  1. This is a fantastic idea (so clever!!!). I love it. It’s taken me a while, but I finally got mine posted.
    Foggy Mental Breakdown. That’s a fear of mine, too. Yikes.

  2. Loved your songs, This is so much fun. I’ve enjoyed reading all of the others so much, I’m posting my very own tomorrow. Thursday March 10. Wish I had seen this earlier, but then ‘you know me’. Seems to take me just about forever to get around the blogosphere.,

  3. DEBBIE ~
    This was a great idea! I saw where Lee did it and it looked like fun so I just now did it also. And it WAS fun! I used Tom Waits song titles. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Thanks for participating, Stephen. Glad you had fun with it! 🙂 I’ll check out your post and add your link to the list. Tom Waits has some interesting material.

    1. Hi, Suzy; The Beatles’ catalogue would be great for this! Why don’t you give it a shot? 🙂 No pressure, no time limit.
      Thanks for checking this out.

  4. Debbie, what a fun challenge! I loved all of your answers. Yeah, I may give this a whirl. Is this something you’re going to do on a weekly basis changing the questions or what? Am I to borrow these questions or do I make up my own as I go? Thanks for sharing the idea. Have a good weekend and I’ll see on Tuesday for March 1st BoTB! 😉

    1. Hi, Cathy; This is a one-time thing. I couldn’t keep up the pace of a weekly feature. 🙂 The idea is to use the questions shown and answer them with song titles from one favourite band or singer. Looking forward to your post!

    1. Got it! It’s set to go live tomorrow (Saturday) as I’m in the middle of something else just now. Thanks so much for sharing and allowing us to share this challenge! 🙂

      1. Well, on one man anyway. 😉 Yes, it’s been a long struggle, but I’m finally feeling much better.

        This is a fun exercise and I’d love it if you joined in, Yolanda! There’s no time limit.

    1. John Kay is one of my personal music heroes and IMO, an underrated musician. Most people have no idea how truly talented he is and only know about Steppenwolf’s top 40 hits. I love that album too. Another thing we have in common, Myke. 🙂 We saw Steppenwolf last June in Niagara Falls. John’s voice has held up well over the years!


  5. This is crazy cool! I’ll have to think about this one to see if I can I come up with answers. I don’t think I’m up to this particular challenge right now with everything going on here, but if I have some time, I’ll see if I can. Perfect that you were able to use your favorite band!

    1. Hi, Michele; I’ve had this in drafts for awhile and finally finished it. There’s no time limit, so I hope you’ll get the chance to have fun with it at a later date. 🙂

  6. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    “Gee Whittakers,” “April Love” is a long way off, so I’m back on your blog today – “Ain’t That a Shame”? “Don’t Forbid Me” because I intend to use “Friendly Persuasion” by writing “Love Letters in the Sand” “At My Front Door.” Call me “Tutti Fruitti” because “I Almost Lose My Mind” and my mental age is “Twixt Twelve and Twenty.” “If Dreams Came True” you’d be feeling much better by now. I hope you’re having “A Wonderful Time Up There” “With the Wind and the Rain in Your Hair.” How’s my day? “It’s Too Soon To Know.” I hope you’ll reply soon, “Long Tall Sally,” because “I’m Waiting Just For You.”

    This hop looks like fun and I enjoyed your life according to Steppenwolf. You recently saw my two part series on the Magnificent Men. In 2012, I ran a 9-part interview with another Central PA band, The Soul Clinic. Use this address to read the post in which the guys in The Clinic claim they eclipsed Steppenwolf at a 1968 show in New York:

    Hope you’re feeling better, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Shady, you are so clever! Great comment using all Pat Boone songs. 😀 Speaking as a Steppenwolf super-fan, I find it hard to believe that another band could “eclipse” them, but I will check out your post, regardless.

      The doctor checked my oxygen levels yesterday and they were back to normal, so I’m definitely on the road to a full recovery. Thanks for your care and concern.

      1. What a blessing that you are recovering, Debbie!

        Yessum, there is no proof (100 proof? 🙂 to back up the claims of The Soul Clinic, but that’s their story and they’re sticking with it. 🙂

  7. Very interesting meme with plenty of possibilities. It would require a lot of thought for me and I’ve been thinking of things so much lately that I have more thoughts than time to post them on my blog. But if I get moved to do this I’ll let you know. I’m tempted as I love stuff like this.
