Welcome to 2012's Monday's Music Moves Me!!! We are going to make this meme SPECTACULAR this year!! But of course, we cannot do that without all of you... so come on share your music with us and get your friends to share with us, too. Our fearless leader is none other that the sweetest and most wonderful Marie of XmasDolly. Helping her keep this train running are ME, my dear friend Stacy of Stacy Uncorked and the lovely Callie of Jamerican Spice. We will also have some helpers along the way when we need to because life is.... well, life!
Here is what you need to do to play along.....

Today's theme is Songs played at your wedding (or the year of your wedding). If not married your favorite song when you were 21 - so pick your songs, write up your post and share with us because we love music and we love you all.
Bill and I got married in 1997, and as you can see by the invitation above, (were you surprised by the Mickey and Minnie on it???) Nikolaus and Alexander gave me away...
Here are some songs from our wedding and our love story.
The first song we ever danced to and we played during our wedding.....
Wonderful Tonight ~ Eric Clapton
This is another song that means a lot to both of us and we danced to at our wedding.....
Because You Loved Me ~ Celine Dion
This song is "our song" - it says everything that Bill and I mean to each other and it is the first song that we danced to at our wedding.....
I'll Always Be Right There ~ Bryan Adams
Our first dance:
Then by the end of the night, we were partying to rock and roll (would you expect any less from me) with all our friends.....
You Shook Me All Night Long ~ AC/DC
Now, you know there were a couple Elvis songs during the wedding, too, but since I did a complete post to him last week, I decided not to post any this week. =)
What did you play at your wedding? What are your memories? Once you write up your post, don't forget to sing the linky (on any of the host's blog - they are all connected) and you may be chosen as our SPOTLIGHT DANCERS like this week's lucky couple in our #1 and #2 linky spots.....
Don't forget... if you are one of the lucky ones chosen for our spotlight dance, you get to grab the Spotlight Dancer Button from Dolly's right sidebar and proudly display it on your blog... WooHoo!
Now, don't forget to sign the linky, visit the participants, and leave a comment - you know you like them, so does everyone else. For more Monday music fun, visit Lady Estrogen and my friend Denise at Run DMT
ROCK ON MY FRIENDS
I'm 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.
*** 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 disclaimer BEFORE the video.
Thank you very much!***
