#AtoZChallenge : Stand

We’re back again with more fun with the A to Z Challenge.

A quick review of what we’re doing here:

I’ll post 2 to 3 songs with a word that represents the letter of the day. In the comments, you’ll share songs that also use said word in either the title or lyrics.  Pretty easy, and loads of fun!

Today’s word is “Stand”

From Dictionary.com:

Bob Marley “Get Up Stand Up”

Tina Turner “I Can’t Stand the Rain”

Police “Don’t Stand So Close To Me


And that’s my 3 ‘Stand’ songs for the day.  Let’s see what ‘Stand’ songs you come up with. Share in the comments.

Don't forget to check out the results for Battle of the Bands!

  1. Mary,

    You've shared two new-to-me song titles featuring the keyword 'stand' with the first two track selections. The songs that comes to mind is 'Stand By Me' Otis Redding andr Tammy Wynette's 'Stand By Your Man' but I'm sure there are others. I'm gonna have to check out more song titles. Thanks for sharing the 4M dance floor with me, my friend. Have a boogietastic week and happy a2zing! ;)

    1. Those are two good ones, Cathy! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Tina Turner was one of those "Ultimate Entertainers". She brought an energy to the stage that few could match and voice that was instantly recognizable. Thanks for sharing your music with us today. Have a blessed week.

  3. Great Stand Tunes,thanks for sharing them!

  4. Wonderful Stand tunes! Cathy named the ones that came to my mind too.

    1. You gotta watch out for that Cathy... she always has some good ones! Thanks for dropping by, Janet :)

  5. R.E.M's "Stand" is such a true classic. It is the best Stand song there is.

    1. YES! I knew I could count on someone to mention that one :)

  6. WOO HOO BOB MARLEY! You go girl... you have totally ROCKED the house! Now what else are you rockin' here? Police... they're good, but my girl Tina Turner totally ROCKS! You were definitely in the mood today weren't you! ~hehehe~ I can't stand the rain.... okay, I admit it... I sung that one... hehehe~ YOU ROCK!

  7. I do enjoy your theme because it makes one thinks of songs with these words in the title. Stand By Me came into my head first. these are good songs you chose

  8. Love The Police song!

    Stand By You by Rachel Platten
    Can't Stand The Rain by Lady Antebellum
    Stand My Ground by Within Temptation

  9. Love your 'Stand' songs, Police is my favorite. Ronel mentioned the ones that came to my mind first - Stand By You by Rachel Platten, and Can't Stand The Rain by Lady Antebellum - and of course "Stand By Me" is another one that popped in my noggin. ;) Thanks for the dance! :)

  10. "Stand Back" by Stevie Nicks. Tina Turner can rock the house, can't she? The other two paled in comparison to her.
