Five on Friday Set 1

Posted: Friday, January 29, 2010 by Travis Cody in

Before we get to the tunes, I just want to say that I received my new laptop and I love it! I had a few skeery moments when I couldn't find my wireless network password, but I went to the website and was able to solve that problem.

Then it wouldn't recognize my cordless mouse. But I solved that too.

Not too bad for a tech ijit! And this was a much smoother introduction than when I bought the first machine.

Windows 7 has some pretty cool features. I'll spend time with it this weekend so I can get my settings the way I like them. And so I can start transferring some stuff from the old hard drive over here. But I'm online and able to access email, Yahoo messenger, my blog, and my Google Reader. So I'm good to go!

Now for our first official Five on Friday set. I might need a logo for this feature.

Eddie Money had more than 20 top 100 hits, including Take Me Home Tonight which reached #4 and Walk on Water which reached #9. I didn't go for the obvious for my selections in this first set. Rather I chose some of my favorites.


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

    Take me home tonight was always one of my favorite Eddie Money songs.

    My "Eddie Money memory" was a guy that I really really liked wore an Eddie Money concert t-shirt to school quite often. I wasn't a big fan of Eddie Money but I really liked that t-shirt :)

    I liked Eddie Money, but why are so many of his songs have the same titles as standards and it always throws me to hear a completely different song.

    Congratulations on the new pooter.

    Good to know there's still hope for us old dogs of tech.

    A banner or logo is a great idea for this feature. Maybe the number 5 superimposed over (on) the word Friday. Meh, it's just a thought.

    Trav, what characters and what 8 books in the series do you read in two weeks? I was curious after you commented on my blog. Glad you got your laptop and mouse figured out.

  1. Oooo, Travis, Eddie Money, love him.. Is this a new meme that you will be hosting? I love it! Let me know... Congrats on the new computer...I have to learn about Windows 7 - some of my students this semester may have gotten it.

    Congrats on the new computer! Didn't know much about Eddie Money, but these songs sound pretty good!

  1. Linda says:

    Makes me want to go dig through my CDs and pull out the one I have from Eddie Money, throw it on, and let it blast. Boy, does that bring back memories of times when I was much younger!

  1. Travis says:

    Lois: I know!

    Mike: My best friends were patience and persistence while getting through the set up.

    Charles: I like that one too.

    NNG: Indeed it is!

    Julia: Cause we stubbornly insist that we can rise above our challenges.

    CWM: Thanks!

    V: I don't like all of his work, but I like a lot of it.

    Akelamalu: It was much easier than I expected.

    Jennifer: That's a good one too.

    Spam will be deleted.

    Jamie: I haven't noticed that about his song titles. I'll have to be on the watch for it.

    Jeff: I took your advice and created a banner for this feature. Thanks for the idea!

    Dianne: Thank you!

    Mimi: It's definitely nice to have my own machine again.

    GGG: It was the Louisiana vampire series by Charlaine Harris.

    Mary: I don't think of it as a meme...more like a feature. But you're certainly welcome to join me. Maybe it'll evolve into a meme.

    I say again, spam will be deleted and deleted and deleted.

    Debra: He's in the top 100 for me.

    Linda: Oddly enough, I didn't have any of his music on CD. I just had it on cassettes. They were part of my digital conversion project.
