19 Songs With "Nineteen" In The Title


My wife is nineteen weeks pregnant today. So here's 19 songs with "Nineteen" (or "19") in their titles to celebrate that fact. Did I mention that these are getting harder and harder to put together? Did I also mention that nobody's twisting my arm to make me do them? However, I still managed to find the "required" number of songs, and my more music-savvy readers (listeners?) will be able to recognize at least 8 to 10 of these artists by name, if not by these songs. Only a few more weeks of these before I give up on them entirely, so enjoy them while they last!  ~  JH



1)  Muddy Waters  ~  "She's Nineteen Years Old"




2)  Vanessa Amorosi  ~  "19 Turning Point"




3)  Joe Jackson  ~  "Nineteen Forever"
