#4M Relaxing Piano Mewsic + @AprilA2Z 2017 Theme

 

Good morning, kittens and dawgs!  Before I launched into my mewsic choices today, I want to share next month’s A-Z theme – Art Sketching through the Alphabet .

After I started college and then moved from career life to motherhood my artist ability (what little I had) sorta vanished.  I did some doodling while the kids were small but my mind was not devoted to it and I couldn’t nurture these interests.  So, it fell by the wayside until last year and that’s when I had an awakening to rekindle the glimmer buried within and it stunned me to see there is still hope!  I am challenging myself to sketch anything that captures my eye using the daily alphabet prompt.  I’m not sure how well this will translate but perhaps if nothing else it will encourage others to massage a dormant talent to life.  I hope you’ll decide to join me each day as I share a bit of me with you A-Z!

Now, I invite you to hit the dance floor with the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” gals – Marie, Stacy, Colette, and myself.  This week’s theme is “freebie picks – your choice”  😉



I enjoyed the above selection of Kern’s that I decided to share with you this YouTube playlist to chillax with this morning.

 

 

What mewsic moves you today? 😉

 

I have scheduled posts set for the rest of the week for your enjoyment and my convenience but something came up last Tuesday that shocked my world. I can’t talk about it because I don’t like airing publically things that are sensitive and I find myself struggling to stay on top of this storm-tossed sea but all I can do is ask for your prays for DS.

I’ll do my best to make my rounds and I hope to see you back for Tuesday Tunesation!!

#4M Band Names or Song Titles with the Word ‘Air’

 

K.D. Lang is a Canadian pop, country singer/songwriter with an eerie sorta resemblance to the late Karen Carpenter that I found a bit mesmerizing in her cover of the classic hit made popular by The Hollies (1974) and landing them in at #2 on the UK and #6 on the US mewsic charts, but what I found it interesting is that the songwriter, Albert Hammond, first recorded “The Air That I Breathe” in 1973.

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 It’s great to be back as co-host to the best dance party in Blogosphere with the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” gals! Thank you, XmasDolly, Stacy, and Colette for having me back after a long hiatus.  Now, I invite you to hit the dance floor.  This week’s theme is “Band Names or Song Titles with the Word ‘Air'”

#4M: Two New-to-Me Artists

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 Normally, I go live at midnight with my mewsic post but I decided to go back to Sundays for two reasons. One, I hope to snag the interest of newbies surfing the net today and two, to make it easier my regulars.   Let’s get things started.  I’m back on board co-hosting with the Monday’s Music Moves Me 🎶 ladies – Marie, Stacy, and Colette and you’re invited to hit the dance floor with us. This week’s theme is “freebie pick – your choice“!



 

Today I’m sharing with you mewsic picks introduced to me by two good blogger friends in Two New-To-Me Artists!

My first selection was shared by Adventures in Weseland which I really enjoyed and I hope you do, too!

 

Did y’all recognize Ruben Blades? He’s an actor. Here’s what I’ve seen him in  Predator 2 (played Detective Danny Archuleta),  The X-FilesTV series (1997 episode, as Conrad Lozano ) The Devil’s Own (as Edwin Diaz), Once Upon a Time in Mexico (character – Jorge FBI),  and Safe House (played Carlos Villar). A series I want to see but haven’t that Blades stars as the main character, Daniel Salazar, is Fear of the Walking Dead. Oh, here’s an interesting factoid. According to Wikipedia Blades is considering another bid for the Panama presidency in 2019. For more Ruben Blades mewsic, check out this YouTube Top Track playlist.  Thanks, Patrick!

Next up, Tina Arena is one of the highest selling Australian singers with 10M records sold worldwide.  Besides her gorgeous vocal multilingual abilities (records in English, Italian, French, & Spanish), she’s a multi-talent songwriter, instrumentalist, theatrical actress, and record producer. This gal has received several international and national awards.

The first time I heard Tina was on fellow BoTBer, Angels Bark site which impressed me and I knew I wanted to feature this song with you. Thanks, Michele!

 

Before I go, let me share one more mewsic vid by this artist uploaded on YouTube ten months ago and has received more than a million views.

 

Want more? Check out this playlist!

 

What mewsic moves you? 😉

 

I hope to see back tomorrow for a bit of random chat and Tuesday Tunesation!

1980s Grammy Award Winners Songs

 

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 I am back on board co-hosting with the Monday’s Music Moves Me ladies – Marie, Stacy, and Colette. This week’s mewsic theme Scriptor suggested “Songs from Grammy Award Winners of the 1980s“.  You’re invited to join the 🎶 linky party and hit the dance floor.



 

John Williams’ ET “Flying Theme” took Best Instrumental Arrangement and Best Instrumental Composition. He also took the win for Best Album of Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special category, too.

 

 

We saw E.T. three times, maybe four the year it came out and I recall we took my in-laws to see it. My FIL fell asleep. That’s not unusual. He does this at home. When we asked my MIL what she thought of the film she said, “He (ET) was so ugly that he was cute”.

Here are some tidbits I found interesting from Wackipedia.

In 1983, E.T. surpassed Star Wars as the highest-grossing film of all-time, and by the end of its theatrical run it had grossed $359 million in North America and $619 million worldwide. Box Office Mojo estimates that the film sold more than 120 million tickets in the US in its initial theatrical run. Spielberg earned $500,000 a day from his share of the profits, while The Hershey Company’s profits rose 65% due to its prominent use of Reese’s Pieces.

I hope to see back tomorrow to meet a new mewsical artist on Tuesday Tunesation!

Happy Birthday Mr. President!

Begin playing at 1:15 to skip the intro

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 It’s great to be back as co-host of the best dance party in Blogosphere with the Monday’s Music Moves Megals! Thank you, XmasDolly, Stacy, and Colette for having me back after a long hiatus.

Today’s theme is a freebie pick and I invite you to hit the dance floor.



In honor of President’s Day and for the two presidents this holiday was originally created for, I’d like to share with you a few songs written about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

For George Washington’s inauguration “Hail, Columbia!” but what I found interesting is this song was our country’s first national anthem which was replaced in 1931 when it was replaced by the “Star Spangled Banner”.

 

 

SchooHouse Rock prompted learning through mewsic. I remember when this song aired on public TV.

 

Abraham Lincoln led the nation during a turbulent era. Google provided a few interesting songs about the man and the below song (and a few others) at Music Weird blog.

 

“We Are Coming Father Abraham” was written in support of Lincoln and the Civil War.

 

I stumbled upon this animation that teaches kids about the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Setting history facts to mewsic is a great way to learn and it’s so much fun!

I hope to see back tomorrow for with two daily post features – Cathy Chats and Tuesday Tunesation!
