Friday Fiver: The One Where I Can’t Count, but Add a Giveaway.

Yeah, so today’s Friday Fiver is a Sixer…because I like to keep y’all on your toes. AND, just to keep things fresh and lively, we’ll throw in a lil’ challenge along with!

Here’s the scoop:

Listen to these tracks and respond in the comments with your “reviews”. (Per usual.) BUT, this time…first one to guess which of these songs belongs to an artist who’s known as “the Springsteen of Missisippi”, there’s a CD in it for you. As usual, I’ll post the “Answers” in the Saturday Scoop tomorrow.

Enjoy, and don’t be shy! Tell me what you think!

    Crap! I know I just read that description in the past week! Now where did I read it? Online? in Rolling Stone? I wish I had a photographic memory like my Pop did….

    time to go have a little listen and maybe it will jog the old brain cells

      I just found this site when doing some research about paypal because I was thinking about signing up and using them for a taking payments on my website that I launch next month but now I am seriously rethinking this. I had no idea tha t people had so many problems with paypal. As one of the most popular online payment systems in the world I thought that they had problems like this figured out. Bigger isn’t always better and that is coming from a man in Texas

    • Hi Amlan,It's great to start the day with your interesting piece!!!It would have been great had the Judge given her observation and not allowed the parties to go for arbitration. It would have set a judicial precedent. However, my take on the issue is if the defendant can prove the tattoo was originally designed by him, then there is an infringement. I'll not go to an extent as to where the design was used.Thanks!CheersGeeta

      O jogo de ontem foi uma autêntica "mierda". Defendemos mal e atacámos pior. Fiquei com a ideia que se o Barça apertasse mais um bocado… Fiquei com o estômago embrulhado por ver o meu Benfica a ser subjugado daquela maneira. Bem sei que era o Barça, mas porra, estavámos a jogar em casa. Esperava um pouco mais, principalmente de alguns jogadores, os mais evoluídos.

      This last weekend I introduced four people to basic wood procesing using the sawvivour, Sven saw, RTAK-2 and RAT 7. The wood processed was dead rhododendron and it is a fairly hard wood. The Sawvivour was the prefered saw and the prefered knife was the RTAK-2. Sven work well and the RAT 7 worked well too. The Sven “felt” more sturdy, but the Sawvivor cut faster. Both were the 15 inch blade. Neither had any failures and both were lubricated with WD40.

      Tout à fait d’accord avec Sebounet et je vous dirais même plus le basket est le deuxième sport collectif national et son exposition sur les chaînes France 2 et France 3 depuis les années 2000 y est presque néante. De plus si vous parlez en terme d’audience, croyez vous réellement que le divertissement avec le mentalite et le téléfilm la part des anges vont avoir plus d’audience que si vous retransmettriez la finale !

    #1 Totally love the “bones” at the beginning wish there was more of it… You can’t go wrong with La La Las imho Dig This
    #2 I liked this one just fine. It makes me think of a character singing in a rock opera though… like he’s delivering lines or something a la JCSS *shrugs* *squishyface*
    #3 It’s just a’ight little too Dixie Chick-ish
    #4 Love this. Got it on an NPR download from SXSW this year
    #5 Oh yes, Springsteen of Mississippi (only I like this waaaay better than anything by the Boss)
    #6 A big Fat NOPE couldn’t listen all the way through

    I love #1. But I am very biased here and it isn’t fair. And I can’t wait for the reveal and for you all to embrace this band.

    #2 and #3 – i listened, but had work to do while I listened. And neither of them made me stop doing my work. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I enjoyed listening to them but there was no “hook”, so to speak.

    #4 LOVE it. Cannot wait to hear more….unless I already have :/

    #5 reminds me of She and Him. Which is not bad either.

    Honestly, I like all kinds of music, but we need to get some harder rock in here.
    Can’t use the tagline “Rocking required” and not rock out weekly. IMHO 😉

        I precisely desired to thank you very much yet again. I’m not certain the things I might have worked on without the actual tips and hints contributed by you relating to such question. It seemed to be an absolute fearsome issue in my circumstances, but encountering this expert strategy you dealt with that made me to cry over fulfillment. I am just happier for the service and then have high hopes you are aware of a powerful job you were getting into training most people using a blog. Probably you’ve never got to know all of us.

    1. Dude. I flove this song. Layered, nice voice, love the lyrics that rhyme but not in a precious way. This is a ‘story of my damn life’ kind of song. I give it 5 of 5 stars. Plus an extra star for general awesomeness.

    2. Very Simon & Garfunkel to me. Okay but not memorable. Annoying use of metaphor in places. 2 of 5 stars.

    3. Hmm. I didn’t really want to like this but I do. “I can’t remember what I came to forget, so I must be doing something right” may be my favorite lyric of right now. It’s country-sounding but not country-sounding enough, kind of stalls out in adult contemporary/soft rock and that I find annoying. 3 of 5 stars.

    4. I like the parts. The singer’s voice is great but the falsetto is grating. Too much rhythmic piano but love the piano when it supports the bass. And I’m all over a gritty guitar. 4 of 5 for me.

    5. Good, bluesy sound. Good lyrics. 4 of 5.

    6. Yeah? No. 0 of 5.

    I’m with Ash; bring on the rock!

      I have made these for years. A family favorite. When the potato noodle is done and drained, I add cottage cheese and cheddar cheese and BROWNED butter. The browned butter is a must and the dish is then served with making wells in each serving and topped with more browned butter. The browned butter is the key to fantastic flavor.

    1. Is very Squirrel Nut Zippers -ish. And really only one band can pull that off. Thankfully!
    2. Is a bit coffee house depressing
    3. I’m diggin
    4. “In reverse..” and “hearse” that’s a bit Seussy for me
    5. Lovin’ the funk vibes on the base on the lead in.. EVEN better the Muddy Waters vocals! WHERE CAN I GET THIS?!!!!!
    6. Is sort Patsy Cline falsetto.. it might grow on me.
    Finally thanks be to Ash for inspiring that tasty classic nugget of gospel meets rock.. LORD it’s oh so GUUUD!

    1. I guess I’ll jump on that bandwagon….listened about 4 times before going on to #2. Good stuff.
    2. OK….a bit movie theme for me but pleasant.
    3. Kinda like this one…..
    4. LOVE the beat.
    5. LOVE this–though it makes feel like I should be in a dark smoky bar sucking down something harder than Diet Dr. Pepper while listening….
    6. Yeah, not so much.
    7. A favorite!!
