Friday Music Blog

Welcome back in to the Friday Music Blog at Chief 187 Chatter. Today marks the start of the Memorial Day Weekend and thus the unofficial start to summer. Music, the soundtrack of life, seems to be even more important during this season. As the weekends rev up each week, be sure to make a quick stop at this site to properly commence the summer weekends.

This week’s focus is songs that are patriotic. These songs can be traditional in nature, a “classic” from the early 1990s, or something that is simply patriotic in your opinion but may not be known widely. Be sure to list the artist who performs the song.

As it is Memorial Day Weekend, I request that you take a moment (or longer) to do something in honor of the brave men and women who have served our country and are no longer with us. From buying a poppy from a veteran to attending your town’s Memorial Day Parade, thanking a soldier to saying a prayer for the military family, it is important to remember and honor those who laid their life on the line in duty to our country.

Finally, it is with great pleasure and swollen pride that I announce the latest milestone at Chief 187 Chatter: yesterday the site had its 13,000th pageview! The distance from the 12,000th pageview was only a couple short weeks, the fastest the site has ever marked such a major accomplishment! I plan to continue to offer original content throughout the summer unlike the television shows whose season are now over and repeats have begun. Five days a week I will post new, original content and invite you all to read, comment, share, follow, and, most importantly, continue to come back. Thank you for your support!

I look forward to reading your responses to today’s topic of patriotic songs. I will be checking back often to read your selections and encourage you to do the same. Do not forget to utilize the search feature on the site to find recipes (Tantalizing Thursday), movie titles (Monday Movie Blog), music topics (Friday Music Blog), or Simple Joys to meander to remind you how wonderful life really is. Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you back here on Memorial Day Monday for an all-new Monday Movie Blog to start the week.

God Bless our military and God Bless America!

  2. I dunno'. Racer took my Lee Greenwood song. Bound to be sung *AGAIN* during pre-race ceremonies.

    Most country songs are patriotic, when they aren't singing about cheatin' wives. ;)
