Mewsic to honor my brothers and my sisters #4M

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Alrighty, I have some good mews for y’all. Our lovely Dancing Queen, Marie, will return to the dance floor today after being away for a few weeks fighting a battle with pneumonia. WOOT! WOOT! *applauds*

Okay, it’s time to have a little fun. Who says Mondays can’t be fun?  Lace up your blue suede shoes or kick ’em off to rock n’ roll in your socks.  In honor of Marie’s big brother’s birthday she suggested we go with the mewsic theme “Siblings Day“. Let’s get this party going!

I am the oldest of four.  My siblings are left to right: LilBro1, LilSis, and LilBro2.  I figured I would play mewsic from their birth years.

LilBro1 is my first cousin and his mother passed away when he was very young. I’m not speaking ill of the dead and I certainly do not understand the goings-on in my uncle’s head but he placed his children in the care of other family members or the state orphanage. My parents adopted him in the early 70s after LilSis was born. He had a sweet disposition and always willing to help me around the house. The week he was born in May 1965 this Beatle number one single made the Billboard Hot 100 Chart!

 

 

In a few days,  LilSis will celebrate 47 years. She was my living babydoll with more than nine years separating us. There wasn’t a song charting the week of her birth, so I went with the week before and according to Wikipedia climbing to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 Charts between May 30-June 6 was Ray Stevens’ Everything is Beautiful which describes my LilSis – beautiful!

 

 

LilBro2 and I were good buddies when we were small sharing everything together. This past April was his 51st birthday but he left us in 2006 to live in heaven. I’m sure the angels threw him a big bash. The week of his birthday April 14th this song ranked #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts.

 

 

Hold on to everything! I need to include the siblings I inherited when I married DH! I always felt like they are my brothers and sister. Family ties don’t need to be through blood but through love and I love each of them dearly. Hopefully, I’ll get the years right.

Photographed in the early 70s about 1973; pictured left to right are BIL2, BIL1, & SIL (married to BIL2)

I don’t know who snapped this shot. I suspect it was DH but I can’t swear to it. This scene is definitely a signature capture of these clowns and DH is just like his big brothers.

BIL1, born mid-November 1949,  this unfamiliar tune was a Billboards Best Sellers in Stores and Number One-Singles from October 1-November 19th.

 

The next hit is US Cash Box Best Selling Singles #1 Hit from December 30, 1950, through February 3, 1951, placing this song around the time of BIL2 birth. Wouldn’t you know it many years later, he’d find himself living in the very state mentioned in the song title.  Is it a coincidence or fate? 😉

 

Lastly, this popular song from 1955 (SIL birth year) was Best Sellers in Stores for the first three weeks in January and it’s a classic of the 50s.

 

 

 

Thank you for including the 4M gals in your day. Now, I invite you to hit the dance floor!



What mewsic do you think of when you think of your brother(s) or your sister(s)?

 

I’ll see you next week same time and place. Keep those tunes groovin’ and those toes movin’. It’s time for me to catch the flip side (translation: I’m heading your way) this is Curious as a Cathy signing off!

Revolution #BoTB showdown

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! It’s November. Election day is 7 days from now. Have you voted? Speaking of which I know some of you voted in my October 15th BoTB while I was on hiatus and I didn’t make it back to share the results.

In the Pink Moon #BoTB showdown, I asked you to pick your favorite artist between Meshell Ndegeocello and Walt Mink. The vote was tight. I went with Mink. I preferred his vocals and uptempo over his rival but in the end, Ndegeocello clinched the victory with only a two point lead.

 

I thought with the fate of America waiting in the balance on November 8th, I thought today’s BoTB song choice is a perfect fit, the Beatles Revolution (reference only, please don’t vote on the original version).

 

Contender #1 is an English Pop Supergroup started in 1985 by Genesis founding member, Mike Rutherford.

 

Contender #2 covers this popular song country-pop style.

 

Who gets your vote, Mike & The Mechanics or Rascal Flatts?

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). Are ya going with

The fun continues with more epic battles underway below.

I invite you to visit, Stephen (at the top of the list), if you’d like to know how this works and/or ask how to join all this madness fun.

A little later in the morning, I plan to throw together a Cathy Chats edition which is a first in a long time post and I’m joining some of my routine random blogging pals.

Have a terrific Tuesday!
