Manic Monday #4 Challenge – Summertime Blues

For those that enjoy challenges, and if you like music… you might have some fun with this.  It’s called Manic Monday.  Welcome to the 4th installment!

Each Monday, I’ll present a new song title, and you come up with a post using it. Ping back to this post, so others can read! (if not wordpress user, provide link to your post in comments)  It can be fiction/non-fiction, poetry, subject can be dark, serious or humorous – however many characters you want- just have fun with it!  It doesn’t have to pertain to the song, whatsoever. (click here for past song titles)

The rules are…there are no Rules!  (except using the title of the song part)

We are working our way down through the decades, and we’re in the 50’s!  Eddie Cochran released “Summertime Blues,” in 1958.  He has been cited as the start of Rockabilly music with greats like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Johnny Cash.  Unfortunately, just as his career was taking off, Eddie died in a car crash and was only 21 years old. This song made Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 500 (came in at 74) of greatest songs of all time.   Wikepedia

Use that song title anywhere in your blog post, ping back this post! (visit others that posted, if you want) If you need more inspiration, you can Click here for lyrics

P.S.  Give me a few minutes to approve your PING to avoid spam.  Only comment with a link to your post (if not wordpress user) – minimizing comments ensures we can easily see all the posts.

    1. I love the innocence of the 50’s/60’s – but I also love the modern things like microwaves and cell phones are handy and all the cool tv/cable. Not to mention the advancement in medicine of women giving birth, etc. I wish we could have both of best worlds.
