Just Missed The Train because that Train is the Night Train – a Long Black Train.

The kids survived their first three days of school – with the exception of having just a half day one day this week, this will be their first full week. I’ll let you know next week how that goes, since I already got a phone call from the school about Little Dude deciding to take a instead of follow his teacher to class.

She’s going to have her hands full with that one.

Since it’s Monday, it’s that time again – tuning in for some tunes! This week’s theme as suggested by our Spotlight Dancer  Danielle of Royalegacy is songs about trains or with the word train in it. I had no idea there were so many songs out there about trains!

Let’s start off with one of my favorite artists who has done so many great songs since she was ‘discovered’ way back in 2002 (the year Princess Nagger was born) with a song that I wasn’t able to find out much about, aside from it’s on this artist’s debut album from 2003.

I wasn’t able to figure out who actually wrote the song, as there are several covers done of it. I like this artist’s version, though, so we’ll go with it.


Here’s Kelly Clarkson with “Just Missed The Train”:

Next up is the second rock single from this group’s fourth studio album. The song was released as a rock radio only promo in May 2008, and was one of the most added tracks, though no music video was ever made for the song because it was a ‘radio only’ single.

The lead singer wrote the lyrics about escaping to a better life, and got help from his bandmates expanding the song. It was, according to them, one of the heavier songs they ever wrote, but definitely a to play.


Here’s 3 Doors Down with “Train”:

Next we have a song where the video features a lot of footage from this artist’s tour by the same name. It covers meet and greets to onstage fireworks, giving those who’ve never been to his concert a look into what they’ve been missing.


Give a listen to Jason Aldean with ”:

Last, but definitely not least, is the first song that came to mind for this week’s theme. So, you know, I saved it for last. When this artist released his debut album this song is on, it didn’t take him long to turn the heads of many country music fans.

This song spent 30 weeks on the country charts, and his deep voice marked his contribution to traditional country gospel – a style that has become rare as more crossover artists the club.

I had to do a double-take when I saw him in the video the first time I saw it – he has such a baby face and his voice is so it didn’t seem like it belonged to him.


Here’s Josh Turner with “Long Black Train”:

Have a great Monday!

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. I gotta remember that name “Josh Turner”. What a strong, deep voice he has for that sweet baby face of his, I agree. I think I’d like anything he sang. Well you have some interesting songs with “train” in them and all new to me – which is what I expected and look forward to hearing on this blog hop. I liked them, so thanks. Great job.

    Glad the kids had a easy start of their school year. Happy Monday (for real now huh?). Smiles.

  2. I like 3 Doors Down. I don’t recall listening to them before now, but surely I have. I definitely like their style with Train ~ great get-to-your-feet-make-you-wanna-move song. Hopefully, making me move to clean the house. Those rich, deep voices sometime do not match the face you’re looking at. In this case Josh Turner. Great fun to dance with you, Stacy!
