Monday's Music Moves Me: Sept. 5, 2011 ~ Way Back to the Seventies



Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDolly, Larry from Cakeblast, Callie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. This week's theme, thanks to Naila Moon, is Songs from the Seventies.

I happen to think this is the BEST song of the 70's... the guitar work is just so awesome.....

Stairway to Heaven ~ Led Zeppelin

The next song is one of Bill's favorite, not to mention I love it too. You can't have songs of the 70's without having one by this fabulous artist, gone too soon.....

Imagine ~ John Lennon

Another artist that was taken from the world too soon.....

Me and Bobby McGee ~ Janis Joplin

The next song is one of my favorites and actually from the very first album I bought with my own money when I was a kid. However, I chose a video that always makes me smile.....

Bohemian Rhapsody - The Muppets (yep, you read that right!)

This last one is a little long but always makes me think of the 70's.

Free Bird ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd

So what's moving you today? Write up a post and let us know... Here is all you need to do to play along:

First step: Head on over to You Tube, or anywhere you get your music videos and post them on your blog! Upcoming themes are to you LOWER RIGHT of XmasDolly's blog.

Second Step: Grab our "Monday's Music Moves Me" Button, mine is on my right sidebar, or off of any of the hosts' sites.

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!***

Excellent choices, Lorie! I forgot all about Me and Bobby McGee! And the Muppets version of Bohemian Rhapsody cracked me up! :)

We Will Rock You with a Bohemian Rhapsody on the Stairway to Heaven in your Hotel California

I have officially heard Led Zeppelin for the first time, and thank you for that. (Yes, I've been living under a rock, and I'm too young to know about good music, and all that jazz.)

I'm loving these theme!
Rocking tunes hon!
HOpe you enjoyed your long weekend!

I used to hate (HATE!) 70s music. I don't know why, it was just an ugly decade to me. Ugly clothes too. But now, I'm only mildly annoyed by it and actually like some of the stuff. :)

Happy Labor Day to you, sweetie!

Run DMT said...

Love all of your picks! You did great mama with the 70s theme. Keep on rocking!

Cheryl said...

Those are some of my ultimate favourite songs. (Imagine, Freebird and Bohemian Rhapsody) makes me very happy that my girls know the lyrics to them!!

Maria said...

Imagine and Bohemian Rhapsody are my favorites. :)
