80 years Until Spring 1973

Scroll down to content

Every day from now until Spring, I will play a song from each year from 1940-2020. I’ll also write a little bit about the song and why I chose it to represent that year.

I have my share of superstitions. I don’t feel like they overwhelm me, but they are there. I really can’t explain their origins, they have just been around as long as I can remember. Not to mention they are oddly specific.  I am afraid of the number 22, not afraid per se just that it brings bad luck. (Which is especially weird since I was born on the 22nd day of the month)  I am also afraid of the day of November 20th. Each November 20th I tend to try to have the day off work, and I don’t want to drive on the day if I can avoid it.  I am also phobic about being hit by a drunk driver. I loathe driving on holidays because of it. (Especially St. Pat’s and New Year’s Eve.


So what are your superstitions? Don’t be afraid to share them. I have my own silly ones, so this is a judgment-free zone.

  1. I have my share of wierd phobias but I think my only superstitions that I have are full moons 😬 and walking under ladders – which is pretty rediculous because I work for a construction company and am always walking around and under ladders🤦

      1. You would be surprised how often, walking under a ladder is the only clear path – not necessarily when people are on them but it happens. Full moons are just bad. 🙄
