#1 Peak 2016 Songs

Good morning, Kittens & Dawgs!  I feel I lost a year mewsically.  What I mean is I don’t recall the hits played on the radio.  I was a bit disconnected. That being said since it’s the last day of the year and I thought I’d feature some #1 Peak 2016 Songs mentioned on this listed.



Bieber has two other #1 peak songs Sorry (I like this one) and What Do You Mean (doesn’t really reel me in).  The next song features Bieber. I’m undecided if I like it or not but it does make me wanna dance.






What did you think of today’s mewsic? Do you have a favorite? Have you heard these before today?  What song released this year that you like a lot? Feel free share a vid or a link in comments for me and others to discover.

That’s a wrap for this week. I’d like to say farewell to 2016 and to the musicians who passed mentioned on Ranker and We❤️Music.  Y’all be safe if you venture out with the party going crowd.  I’m stayin’ home with the One I love having pizza, watching a few movies, snacking,  and shortly before midnight countdown with millions in Time Square as the ball drops ringing in the New Year.  I hope to see you back on Monday. You’ll have lots of tunes to get you moving with Mewsic Moves Me as well as my Jan. 1st BoTB showdown. Have a songsational Saturday!







#SaturdaySongsuasion presents #OfficialAdele!

I attribute my edition of Saturday Songsuasion to watching Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) earlier in the week.


Rumor Willis. Has. It.  Her natural talent sizzled on the dance floor (a little of her mama shined through in her moves) this past Monday of DWTS while doing the Cha-Cha with her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy to this 2011 Billboard Hot 100 hit.

The uniqueness of this singer’s vocals really need no introduction with this bluesy-pop stomping number, but for the musically challenged (I admit I am one at times) I present to you the sensational British songwriter and singer…



Thanks to the many contributors on YouTube I found this a nice Adele playlist to share this morning with my kittens & dawgs! Just click, surf, clean, or relax to these blue-eyed soulful, R&B tunes.

The Year 2011

Angela and I would like to welcome you to another edition of WAYBACK WEDNESDAYS!

Today, we’re looking at the year…


What comes to mind when you think back only a short year ago?
This is what comes to mind…

  • In March Japan’s tsunami was the deadliest disaster since the 1995 Great Hanshin earthquake. By September 11 the count stood: 15,850 deaths, 6,011 injured, and 3,287 missing. Loss of life unmeasured – property damage millions of dollars –  a horribly scary tragedy with three severely damaged nuclear reactors in the mix.
  • The good news is the world became a little better place to live with Gaddafi and Bin Laden’s deaths. Is there global peace at last? Not hardly but when evil people’s existence is no more, then one can’t help to feel a sense of relief.
  • Norway’s shooting death of 69 at a youth summer camp left the world stunned to learn it wasn’t just an act of international terrorism but a deeply disturbed Norwegian political extremist.
  • Amy Winehouse’s death somewhat stunned the country but honestly when someone has a history of drug abuse then one can’t be too surprised. It’s not a question IF it’ll happen, it just a matter of WHEN will it happen. Honestly, I never heard of the singer before until she died.  It’s always sad when someone so young throws his/her life and talents away like Amy Winehouse. Nothing ever good becomes of drug use period. Just say NO to drugs!
  • On a personal note, I became the proud owner of an Apple iPhone4 – my first ever smartphone! I’m totally addicted and can’t ever imagine going back to a regular mobile phone again.
  • Adele hit the musical hot spot, popping up all over the place last year. One of my favorites.

Now, it’s time to look at others’ Wayback Wednesday flashbacks.  Why not join the fun, simply create your own 2011 post and link up. It’s that easy! Wanna a return following or visit? Then, leave us a comment and we’ll do the favor in like kind.


This concludes the Wayback Wednesday flashbacks but we’re not disappearing. Nope, Angela wants to keep WW afloat by featuring her favorite music picks for the week. Music is like medicine for the soul. Come back and get in on the fun next Wednesday!


What’s taking you wayback on Wayback Wednesday?

Something Special – 4Ms

Good Monday Moooorning!  Our weather forecast for today is, Sunny. Hot. High 94F. Winds NE at 5 to 10 mph.  But, if you look to the right you’ll see I added a cool AccuWeather widget to my blog.  Now, you can experience our weather every time you visit my blog.  Now, don’t you feel special? I hope you do because in my book you are…


Something Special Lyrics
I found a way to be everything
I dreamed of
And I know it to me that I will become
Who I want to be
And I finally found it
And I’m taking the long way out
Cause its gonna be
Something special to me
Something special to meChorus
Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but i’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mineIts something special to me x3I found so many things
I dreamed of
And I know it to me
That I will become
Who I want to be
And I finally found it
And I’m takin’ the long way out
And its gonna be
Something special to me
Something special to meChorus
Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but i’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mineIts something special to me
More than I hoped for
More than I dreamed of
This is how it should be
More than I hoped for
More than I dreamed of
This is how it should be

Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but i’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mine
Its something special to me (8x)

This week’s MMMM theme is a FREEBIE choice.  This meme really rocks! I look forward to joining in with all the gang each Monday morning.  I am always eager to find new musical jewels amongst my blog friends and the challenges it puts in me to savage around YouTube looking for something new to me to bring to you, like the one above and the ones below.

I really love Tamia’s soulful expression and heart-moving rendition of….

Jammin’ on Monday mornings really gets my heart pumpin’ and it makes my entire being soar with happiness!  I decided to bounce, yeah bounce, over to billboard.com to see what’s listed coz you know most of the artists out there today either are not registered or recognizable in my mind. Can I blame this on age or just being a Mom?  Anyhow, like I said, being a part of this meme brings some freshness to my musical taste buds. With that, #9 on the Billboard hits is…

very catching tune, eh?  And, I love the title “Good Life”. That makes me happy because well…I have a ‘good life’, don’t you?

One of my growing favorite female vocalists is the lovely Adele.  Until a few months ago, I didn’t know who she was and then WHAM there she was. Wow, right?  Her beautiful voice and the story behind her heart-felt lyrics mingle in a way which magically touches me. At #85…

I had to include this as my final selection for today, so I leave you with #94.  I believe it’ll make you smile…


This week’s spotlight couple is….


  1.   Random Thoughts from a wandering mind
  2.  Life, Music, & Laughter
A special announcement….

Monday’s Music Moves Me – One Name Singer or Sonwriters

World’s Fair Park in Knoxville, TN
June 2008
Picture source

Last week, we experienced a lot of thunderstorms, high winds, and some tornadoes.  These crazy storms left us without power part of the time but one of the worse things was, we were without Internet service from Wednesday night through the better part of Saturday. I nearly went stir-crazy. What did I do before social networking and blogging? Oh yeah, now I remember! My emphasis was placed on routine, mundane housework. Blah! So…that’s what I did.  I preoccupied my time with ironing, washing clothes, … as I tried to patiently wait for Comcast to get our service resumed.

Here it is Sunday and normally I’m nowhere near my blog but DH had to work today. Yes, you read right. His office has a hot project due out either today or tomorrow. Since I have time to play then I’m gonna jump-start my Monday memes early. This will be a first for me!

Are you ready to get dancing? What music moves you?  This week’s Music Moves Me theme is singer/groups with one name. So, I give to you.





WARNING….Madonna is coming up next, so this may or may not be offensive to some. Get the kiddies out of the room just on the off-chance she’s anything less than an angel. =D



The spotlight couple for this Monday is…



Get your feet moving, and your body grooving as you climb aboard with dance fever style found on the Love Train hosted by the Monday’s Music Moves Me Crew with your hosts:  XmasDolly – Head Conductor and her Co-Conductors: Lorie @ The Shewbridges of Central Florida, Larry @ Cakeblast, Callie @ JamericanSpice, and her newest addition: Stacy @ Stacy Uncorked.


Have a marvelous Monday!
