mewsic moves me Monday music

American Girl Living in America now an American Woman Red, White, and Blue!

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! This month, I’m helping my good blogger pal, XmasDolly and the 4M crew. One of her chicks is out on vacation, so I’m filling her dance shoes as a temporary co-host. I know, I know it’s 4th of July with only a few on the dance floor today. That’s ok. The rest of you get a pass! That being said, when you do get a chance come shake your tail feathers with us!

Let’s kick off this block party with some good ole songs about America!

 

 

 

 

 

What mewsic are you listening to lately? I’d love to know what songs are moving you, so please feel free to tell me in comments. 😉

While I’m co-hosting Monday’s Music Moves Me, feel free to link your music posts below. You can find the 4M button on XmasDolly’s site to snag and display on your site. Now, get out there and boogie!

Independence-Day

to my fellow Americans and God bless the USA!

May freedom and rock n’ roll never die. Party on, my friends! Special salute to my friends across the pond in their recent #Britexit victory!

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! American pride is something we all have for our country and we love to show it on special occasions, but why wait? I think it’s good to show your colors for the red, white, and blue anytime of the year.

Over the years, I have gotten DH several patriotic shirts. He has two favorites ~ a waving flag Polo and a long-sleeve American flag shirt. These are beautiful shirts!

A week ago, he asked if I could get him a navy version of the waving flag and a slightly different version of the LS American flag shirt. I was able to order the Polo as requested. Who-hoo! The smaller sizes are out of stock for the other shirt until September. No worries, I’ll be sure to order at that time and who knows…maybe I’ll want something else then, too. 😀

So, why am I telling you all of this you say? Well… the owner of the company sent me an email thanking me for my recent purchase and asked that I tell my friends about them. So, being the girl next door that I am, I wanted to help spread the word.

The folks at The Flagshirt company have a great site filled with patriotic apparel for the whole family. They have tees, tanks, short-sleeve, long-sleeve, and sweatshirts, but they are more than shirt store. They have board shorts, bikini wear, beach towels, hats, flip-flops, and so much more. Show your American pride anytime, shop….

Southern Rock Bands

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

It’s time to party Monday music style! Are you ready to boogie? Lace up your blue suede shoes. It’s time to dance freebie style to whatever tunes are getting your groove on, but I am rockin’ to the sound of three of my favorite Southern Rock bands!

 

Appearing on Atlanta Rhythm Section 1976 album The Rock and Roll Alternative, So Into You became the groups’ first major hit.

 

Thanks for joining us for another week Monday’s Music Moves Me! On behalf of the lovely Dancing Queen,  Marie @XmasDolly  and her Solid Gold dancers ~ Callie @JAmericanSpice, Stacy @Stacy Uncorked, Naila Moon @Just the stuff ya know & myself want to invite you to step on the dance floor with the 4M crew.

This week’s Spotlight Dancer is in the #1 position of the link up. Be sure to stop by to boogie with our featured blogger, and don’t forget to link your 4M URL below to join in on the fun!



If you liked Red, White, and Blue, then you’re gonna wanna get to your feet for the complete album All Time Greatest Hits by Lynyrd Skynyrd!

 

Did you listen to the complete 14-YouTube playlist of All Time Greatest Hits? Awesome, right? I found another good music compilation: First The Complete Muscle Shoals Album.

(FIX)

 

 I’m gonna wrap things up with another great Southern Rock band and perhaps my personal favorite. Warning, you may find it hard to sit in your seat, as you listen to the full album Greatest Hits by ZZ Top.

 

Did you have a good time on the dance floor? I did. Why not show some blog love? Invite your friends to hit the dance floor with the 4M crew now. There’s always room for one more!

Today, I’m spending time with DH. Not to worry, I will dance with you tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what music moves you! Don’t forget to join me each week for Saturday Song-suasion!

Window Box in North Carolina inspires All I Can Do Is Write About song

Image captured with Canon SD880 of Dan’l Boone Inn in Boone, NC

 

The “Window Box” photo inspired this morning’s Wayback Wednesday music choice. This 70s American rock band has deep, deep southern grass roots and it’s clearly obvious in a many of their songs. This song speaks to me today with the lines of:

Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina 
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennessee

“All I Can Do Is Write About It” lyrics

Well this life that I’ve lead has took me everywhere
There ain’t no place I ain’t never gone
But its kind of like the saying that you heard so many times
Well there just ain’t no plae like home
Did you ever see a she-gator protect her young
Or a fish in a river swimming free
Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennessee
And Lord I can’t make any changes
All I can do is write ’em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes

Do you like to see a mountain stream a-flowin’
Do you like to see a youngun with his dog
Did you ever stop to think about, well, the air your breathin’
Well you better listen to my song
And Lord I can’t make any changes
All I can do is write ’em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes

I’m not tryin’ to put down no big cities
But the things they write about us is just a bore
Well you can take a boy out of ol’ Dixieland
But you’ll never take ol’ Dixie from a boy
And Lord I can’t make any changes
All I can do is write ’em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes
‘Cause I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes

Angela from Mommy Time Out and I want to thank you for joining us for another edition of Wayback Wednesday.  We hope you’ll come back for more memories shared through music and photos.  I’ll be popping over to your place soon!

I’m linking today’s Window Box photo contribution on some of these linky parties!
