Thursday Thirteen

Songs for the times . . . in my mind anyway . . .

1. I'll Stand By You, The Pretenders (even if you are not my friend or family, I will defend you. Can you say the same? I don't feel it.)

2. The Winner Takes It All, Abba (guess you know where this one belongs. Phhtttt.)

3. 99 Luft Balloons (99 Red Balloons), Nena (nuclear holocaust)

4. 1999, Prince (don't we wish - what would we have done differently?)

5. Bad Moon Rising, Credence Clearwater Revival (I see earthquakes and lightning. I know the end is coming soon.)

6. One of the Living, Tina Turner

7. We Don't Need Another Hero, Tina Turner (The last generation, the ones they left behind.)

8. Another Brick in the Wall, Pink Floyd ('cause "we don't need no education," now do we? We need it more than ever.)

9. Where Have All the Flowers Gone? Peter, Paul & Mary (When will we ever learn?)

10. Strange Fruit, Billie Holiday (shouldn't even be an issue . . . but it obviously is)

11. War!, Edwin Starr (what is it good for?)

12. American Woman, The Guess Who (Pull together, ladies. Let's kick some A$$ in the next few years.)

13. I Am Woman, Helen Reddy (Still here, we ain't stayin' down, damn it.)


Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 473rd time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday. 


  1. I often find myself singing "What's it all about, Alfie?'

  2. I keep thinking they will announce it was all a hoax. Or that the election was rigged or something. This can't be happening.

  3. 11. Absolutely Nothing, Say it again! I was going to put up Credence on Monday. But you said it first and best! Great choices and a perfect list for these times. You Rocked it!

  4. What Alice said. Great selection of song titles. I was listening to my YouTube feed this afternoon when "Show Me the Way" by Styx came on. Talk about appropriate! My T13
