This Is Me--2024 A to Z Theme

My A to Z Themes in the past have covered a range of topics and for 2024 the theme is a personal retrospective that I call "I Coulda Been" which is in reference to my job and career arc over my lifetime. I'll be looking at all sorts of occupations that I have done or could have done. Maybe you've done some of these too!

Weekly Song Challenge for Week 42

 Since I've done a lot of music posts on this blog I thought I'd join in on a music Challenge that's been going on for a while now.  Don't forget that you can still vote on my current Battle of the Bands as well...

      This ongoing Challenge comes from Mary at Jingle Jangle Jungle.   She provides the categories of the week.  Here's what we've got for this week:

October 20 - Week 42

A Song with a Girl’s Name in the Title

A Song with the word Under in the Title

A Song with Cry in the Title

And here are the songs I came up with coming from three artists that I enjoy...


Bruce Cockburn    "Peggy's Kitchen Wall"   (1984)

The Church   "Under the Milky Way"  (1988)

Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young   "You Don't Have to Cry"  (1970)

               What are some choices you might have made?   Have you voted on my Battle of the Bands yet? 


  1. For song choice #1, I have "Maria Elena" by The Smithereens.

    For song choice #2, I have a great cover of a moldy oldy "Under The Boardwalk" by John Mellencamp.

    For song choice #3, I have a blast from the past "Big Girls Don't Cry" by the Four Seasons.

  2. I already visited someone else playing this game so I will pick something new - Far Cry bu Rush.

  3. I knew Bruck Cockburn would be one of them! Nice choices!

  4. Lee,

    I didn't know either the first or third song picks but are a nice introductions!

  5. Welcome to the challenge! I am beginning to feel better so I am trying to read some blogs. Cathy also chose Under The Milky Way which is a great song and one I have not heard in quite the while. I like your picks because you often choose songs I have not heard but I always like, I do like Crosby, Stills & Nash. I never heard f the first song which is really good.

  6. Whole big comment, Blogger goes, Whoops, that's an error. I;'ll refrain from the language I want to use on them and try again. Your songs: Loved BC, been a long time since hearing Under the Milky Way, love 99% of CSNY. My attempt, using my M10 lists: Girl's name, the Trini Lopez version of Lalena; Had to cheat on "under", I do have one by Undercover dream Lovers, called Rewind; and "cry", I'll go with Smile Now, Cry Later by the Shacks.


Go ahead and say something. Don't be afraid to speak your mind.
