Rayman’s Song of the Day-Born To Be Alive by Patrick Hernandez [VIDEO]

Hernandez was in his late 20s when this song was released, and had already spent a good portion of his life struggling to make it in the music industry. His father was a big-band guitar player and his mother was a singer, so music was in his blood. He moved to Paris in the late ’60s and toiled in bar bands for most of the ’70s before releasing his big hit. The song explains his lifestyle – refuse to settle down and keep chasing your dreams. It turned out to be his only hit, and the album was his only one released in America. Surprisingly little is known about what became of Patrick Hernandez, but if he kept his publishing rights, it’s safe to say he makes a nice income from this song.
