Happy birthday to Billy Moeller, born this day in 1946! I believe that's him in this 1967 video of Whistling Jack Smith's completely insane #20 hit "I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman"--although that's not him on the record. Long story.

Happy birthday to the late Claude François, born this day in 1939! Here's an insane 1964 TV performance of "La petite mèche de cheveaux," probably best described as "the 'Thriller' video, if it had French bobbysoxers instead of zombies and 'Three Blind Mice' instead of 'Thriller.'"

Happy birthday to Harry Wayne Casey, born this day in 1951! Here he is with a slightly pre-fame KC & the Sunshine Band--this is the 1974 video for "Queen of Clubs," which was a considerably bigger hit in the U.K. (where it kind of passed for glam) than in the U.S.
