Lol it's been ages since I last heard this song! Thanks!
Good morning LoveTheBadGuy! "Blue" by Eiffel 65 was actually on my original list. Mood-wise I didn't feel it fit with other songs. "True Blue" by Madonna missed the cut for the same reason. Maybe I should make a blue dance track–that might be fun!
I couldn't get the videos to load, but I'm sure it's on my end Terri.
I had a lot of trouble with mine. Something is just missing. I would appreciate suggestions on this one if anyone's got the time. :0)
Sorry to hear that, Donna! The links all lead to the YouTube videos if anything catches your eye!
Oh, Eddie Vedder is Divine! This post has made the perfect morning! I have sat with my coffee, reveling in the beautiful music. Loved your take on today's prompt!
Here is my Day 25
I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Melina! Music has such power, don't you think?
What a cool and creative way to showcase Blue. Love it! Unfortunately I haven't got time to watch them all now as I'm getting ready to go to a wedding. I'll catch up later!
Here's my post for today: http://wp.me/p1UhOl-ar
Happy weekend everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful time, Carlie! Weddings are such lovely events!
Thank you, Terri. It was a lovely wedding with some very unusual centre pieces for the tables at the reception. The flower designs were very unusual too.
I must admit I really struggled to keep going through the whole event, but as my daughter was having such a great time, dancing and socialising, I couldn't deny her that enjoyment no matter what the cost to me. I've paid a hefty price for it, but it was worth it to see her so vibrant and alive when she does so much to look after me.
I love Blue on Black and I haven't heard it in such a long time! I took some time off but here's my post for today: http://www.livinglearninglovinglife.com/2012/08/b…
What a great collection of 'blues'. Some I've not heard before x.
What a fantastically creative way to explore blue! I love it and wish I had thought of it. I have to admit that I don't know a good many of the songs but know a few obvious ones and the omitted Maddona one. Also there's an English pop group called Blue; not that it would fit in here but thougt you'd like to know. xxx
Here's my effort for Blue. xx
Some interesting songs there, I liked Madonna's 'True Blue' too…
Here's my episode…see if they're blue…
Oh, I love the list of blue songs. They make me smile….Tangled Up in Blue is one I remember so much from my older brothers, I can still hear it in my head.
Love the blue leaves, too….
What a creative way to do today's post!
Here's my day 25: http://christinakrieger.com/2012/08/25/blogflash-…
I love this list of blues! Makes for a wonderful weekend playlist!! :)
My link for the day is here: http://www.sweetbananaink.com/2012/08/25/blog-fla…
Very fun! Love the blue music :-)

Terri, cool list, I was thinking of sharing some songs with "Blue" starting with the Limp Bizkit version of Behind blue eyes but then something was more important: https://word2live.wordpress.com/2012/08/25/day-25… :)))
Looks like I've got some music to get cracking on! thank you for that, Terri :)
Hope you enjoy today's entry. It should tie in with the soon to come ending!
[…] Other contributions for Day 25 are here. […]
LOL!! Sounds of Blue – love it!!
There is so much more to this, but I wanted to keep it close to the 100 word goal. Some of the descriptions are rough, over simplified, and trite. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Short one tonight.
We could play this game all day, but no room for Neil Diamond's "Forever in Blue Jeans" or Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues"? But you got "Tangled Up in Blue", which was my first thought.
And of course the blues in general.
What better reason than the apocalypse to sing the blues?
A bit late, but:
Wonderful take on the prompt Terri :)
and sorry I'm a bit late
Thanks for the smile. Here's mine http://jemcogdell.blogspot.com/2012/08/weekend-ge…

Thank you so much, Lisa! What a great turn of events for them!
