My Music

Tell us how your week went by putting together a playlist of  five songs that represent it.


This puts me in something of a dilemma.  I am not into pop music these days. I hate the stuff most kids like.  It’s been a long time since I listened to much besides classical or sacred.  But let me dig back into the archives of my own youth and see what I can come up with:

1. Sixteen Tons and What do you Get?  Another Day older and Deeper in Debt (Tennessee Ernie Ford)

2.  I’m Leavin’ on a Jet Plane (Glen Campbell)

3.  I’m on the Top of the World (Karen Carpenter)

4.  Raindrops (snowflakes!) Keep Fallin’ on my Head (BJ Thomas)

5.  When I was a Young Man Woman and Never Been Kissed (Jimmie Rodgers)

You can find all these golden oldies on You Tube.  They really do reflect my week.  I’m going on a girlfriend getaway in April with two lifetime friends, and I just made the flight reservations this week.  I think the other songs are self-explanatory.

    You have me reminiscing! Though I never heard and can’t really relate to #5 (childhood or adult home)(blessed you are!), I certainly remember being at the piano playing “Raindrops” over and over. And from twirling around carefree in my very pink bedroom to the favorite, “Top of the World”, I know it’s a day to treasure when one can own that song! That mesmerizing “Jet Plane” song can still bring ache and hope simultaneously. Dad would joke (or not joke!) about “Another day older and deeper in debt” with Mom coming back with “One Day at a Time ” or “Because He Lives” 🙂 I’m sure we’d have many gospel quartet songs and hymns in common, too. Blessed Sunday to you!
