Five on Friday Set 111

Posted: Friday, March 09, 2012 by Travis Cody in
9's the Totient Set!

For those of you who don't know what I mean by that, scroll down to my totient meme.

Alas, my Set this week is not totient themed.  Rather, Set 111 is inspired by the group Simple Minds.  I happened to hear them on the radio the other day when I went to get my breakfast sammich, and I thought we might journey back to 1985 for our tunes. 


Alive and Kicking, written by Jim Kerr/Charlie Burchill/Mick MacNeil, released by Simple Minds

Crazy for You, written by John Bettis/Jon Lind, released by Madonna

Head Over Heels, written by Roland Orzabal/Curt Smith, released by Tears For Fears

Would I Lie to You, written by Annie Lennox/David Stewart, released by The Eurythmics

    Great set and songs that I all remember quite fondly from that particular year. Funny how it's easy to remember 1985 so much easier than it is for me to remember 1995 which I have no recollection of at all!

    Thanks for forcing me to look up the Wiki on Totient Numbers Sheesh!!

    Thank goodness I had the music to sooth my poor befuddled brain.

  1. Sublime! This is all Me Music - the joy of my adult life starting at last in my mid-20's when I moved to Toronto. All of these tunes make me happy!

  1. Hummm, I don't think you had me in mind when you constructed this list. :)

  1. I have a love/hate relationship with the music of the 80's.. In some ways I see it as a dark time and then there are beams of light . This set is well done indeed.

    What a WONDERFUL set!!! Each of these brought back such good memories. And also, thank you for reminding me it's Friday. That means that after today I don't have to be home along for the rest of my recover. Yay! :)
