Discussion: Gimme a Break!

I love my job.  I love going to school.  I love teaching religious education.   But this was one of those weeks where the teaching, the classes, and the supplementary professional development workshops became a little overwhelming.   Earlier today, one of my graduate classes ended.  I loved the class, but it’s nice to have my Saturdays back.    I need a break!

Thankfully, my amazing writing staff has made my absence unnoticeable, but as I make my return, I’m thinking tonight about songs that capture that “I need a break” feeling.   Here are some of my favorites:

Keith Urban, “Raining on Sunday”


John Conlee is always good.


And just because it’s my site and I can indulge in my favorite non-country artist:


What are your favorite “Gimme a Break!” songs?

  1. This whole post cracks me up. You and your Madonna love.

    Anyway, I’ve recently become quite fond of Eric Church’s “Livin’ Part of Life.”

    This doesn’t fit the theme to a T, but Wanda Jackson’s “Let’s Have a Party” certainly makes me want to take a break, so I mean…that kinda works.

    And of course, nobody expresses job-related exhaustion quite like Toby Keith.

    “Honey, I’m Home” by Shania is oneof my favorites.

    John Conlee sitting alongside Madonna. Whodda thunkit?

    Rosanne Cash & John Haitt – One Step Over The Line

  4. Bomshel – Ain’t My Day To Care
    When I hear this song I always think of relaxing

  5. I love that Eric Church song too!

    Tift Merritt–“Sunday” (from her 2002 debut album Bramble Rose).

    Because, as she sings, “Sunday is nobody’s business.”
