5 on Friday - Set 162

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

When I was looking through the arts section of the paper yesterday after I finished eating supper, which is my chill out time between the day job and my evening writing shift, I noticed several event listings that featured World Storytelling Day.

What a great thing to showcase for 5 on Friday, I thought. So here are five story songs as we head into World Storytelling Day, March 20th.

1 - Rocky Raccoon - The Beatles 

2 - Famous Blue Raincoat - Leonard Cohen

3 - The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald - Gordon Lightfoot 

4 -Darlington County - Bruce Springsteen

5 - Taxi - Harry Chapin

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend--I'll be at my second Women Making Waves conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Storytelling through film, television and digital media, by women. It's not a women-only conference, however--it's a film industry event attended by both genders. In fact, my fellow conference-goer this year is my husband Brad.

I'll share the highlights in next week's Thursday Thirteen.
