Which do you prefer, Driver’s Seat or being The Passenger? #4M

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens and dawgs! How was your weekend?ย  I can’t believe it’s Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer. In honor of our fallen heroes and their families, this song is for you.


Thank you for giving your all for this country and may God bless those you left behind! ๐Ÿ™

XmasDolly (Marie) is still sick as a dog and weak as a kitten after her bout with pneumonia but her dance partners Stacy, Colette, and I will do our best to hold things down. Hopefully, we can keep everyone off table tops and shirts on with no calls to police for disturbing the peace. Buckle up and enjoy the ride, this week’s theme is “SONGS ABOUT CARS/RIDING”!



I’d like to know, where is this year going?ย  It’s driving past us like a Fast Car, that’s what’s happening!

 

 

What did you do over the holiday weekend, anything special? Was it like Heaven’s in The Backseat of Cadillac (Hot Chocolate) or Highway to Hell (AC/DC)?

Did you spend time traveling? Which do you prefer the Driver’s Seat or being The Passenger?

 

 

 

I prefer taking in the drive instead of being behind the wheel but regardless of how you like to Ventura Highway, I hope you’ll decide to join the 4M gals on the dance floor!

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. Iโ€™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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!ย  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!

#1 Billboard Hot 100 Songs from 1961 #4M +#BoTB

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Thank you for joining me on the dance floor with “60s Rock Songs” requested by today’s Spotlight Dancer, Mike Golch. My first song selection was written by Gerry Coffin and Carole King and recorded by an all-girl band who took this single to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list in 1961 (the year I was born) from the “Tonight’s the Night” album, The Shirelles!

 

In keeping with my birth year, the next song to top the Billboard Hot 100 charts is a cover by the doo-wop band, The Marcels.

 

My last “60s Rock Song” from 1961 to soar to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 list is one of my favorites has an interesting history but I’ll save that for another time is, The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

 

 

I’m on a blog hiatus for the most part for the next couple of weeks but I’m committed toย  XmasDolly, Stacy, and Colette with co-hosting the best party dance party on the blockosphere.

 



While I have the old turntable spinning, let’s keep those feet happy with today’s #BoTB cover song!

Mike’s last week 4M playlist inspired this showdown. This 60s rock song topped the leader board in the USA (1964) and became the first hit for this British band, Dave Clark Five!

(reference only – not included)

This is gonna be a battle of the sexes. Female lead singer Vs Male lead singer, both new-to-me cover bands a bit edgier and heavier than I normally listen to but enjoyed.

 

Contender # 1 Suzi Quatro

 

Contender #2 TT Quick

ย 

Ok, hereโ€™s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DONโ€™T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional).

Which artist gets your vote โ€“ Suzi Quatro or TT Quick?

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.

What mewsic moves you today? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m “Taking It Easy” but I’ll get to you ASAP. Just leave a breadcrumb trail for me to follow in comments and I’ll find my way to your site soon. Have a groovy week, my friends and keep rockin’ on!

Singers/Mewsicians Celebrating Birthdays Today #4M

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.ย 

 

 

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.ย  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!ย  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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Before I go, let me announce last week’s BoTB winner in 3-Way “Take It Easy” showdown.ย  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.ย  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

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.ย  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),ย  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.ย  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.ย  What do you think?

Ok, hereโ€™s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DONโ€™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!
