C IS FOR CRY

For each letter of the A to Z, I'm going to give you a KEYWORD. You post in the comments a song with that word in the title. I will give you one to start (along with a video). If you like, you can go to YouTube and embed your video in the comments, so that readers can also listen to your song. No repeats and only post one song so that everyone can participate. If you're just brimming with songs, come back in a few days and lay it on me! If you want to see who else is participating in the A to Z click here.

 You guys did great with yesterday's word: Blue. Here are the songs you thought of with Blue in the title:

D.G. Hudson: Once in a Blue Moon by Van Morrison
CW: Blue Guitar by John Lodge and Justin Hayward
Alex J. Cavanaugh: Blue Monday by Orgy
Andrea: Blue Moon by The Marcels
Holli: Behind Blue Eyes Limp Bizkit and Blue Christmas by Elvis
Stephen T. McCarthy: Big Car Blues by Lightnin' Hopkins
and Blue Sunday by The Doors
triggering me to post Babysitting Blues from the movie Adventures in Babysitting
Diane Wolfe: Midnight Blue by ELO
Debbie the Doglady: Mamy Blue by Los Pop Tops
Birgit: Blue Skies by lots of artists!
ABFTS: Blue (Da Ba Dee) by Eiffel 65 and a promise of horrible 90s songs for future letters
Guilie: Behind Blue Eyes by The Who
John Holton: Blue on Blue, Bluer Than Blue, and My Blue Heaven
Marcy: Kind of Blue by Miles Davis
Blue Grumpster: Moody Blue by Elvis
Rosey: Am I Blue by George Strait, Forever in Blue Jeans, Babe by Neil Diamond
and Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On by Mel McDaniel
Jeffrey: Blue Bayou by Linda Rondstadt
Dixie: Love Is Blue by Paul Mauriot
Mike Spain: Blue Train by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant
Pinku-Sensei: Blue Monday by Orkestra Obselete

If you posted a Blue song and don't see it here, it came in after I called it a night. If you can think of more Angel or Blue songs and WANT to post them now, feel free to go back a post (or two) and add them:)

It's a new day and a new letter!

What is the KEYWORD?




You can use variations. In this case, cries, cried, and crying are also acceptable.

I present to you...Can't Cry Anymore by Sheryl Crow.
 



You can comment with a song using blue or blues or embed the video. Thanks for playing along!

    1. Snowy Monday morning? Ah, that's terrible. I live in Florida and it's SUNNY.

      So, I can see why you'd CRY BABY.

    2. Beat me to it! :) I'll look for another song now. We have snow too. Yuck!

  2. Does crying count? If so, "Crying Time." - Ray Charles

    I have a good one I could use by some blokes from Liverpool which actually includes the keyword TWICE in the title. But I'll leave that for someone else while I stick with the more obscure.

      I can see why she'd cry...;)

    2. Sia is strange, so the video fits.

    1. Funny, but this song has been in my head since last night when I reviewed this post.

      I recognized John Cryer from the video, but didn't recognize the movie. I had to click over to YouTube for more details. Says it was from a film called HIDING OUT. Have you seen it?

      Delete
    2. I have it. It was OK. I worked at a video store part time in college and i played it quite a bit in the store. The story is very exagerrated. Jon Cryer sells something for the mob (i dont remember) and then "hides" by playing a student in HS. I would go far away if i was hiding from the mob.

      Delete
    3. Well, dang. I guess I would, too. Of course, I think I'd listen to that little voice inside that had to be screaming, "Don't do it. This isn't going to work out well!" But that's just me. Obviously.

    1. I know you were trying to keep up the trend of lousy songs, but you forgot this ONE LITTLE THING. Or didn't know it. Either way, I fell just a little bit in love with Nick Carter during Dancing With The Stars last season. I mean who can resist this???

    5. Apparently I still can't embed an image. Have I mentioned how much I hate this thing when it doesn't work???? I would link like you did, but I don't know how to do that either. So, I'll just say this: that was funny. My image was hilarious, but you'll never see it...

  15. Lots of great songs. So what's the rules about a double song, but done by another person? I see Cry Me A River has been posted, but I would have selected Diana Krall's version. ;)
    You know me. LOL But just to be sure, I'll select another song.

  16. Let Her Cry by Hootie and the Blowfish. Love that song!

    Why can't I embed in your Comments?? This is the 2nd time I've tried (I tried with Angel last week). I see others are able to embed. I keep getting a tag that says "HTML Cannot be accepted". Crap!

    This is such a fun theme! I missed the letter B. :(

  19. Okay, Robin, I think I hate your theme. I keep getting lost in the comments and spending way too much time here. LOL. So now I'm crying because I'm listening to music instead of writing.
