Five on Friday Set 177

Posted: Friday, June 07, 2013 by Travis Cody in

We've got a little anniversary coming up next Tuesday.  Pam and I have decided to go a little silly, a little sappy, and a little unconventional for our pre-anniversary Set.

It's crushes!  And not just any crushes.  It's our ultimate crushes from when we were kids.

Now you know my ultimate is Valerie Bertinelli, but she didn't sing.  So I've gone with one of my next best as an alternate.  Pam's ultimate crush needs no such alteration.  The problem there was choosing only 2 songs.

She couldn't choose 2, so she got 3, cause that's just the kind of guy I am.

Happy weekend gang!

  1. How can I not love the song about twilight time best? Love this set, Travis! Enjoyed listening to yours and Pam's crushes.

  1. Great set.mine will be up shortly.

  1. For a moment when I saw the phrase "Deep Purple," I thought you were talking about the hard rock band. My ears perked up. :)

    Happy anniversary!
    Watching "Yo-yo" I can't help thinking, "Who says Mormons can't be funky?" ;)

    I also wanted to mention to you that Valerie Bertinelli is scheduled to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson this Wednesday. They sometime switch things up, but as soon as I saw that I thought, "I've got to tell Travis about this."

    Have a good weekend!

  1. Totally forgot to watch the Yo-Yo video -- definitely loved that one! Groovy, baby. Osmond with blue belt wins the best dancer trophy.

    It's Five on Monday for me. I was on a day trip with the teen on Friday, but Osmond music is good on Mondays, too. Thanks for the tunes! GGG

    Oh my gosh, I remember when I was a kid I got to see Donny Osmand star in a production of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat. My cousin Martha thought he was a dreamboat. She mooned over him like crazy!!!Thanks for the throwback.
