"It's My Life" by Talk Talk

Birthday wishes go out to Paul Webb, bassist for British pop group Talk Talk, whose tenure on the scene lasted from 1981 to 1991; since the dissolution of Talk Talk, Webb has been involved in the group .O.rang.

It's My Life was the title track of the band's 1984 album; not a huge hit upon it's release - in fact, it failed to even crack the Top 40 in the UK - the song fared better when it was re-released in 1990 in support of the band's greatest hits package Natural History: The Very Best of Talk Talk, making it all the way to #13 at that time. The song has since been covered by No Doubt, who gave the song a 1930s-style video, making it a kind of catnip to me, although the original video - with all the animals and such - is pretty cool too.
