Ten on Tuesday | An Atlanta Playlist.

Today, Carole's asked us to share songs "about where we live". What a fun excuse to make a playlist*!

I've lived in the Atlanta, Georgia area for over 35 years. Those first eight songs have been part of my playlist since college (well, except for Love Shack which didn't come out until 1989 when I was already married with a child :-) ... but "heading down the Atlanta highway" of course I had to include it).

The Ramblin' Wreck is Georgia Tech's fight song. I remember hearing that one as a kid. My dad was a Georgia Tech alum and that's probably the biggest reason I went there, too. (and then met Marc, and ...we made Atlanta our home).

I added those last two songs because they bring me back here. or when I'm here and missing folks who call (or used to call) this place home, make me smile (or sometimes cry, but almost always in a good way).

...and speaking of "making me smile", here's today's Charlie story:

me: let's go home and have lunch
Charlie: ketchup?


Fun as always, thank you, Carole! and if you're not already playing along with Ten on Tuesday, click here to join.

*and yeah, I'm still using Apple Music; I didn't find anything I liked better and I kind of know how to use it!

  1. The Georgia songs are great, and I really have to thank you for the last two. I haven't listened to Piano Man in ages (but am right now!) and Home is on my misty-eyed playlist. Hooray for ketchup, and I always used to tell my kids that everything tasted better with the Peter Rabbit silverware!

  5. I went to Georgia (Atlanta, specifically) for the first time for a library conference in my 40s. However, I knew the Ramblin' Wreck song since I was a kid, as my mother always sang it. She never visited Georgia, and had no connection to Georgia Tech. Go figure. :-)

    Ketchup for lunch ... I'm glad there was more!

  7. Ramblin' Wreck was definitely going to be on my list if I needed it. Sometimes home isn't always an address. Love it lunch=ketchup.
