WWC : A & Favourite Song

Well, you can't give me the letter "A" and the phrase "Favourite Song" and not expect a bunch of pictures and songs relating to my province - Alberta!




"Alberta Bound" By Gordon Lightfoot - to listen to the song, click here.

Or for a different "Alberta Bound" by Paul Brandt click here.

And of course as "it's coming round the bend", I have to include "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash.













"Bye Bye Black Bird" - Miles Davis version ; Liza Minnelli version and about a million others.

"Blackbird" - Beatles











A-line roofs are necessary in the Rockies.
"When It's Springtime in the Rockies" sorry I couldn't find a good recording, but here are the lyrics (sis).








Andy's serves up "Java Jive" by the Manhattan Transfer here.











Alberta roses, our provincial flower.

and here is a song to go with - kind of bad though ;)










So, I hope all the links work and you all had fun. I don't have a favourite song, I have favourites as I'm listening to them, so I fudged and used songs that work.

If you would like to join the WWC, drop in and see our fabulous hostess Tink over at Pickled Beef. She will set you on the path.

Have a good day all.

Love the pics. I really like the way you positioned the A-line and the mountain. Very pleasing to the eye.
Well done again.

g-man said...

Many excellent shots, but I really like the first train shot very well done!! I'm glad that you were able to figure out a lot of songs, I could only come up with one. :/

You "rocked" it ;)

The pictures are amazing.

the Bag Lady said...

Great job, as usual, sis!

Love the train picture!

And gosh, who knew there were all those verses to that song? We can usually only remember one or two, and usually mix those up! :)

Ooh, Johnny Cash! I'll have to come back and listen to all of those wonderful songs -- I have to pick up meds for my little guy, dose him and then take him to school (poison oak, eye swollen shut this morning).
I love how you have so many pictures to go with those great songs. Like G-man, I only came up with one song. AND you gave me the Rockies, you wonderful person!! [insert contented sigh]

Reb said...

David, thanks. I'm honoured!

Leah, I am glad you liked it.

G-man, that was a total fluke, the track was empty a few minutes before.

A.K. thanks.

Sis, thanks. I was very surprised, did you print them out?

Kcinnova, thanks. I knew you would be pleased with the Rockies. Sorry to hear about the little guy's trouble.

The A-line roof shot is gorgeous!!!

fiwa said...

I am so impressed by how creative you guys are. When I saw the words last week I thought no one would be able to think up pictures around those.

Heehee... I do the same thing with songs by the way! We are kindered spirits. :)

Niki said...

Great job. All of those are beautiful!

Reb said...

Thanks Janet.

Fiwa, I cheated and looked at the photos I had, then matched songs.

Niki, thanks very much.

Tink said...

That third photo is beautiful! Well done this week. You tied it all in so nicely. :)

Reb said...

Thanks Tink. You can hardly get a bad photo of the Rockies though.

Jay said...

This was so cool this week. Lots and lots of really awesome tunes and pics.

You know what? I actually HAVE a photo that I took of Folsom Prison many years ago. I never even though of getting it out and using it. AHHHHHHH! hehe ;-)

Great job Reb!

Barbara Martin said...

Nice shot of the A-line roofs in the Rockies, and the train was perfect.

Reb said...

Thanks Jay. That is too bad you didn't think of using your photo.

Barbara, thanks.

You did such a cool job of these!! Wow.

I don't know how you do it, Reb. Your WWC posts are always unique. Wonderfully done.

Reb said...

Thanks FC. I listen to just about anything.

Thanks AJ.
