Five on Friday Set 154

Posted: Friday, December 28, 2012 by Travis Cody in

It's the last FoF of 2012.  Last year I got caught by surprise and just threw down a Set of randomness.

Well, I prepared for the last Set of 2012.  Set 154 is still random, but I purposely caught my tunes this week.

Or something like that.

Be safe and sane in your new year celebrations, and watch out for amateurs.


Give Me One Reason, written by Tracy Chapman, released in 1996

Wild Night, written by Van Morrison, released in 1971

Tempted, written by Glenn Tilbrook/Chris Difford, originally released by Squeeze in 1981.  This version is from 1994 for the film Reality Bites.

Rhythm of Love, written by Tim Lopez, released by Plain White T's in 2010

I'll Be, written by Edwin McCain, released in 1998

    Every time I hear something by Squeeze I have to laugh as many, many years ago I went to see them in concert in a small venue in Philadelphia where they were playing with The Tubes, a rather interesting rock band from San Francisco that was fronted by a guy named Fee Waybill (you may remember them from "She's A Beauty" which they released in 1983 and was quite popular on MTV).

    Anyhow, the billing on the marquee at the theater read:

    The Tubes

    Of course it cracked me up and still does this to this day!

    Best wishes for the happiest of New Year's Eves with a totally amazing year to follow!

  1. I've always loved that Tracy Chapman song. Always. I love singing it, too. Really shows off my lower range. :)
