My Alphabet of Songs: H

We’re up to “H” songs now — click here for a recap of the songs so far.  I could have kept going, but…

  1. Hate On Me by Jill Scott – a newer favorite for me.  Love her pipes!
  2. Hot Rod Lincoln by Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen – just another song that’s fun to sing. My pappy said, ‘Son, you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’ If you don’t stop drivin’ that Hot. Rod. Lincoln.’
  3. Hotel California by The Eagles – You can check out any time you like,  but you can never leave.  This is a great live version – it may be from the Hell Freezes Over tour.
  4. Helplessly Hoping by Crosby, Stills & Nash – love the harmony and lyrics here.
  5. Here, There and Everywhere by The Beatles – I just think this is a beautiful song.
  6. Hey Nineteen by Steely Dan – Another good tune by Steely Dan. She thinks I’m crazy, but I’m just growin’ old.
  7. Hit the Road, Jack by Ray Charles – one of my faves of his.
  8. Happy Together by The Turtles – fun little ditty we can all sing together.
  9. Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder – Funk.  Even the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ version is funky.
  10. Hold on Loosely by .38 Special – another song I like to karaoke.
  11. Honeycomb by Jimmie Rodgers – We had this record growing up, too.  I like lots of songs on the album.
  12. How Deep is Your Love by the Bee Gees – Maybe because I was in full-throttle adolescence when Saturday Night Fever hit big, I don’t know, but I do love me some Bee Gees.

  1. Great choices here! I remember liking The Bee Gees without really knowing why (yes, I was that little). May have to listen to Honeycomb – not too familiar with it.

    1. Thanks, Tommia! Yeah, I’ve been a Bee Gees fan for a long time — they were the first group I ever saw in concert, thanks to an older sister. Good times.
      I’ve often thought I should link some of the more obscure songs, if not all of them, so people wouldn’t have to go looking for them if they’re interested in listening. I linked “Honeycomb” above for you. I will probably go back and link up the rest of them.
