Five on Friday Set 72

Posted: Friday, June 10, 2011 by Travis Cody in

Before we get to our Set this week, I want to tell you that our SYTYCD Top 20 was announced last night.  We wanted to enjoy the show and the performances, so I didn't recap it while we watched last night.  We recorded the show and I'll introduce our dancers to you on Monday.


I can tell you that this is a stunningly talented group.  Watching them perform in their own styles was a joy and a delight. 

My history essays this week described an event from 1944 and one from 1968.  Since Set 71 last week was music from 1942, I think we'll take songs from 1968 for Set 72.

Music was all over the place in 1968, kind of reflecting the attitudes and mood of the times.

    The SYTYCD show was stunning last night. Some of the judges not so much. I can take only so much emotive excess. Still it will be worth watching for the level of dance performance from these young talents.

    Now on to the music. I don't know how many decades since I've heard Turn Around Look At Me, but you reminded me how much I loved the song when it was popular.

    I love Dock of the Bay. Now that I live in a city on a bay, that song is even more special to me.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend Travis!

  1. I'm liking your summer of history sets, Travis.

    The Stones are my favorite this week, but your whole sets grooves, baby.

  1. Jumpin Jack Flash reminds me of going to the State Fair when I was a kid. Yeah I'm old!

  1. Enjoyed the show last night and there are some I am already leaning toward. The young lady with the short hair is special

    This is a most excellent set of music

  1. Sitting on the dock of the bay is a nice lazy afternoon song. Like that one a lot.

  1. A great set my friend. I still can not get playlist to publish to my blogs.So I went the You Tube route,with The Moody Blues.

    I was ten when Jumping Jack Flash came out?? Wow, I always thought that I was older than not - now I almost feel young!

    I'm posting late tonight (been a busy day) but I still managed to sneak my FOF in on time!

    Hey Trav! The first tune is a great theme song for Retirement Internship!!! "Sitting on the dock of the bay, wasting time . . ." Yup. Now I gotta go find me a dock - on a bay - and waste me some time!

    It only just hit me that I can no longer even listen to the tracks other people have posted on Playlist. Can I cry foul?
