Ultimate Playlist #134: In Times Like These

You’d just have to change a few minor details (like the “nickel candy bar”) but this song is as true today as it was the day Barbara Mandrell debuted it over thirty-five years ago.

Would this surprise Barbara? Not a bit. As she sings, “That’s the way it’s been, and the way it’ll always be.”

Hang tight with the ones you love and you’ll make it through anything.

One thought on “Ultimate Playlist #134: In Times Like These

  1. “I thank the good lord I’ve got you in times like these”…great line in one of my favorite songs. Love this song, this one sure does stand the test of time, except for the 45 cents for a nickel candy bar, and “dollar’s worth of gas won’t even start your car”. The meaning is the same, you are truly lucky in life if you have someone to stand by you in the good times and the bad times, that is what life is all about. As usual Barbara belts out another classic….Great choice for today Egg!
