The Friday Five: More “Mind” Songs

On Monday, I chose five songs that had “mind” in the title and invited you to suggest others, promising I’d play the nominees if I got five of them. Well, I got three, and said, what the heck, close enough for government work, and chose two more. So here are five more songs with “mind” in the title, for your listening pleasure…

Friday on my Mind – The Easybeats A classic from 1966. Arlee Bird suggested this one.

You Were Always on My Mind – Willie Nelson Our friend Carol from church and Uncle Jack both suggested this one, and I can’t believe I didn’t think of it.

Mind Games – John Lennon One of my two contributions to the list, the title track from his 1973 album.

My Back Is Achin’ (And My Mind’s No Better) – The Good Rats Had never heard of this, but gave it a listen and liked it. Another Arlee Bird suggestion.

Too Much On My Mind – The Kinks I was looking for a fifth and turned up this one. This is from their Face To Face album, released in 1966.

I’m sure you can think of some more; if you do, leave me a comment and I’ll add it to the playlist.

If you haven’t already voted in my latest Battle of the Bands (Battle “Please Mr. Postman” pitting The Saturdays against a trio of young ladies from The New Mickey Mouse Club circa 1989), you have until whenever I get to posting the results, probably sometime Sunday, to let your voice be heard. Pay no attention to Grumpy Cat…

That’s the Friday Five for May 20, 2016.

  1. The Good Rats have been referred to as the greatest rock and roll band that no one’s ever heard of. They had a loyal cadre of fans over the decades with me included. This in one on those bands that was on the brink of making it big but never quite getting there. The opened for some big acts, but were mostly relegated to bar band status. Check out some of their music if you enjoy rock and roll. Not too much on YouTube, but most of their albums can be found on Amazon, the Rats’ own site, and other places. They are actually still together though with some personal changes especially with the passing of vocalist and band leader Peppi Marchello. Last I heard Peppi’s son had taken over his dad’s place.
