Song Challenge-Day Five


And here we are…

On day five of the song challenge!

Today, I’m going for BROKE because this whole thing is just about to commence to dust.

Yes my loves, the sun is setting.

The witching hour is near…

But I’m not done having fun.


Now, before I proceed, let me take the time to thank Lisa A from Life of An El Paso Woman for tagging me with this challenge.

She is so awesome!

Thanks Lisa!

Love ya girl!

I’d also like to thank all of the bloggers who decided to participate!

Thanks guys!

Ok, back to the fun…

I thought I might leave you with a couple of  jams that I loved back in the day.

First, I must admit that I have always had a deep love of high drama!  It’s how I get my life!  YAAASSS!

To that end, I give you:

Putting on the Ritz By Taco.  The irony in that video kills me!

And….Mighty Real by Sylvester.

Oh how I wish I could’ve seen him live at Studio 54!!!!!!

RIP dear one! I love this doll!  Did you see him all dapper in his white suit–oh but wait…homeboy twirls around into utter fabulousness!


And here’s Boy George and Culture Club with I’ll Tumble for Ya!

Ok, let’s step away from the high drama and take a listen to a couple of my other high school Pop faves:

It’s a Mistake by “the men down under, ” Men at Work

And this GENT who belongs front and center with all of the drama dudes!

Eh… that’s ok he’s in a class all his own!

I give you, David Bowie and China Girl.  RIP sweet David:


Now as we wind down toward the close of the day, I give you a couple of compositions from “The Quiet Beatle.”

He’s my play-pretend guardian angel!

The Late Great George Harrison.

RIP Great one!

Here Comes the Sun:  I think this one is for karaoke 🙂

Billy Preston sings “My Sweet Lord” in tribute to my guy.

George’s son, Dhani, is also playing on this one.

He’s the guitarist that closely resembles our beloved!

Finally, one of my all time favorite George Harrison compositions:

By the way, R&B mega-star, Bobby Womack, did a helluva cover of “Something.”  Go google it!  It’s pretty damn awesome.

Well guys…as I implied before, everything must come to an end.

There are so many more pop/rock/disco-y jams that I wanted to include but there’s no point in running totally amok!

Please play along and do your own song challenge post!

Clearly, I have broken all the rules, especially with this entry… but such is life!

The Lady will now bow and take her leave by dancing off into the sunset to Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic by The Police.

Love and light to you all!

I had a ball!

Lady G

    That’s a whole one and a worth of half-selections Gwin.
    Police videos always seemed to have much action; Sylvester’s original definitely knocks away the UK’s Bronski Beat version.
    Thanks for the share.

  2. Great picks, Gwin! By any chance were you watching “The Wedding Singer?” I think some of these songs are on there! Thank you for accepting the challenge! I’m really glad you had fun with it! Lots of hugs and love! ❤ Happy Easter!

    1. LOL! I haven’t seen that movie in a hundred years but now that you mentioned it I do remember that they played a lot of the same jams that I selected.
      I think it was set in 1985 🙂 so that makes sense 🙂
      Lisa, thanks again and as always I send you much love and a big hug right back 🙂

    If you didn’t get the YouTube address with my brothers singing. Go to my blog I put it there so you can hear them. I read that you’re not into the Blues. I just want you to hear my brother’s voice.

    This is my two brothers singing blues Berkeley California. They do this every weekend. Blues is just a state of mind it’s it’s an expression of the heart.

    1. That’s so cool. You were lucky that your Dad exposed you to various styles.
      Honestly, there is only one genre that I don’t care much for and that’s blues- well I do like BB King 🙂 though.

  5. Wow!! I can see you ‘pulled out all the stops’ with this amazin’ collection! Have to say my fave of ’em all is George & “Something”… Makes me misty-eyed, that one.
    Nice work/play G!!! ❤
