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!

Smoother than Chocolate Love Mewsic

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 My friend, XmasDolly puts together the Monday’s Music Moves Me 🎶 linky party. Recently I volunteered to co-host to fill-in while Stacy Uncorked moved into her new home who’s now back. Welcome back, Stacy! But, guess what? So am I! I’m back to full capacity doing my old gig again with the 4M crew. Stacy suggested today’s theme, “Trains or railroads – song titles, lyrics, or anything relating to both”!

 

 

I invite you to hit the dance floor!



 

 

 

Although Stacy’s theme is fabulous. I had this post done ahead. I hope you enjoy my Valentine’s Day theme, Smoother than chocolate Love Mewsic!

Takin’ It To The Streets

 

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 My friend, XmasDolly who puts on the Monday’s Music Moves Me 🎶 linky party is a bit short-handed and I volunteered to co-host for as long as she needs me.  You’re invited to hit the dance floor with me and this week there isn’t a theme, so that means “Your Choice“.


This is a mewsic hop, so please link only relevant posts!😘

 

Recently on Facebook, I stumbled across a video of Fly By Night Rounders with Abby the Spoon Lady performing on the streets of Asheville, North Carolina and I thought, “How fun!” This inspiration led me to look for street mewsicians for my Takin’ It To The Streets post.


Visit Abby’s site and follow her on Facebook, as well as Fly By Night Rounders.

I thought I’d check out the street entertainment in Knoxville and found this young man. There was little I could find on him but I hope you enjoy the vid. This is definitely something you don’t see every day, a cello player on the street!

 

Jeremy has a dream, can you help him? Visit his GoFundMe page.

Another Knoxville act I found is this fun jazz band, Old City Buskers, during my search.  This makes me think of the prohibition era, what do you think?

 

One more thing, if you’re the creative type and looking for more memes to connect with then Impulsive Artistry hosts the Monday meme Feeling Inspired? where you can share your photography, crafts, mewsic, and more posts.   What mewsic are you listening to lately? 😉

I hope to see back tomorrow for my new meme, Tuesday Tunesation!

January Song Titles and Lyrics

Good Monday morning, Kittens and Dawgs!  Dang, if it ain’t the day before the last day of the first month of the new year already.  That’s the long version of saying, this is the last Monday.  Where’s my coffee?

Hopefully, your day isn’t so January-ish as in the cold snowy variety. Our forecast called for some of that fluff overnight but I haven’t looked out the window yet. Grab something hot to drink and settle in with me for a bit as I share with you January Song Titles and Lyrics!

 

 

Thank you for including me in your Monday. 😉 My friend, XmasDolly who puts on the Monday’s Music Moves Me 🎶 linky party is a bit short-handed and I volunteered to co-host as long for as long as she needs me.  You’re invited to hit the dance floor.



I schedule my Monday mewsic posts but our Spotlight Dancer, John came up with the 4M theme Songs with blue in the title or songs you play when you’re feeling blue and since I got wind of it early enough I am able to share my pick. 🙂

 

Great theme, John, and congrats on being in the spotlight this week! 😉

Now back to my regular scheduled post theme. 🙂 Van Morrison sings, “Gotta get through January”, we’re just about to see January scoot right out the door.

 

The Gypsies’ life wouldn’t suit me but I think that’s what O’Brien lyrics is referring to. What do you think?

As long as I remember I’ve been wandering
January to December I go wandering

 

I’m not good when it comes to deciphering poems or song lyrics but BLS penned the words

I can’t forget the cold
That fell January day

Throughout the song, it mentions the cold in January, which gives me the sense of someone’s passing. What’s your interpretation?

 

I’ll admit it’s hard for me to come up with songs or lyrics off the sleeve but what January song titles or lyrics can you think of or are you like me drawing a blank without Google’s help?

Thank you for including me in your Monday. I’m gonna leave you with one more by a Scottish singer who hit the British Singles Chart at #11 in 1980 with this song! 😉

 

Oh yeah, I invite you back for tomorrow’s early February edition of Battle of the Bands.

Tunes to relax the soul + #BoTB results

 

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 My friend, XmasDolly who puts on the Monday’s Music Moves Me 🎶 linky party is a bit short-handed and I volunteered to co-host as long for as long as she needs me.  You’re invited to hit the dance floor.



My mewsic pleasure is all over the place sometimes. This morning I felt a bit mellow and felt the beautiful native American flute mewsic fit what I needed which led me down the path to finding suitable tunes to relax the soul.

Enjoy this 26-song playlist while writing, drawing, reading, napping, relaxing, cleaning, or visiting other blogs.

 

One more thing, if you’re the creative type and looking for more memes to connect with then Impulsive Artistry hosts the Monday meme Feeling Inspired? where you can share your photography, crafts, mewsic, and more posts.   What mewsic are you listening to lately? 😉

In my Sunny with a touch of Soul #BoTB showdown between Stevie Wonder and the James Brown and Mara Whitney duet, there was no contest.  So, there’s no wonder that the winner is Stevie Wonder (15 to 1) which includes my vote for Mr. Wonder. Thanks Debbie for making sure my battle wasn’t a shutout! 🙂

This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with a touch of soothing Wonder for your soul.

 


I hope to see y’all back for not-so Wordless Wednesday!
