A happy birthday to :

Angus McKinnon Young (1955) : Scottish-born Australian guitarist best known as a co-founder, lead guitarist, and songwriter of the Australian hard rock band, AC/DC. Known for his energetic performances, schoolboy-uniform stage outfits, and popularisation of Chuck Berry's duckwalk, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Young as the 24th greatest guitarist of all time. In 2003, he and the other members of AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. AC/DC have remained together since their formation in 1974 and have released 15 studio albums. The band have shipped over 200 million albums worldwide, with 70 million certified units in the US. Their 1980 studio album, Back in Black, is accountable for 50 million of those worldwide sales and is the second all time highest-selling album worldwide.

AC/DC Money Talks
From the album : The Razors Edge (1990)

"Moneytalks" is a song written by Malcolm and Angus Young and produced by Bruce Fairbairn for the hard rock band AC/DC. Originally released on 21 September 1990 on the album The Razors Edge, it was later released as a single in December later that year. A live version of the song recorded on the band's 1990-1991 Razors Edge World Tour appeared on AC/DC's two live albums of 1992, Live and Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition.
The song is one of AC/DC's biggest hits, breaking the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, the UK Singles Charts, and the Australian ARIA Singles Chart. It is still the band's highest charting single in the United States, at number 23 (no other AC/DC single has even cracked the top 30). During their subsequent world tour, thousands of "Angus Bucks" were dropped on the audience during the song. A music video of the song, directed by David Mallet, was also released, featuring a live performance during the tour.
The song appears in the trailer to the 2011 film, Moneyball.

12th March 1983 ..."Total Eclipse Of The Heart"

Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler had her only UK No.1 single with a song written by Meat Loaf's producer, Jim Steinman, 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart'. Also No.1 in the US, (the only Welsh artist to score a US No.1), Canada and Australia, the single sold over 5 million copies.

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" is a song written and produced by Jim Steinman, and recorded by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler for her studio album Faster Than the Speed of Night.
Released as a single in early 1983 in the UK and later that summer in the US, it was the first release from the album and became Tyler's biggest career hit, reaching number one in several countries including the UK, where it was the fifth-best-selling single in 1983, and the US, making her the first and only Welsh singer to reach the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100. It was Billboard's number-six song of the year for 1983.
With physical sales in excess of 9 million copies, Tyler's recording is one of the best-selling singles of all time. In a 2013 UK survey, the song came first in a list of most popular songs to sing in the shower, above songs by Justin Bieber, Robbie Williams, One Direction and Elton John.

After her contract with RCA Records ended in 1981, Tyler found a new manager in David Aspden and after seeing Meat Loaf perform "Bat Out of Hell" live on The Old Grey Whistle Test, approached Jim Steinman and asked him to be her producer. Tyler visited Steinman in his apartment in New York in April 1982 with her manager, where she was presented with two tracks — "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" and "Goin' Through the Motions". She stated that had she not liked the songs Steinman played for her, he would have rejected Tyler. She returned to his studio apartment weeks later, where Steinman and Rory Dodd presented "Total Eclipse of the Heart" to her. Steinman told People magazine he "wrote it to be a showpiece for Tyler's voice."
The power ballad remains Tyler's most successful song, peaking at No. 1 in the United States, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom. At its peak, it sold 60,000 copies per day, and approximately 6 million copies in total. It won the Variety Club award in the UK for best single of 1983. The song also made number 82 of VH1's top 100 love songs.
According to Meat Loaf, Steinman had written the song, along with "Making Love Out of Nothing at All", for Meat Loaf's album Midnight at the Lost and Found; however, Meat Loaf's record company refused to pay Steinman and he wrote separate songs himself. "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was then given to Bonnie Tyler and "Making Love Out of Nothing at All" to Air Supply. Tyler has denied this claim.
The song's melody originally appeared as part of the soundtrack for the 1980 film A Small Circle of Friends.

Mike DeGagne from Allmusic described "Total Eclipse of the Heart" as "one of the finest ballads ever to hit radio." He noted the "lush instrumentation" and said that Tyler's voice "produced the perfect type of "desperate lovelorn" effect to suit the romantic lyrics." Donald A. Guarisco, also from Allmusic, reviewed Faster Than the Speed of Night, and noted the song as an "epic ballad," describing the whole album as "rock at its most melodramatic." Jim Beviglia from American Songwriter said that Tyler's raspy vocals helped to legitimize the "melodrama inherent in the lyrics," and described the song as a "garment-rending, chest-beating and emotionally exhausting ballad" that suits the throes of a turbulent relationship.

The music video for "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was directed by Russell Mulcahy. It was story-boarded by Jim Steinman and drew inspiration from the 1976 film Futureworld. The Gothic-themed video features Bonnie Tyler clad in white, apparently having an erotic dream or fantasy about her students in a boys' boarding school. Young men are seen dancing and participating in various school activities such as swimming, karate, gymnastics, football, fencing, soccer, and singing in a choir. The video was shot at Holloway Sanatorium, notable for its Gothic architecture and distinguished for the multi-arched grand entrance as seen at the end of the video.

A happy birthday to :

Identical twin brothers, Craig and Charlie Reid (1962) : from the Scottish band The Proclaimers, who had the 1987 UK No.3 single 'Letter From America', 1988 UK No.6 album 'Sunshine Over Leith' as well as the 2007 UK No.1 single with the Comic Relief charity hit 'I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles).' 

The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)
From the album : Sunshine On Leith (1988)

"I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" is a song written and performed by The Proclaimers. It was released on their 1988 Sunshine on Leith album, and subsequently as a single. It has become their most popular song, reaching No. 11 in the UK charts and No. 1 on the Australian ARIA Charts in 1989, and No. 3 in the United States Billboard Hot 100 in 1993 when the song appeared in the film Benny & Joon. The song has become a live staple at their concerts. The Proclaimers played it at Edinburgh 50,000 – The Final Push, the final concert of Live 8 at Murrayfield Stadium on 6 July 2005, to symbolise the conclusion of "The Long Walk to Justice".

The song is often played in the warm up before the Scotland matches when playing at home at Hampden Park in Glasgow, and again when the team scores.
Scottish darts player Robert Thornton uses the song as his walk-on song.
In 2007, comedians Peter Kay and Matt Lucas recorded a cover version in aid of Comic Relief.
In 2007, Alvin and the Chipmunks covered the song, with minor lyric changes, for their video game Alvin and the Chipmunks.
At the end of the fourth series of the new Doctor Who, a video of the cast and crew of the show (as well as The Proclaimers themselves) singing and dancing along to the song was released, as a farewell to David Tennant, Russell T. Davies, and other key players in the show's development; hailing the shift into the Steven Moffat era of the show.
The song was also very popular in Spain in the late 1990s thanks to TV advertisements. It was a reference song for the ads of Retevisión, one of the first private telecommunications companies in Spain.
The song is also featured on the How I Met Your Mother episode "Arrivederci, Fiero," in which it is revealed that the character Marshall has had a cassette tape with the song on it stuck in his car for years. Commentary on the song's unlimited replay value follows. It has since become a running gag on the series.
This song is also feautured on the "Grey's Anatomy" episode in season 9 "Readiness is All" when Matthew proposes to April in a surpise flash-mob to this song.
The song is featured in the movies Bachelorette, Identity Thief, Benny & Joon and Burke and Hare. It is also featured in the movie The Angels' Share directed by Ken Loach, which won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012.
A remix of the song with David Guetta's Titanium is featured in Pitch Perfect.
In 2013, Randall Munroe calculated on his blog What If that, because the original version of the song is approximately 213 seconds long, and the International Space Station orbits the Earth at ~4.76 miles per second (7.66 km/s), an astronaut listening to the song on the ISS would have travelled very nearly exactly 1,000 miles from the beginning of the song until its end.

Hay (casi) de todo. Precios altos en la mayoría de los casos. Suele haber bastante rotación de marcas/locales (sea bueno o malo).

Muy divertido para ir en grupo. El precio puede parece algo excesivo (20€ tanda), pero una vez ves las instalaciones y equipamiento lo ves acorde.

Posiblemente, la mejor Pastelería de Barcelona. Atrás quedan grandes nombres de la repostería de la ciudad condal... si quieres disfrutar de un capricho dulce, digno de los paladares mas selectos y a precios realmente populares, ni lo dudes. Muy, muy recomendables las cerezas y la tatin.
