Five on Friday Set 188

Posted: Friday, August 23, 2013 by Travis Cody in

Geez gang...this is the second week in a row that I've been late posting my Set.  But I do go back to work on Monday, so that should get me back in rhythm.

Today let us celebrate the Tommys and Bobbys of rock and roll.

Why, you ask?

Because, I say.

Oh...I realize that the track I chose from Bobby Darin doesn't fit the up tempo of the others in the Set.  It is, however, my favorite Bobby Darin vocal.  And...The Monkees tune was written by a Tommy and a Bobby (scroll down below the player for the details).
