Tennessee

Music Monday at Soccer Mom in Denial


I've been singing this song for weeks. Now I'm singing it in Tennessee.

As is my daughter. While sitting in my brother-in-law's house in Nashville she's been singing in a low voice "Tennessee, Tennessee... take me to another place..."

"Is she singing what I think she's singing?" he asked.

"Yup," I reply. "Arrested Development."



Are you making music today? Link below and be sure to link back to me in your post.

[I know some of you are complaining about my lack of attention. Between traveling, sick kids, sick me and work I haven't had much time to read and comment. I'll get back on the saddle one of these days.]

Hi - have just come across your site. I'm Scott from www.diyfather.com - we are an online interactive forum for fathers based in New Zealand.

I was wondering whether you might be interested in a link exchange or posting a monthly summary of father related issues from our blog.

Please reply to scott@diyfather.com

Thanks Scott

Funny... I heard that song on the radio yesterday.

I've been missing-in-action too lately. Hope you enjoy your time and I'm sure everyone will be pleased when you post as you can post. Never heard the song--it was something else. It will take a while to stop tapping my toes to the beat.

Happy trails, dear. Love today's post. This song was huge when I was in high school. I haven't heard it in ages!

Jenn in Holland said...

That Brillig is such a young 'un...

But, yeah, love this song and love the album and I was so NOT in high school when it was getting radio play.

Are you back yet? Because I might just be complaining about your absence. Deal with it, that's how I roll.
