Here’s Bing Crosby for the Edsel from Ford Motor Company. At your Edsel dealer!
It’s been a busy week. There are always a lot more blogs to read at this time of the year, and I’ve been doing my best to get to everyone while maintaining this writing schedule I’ve set for myself. I can’t imagine trying to do this and hold down a responsible job. I sound like I’m complaining, but really, I’m not. The A to Z Challenge is still the highlight of my blogging year.
There are rumors of things starting to get back to normal. I’ll believe it when I see it.
Here’s the summary…
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: O. C. Smith, “Little Green Apples”
- Monday: Quintette du Hot Club de France, “Chicago”
- Tuesday: Frank Sinatra, “My Kind Of Town (Chicago Is)”
- Wednesday: Jim Croce, “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown”
- Thursday: Elvis Presley, “In The Ghetto”
- Friday: Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah, “Lake Shore Drive”
- Saturday: Chicago, “Take Me Back To Chicago”
This week, we finish with letters W through Z. Hang in there!
Monday was Mary’s birthday, so I built a playlist of the Top 15 songs of the year she was born. She says “thank you” to everyone who wished her a happy birthday, whether here or in your heart.
This week’s encore was Patti Page, who was quite popular, whether you were a pop or country fan.
The one-liner was about making decisions on where to go to celebrate something when everything is shut down and you’re self-isolating.
I discussed a number of recent purchases we’ve made since being stuck in the house.
The prompt was a word that started with “val.” I immediately thought of Julian Lennon’s first album, Valotte (1984), and talked a litle about him after playing the title track.
We finish the A to Z Challenge with a flourish on Thursday, meaning I need to prepare my Battle of the Bands for Friday. Tomorrow on M4, songs about angels or songs with “angel” in the title. The rest of the week, who knows? Probably a lot like last week.
