Five On Friday - 5 Degrees Of Progression-2012

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, December 16, 2011

From Travis: This time around, I've suggested three possible avenues to take in building your Set. Ready?

  • This one is "easy". Just come up with whatever strikes your fancy.
  • Define 2011 with a progression that reflects how your year went.
  • Set the stage for what you expect in 2012.
If you'd like to join in, here are the guidelines:

1. Grab the banner, make your post title Five on Friday, and be sure to link back here.
2. Go to to make your Set of five songs. You may choose a particular theme to share with us, or post random tunes if that's your vibe for the day. You can simply post the Set, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.
2a. Don't feel restricted by the tracks listed on And don't be discouraged if the Embed code won't work. You're welcome to use any type of media to share your Sets.
3. Be sure to sign Mr Linky so everyone can visit your Set.
4. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.

Hummm...I have been thinking about this for a couple of weeks and could not decide which of the three Progressions I was going to use. The today I decided to go with the third choice - Set the stage for what you expect in 2012

So, here goes...



  1. In February, I am broadcasting from Beale Street for the International Blues Challenge. 5 days, 9 shows, 26 hours live and all become podcasts...I will be "Walking In Memphis"
  2. I go to work every day and feel under-appreciated by my firm.  I am on-site at a client's location and the client loves me.  My company, not so much...key line from the song; "And if your train’s on time, You can get to work by nine, And start your slaving job to get your pay" - Yup I am "Taking Care Of Business"
  3. Planning on taking Nancy to New York this summer. We had hoped to do it last year, but it did not work. So, this summer...I am real hopeful. So of course, "New York, New York"
  4. Music On The Couch is becoming more and more my passion.  Each Monday, I have two guests and hopefully, my questions give them "Something To Talk About"
  5. And finally, the year would not be complete with Nancy in my life - "My Girl"
