ow!

He smiled, so I got up and asked for his name

“But that don’t matter”, he said, “’cause it’s all the same”

He said, “Can I take ya home
Where we can be alone?”

And next we were movin’ on, he was with me
Yeah, me

Next we were movin’ on, he was with me, yeah, me, singin’ I love rock ‘n roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock ‘n roll
So come and take your time and dance with me

Ow!

He said, “Can I take ya home
Where we can be alooooone?”
Next we were movin’ on, he was with me
Yeah, me
And we’ll be movin’ on and singin’ that same old song, yeah, with me
Singin’ I love rock ‘n roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock ‘n roll
So come and take your time and dance with me

I love rock ‘n roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock ‘n roll
So come and take your time and dance with
I love rock ‘n roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock ‘n roll
So come and take your time and dance with
