Beware the Ides of March

15 Mar

2055 years ago today, Julius Caesar was killed by Brutus and betrayal’s never been the same.

When I was thinking of this momentous occasion earlier, I thought it would be super obvious to post the Ides of March’s huge 1970 hit, “Vehicle.”  The only really interesting reason to do that is because the main guy, Jim Peterik, went on to found Survivor and give us “Eye of the Tiger.”

Then I was going to post The Caesars’ “Jerk It Out” but that didn’t feel right either.

I’ve finally decided on The Hives’ “B is for Brutus.”

Wait!  That’s 4 songs today!  4!  I guess I’m just in that holiday kind of mood!

Happiest Ides of March to you and yours!
