I am planning on grilling up some sausage tomorrow, if the rain lets up and if not I can cook them inside.  I usually have sausage for breakfast on weekends to go with my eggs and toast, but I am talking about dinner sausage with fried peppers and roasted potatoes and of course no onions.  I am not talking about having a sausage party where an anthropomorphic, sexually repressed food item longs to escape the confines of the supermarket that they are kept in, to discover what live is like when they are not confined to the shelf.  I have no clue about why Brexit has anything to do with British meats going to Northern Ireland, but everything seems to be getting more and more complicated, and some type of deadline is looming.  Who can resist the smell of a sausage on the grill and since you can’t spell the word sausage without writing USA, it doesn’t get any more American than this!

Last week we had Time To Eat, with the theme of Breakfast, Brunch, Dinner, Lunch, Snack, Supper suggested by Paula Light of Light Motifs II.  This week it is a holiday weekend for us folk over here in America and there will be fireworks and I heard that the gas stations are running low of gas, because a lot of people are filling up their tanks preparing for a getaway.  Our theme this week is American music, which is any song played by an American group, so even though ‘American Woman’ sounds like a song you might select, the Guess Who are a Canadian band, so try to find something else and there should be a lot of choices.  Take some time to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this music challenge, and even better, read as many of them as you are able to as you will probably find many enjoyable songs and it is quite possibly that you will learn a thing or two.  Share your music with others and post a video, try do some research and let everyone know something about the song that you post.  Tell everyone why you like the song, whether it was a hit, or what you think the song is about.  Show the lyrics, let’s all listen to our favorite songs and explore some new music.  Try to find a song that fits the prompt, then write your post and create a pingback, or you can just place your link in the comments section.

Here are the “rules”:
• Try to use the prompt words or at least conform to a general theme, as you see it.  If the song you select does not meet the criteria, then please explain why you chose this song.
• It would be good if you could post the lyrics to the song of your choice, as this is helpful for the people that want to follow along with the music.
• Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due. It would also be a good idea to give credit to the singer and the band associated with your song.
• Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be, but please try not to include too many videos as that just makes it take longer to look at all of the other posts.
• Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
• Ping back to this post or place your link in the comments section below.
• Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
• Feel free to suggest future prompts.
• Have fun and enjoy the music.

I am writing about the song ‘American Girl’ by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.  Next week, I will be writing about the Jerry Garcia & David Grisman song ‘There Ain’t No Bugs On Me’.  The upcoming prompts will be:
July 11, 2021 – Bugs, Insects suggested by Amy Braun, ☆ai love music☆ aisasami

July 25, 2021 – Automobile, Car, Jalopy, Vehicle suggested by Melanie B Cee of sparksfromacombustiblemind

  1. My wife is named Susan, so like your sausage, she celebrates America right in the center of her name. I loved this prompt so I got an early start. For the first time ever, I finished a blog post and left it in my drafts over night.

      1. Thank you ☺️
        How strange my site is blocked. It’s just a WordPress site and it has been online for a long time. Can’t think of why that would happen 😕

      2. I live in Saudi Arabia, it’s likely that it screens the theme of the site and filters it for some extreme reasons… I can reach your site thru my phone though since I have VPN

      3. Ah yes, I can imagine Saudi Arabia wouldn’t be too thrilled with my content. I’m glad you can circumvent it with your VPN 🙂

  2. It’s not easy to find good quality videos of The Runaways live but at least the sound is great on this one.

    Clean rock n roll
    Makes the midnight flow tonight now
    It’s hot tonight
    Come on let’s have a good time
    In the dark of the night
    We hunt for fun
    Chasing after the moonlight
    Hiding from the sun

    American nights
    You kids are so strange
    American nights
    You’re never gonna change

    Our magic is young
    Cause we just begun
    We light up the sky
    Always on the run
    We live in the streets
    In the alleys of screams
    Cause we’re the queens of noise
    The answer to your dreams

    American nights
    You kids are so strange
    American nights
    You’re never gonna change
    Hey boy you’re my good time
    Dance close ya feel so fine
    Hold tight we’re on fire
    All night you’re my desire

    Wanna party
    Wanna party

    American nights
    You kids are so strange
    American nights
    You’re never gonna change
