“Old Time Rock and Roll” is a song written by George Jackson and Thomas E. Jones III, with uncredited lyrics by Bob Seger.
It was recorded by Seger for his tenth studio album Stranger in Town. It was also released as a single in 1979. It is a sentimentalized look back at the music of the original rock ‘n’ roll era and has often been referenced as Seger’s favorite song. The song gained renewed popularity after being featured in the 1983 film Risky Business.
It has since become a standard in popular music and was ranked number two on the Amusement & Music Operators Association’s survey of the Top 40 Jukebox Singles of All Time in 1996.
It was also listed as one of the Songs of the Century in 2001 and ranked No. 100 in the American Film Institute’s 100 Years…100 Songs poll in 2004 of the top songs in American cinema.
