A Dozen Of Dimes

For not particular reason, I started thinking of songs that mention dimes. Including:

  • “My Hometown” by Bruce Springsteen
    I was eight years old, running with a dime in my hand….
  • “Downtown Train” by Rod Stewart
    I’m shining like a new dime….
  • “Operator” by Jim Croce
    You can keep the dime.
  • “Raspberry Beret” by Prince
    I was working part time at the five and dime…

Okay, that’s not a dozen, but I do have comments enabled here. You help me round out the list, okay?

  1. Brother can you spare a dime?

    Jukebox – Don’t put another dime in the jukebox I don’t wanna hear that song no more

    There. That brings you up to six.

  2. Jewel, “Down So Long”
    And a blind man on the corner
    Said, it’s simple,
    Like flipping a coin
    Don’t matter what side it lands on
    If it’s someone else’s dime

    Do you get the sense my blog is not a “community” and instead is a large contingent of Google users looking to see Samus Aran naked?

  3. “Jenny Says” by my favorite band, Cowboy Mouth

    A dime’s a nickel and a nickel’s none, I throw myself into the Sunday sun

    ~Sheila E~

  4. Please, Mister, Please – Olivia Newton John

    If I had a dime for every time I held you
    Though you’re far away, you’ve been so close to me
    I could swear I’d be the richest girl in Nashville
    Maybe even in the state of Tennessee


  5. Much better, friends. Thanks.

    How about The Drifters: “On Broadway”?
    But how’re ya gonna make some time
    When all you got is one thin dime
    And one thin dime won’t even shine your shoes

    It’s a twofer.
