  1. Thursday Thirteen has come to an end.
    I have enjoyed my visits here and consider us friends.
    Thank you for sharing your thirteens with me.
    The comments you left me filled me with glee.
    It is hard to believe it is really true.
    I am trying very hard to not be blue.
    Happy TT’ing!

  2. Great list of good (sad) music for the last TT. Thanks for sharing.

    Bonnie Rait is so perfect. I really like “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and especially “Nick of Time”. I’d marry her if she weren’t so liberal.

    I am really sad to see the Thursday thirteen go away. Anyway I go out with a nice round number. My Thusday 13 #30 is up. It is ironically 13 Thursday Thirteen logos I made and used during the last 30 weeks. Stop by if you get a chance.

  4. I see that you too are a country lover. Wonderful list of songs. Haven’t heard from you in a while. I hope that you’re doing ok?

  5. Thank you for stopping by and your comment on my blog.
    Good TT here, and appropriate. I just posted my first TT last week and now it’s ending, so I’m pretty bummed.
    Well, just wanted to say you have a great site here, happy Thursday, and take care! 🙂

  6. Love Dan Fogleberg and James Taylor. Lots of fond memories of those songs.

  7. Kimo & Sabi

    What about, “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” by Dr. Elmo? That makes us furry sad.

  8. I took the day off TT today, I didn’t know it was the last one 🙁
    beautiful sad songs! James Taylor and Dan Fogelberg *sigh*

  9. Write From Karen

    Okay Janie, you MUST tell me where you got that uber-cool iPod plug-in?? Seriously, I love that.

    And GREAT songs. I agree, a fitting end to a fun blog GAME.

    C’est La Vie


  10. Good list. 🙂 The songs that make me sniffle are the sappy love songs of old rock groups like Firehouse.

  11. I like your list too…and some of those are sad songs to me too. However, my Rascal Flatts song that would go on that list is What Hurts The Most.

    Thanks for stopping by…and Happy TT!

  12. What a cool plug in- my son wants to know where and how?

    I love sad songs, I was on itunes last night just poking around and if you really want some tear jerkers, go to the imixes and look up the mixes made in memory of….yep, was crying last night.
    I will have to come back tomorrow when it is quieter to listen to your songs.

    great list – and musical accompaniment! i love “Even Now”.

    happy thursday!

  14. Irish Church Lady :)

    “The Song Remembers When” and “Photographs and Memories” are the two that immediately come to my recognition. That’s a pretty cool IPOD player you have going on the side there.

    Can I add “Don’t Let Him Steal Your Heart Away” by Phil Collins?

    Thanks for visiting me FINAL TT.

    Great list. I love Jim Croce and have Photographs and Memories on a cd. Thanks for visiting my TT. I’m sorry to see it go away.

  16. I love the ipod thing! That’s amazing. (technologically perhaps too advanced for me, the internet connection and Norton to cope with though).

    Interesting Friday Feast too – I’m afraid I am not religious at all but have always found the topic of interest. My sister also feels this way, having studied theology at university… again not religious herself. I’m glad you feel happier now that you have decided to make your own way with it.

  17. hmm …i know very few of these songs. thanks for stopping by my TT!
