Greetings and salutations, music fans and welcome to “‘Something’ in Music”. Recently, your sometimes socially inept, shy, innocent white boy writer had an atypical conversation about marriage with some attractive, young ladies in a trendy, hip club. This led to a discussion of wedding traditions.
Specifically, when a gal gets married she’s supposed to wear “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”. That one comment (and a few cherry vodka and Cokes) was basically all it took to give birth to the idea behind this series here on Examiner.com.
Here we shall (ahem) examine various songs in four different categories: classic songs (“something old”, newer numbers (“something new”), cover cuts (“something borrowed”) and blues songs and/or songs with the word “blue” in the title (“something blue”). As always, readers are not only welcome to contribute to this new series but are actually encouraged if not expected to do so.
(View the list to see the newest batch of songs here.)
