Five on Friday Set 155

Posted: Friday, January 04, 2013 by Travis Cody in

It's been an intense three weeks at work, but it's finally over.  Well, it's over for the next four days.  When I go back to work on Tuesday, I get to deal with a colleague's departure plus a change in our operating systems and a slew of other stuff.

But that's next week's problem.

For now, I'm crashing.  I have stuff to tell you but that's going to have to wait until I decompress a bit.

I did manage to find some good stuff for Set 155 and it all reminds me that pop music can be awesome.  And don't forget that next Friday we'll be celebrating three whole years of Five on Friday!

This Will Be, written by Chuck Jackson/Marvin Yancy, released by Natalie Cole in 1975

The Fool on the Hill, written by Paul McCartney/John Lennon, released by The Beatles in 1967

The Fool on the Hill, see above.  This is the cover released by Sergio Mendez & Brasil 66 in 1968, because I love this version.

I Can See Clearly Now, written by Johnny Nash, released in 1972

Proud Mary, written by John Fogerty, as performed by Tina Turner in 2009.  Keep in mind...that's a 70 year old woman at the end of a 2 hour set, getting her groove on with dancers a third of her age.


  1. Tina has the hardest working legs in show business! Love her! And I love just about everything John Fogerty! One of my favorite Pandora stations!

    Hope you pace yourself through the slew of work stuff.

    Have a wonderful 2013, Trav!

  1. Fool on the Hill, Sergio Mendes version! My favorite, too!

    And I know what you mean about Tina Turner. Crazy, man.

    Thanks for the heads up about next week - I'll put together something celebratory.

  1. I can see clearly now, and Proud Mary are both very nice tunes.

  1. Wonderful selections and Tina Turner is a miracle!! Take it easy and have a great 2013

  1. We will see you when you return from the break.Both the fools on the hill are my pick of this weeks tunes. I did a tribute to Patti Page who passed away this week.

    I love Johnny Nash and am so envious of Tina Turner's legs.
