Five on Friday Set 171

Posted: Friday, April 26, 2013 by Travis Cody in

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being stuck in the 1960s.  The music is excellent.  If I want to post a third straight week of 60s tunes for FoF, then I can.

I could, but I'm not gonna.

Instead I thought I would do a sort of progression.  I heard a great tune this week that didn't originate in the 1960s and I wanted to share it.  So I thought I'd start with that tune and then jump at 10 year intervals for the rest of my Set.

The songs are a little sappy, but I won't apologize for that.  Sappy works for me this week.

Have a great weekend gang!

  1. Sappy is always okay when you are in the mood. I simply time traveled to 1971 for a really good year.

  1. Actually had a moment to listen to your entire set first thing in the morning! (Can you tell it's my Friday off?) Loved the Rod Stewart and Foreigner tunes best this week.

    I'll catch up on last week's sets over the weekend.
