On This Day, Start Me Up

rolling stonesOn this day in 1995 Windows 95 was released and, as all us oldies, will remember the song used in the adverts was ‘Start Me Up’ by the Stones. Not one of their best, from the Tattoo You album it seems that the Glimmer Twins were paid £12,000,000 ($17,500,000).

It was a great marketing move by Bill Gates as we were warned about what we were getting. Now, what were the lyrics again? “You make a grown man cry”. (He should have warned us about Vista as well)
