Five on Friday - The Day Late +1 Version!


I totally missed doing a post for Travis' Five on Friday yesterday even though the intentions were there to play along with his musical meme this week.  Ah, the best laid plans of mice, men, and music!  Anyhow, to make up for missing Five on Friday, I'm going to post Six on Saturday with six songs starting from the year that I graduated from high school - 1976.  Turns out that not only did I miss Travis' meme yesterday but I also missed my 35th high school class reunion last Saturday as the folks organizing the event had my old address and being that the forwarding order had expired, the good ol' US Post Office didn't bother to forward the invite or apparently even return it to sender.

From the looks of the Facebook page that the reunion group set up (another thing I didn't know about until too late), they had a pretty good turnout with 80 people attending and they all had a wonderful time.  I've been looking at some of the pictures and trying to place names to faces but I'm having a horrible time of it ... must be that early onset dementia I keep moaning about! I should be in great shape by the 40th reunion, huh?  High school?  I went to high school?  In Connecticut?  With other people??

Ah well, enjoy the music and hopefully I'll do better at remembering to play along on the proper day next week!

  2. My 10 year h.s. reunion is coming up this year. I kind of don't want to go, but S.D. promised to come with me so that might be fun. I think he'll be overwhelmed by the amount of students I graduated with...my graduating class is probably bigger than the normal population of the school where he went K-12.

  3. A great set for your missed high school reunion, Linda - you put together great themed sets.

    Hadn't heard a lot of these in a while. I found myself really enjoying Seven Year Ache (it's about as countryish as I can stand) and the Cliff Richard one.

  5. I graduated 8th grade in 1976. I definitely remember some of those tunes from junior high dances that year.

    Six on Saturday...what a great idea!

  6. I like your picks this week. Especially Anne Murray. I've not heard that on in a very long time.

    Have a terrific day. :)
