Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDolly, Callie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. This week's theme, thanks to one of our constant supporters and participants, Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog, is Songs from the Year you Were Born.
I have mentioned how old I am in the past on my blog, on FB and on Twitter, but I'm not going to tell you what year I was born in this post, let's see if you can guess by the songs I post. This first song is done by a group that I have been lucky enough to see in concert...
You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling ~ The Righteous Brothers
I have also seen this group in concert FIVE times and love this song, they sing it with such enthusiasm and the audience gets excited and sings along so loud... just don't get mad at me if you are singing it ALL DAY LONG.....
I'm Henry The VIII, I Am ~ Herman's Hermits
This next song is one that reminds me of Bill and me when we first got together and we didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. I was only working part-time with 2 little boys to raise and he was working and paying alimony. We lived in a four-room basement apartment with almost no furniture (we watched TV on an air mattress that doubled as a bed for the boys along with their sleeping bags), but we had each other and that was enough for us.....
I Got You Babe ~ Sonny and Cher
I love this next song and singers both when then sing together and as solo artists. I wish I could see them in concert someday. This song is one of my favorites that they do.....
Sound of Silence ~ Simon and Garfunkel
And finally, the following song was #1 on the charts the week I was born, December 7th. I have always loved this song and my dad loved music so this song was probably playing all the time while my mother was pregnant and right after I was born.....
Turn! Turn! Turn! ~ The Byrds

We're very sorry to say there are some people not playing along just using our linky to get traffic for their blogs! Unfortunately, these bloggers will be marked and ignored, you will not get any benefit from our linky, so don't bother. All we ask is that you leave a comment, grab our button, ad/or follow us. If you don't want to post a video, you can post a link to a video, or post some lyrics, but please - at least attempt to make it music related. Thank you for your understanding. We will not follow you and we will not promote your blog!
*** Just one more thing...
PLEASE, we are family friendly blogs and while we really don't want to censor anyone,
but we do ask that you keep your songs rated PG13 or less.
If you find that you need to post songs of an explicit sexual nature or language,
please find a different venue. If your song does contain a small amount of questionable language, please put a disclaimer BEFORE the video.
Thank you very much!***
