Pony Girl said...

What about Bye Bye Miss American Pie? It was on your other list! ;)

CindyDianne said...

CHATTAHOOCHEE by Alan Jackson and Sittin on the Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding are the two that instantly come to mind!

Nice list - I just may have to use some of it!

Scrappy Girl said...

Love the list. Don't really understand how "Let's Get it On" is a cookout song. It would be on my other list...if you know what I mean! LOL!

hope4grace said...

Oh yeah baby! You completely rock and we have the same taste in music. So are you coming over to prepare my marinades while you're at it? Cause a girl needs some serious help over here, I haven't started and I'm already behind.

Working Mom said...

Glory Days by The Boss himself, Mr. Bruce Springsteen, is a MUST for me!
