Five on Friday - The "I Told You So!" Version

Five on Friday - Halloween editionTime again for Travis' fun Five on Friday meme wherein I get to pick five songs be they in a theme or not and inflect your eardrums share them with you!  Should you wish to join us some Friday and play along head on over to Trav's Thoughts where he gives you an easy-to-do guideline as well as shares some very good tuneage of his own choosing! It's a win-win!

Speaking of wins, my featured artist for this week didn't win American Idol but he may as well have as he's launched a very successful musical career following his time on the show. I knew right from Week One that Adam Lambert had "it" when he made his debut on Season Eight and he never failed to impress with each subsequent week. When Amanda would crack on me for watching AI, I always told her that I was only watching for Adam and it was true - I haven't watched a single show since the end of Season Eight.

I'm also happy to report that the kid who cracked on me finally cracked herself and Amanda now has a few Adam Lambert tunes on her iPod. Needless to say I was quite happy to tell her "I told you so!" over and over as was my parental right! I listen to so much stuff that she's introduced me to that it's kind of nice to have the tables turned every once in awhile; I think the last time I managed to get her to listen to some of 'my' music was when I introduced her to Depeche Mode.

Anyway without further ado, for your entertainment I give you Adam Lambert and what the heck, let's make it six on Friday instead of five because I'm feeling good!

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


  1. Love your current blog design, very autumn!

    I think it's so cool that you can add the mp3 player into your blog post like that, but even cooler that you're into Adam Lambert songs!

    Have a great weekend!

    I like his version of Mad World. Great choice for today!

  3. I also like his version of Mad World.

    I knew the first time I heard and saw him that he should win. While I don't care for some of his stuff, most of it blew me away. Because of his theatrical style and stage presence, I can totally see him in Vegas 25 years from now. =:-0

  4. Adama Lambert is a truly unique performer and I have to get some of his on the IPOD, particularly since Feeling Good is one of my favorite songs. Wonderful selections today.

  5. I haven't heard of Adam Lambert and I can't listen to your playlist. It's nice that you and your daughters share 'some' tastes in music. ;)

  6. the new look

    Second...he never really connected with me, though some of his stuff is listenable...

  7. Definately an Adam Lambert flavour here.

  8. I like him. I just don't keep up with music anymore. Sigh.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

  9. I wanted to drop in and say thanks for the comments you left about my 5 on Friday at Julia's blog.

    It's awesome to meet you. I hope you'll stop in at the Meet and Greet from time to time.

  10. I'll add my WOW to your new blog look - gorgeous, dahling.

    Adam's Mad World is a huge fave of mine. But I love your whole set.

  11. The kid is definitely talented, and he held my interest during his season on AI. I'll agree with everyone else that the cover of Mad World is a show stopper. I'm also partial to his cover of Feeling Good.

    I hadn't heard much of his post-Idol work though.

    Great Set today.
