Five on Friday - The "Meme Turns One" Version

Blogging funk or no blogging funk I couldn't miss this special edition of Travis' Five on Friday meme. After all, memes only turn one once and today marks the first anniversary of the musical meme where you pick five of your favorite songs whether they be in a set, following a stream of consciousness, or just randomly pulled out of your head and then share them with your readers as well as the others who participate in Five on Friday.  It's hard to believe that it's been an entire year since the first Five on Friday appeared over on Trav's Thoughts but it has been; I guess time really flies when you sharing something that you love.

In celebration of this auspicious milestone I decided to create a set using the word "One" as my central theme.  I had a couple of songs in mind when I started this set and then the rest came pretty easily after that.  Chances are good I could have listed a lot more than the five below but this week I really wanted to make this FIVE on Friday!

I hope you enjoy this week's five songs and I'd also like to say a big thank you to Travis for this meme.  If you haven't joined us yet then I can only ask why not??

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


  1. I love the REM song, though, kind of sad that you didn't include One by U2.

  2. these are all great picks!!
    now you've got me thinking of all the songs with 'One' in them
    the U2 song is a great one
    elton john also has a great 'one' song

    thanks for the music :)

  3. @SilverNeurtic - I did think about the U2 song along with the Metallica song but I really wanted to stick to just five this week and the ones I did choose, I really like. Perhaps I'll have to do a Two of One set?

    @Dianne - I totally forgot about the Elton John song - dangit, I love me some Elton John!

  4. May I suggest that you need to start thinking of yourself as One Singular Sensation"!!!

  5. Good list...I went with the party/anniversary theme

  6. I love this weeks choices very much.

    So when you go on your cruise what is your blog background and header going to be? Something tropical? Just asking.

    Have a terrific day Linda. Big hug. :)

  7. OK, so that explains the 'one week' lyrics on facebook the other day!

    And I'm so ready for something tropical right NOW!

  8. In answer to your question onm my Journal, Linda, we in Britain saw 'Sherlock' some moths ago. I believe the guy playing Watson has been given the role of Bilbo Baggins in 'The Hobbit'.

  9. Love your 5 choices and I actually know all of those songs! lol Shawn is the one who introduced me to REM when he bought the tape cassette with the song "Losing My Religion". I kept borrowing the tape from him and playing it over and over again:-) You had me thinking of songs with the word ONE in the title... One Tin Soldier, One Toke Over The Line, One Eyed Purple People name a few!! xoxo

  10. Great choices! Srsly.

    Big hugs, honey...

  11. My husband started doing some awesome dance moves to the Bare Naked Ladies one, Linda! Oh, for some video footage...

    Happy 5 on Friday anniversary - it's been an amazing year sharing tunes, and you've introduced me to a lot of stuff I've fallen in love with.

  12. Now that's a great theme idea! Using "One" songs never occurred to me.

    Thanks for playing along every week!
