Five on Friday - The "Thanks" Version

It being the day after Thanksgiving here in the States, I decided that this week's Five on Friday set list should be all about saying 'thanks'. Thankfully there were more than enough songs to pick and choose from on; as a matter of fact, I had my choice between Bob Hope or Bing Crosby when it came to choosing a version of "Thanks for the Memories" and even though most people associate the song with Bob Hope, I chose the Bing Crosby version because let's face it, he was a better singer than Bob ... besides, I remember my Mom telling me that she was quite taken with Bing Crosby when she was a teenager so I went with her favorite!

Don't forget to swing over to Trav's Thoughts and see who else played along with his musical meme - I bet he'll be sure to say thanks for stopping by!

    great choices, Linda!

  2. Your Mom was right... Bing could sing the socks off of Bob.

    Hope you have a terrific day!

  3. I love the Dido and Bon Jovi songs. :)

  4. A great thankful set. I have not heard the Binger in quite a while.

  5. I just love that song.

    Hope your shift went by quickly yesterday.

    Have a terrific day Linda. Big hug. :)

  6. I love your theme today!

  7. No 'Thank you for the music'?

  8. Wonderful Grouping with lots of new things I've never heard.

  9. Two Thanksgiving sets and no repeats - I'm really impressed. I had no idea there were that many Thanksgiving songs out there.

    Bon Jovi's and Dido's are my favorites this week.

    And Linda - thanks for sharing that lovely picture from your post yesterday, plus your memories of your dad. The 25th is also my uncle's birthday (my second dad.) I think the universe gave us some wonderful men on Nov. 25th, don't you?


Thanks for visiting!
