Taking my first meme challenge from Notoriously Nice Mike.

My Five Songs:

Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty. Backing out of my mom's driveway, on the way to Folly Beach on a hot summer day.

We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions by Queen. Stomping bleachers in the gymnasium of Middleton High School with the entire school body after the basketball team won the state championship.

Under the Boardwalk by The Drifters. Trying to learn to shag in the sand under the old Folly Pier.

Addicted to Love by Robert Palmer. Leaving the house at o'dark thirty after a phone call from my once again arrested for drunk driving (now ex) husband, the pure irony of the song title in relation to my task at hand cut right through all my excuses and denial and left me unable to continue my part in our little dance of dysfunction.

I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor. Disco dancing with some dude at the 'Henge (Stonehenge at Rivers and Aviation - anyone old enough to remember that?) when the summer sausage he had taped to his leg worked loose and slid down his pants out on to the dance floor, nearly causing a riot and left me laughing so hard I nearly wet myself. Ah...the seventies. Good times.

LOL I had to read that twice to make sure I read the sausage part right! You must have had a lot of fun that night! (I mean laughing and all)
