The Animals song “It’s My Life” is one of those songs that you just know is important. Truth be told, it was one of the first big songs to show that rock music could act as a force for social consciousness. The times they were a changin’… but slowly. Anyway, the song was a hit all over the world in 1965, but like so many Animal songs, is a forgotten oldie today.
