Puritan's Pride Vitamins

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! This week’s theme is Male Names Song Titles/Lyrics.



 

 

 

I had some obvious first song picks with this week’s theme which I wanted to use but pretty certain they’ll get a lot of play time from others, so I began thinking of a theme within the theme coming up with songs inspired by or written about male celebrities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m wind things down in another direction with my theme within a theme by sharing a playlist of songs written about male celebrities.

 

I went with the artists’ songs I most enjoyed that I found in this article and according to the artists wrote with these entertainers in mind.

  1. No Doubt, “Don’t Speak” (Tony Kanal)
  2. Selena Gomez, “The Heart Wants What It Wants” (Justin Bieber)
  3. Taylor Swift, “Style” (Harry Styles)
  4. Sheryl Crow, “My Favorite Mistake” (Eric Clapton)
  5. Taylor Swift, “All Too Well” (Jake Gyllenhaal)
  6. Britney Spears, “Everytime” (Justin Timberlake)
  7. Taylor Swift, “Last Kiss” (Joe Jonas)
  8. Madonna, “Miles Away” (Guy Ritchie)
  9. Carly Simon, “You’re So Vain” Devid Geffen UPDATE: Per Wikipedia song is NOT about Geffen. Part of the song IS about Warren Beatty and at least two other unknown men.

 

Can you share a song(s) not already named with today’s theme? Leave your “male name song titles/lyrics picks in comments! Who knows maybe I’ll do a future post with your suggestions. ūüėČ

 

Most of the summer…well pretty much of all of summer I’ve been unofficially off the blogging radar but it’s official now. I’m away from Blogosphere until after Labor Day but… I am hitting the dance floor each week. I can’t let my co-hosts and you down to get your week hoping now, can I? I’ll see ya next week for “your choice” song picks with Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me!

Follow the to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road #AprilA2Z fun! #music

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

I interrupt the regular program¬† to bring you this special announcement….¬†I pre√ęmpt all routine posts to bring you my contributions to this month’s largest blogging event. Don’t worry, normal posting will resume next month like clock work (I hope). Meanwhile, I invite you to stick around to enjoy and follow the to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road #AprilA2Z fun!


Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! Obviously, I could have gone with Weird Al Yankovic this morning, but I featured him on a recent Sunday Sillies this month. Yeah, I didn’t plan so well. That’s okay. All is good, I’m sure to find an assortment of yammering tunes

Yanni’s finest tunes are good to relax and unwind to while surfing the net. However, I want to take a fresh approach with a new discovery. What do you get when you throw a banjo picker, mandolin loving, bass player, guitar strummer together? Why the Yonder Mountain String Band!

 

You can’t compare Yanni with YMSB ~ different sound & style. Hate ’em or love em?!

Coz, I Want to be Your Everything

 

I aim to please on Curious as a Cathy, yes?!  Come on, get to your feet and dance with me to the mainstream synthesizing modern sounds from this YouTube playlist an oldie 70s group. I give you the Best of YES!


I’ll leave you with another new group I stumbled upon, Young Rising Son. They might climb High on the music chart, if this sample of their music is any indicator.

What famous or not-so-famous “Y” artists can you name? How about a popular song title that begins with the letter “Y”?

Follow me while I visit a few of my fellow youthful (or at least young-at-heart) bloggers taking part in this yarn spinning (for some) A2Z challenge or others like me who don’t want to yak so much, but dance.

The beauty of photography today is, you are not limited to altering an image through the eye of the camera. You are free to unleash the artist within by selecting from a variety of special effects and simply adding those changes to suit your fancy with your favorite photo editor.

Right Back Where We Started From, Mony Mony, Crocodile Rock, & We’re An American Band on 4M

 

Welcome to 130th¬†edition of¬†Monday’s Music Moves Me. ¬†This week’s theme is “Any song(s) which bring back good memories – music, commercial jingles, etc“.

I’m not sure why “Right Back Where We Started From” stands out in my mind, but when I hear this song it makes me happy. I assume it has something to do with a good experience, but I can’t swear to it. With that in mind, I do have some flashback songs¬† with good vibes in my soul. Dance with me down memory lane!

In the early 70s, I spent a week with my uncle and his wife. That was the highlight of my summer vacation. They didn’t have children at the time, so they indulged me just a bit. There wasn’t much to do in rural West Virginia, but there was always a steady supply of music. Whenever I think of such sweet times, Tommy James and the Shondells always come to mind….

 

As a kid, roller skating was one of the few things I got to do. It was favorite pastime for many. Although, we didn’t get to go a lot, when we were lucky to enough to go to the rink then it was a blast. One of my favorite songs to roller skate to was….

 

During my 9th grade year, we had a Christmas prom. This was really exciting, but we were not allowed to have dates outside of those who attended my school. That meant, DH who was then BF could not go. What a bummer!

He was or I should say is tricky. He found away around the school’s no date clause. He asked the local band (who he use to play with regularly), if he could sub as their drummer. I had no clue until this song played….

 

Memories and songs seem universally¬†synonymous. It’s hard to not put a song with a particular experience – good or bad. Hopefully, you have more good memories than bad this Monday as you think on yesteryear for today’s theme.¬†

Are you ready to get dancing? Admission to this awesome party is totally doable. Here’s what you do….

  • Go to YouTube¬†insert¬†your music video of choice
  • Grab the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” Button¬†
  • Follow all 4 hosts, including the honorary co-host
  • Link your 4M below

Hostess of this virtual dance party is Marie of XmasDolly along with her co-hostesses:

Our spotlight dancer tops the linky line up in the number one spot – Congratulations, my friend!

Go ahead, shake your bootie with any of the fellow rockin’ bloggers¬†below and if you wanna make put a smile on some one’s face today then be sure to leave them a comment!

 
Next stop… your place! ¬†What songs bring back good memories for you?
