Monday's Music Moves Me

A Place in Time #AmandaAbizaid #music

Amanda was born in Beirut, Lebanon to an American mother and Mexican/Lebanese father. All before her 10th birthday, she traveled the Middle East and Europe with her family before moving to the United States with her mother, brother, and four sisters. She and her sisters formed a band. That’s where she developed a talent for harmony. Her exposure to music comprises of a Middle Eastern flavor influenced by late 70s American sounds of Alice Cooper, Elton John, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and The Beatles. The singer – songwriter vocals are best known for The 4400 opening theme song.


The song that peaked my curiosity, A Place in Time….



I’m really hooked on this tune so much so that I had to download it from iTunes. Her interesting sound captured my attention and I wanted explore more of her music. I invite you to dance this way for a little ear candy.

The 4400 complete series is on Netflix. We just started watching the show. Are you familiar with the USANetwork sci-fi program?

What appears to be a comet slows, hovers and stops, then bursts forth to reveal 4,400 people who were presumed dead or missing over the past 50 years. They look exactly the same as the moment they disappeared, but some of the returnees now have special powers.

In 2011, Amanda released Be in Love that includes 8 original songs. This morning, I’m sharing with you the first track, Be In Love With Me Again

I listened to all of the songs and narrowed it down two other tracks worth mentioning This Woman Stays & Goodbye For Now and I invite you to listen to.

Moving on, I found this song while surfing YouTube. Oddly, I couldn’t find it on iTunes. It’s possible it’s an oversight on my part, but listen to Dreams in Ashes.

This past April, Someday Girl,Vol 2 (available on iTunes) released. Amanda captures a similar essence to The 4400 theme song, as well a kinda jazzy overtone which I liked a lot. If there is a volume 2 then there has to be a volume 1, but iTunes didn’t have Someday Girl, Vol 1 listed, but I found it on YouTube.  So, all is good and so is the album.

Anywho, here is She Runs from Someday Girl, Vol 2!

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    The theme song from The 4400 has been on my radar for a while but I’m lazy – I never looked into it. Great series, by the way!

    Thanks for the links and info.

    Her voice is so full and round with harmony.

    Good morning, dear Cathy! Yessum yessum yessum! I certainly do know about Amanda Abizaid. You are going to think I’m copying your idea because, a little over two weeks from now, I will be presenting Amanda and saluting The 4400 on my own blog. I’ve had the finished draft saved for months waiting to publish it on my 7th blog anniversary, July 20.

    I’m happy to learn that you are watching The 4400. I watched the entire series a few months ago. It’s a wonderful show and it gets you thinking about what lies ahead for the human race. The 4400 gets under your skin and the opening theme song, Amanda’s dreamy, atmospheric “A Place In Time,” sets the mood.

    I enjoyed these other songs by Amanda. Her style reminds me of the kind of material that might have been used in Twin Peaks or other David Lynch projects – beautiful and enchanting while at the same time hinting at darkness and danger.

    Enjoy the 4400, dear friend Cathy, and enjoy the rest of your week as well!

      Tom, well…this is rather interesting to know. I think it’s rather neat when another blogger is kinda on the same page as me. Amanda does have that same dreamy quality as Twin Peaks Julee Cruise. Maybe, that’s why I like her so much. I’ll watch for your blogversary post on the 20th. I’ll be looking forward to reading it. Have a tunetastic week!

💕I love comments! Have a purrfect day & thanks for stopping by!💕
