Top Ten Thursday: Hot and Black

Well, I don't mind telling you it's been a rough couple of days.

I'm not going to bitch and moan about my early Christmas present (a severe head cold that has me going through life in slow motion these days). I'll just say that I needed a few extra cups of coffee to get me off of Square One this morning.

Which brings me to today's Top Ten Thursday category: Top 10 Songs About Coffee.

And lucky you, it's an audio Top 10! Here's the playlist:

  1. I cannot believe you put Otis above Ella on that list. I'll just chalk it up to your bad cold. ::shaking head:: Man! So, so wrong.

  2. I couldn't get the songs to play. Probably has something to do with this puny laptop, which is slow as molasses in January.

  3. Like the list. You and Bob Dylan share similar taste in coffee music. His Theme Time Radio Hour on coffee was one of his best.

    Too bad I'm reading this when it's tool late for a cup because now I want one.

    Also, do you know Squeeze's Black Coffee In Bed? That's a good one as well.

  4. Faith, I'm just surprised that a Prince song showed up on the list, and at #5 even.

  5. You forgot Garbage's "Cup of Coffee." Great breakup song.


Your turn to riff...
