5 Songs for the New Year, a Fabulous Resolutions Quote, #BoTB & #SYW

Good morning, Kittens and Dawgs! This is gonna be a long post. Just relax and unwind. We’re in no hurry. In fact, I’m not sure who’s going to show today but for those who are ready to boogie then,  I invite you step on the floor with my dance partners:  XmasDolly, Stacy, & Colette!  This week’s theme is songs relating to “the New Year“.

 

We stayed up late last night ringing in the new year our traditional way movie marathan, pizza, and a whole of snacking. Naturally, we watched the ball drop in Time Square, kissed, exchanged happy new year wishes, and tossed to 2018 with nothing but the best – Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider. I’m certain I’m moving slow today…maybe not even present in Blogosphere at the moment but I’ll get around to dancing with you!

Please read….This is a weekly hop for mewsic enthusiasts regardless if you follow our weekly theme if you have tunes to share then we’re ready to dance with you. Otherwise, I ask that you do not link non-related posts below to boost traffic to your site. You’re welcome to leave your URL in comments with a brief description inviting me (and others) to check it out. Thank you!



 

How did you spend New Year’s Eve? Are you ready to for a new beginning? What mewsic moves you?

 

Next, I invite you to plug-in with the “Sparks” community hosted by good pal, Annie at McGuffy’s Reader where you can energize your soul and make the world a little better with sparks of encouragement. Let’s make the world a better place, one person at a time beginning with #1! 😉

Can you live by these resolutions with me?

Okay, this is my last segment. In keeping with my New Year’s theme, I decided to go with two song parodies for my first Battle of the Bands for 2018. Hey, if you can’t keep ’em then laugh at ’em (or yourself)!

Parody #1 Hella Cravings (Adele “Hello”)

 

Parody #2 All About That Change (Meghan Trainor “It’s About That Bass”)

 

You’ll find more awesome battles underway at some of these blog listed below (not everyone is doing the bi-monthly showdowns now) and if you’d like to be included in the fun, then contact Stephen requesting to be added to the list.

Angels Bark (Michele), Cherdo on the Flipside, Book Lover (Donna), The Doglady’s Den (Debbie), Your Daily Dose (Robin), Jingle Jangle Jungle (Mary), Mike’s Ramblings, Righting & Editing (Janie), STMcC Presents BoTB (Stephen, BoTB Manager)The Sound of One Hand Typing (John), & Tossing It Out (Lee).

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 or in this case song you like best and why (optional).

Which parody gets your vote, #1 or #2?

 

Here’s another chance to get to know me a wee bit better in Share Your World, hosted by Cee’s Photography. If you don’t see the little Q&A section beyond this point, then all that means is I need to lift them from Cee’s site and add them. Chances are I’m working on that right now or else there isn’t one this week, which ever you may want to come back to in a few to see if this has changed.

 

Hit the dance floor next week with “Your Choice” mewsic and find out which parody wins this first round of BoTB. My next showdown is on the 15th, so mark your calendar. Keep those tunes playing and your body swaying, I’ll see ya around the cyber block. I’ll be back tomorrow for Cathy Chats for a bit of random conversation and mewsic! 😉

Happy New Year’s Greetings & June in January #BoTB showdown

2017-hny-message
 

Hello, Kittens & Dawgs! Here it is another January. A brand new year for a fresh beginning. With the cold winds blowing I thought it nice to think about warm weather…it’s June in January because I’m in love.  Yep, I’m in love with the same feller for a very long time.  From the 1934 movie, “Here Is My Heart”, Bing Crosby first performed June in January (song reference only).

June in January

Lyricists: Leo Robin & Ralph Rainger

It’s June in January
Because I’m in love
It always is spring in my heart
With you in my arms

The snow is just white blossoms
That fall from above
And here is the reason, my dear
Your magical charms

The night is cold
The trees are bare
But I can feel the scent of roses in the air
It’s June in January
Because I’m in love
But only because I’m in love with you

But I can feel the scent of roses in the air
It’s June in January
Because I’m in love
But only because I’m in love with you

There was only been a couple of dozen covers of Crosby’s original.  I found two I rather liked and it’s gonna be a hard pick for me.  How about you?

Contender #1, I present the soft, seductive sound of a real Calendar Girl, Julie London.

 

Contender # 2 is the classic smooth vocals of a very likable fellow, Dean Martin.

 

I loved Dean-O’s variety shows from the 70s and do recognize Julie London from the 70s TV series, Emergency?

 

Whose touch did you like, the girl or the boy’s… vocally speaking of course?

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 is your favorite, Julie or Dean-O?

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.   I’ll share the results of this battle in my January 9th Mewsic Moves Me post. Speaking of which, I hope you’ll decide to dance with me and Monday’s Music Mewsic Moves Me crew.

This is Curious as a Cathy saying, “Happy New Year!” and just let me saying I’m looking forward to another marvelous year with you my good friends! 😉
