Monday's Music Moves Me: 4/16/2012 ~ All About Cars



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! This month the lovely Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog will be our cohost. Dolly will chose one each month, if you'd like to help, please let one of us know.

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!

This week's theme is FREEBIE! We went to Celebration's Annual Exotic Car Show this weekend and saw some AWESOME cars, including the largest collection of Ferraris and DeLoreans in one place, plus cars from TV and movies.

It is the 5th largest and respected exotic car show in the U.S. It is held for charity, including Special Olympics. There are several celebrities who show up for the events during the entire weekend. Because of all the fabulous cars that we saw, I am focusing on songs that feature cars this week... hope you enjoy my songs and some photos from the show......


Little Deuce Coupe ~ The Beach Boy

This one is a dedication to my hubby, Bill, he owned a 1965 (the year I was born, TeeHee) gold GTO, marker number EP69... Here's to you sweetie!

Little GTO ~ Ronnie and The Daytonas

Dead Man's Curve ~ Jan and Dean

Little Old Lady from Pasadena ~ Jan and Dean

This one is actually about a motorcycle rider, but I love this song.....

Leader of The Pack ~ Shangri-Las

So now pick your songs, write a post and don't forget to add it to one of the linky's - there is one on each of the hosts' blog. We can't wait to hear your songs, plus you might be chosen as our Spotlight Dancer and be in the #1 or 2 linky spot, like this weeks spotlight winners.

Shary of Shary Loves You ~~ and ~~ Amber of JadeLouise Designs


Don't forget to grab the Spotlight Dancer button from XmasDolly's blog and proudly display it on your blog showing everyone that you were picked!

Now, go on and post your songs... get your friends to post their favorite songs and link up so we all can hear them... and have a musical Monday.


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!***

Those are some oldies, but very goodies! You go girl. Love the choices. Have a great day.

Stacy Uncorked said...

Now that sounds like a fun weekend! Those cars are cool - as are your song choices. ;)

Springsteen with Boots On; Hey Pretty Girl Tonight Is The Night

Great theme for a non-theme week. There were a lot of car songs from the 60s. You blew me away with 'em!

Help, I've Gotta Boogie Fever!"

What a cool car show! My kids would flip over the Ghostbusters and Flintstones car. I love how you tied your Music Monday picks into a car theme. :-)

JamericanSpice said...

I'd love to be able to drive those vehicles. It's amazing they are still about.
Glad you had a great weekend.

Very nice mixing of the music with the theme.

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

Okay, that is just too COOL! My boyfriend would be ALL over that; his favorite movie of all time is Back to the Future. LOL

Those actually look like the exact cars that are in a local car museum located about 10 minutes away from where I live. I swear, if you didn't know that place was there, you'd totally miss it!

You've got some great picks to go along with your fabulous theme this week :)

Have a musical week!

The guy who lives across the street from us has two 'Hot Rods' and he goes to car shows all the time. His cars are gorgeous, I just love it when he brings them out 'to play'! I loved your songs, "Leader of the Pack" was my favorite :)

Oh, these great old songs! Love them all, thanks for sharing them.
