Music A to Z: J

Welcome to this week's edition of my Music A to Z feature. Each week on Thursday, I am going to share a song where either the song or the artist name begins with the letter for that week. This week, the letter is....


Small Towns by John Cougar Mellencamp - I always wanted to include this person in my list as I went to see him in concert back in the late 80s, but I had to put it on the list under the letter J because at various points in time he has been known as John Cougar, John Cougar Mellencamp and John Mellencamp, so it was easiest just to put him under J for John! He put on a great show, although I will say that his support act was interesting. It wasn't another band, but rather some jugglers. It was the first time I had seen anything like it. 

Jimmy Barnes - I shared a Jimmy Barnes song last week but I couldn't do the letter J without including him. Jimmy Barnes is an Aussie music legend. All through our lockdowns Jimmy and his wife Jane have been keeping us all entertained, often with their family members and friends. This is a version of Unchained Melody, where Jimmy sounds quite mellow! Some times he can be quite shouty!


Jolene by Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus and Pentatonix - There are a number of Dolly Parton songs that I loved, but it is hard to go past Jolene, and this version is so good.

The Greatest Showman by Hugh Jackman - Hugh Jackman is good at everythign isn't he! Acting, singing, dancing and all round good guy! We went and saw him in concert a couple of years ago and it was such a good show!

Do you have any J songs!


  1. We have been listening to some old John Prine CDs last week so I have that to contribute to the J post here.
    As a teen we heard the Jackson 5 and of course Jackson Browne singing Doctor My Eyes was a frequent pick on the Juke box.

  2. The song I think of when I think of Jackson Browne is Is She Really Going Out with Him.
