X marks the spot in #music #AprilA2Z

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

I interrupt the regular program to bring you this special announcement….  I preëmpt all routine posts to bring you my contributions to this month’s largest blogging event. Don’t worry, normal posting will resume next month like clock work (I hope). Meanwhile, I invite you to stick around to enjoy the #AprilA2Z with X marks the spot in #music!

There are few songs and fewer still artists that begin with the letter “X”. I could have bombarded you with some of my favorite Xmas songs, but then you just hate me for that. So, instead I’m featuring two new-to-me X-bands that I found (Bands Beginning with “X”) this morning.

The first group perked my interest with their 70s band sound, if you like that sort of music then give a listen to the rock band, Xguru!




The next x act to follow is a female R&B quartet from the Atlanta, Georgia area that had 6 Top 10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 list during the ’90s. Let’s give it up for,  Xscape!


Songs that start with “X” aren’t many, either. I did stumbled upon a few familiar artists, but only one song I liked enough to share. I give you Debbie Harry performing the 1976 song cut, X Offender!


What “X” song title or groups can you share with us today?

U is in yoU, which makes you, U #music #AprilA2Z

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! I’m Under a dark Cloud (The Bangles) and I feel like climbing Under the Sheets (Ellie Goulding) till the crisis is over, but there’s no place to hide. Not Under the Boardwalk (The Drifters) or Under the Sea (Disney) or Under the Moonlight (Grayson Kessenich) or Under the Stars (Morning Parade). I just gotta get out there Under the Sun (Michael Weatherly) to get from out of the sense I’m Under Attack (Abba).

Why the urgency? Up until now, I kept ahead of the daily #AprilA2Z prompt, but it finally caught up with me and now I’m feeling Under Pressure (Queen) to get my mojo juices working. U inspired me!


Now, forget understanding this little ditty because it’s simply a fun, catchy number and in my book that makes it a winner! U inspire me (like yoU always do) and this morning, I want to say…U is in yoU, which makes yoU, YOU.

What makes yoU, YOU? For me, it’s mUsic! Throughout this challenge, I shared with yoU my daily mUsic choice. This is my utopia!

The first group I thought of was U2. I was pleasantly surprised when in October 2014 Apple launched the global rock band’s Songs of Innocence (click the link to listen) newest album to 500 million iTunes users for free. How utterly insane is that? I loved it! There are a couple of good tracks (The Miracle is my fave) on this cut and I hope yoU listen to decide for yoUrself.

Now, let’s flashback (coz I can’t forget my Flashback Friday edition) wayback!

DH and I were dating. He was a senior and I was a freshman in high school. I vividly remember this song coming out and no doubt played at DH’s senior prom. Do yoU remember it?

O’Day described this tune as a Nocturnal Novelette. It was put out without fanfare in February 1977. Four months later, it was the #1 song in the country, and certified gold.

As A2Z unwinds, just know I’ll be keeping the mUsic alive on my blog three days a week and I hope yoU will continue to join me. Before you go, tell us, what song describes yoU (or your life) in a nutshell?
