I have no theme for Set 17.  It's just five pop songs from classic radio that I really like.

Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again was released in 1971 and reached #15 on US charts.

Everybody Loves a Clown was released in 1965 and reached #4.

Kind of a Drag was a #1 hit in 1967.

This Girl is a Woman Now was released in 1969 and reached #9.

You've Made Me So Very Happy was released in 1969 and reached #2.

    In case you haven't heard, looks like Valerie just got engaged!!

  1. Jamie says:

    Any playlist that features BST is a good one and "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling" is one of my favorite bubble gum songs ... Sometimes you gotta bounce.

    I went with with one of my favorite song writer/chanteuse: Amanda McBroom

  1. BST adds life to any set and this one didn't even need it! Nice...I am also in the 60's for the most part with The Band...and I stretched the guidelines and actually posted 7 songs

  1. Linda says:

    "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again" is a favorite of mine! Like Jamie said, sometimes you just gotta bounce and even though that's supposed to be a song about something sad and depressing it just doesn't leave you that way!

    I took a trip back to the early 1980's this week with a guy that I almost forgot I had a crush on back in the day!

  1. What a great set - it may seem random, but when you listen to it, the songs all have a similar vibe. You Make Me So Very Happy is my Top Pick! (Insider wink-wink - that's what Romantic Times magazine gives to the 4 1/2 stars reviews for romance fiction, being that the reviews supposedly only go as high as 4 stars.) Blood, Sweat & Tears are a lifelong fave of mine.

    Also really enjoyed new-to-me This Girl is a Woman Now - really like his voice. My husband joined in singing Kind of a Drag - like that one, too, especially as it prompted Brad to sing!

    The Fortunes track is one of my favourite songs. :)

  1. I like best the Blood, Sweat and Tears song.

  1. you and I have one song in common on our playlists today.when I made up mine I had no idea what you set would be like.I glad we have the same taste in some of the music we enjoy.

  1. Marilyn says:

    I love every one of your songs this week.

  1. TopChamp says:

    I can't hear them! But Buckingham is my home town so I must google that band.

  1. Gads...don't THOSE titles date us. Bring back memories...

  1. Marsha: She did? I did not know that.

    Jamie: Ditto on the bouncing.

    V: Guidelines are for guidance only. LOL!

    Linda: I know what you mean. Isn't it funny how some songwriters put a sad theme to an uptempo melody?

    Julia: I thought so too. One song kind of led into another. It' started with Rainy Day Feeling and went from there.

    Akelamalu: I'm a fan of the Fortunes.

    Charles: BST rocks.

    Mike: So do I!

    Marilyn: Excellent.

    TC: I'm sorry you can't hear.

    Lana: Indeed!
