Five on Friday Set 146

Posted: Friday, November 02, 2012 by Travis Cody in

Blog Blast for Peace is just 2 days away.  Now would be a good time to do a Peace Five on Friday.

But I already did that for 2012 with Set 142.  I suppose I could do another Set with songs about peace.

How about coming at it in a different way?  For Set 146, I've decided to feature songs that make me feel peaceful, relaxed, and calm.  You won't find the word peace in the lyrics.  In fact, the lyrics may not be particularly peaceful, relaxed, or calm.

It's the music that I find soothing.

Please enjoy my peaceful tunes, and join us on Sunday for Blog Blast Day.

  1. Wonderful choices. This week the favorite is Drift Away ... One of my favorite "just take a vacation on the music" songs.

  1. I'm not sure if I've heard Ballerina before - I'll check it out once I get home from work.

    Happy Peace Week, Travis.
