Dance Freebie Style #4M and Leather Tuscadero Wins #BoTB

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, Kittens & Dawgs! Contrary to what you might be thinking, I’m really taking a blogging break for the next couple of weeks. I just have a strange way of doing it. I’m just committed to co-hosting the best dance party in Blogosphere with the 4M gals. This week, we’re dancing “freebie style” which means anything goes mewsic wise that is! Reel in your wild side folks. This is a family friendly site. 😉

I came across this morning picks last month which I saved just for this occasion and I hope you enjoy them, too.

 

 

It just dawned on me that both artists begin with the letter “P” but I didn’t find these mewsicians while doing the A to Z Challenge because of this reason or at least I don’t think so. I guess it’s possible I could have but I do remember looking for songs for the alpha-prompt “W” when I came across “Watercolour”. The thing is I didn’t use any mewsic in either of those posts.

While I’m here, I might as well let the Cathy out of the bag on who won in last week’s “Glad All Over” #BoTB Showdown.

This was a run away 11-3 victory for Suzy Quatro including my vote for Leather Tuscadero. Yeah, that’s a name from those good ole “Happy Days” which I totally forgot about until John reminded me. Thanks to everyone for making this a fun battle showdown and I’ll see you for June 1st #BoTB!

 

 

 

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs!  I invite you to hit the dance floor with the M4 gang XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette, and little ole me! This week’s theme “freebie style” – your choice of mewsic!

Here’s the code below if you would like to use it on your site just copy and paste!

Singers/Mewsicians Celebrating Birthdays Today #4M

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Attention: I encourage you to read my A2Z reflections post from Saturday regardless if you participated or not. Now, I have an appointment tomorrow which makes blogging difficult, so I decided to publish this a day early. Our mewsic theme this week is Singer/Mewsicians Celebrating Birthday on Monday. 

 

 

My first birthday guest is a new-to-me but I thoroughly enjoyed this recording.


Australian-born Anthony Fields celebrates his 54th birthday today. He is the guitar soloist in the above video and I felt it this song choice an excellent way to start the week, don’t you agree, Kittens and dawgs?

Next up is a familiar artist to us all and if you haven’t heard of him, then what rock have you been under?


Enrique turns 42 and if you liked this song, then you may want to visit/revisit a past MMMM post featuring more of his mewsic.

My last featured birthday boy is the youngest of the pack turning 29 today and formally a member of the UK band, Lawson, and lead singer – Andy Brown.

 

Brown is a new-to-me artist who’s also known for Taking Over Me and Brokenhearted. He’s now a solo artist (sample his Seasons album) who now is billed as Adyn Townes.  I believe I preferred Brown’s singing when he was with Lawson then what I found on his bandcamp site but it was still a nice. I like broadening my mental mewsic library.

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs!  I invite you to hit the dance floor with the M4 (borrowed from John at The Sound of One Hand Typing) gang XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette , and little ole me! 😉



What mewsic moves you today? 😉

Before I go, let me announce last week’s BoTB winner in 3-Way “Take It Easy” showdown.  This was a hard pick for me. I was torn between Mamadear (uptempo female lead) and Firecracker Vida (traditional Eagle sound). In the end, I found Mamadear’s cover resonated well with me getting my vote but it wasn’t enough to help her.  She gave the victor a good run, though.

Totals: Mamadear – 5, Firecracker Vida – 7, and Faithless Street – 1

The rest of the week and maybe the next two, I’m talking it easy to regroup after the April A to Z Challenge. Not to worry I have two weeks worth of Monday Mewsic scheduled and if you leave your footprints here on my site, I will follow them back to you. I’ll see you soon!

Have a good week, my dear friends.

3-Way “Take It Easy” #BoTB showdown

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Howdy, Kittens & Dawgs! It’s not only Monday (time to hit the dance floor with the 4M crew) but it’s a brand new month (you guessed it, BoTB time).

This week’s Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me theme is “freebie” pick which works beautifully for my first BoTB showdown of May.  I feel like the wind got kicked out of my sail after last month’s A to Z challenge and next Monday please join me for reflection post. Speaking of the A to Z challenge this inspired today’s battle song Take It Easy by The Eagles for this showdown.

In this round, I’m featuring three new-to-me mewsicians. The first two didn’t have too many YouTube views but 3rd had considerable more views. Anywho, I wanted to skip the big names who’s covered this song and go with some unknowns (to me anyhow) like Jackson Browne (one of the songwriters),  Travis Tritt, Buck Owens, or Joe Welsh & Glenn Frey (Eagles band member & the other songwriter).

Contender #1, begins song at the 0:19 mark, Mama Dear.

 

Mama Dear uptempo version is different and suits the song better than I thought.  The band has great harmonies and the gal does a nice job with her unpretentious vocals but sometimes she doesn’t say the ending to her words. That’s a bit of a distraction, does it bother you?

Contender #2 Firecracker Vida

 

Firecracker Vida is a close match up with The Eagles’ original. The band is very talented. I’m not sure if the lead vocalist is enough to sway my vote yet, how about you?

 

Contender # 3, interesting lead-in to cover which starts at 0:41 seconds, Faithless Street.

 

Faithless Street possibly is my least favorite of the three but it was interesting enough to include it in the battle.  What do you think?

Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional).

Which artist gets your vote – Mama Dear, Firecracker Vida, or Faithless Street?

The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players and be sure to check back next week to learn the outcome of this battle. You’re welcome to step out on the dance floor with XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette, and me.



 

 

Please share the mews!

 

What mewsic moves you today? 😉

I hope to see back tomorrow for a bit of randomness in my newest edition of Cathy Chats with 5 Ways to Take it Easy plus more mewsic with Tuesday Tunesation!

#4M Sci-Fi Movie or TV Show Mewsic

 

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs and for joining m for the best dance party in Blogosphere with the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” that I co-host along with these incredible ladies, Marie, Stacy, and Colette.  This week’s theme is “Sci-Fi Movie or TV Show Mewsic”



 

 

 

I opened with A Place in Time used for the popular short-run TV series, The 4400.  I love this song and I own.  Today, I’m sharing with you theme mewsic for some of my favorite sci-fi TV series.  All of these programs are available on Netflix streaming other than my last selection and it’s on Amazon Prime.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed my sci-fi picks and I can’t wait to listen to your selections.

What sci-fi mewsic moves you? 😉

Thank you for joining me today. The past couple of weeks have been a bit stressful and with DH’s eye surgery last Thursday then I’m really wiped out! He’s doing good after his retina re-attachment surgery but we learned he’ll more than likely need cataract surgery in that eye within six months and there’s always the possibility for a retina detachment reoccurrence in the same eye. Please remember DH in your prayers. Alrighty, folks the rest of the week I’m preparing for the A2Z challenge and won’t be hanging out in Blogosphere but I hope you’ll decide to you join me on Saturday for Art Sketching Through the Alphabet!

#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!!
