Special Saturday random (more than) ten: Olympics

Linkmeister throws down the gauntlet.

The Olympics motto is “Swifter, Higher, Stronger.” Here are songs from my iTunes library which have those words, synonyms, or root forms in their titles:

1. Don’t Come On Strong And Run – The Mollys
2. Stronger – Mieka Pauley
3. You’re Stronger Than Me – Patsy Cline
4. Back In The High Life Again – Steve Winwood
5. Bust The High School Students – Austin Lounge Lizards
6. First Time High – of Montreal
7. Gettin’ High – Asylum Street Spankers
8. Groovin’ High – Charlie Parker
9. I Want To Take You Higher – Ike & Tina Turner
10. Shoot High, Aim Low – Yes
11. The Tide Is High – Lager Rhythms
12. The Trees They Do Grow High – Gordian Knot
13. Fast As I Can – Great Big Sea
14. Fast Car – Tracy Chapman
15. Fast Freddy – Trinity University Jazz Band
16. Half Fast Jam – Enter The Haggis
17. Quick – Eddie From Ohio
18. Papa Come Quick – Bonnie Raitt

No swift songs, but I do have fast and quick ones. I have more high songs than this, but limited it to one per artist, and didn’t use songs with “Highway” or “Highland” or the like. So there you have it.
