This week for Friday 5 we had a special topic. It was all about Dads and Father’s Day. I tried to find songs about fathers like I had done for Mother’s Day but most of the songs were really depressing (like Papa was a Rolling Stone). This certainly didn’t capture my Dad at all. So I decided to do something different and I asked my Dad what his 5 favorite songs were and he gave me 6 great choices.
I think the songs show a lot about his personality and how much of a people person he is. They are also diverse and songs filled with empathy. I was a little surprised he went with a Fleetwood Mac song as I had no idea he was a fan of them. That’s what’s cool about the Friday 5 is I’m constantly learning new things about music. It’s neat because I think I know just about everything about my Dad or other relatives and then it turns out there is always more to learn.
So these are my Dad’s 6 favorite songs and they are all fantastic. I particularly love Have You Ever Seen the Rain by Credence Clear water Revival. With the horrible events that happened in Orlando I found myself listening to that song and finding some comfort in it.
Anyway, let me know what you think of these 6 songs and to all you Dads out there have a great weekend!
