Friday Music Blog

Welcome in to Friday and the Friday Music Blog on Chief 187 Chatter. Offering original, fun, and mind-bending topics to lure you in and make you think about all of your favorite music, the Friday Music Blog is here to stay. It’s a terrific diversion!

This week’s focus, with a tip of the hat to spring, Easter, renewal, and the plethora of baby animals around, is songs with animals in the title. List any and all songs that have an animal mentioned in the title. Whether by species’ name or pet name, if a song is about an animal and denotes an animal in the title, include it on your list. I am so looking forward to all of the creative songs you all are bound to dig up for this topic!

This week I filed my eightieth (80th) blog of the year (2011), which is as many as I wrote in 2010 because I started in mid-September and wrote daily (minus weekends) through New Year’s Eve day. The winter, typically a time of inactivity and isolation, passed inordinately quickly and left me productive, invigorated, and networking like crazy! I couldn’t believe I’d matched the number of blogs as last year already, but realized we are nearly at the end of April with time flying at a record pace! I’ve been committed to putting out this blog faithfully, daily, and with strong, personal convictions, observations, and emotion. I reiterate that commitment and continue to honor it. I hope you will continue to join me on this wondrous journey that is LIFE and share laugher, Simple Joys, Tantalizing Thursdays, Monday Movie Blogs, and Friday Music Blogs alike. I’ll be here, won’t you keep returning?


  1. Hi Chief-
    The best, the one, the only "How Much Is That Doggie In The Window" (Patti Page). A little before your time, but the ultimate pet song (arf arf). Now a question for you- Why are there no pets on the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" album? "Wouldn't It Be Nice" to know? "I Know There's an Answer" maybe "God Only Knows" but "I'm Waiting For The Day." Time to hoist up the John B's sail and sign off....
    Any plans for a "greatest album ever" Friday Music blog?
