Monday's Music Moves Me: 03/05/2012 ~ I Have the Greatest Friends



Hey, lookie everyone.... I'm back!! YAY.... I missed you all so much, but I had a terrific month off and did some great things with my hubby. A few I've already posted about and some more that I still have to post. I'm still editing photos and will get the posts up as soon as I can. So now, on with our music post....

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 (mine is on my right sidebar above the 4M button) and show them some love by leaving a comment.

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 WEEK so pick whatever songs are on your mind, write up your post and share with us because we love music and we love you all. I want to dedicate these songs to the wonderful ladies who filled in for me during the month of February here on our Monday's Music Meme while I was busy... the fantabulistic Denise of RunDMT and Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog - you ladies ROCK!! Thank you so much and I lubs you!

With a Little Help From My Friends ~ The Beatles

You Got a Friend in Me ~ Randy Newman

You've Got a Friend ~ James Taylor and Carole King

And one final song for this week to honor one of my favorite singers who has been taken from us much too soon... Davy Jones. I've have gone to see him every year at EPCOT during the Flower and Garden Fest since we moved down here. He was always the last performer at the Flower Power concert series and I have him in my calendar for this May already. I just don't have the heart to take him out of my book. So in honor of Davy, I give you....

Daydream Believer ~ The Monkees

I hope you enjoyed these songs, and 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.....

 ~~ and ~~


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 my friend Denise at Run DMT.


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!***
