Five on Friday Set 2

Posted: Friday, February 05, 2010 by Travis Cody in

Big thanks to my pal Jeff at A Word in Edgewise for his suggestions about a banner for my feature. And since Mary at Work of the Poet asked, I guess I can say now that we have a banner, it kind of becomes a bit meme-ish. So you are all welcome to play along on Fridays if you like. I'll give you some guidelines.

1. Grab the banner, make your post title Five on Friday, and be sure to link back here.
2. Go to to make your play list of five songs. Choose a particular theme to share with us. You can simply post the play list, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.
3. I don't know how to make a specific linky, so be sure to leave me a comment to let me know that you participated.
4. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.

Oh...before I get too big for my blitches (that's blog and britches in blog-speak), I shall give a nod to Mimi from Mimi Writes who, as the Queen of Memes, should be nodded to. Or perhaps I should tip my hat? Or bow?

I'm sure the proper etiquette will come to me. Or if it doesn't, Mimi will tell me what it is and then I shall do it.

And now without further fuss and nonsense, I present Five on Friday Set #2.

On 3 February 1959, a private plane crash took the lives of Buddy Holly, JP "Big Bopper" Richardson, and Ritchie Valens. I honor their music and legacy today.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

    Blitches made me laugh.
    I thought blitches were your blog bitches.

    Good music.
    Have a great weekend!

  1. That definitely was a big loss for music.

  1. barb says:

    Blitches got me, too, Trav! Actually I thought it said something else for a second there!

    I love American Pie!

    I don't think you will ever be too big for your blitches; you seem like too humble of a guy!

    If memory serves, "American Pie" was one of the very first 45 rpm records that I owned as a teenager. The only problem was that you had to flip the record over halfway through the song in order to hear the whole thing but it was definitely worth it! I guess those who have CDs know will never know that of which I speak!

    Have a great Friday, Trav! I'll have to try to play along with this new meme of yours some Friday as I do love my music!

    Very cool. I haven't been doing any type of weekly memes for awhile but I might have to start back with this one.

    Great choices. I love Buddy Holly! You don't get any better.

  1. Oh my.
    You've crossed over to the dark side of memes. I've corrupted you.


  1. P.S. A deep bow and a bar of chocolate will do just fine.

  1. 'A deep bow and a bar of chocolate will do just fine.' - LOL!

    Congrats on starting up your own meme! I'll see what I can drum up for next week.

    I enjoyed your set today - the delightful roguish delivery of the Big Bopper is irresistable.

    American Pie is one of THE greatest songs ever recorded

    Okay I'm in for Friday's. If you want to create a sign in Linky, you need to subscribe to Mr. Linky and set up a "five on Friday" meme. It's about $11.00 annually.

    It creates the code and you simply put that at the bottom of your post.

  1. Jamie says:

    Love the tribute to Buddy Holley. As you know my friend in Lubbock made a special pilgrimage to visit Holley with guitar picks as a thank you for the generosity of others.

  1. I just want you to know Trav I'm watching the Super bowl - the Who just finished half time... Remember when we talked to each other when the Giants played a couple of years ago and WON?

  1. Trav, I've created my playlist for tomorrow, Five on Friday Set 3. It will go up at 4:00 PM EST. Can't wait. Is it alright to have it go up late this afternoon? :)
