OSF: Don’t Box Me In

Filed under: Old School Friday, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — pprscribe @ 4:25 pm

I am still getting caught up on all my Old School Friday colleagues’ posts from last week and here it is Friday again. So, I’ll make this a quick one. The theme is “Out of My Box“—our opportunity to post songs that are outside of our comfort zone. I am not sure I really have a comfort zone, as I’ll try any music at least once.

My playlist features a country and western legend—Johnny Cash. One time when we were traveling by car we stopped off at a Cracker Barrel and picked up Johnny Cash’s greatest hits as a gag gift for someone. We ended up playing the CD in the car and loving it. We had to buy a different gift.

Also featured are a couple of versions of Prince songs by people I might otherwise have never listened to. Not only am I a huge Prince fan, but I am fascinated by cover versions so these tunes fit both bills.

So, listen—enjoy! And happy Old School Friday!


  1. Ahh, Johnny Cash…one of the greats.

    I never did see that movie about him…I think I’ll add it to my Netflix queue…

  3. Thanks, Marvalus and Regina! I want to see the Johnny Cash movie, too. Actually, that is one of the things I like about his music even tho I am not a big C&W fan—he had such an interesting bio.
