Friday Music Blog-Memorial Day Edition

Welcome to the Friday Music Blog on Chief 187™Chatter.

It is Memorial Day Weekend and the stage is set for an incredible day of racing come Sunday.

The early part of the day begins with the Grand Prix from Monaco run by those technological beasts in the Formula 1 series.

Late morning into the early afternoon will be the Indianapolis 500, one of the most famous sporting events in the entire world.

And, finally, as afternoon wanes and evening appears the NASCAR drivers strap on their race cars for the longest race on the circuit, the Coca Cola 600 from Charlotte Motor Speedway.

My job on the Friday Music Blog is to offer a prompt connecting music with the NASCAR venue of the week.

This week’s focus will be divided once again.

First, list any and all of your favorite Queen songs as Charlotte is the Queen City.

Next, list any and all songs that have the word “World” in the title or lyric as the Coca Cola 600 used to be called the World 600.

Finally, feel free to add any songs that you feel are appropriately patriotic in honor of this being Memorial Day Weekend.

I’m off to donate money to buy a bouquet of poppies from a veteran and thank every service person for their duty to our great country. I will remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice and those who choose to defend and protect the United States of America now.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Have fun and be safe.

Please join me again on Monday for another week of all new, fresh, and original posts on Chief 187™Chatter.


  1. We are the Champions - Queen
    Ordinary World - Duran Duran
    God Bless the Mother - Charlie Daniels

  2. Since I've got a list of 60+ patriotic songs to post on my Groovy Reflections page for the weekend I'll refrain from listing any here but it's a mix of classic rock/pop, country, and traditional.
