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. 😉

 

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!

3-Way “Take It Easy” #BoTB showdown

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

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.  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),  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.  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.  What do you think?

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 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!

 

What mewsic moves you today? ?

I hope to see back tomorrow for a bit of randomness in my newest edition of Cathy Chats with 5 Ways to Take it Easy plus more mewsic with Tuesday Tunesation!

Catch ya on the flip-side, Mr. Frey

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Last week this time I said my good-byes to David Bowie when NBC News was the bearer of more bad news with the Eagles founding band member, Glenn Frey died text alert popped on my iPhone. No doubt Heartache Tonight kinda night for fans around the world after hearing the news.

 

Frey co-wrote Heartache Tonight with Don Henley, Bob Seger, and J.D. Souther; the song released in the same year I got married 1979 and hit the Billboard 100 Hot hits at #1 in November of that year.

The 70s was a good decade for The Eagles and Glenn Frey. Lyin’ Eyes, Frey’s #2 hit reminds me of a cheatin’, no-good, two-timing scoundrel who I once called my boyfriend. What can I say I was young and stupid, mostly too young to see it coming.

Bad things have a way of turning into good things. Before long I got a Peaceful Easy Feeling after meeting DH, my True Love.

 

In our early years of marriage, Frey’s hit songs popped up in movies and TV shows that repeatedly played on radio stations everywhere.

This song was a stand-alone sensation at #2 on the charts. You might know it best from Beverly Hills Cop, though. Let’s flashback to 1984 with The Heat is On

 

Do you remember Frey appearing on the first episode of Miami Vice? That show had the same name as his Billboard Hot 100 hit, Smuggler’s Blues. No question most of us remember that tune, if not all of us, but my favorite song from the TV series soundtrack charted #2 on the 1985 Billboard Hot 100 list. Can you guess what it is? If you said, You Belong to the City, then you’re right!

The world has lost a few exceptional music talents this month and the year is still young. I reckon we’ll see more departures before it ends, but the good thing is we live in an age where audio (and video) files are carefully preserved for future enjoyment. Instead of saying goodbye, I am going to say, I’ll catch ya on the flip-side, Mr. Frey!

What is your favorite Glenn Frey song?

I’m keeping this party going. Who wants to join me? Get your ticket now cause I’m fixing to board the Love Train where the celebration begins with the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew!

#Music Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Series Part II @XmasDolly

 

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! February is the month of love, and we typically think romance with Cupid sporting hearts to pierce with his arrow. But, heart breaks are also found in February and we all know nothing hurts like a romantic break up, but a band breakup?! Well…that’s a double heart breaker ~ for the group and their fans. This morning, I’m continuing to share hits of a one the messiest band breakups mentioned in Rolling Stone’s 2013 article in my addition of Breaking up is hard to do series part II with…
