You cheating scum

There are way too many country songs about cheating. I don't want to be predictable....too much anyway other than mixing up Jen's Mix. There are so many ways to cheat after all...

Don Henley's voice, his passion over what was going on in Wall Street way before it was on the network news, long before the 99 percenters. Sure it was about the 87 crash, however I think it is still appropriate today.

When some of us decided to back a race over the people, they cheated on the American Dream. Martin Luther King, JR gave us the voice of reason. U2 gave us the melody.

When the social elite decided to send other men's sons to war and kept their own safe and sound CCR called them out for the cheating scum they were.


I was a child in the 70's, but 9-5 showed that there was a way to break that glass ceiling and to break the cheating bosses!


  1. I like the way you didn't take the more obvious definition of cheating on a loved one. I absolutely love the Don Henley, U2 and CCR!

  2. Love the interpretation! Cheating takes place in many forms, well done, Kerry!

  3. Oh I love this interpretation, too. Good songs, too. :)

  4. Totally just brought me back with 9 to 5. God that was such a great movie and the song was just as good. Never thought about using this song for cheating, but does make perfect sense in the context you referred to!

  5. Hey we both kindof sortof cheated on the cheating theme! How awesome is that?? :)
    Saying "U2 gave us the melody" gave me goosebumps. I adore U2. And you, too. See what I did there?

  6. And now I love you more. I love where you took this mix. Member when you really didn't play and you used to tease me and say you would. And now you do and I am so happy you do. You are a ray of sunshine


Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!
