Monday's Music Moves Me: 1/9/2012 ~ In Honor of the King

.


Photobucket


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.....
 
 
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.

Third step: SIGN THE LINKY - Follow your hosts (we will all follow you and try to comment each week), grab their buttons too when you visit them and show them some love by leaving a comment.. (mine is on my right sidebar above the 4M button)

Final step: Go visit the other Rockers on our Linky and PLEASE show them some love by leaving them a comment, you know you like comments, they do too!


Today's theme is FREEBIE, you get to choose anything you've been groovin' to - so pick your songs, write up your post and share with us because we love music and we love you all.


Today, I am choosing to honor the King of Rock and Roll because yesterday would have been his 77th birthday (of course you know I did a post on that). So to the man who is my favorite singer of all time, a tribute... Rest in peace and know we will never forget you!

I Want You, I Need You, I Love You




You Don't Have to Say You Love Me





She's Not You




..... and one of my favorites, plus he is wearing the black leather! {{{SWOON!!}}}


Can't Help Falling in Love




I hope you enjoyed my tribute to The King... Now, 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.....



Lucy of Lucy's Reality ~~ and ~~ Karen of If I Could Escape

CONGRATULATIONS!!

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!***

I totally knew you would share some songs by the King when Dolly mentioned it was his birthday! Great picks, mama! There are so many great songs, I bet it was hard for you to just pick three.

Thanks for the MM shout out! Have a great week! :-)

Elvis was awesome! I Can't Help Falling in Love is a beautiful song, isn't it? I think I like his studio recording better because it's a little slower in tempo, than his live performance. Still it's a nice song, though. Thanks for sharing!

Barb said...

Lorie, I would have never thought of picking Elvis!!! Too cool!!! He was a rocker, though! Thanks for sharing, my friend!

Barb said...

BTW, I lived in Tupelo, MS, many years ago, and saw the house the little house that he lived in. I also lived in Memphis before that!

Karen Mortensen said...

Good post today. I forgot about it being his birthday. That is a good idea. He was great. I don't know the first songs but the last one I know. It is one of my favorites.

Lucy said...

I loved your tribute to the King of Rock and Roll!!

I Can't Help Falling In Love is my favorite too and I always forget how gorgeous Elvis was until I see the videos or an old movie on TCM channel, he was soooooo good looking!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I remember playing the 4th one over and over and over!

JamericanSpice said...

I want Elvis to sing to me...wait. I guess he kinda is right :)

Love it.

No one compares to The King! :) LOVE all your choices, of course - my dad is a huge Elvis fan, so we heard all Elvis all the time growing up on my dad's reel-to-reel. ;)

Hi. Love those songs. I'm a new follower. :) Have a great day.

"You don't have to say you love me..." love that song. It's playing in my head right now. My parents like Elvis very much. I heard a lot of his music while growing up.
