Fish Face!!!

"How you doin'?"

"Yep. Ya caught me. I like to break a mental sweat, too."

It's time for another installment of "Theme Songs." This week's edition: Fishing! (for Tony, of course)
Can you think of songs that mention fishing anywhere in them? Here are our examples:

1. Summer Nights - Van Halen (Tony always tells me, when we hear this song, that it is the first song Sammy Hagar wrote with Van Halen)

2. Fishin in the Dark - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

3. Downeaster Alexa - Billy Joel

4. I'm Gonna Miss Her - Brad Paisley

5. Takin Care of Business - Bachman-Turner Overdrive

6 Fish On - Primus


Wow! This is a tough one! I feel as though you'll have an advantage in creating a fishing playlist if you like Country music. A bit more difficult if you don't. What's on your list?

"Fisherman's Blues" by The Waterboys... one of my favorite songs ever.

"Beach House on the Moon" by Jimmy Buffett. But I promise I'm not a Parrothead.

And I notice Charles is holding "Barnyard Dance". It's a fave around here too... who wouldn't want to stand with the donkey?

Okay, to add to the list,

"Bethlehem"--Paula Cole (there is reference to fishermen)

"And it Stoned Me"-Van Morrison

"Under the Sea"--The Little Mermaid

Not an easy one this week.

"Catfish John" by Alison Krauss

Otherwise, I'm at a total loss. "Fishin' In The Dark" leapt to mind, but you already named that of course.

I thought of two more playlists for you: songs with colors in the title, and songs with numbers in the title.

Wait a minute, how about "Joy To The World" by Three Dog Night? You know, "joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea..." Does that count?

I say it counts, Carol. Nice one.
