Monday's Music Moves Me: 4/2/2012 ~ Nostalgia



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! A friend of mine was talking about songs she remembered from when she was young and I loved lots of them, too. So that put me in a nostalgic mood for those songs, so I decided to post some of those for you to hear. Hope you like them.....

One Tin Soldier ~ The Original Caste

Where Have all the Flowers Gone ~ Joan Baez

Puff the Magic Dragon ~ Peter, Paul and Mary

... and finally a song from a band I am going to be seeing on April 14th at EPCOT:

Cherokee Nation ~ Paul Revere and the Raiders

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.

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!***

Whoaaaaa Those were sure some oldies, but goodies! Paul Revere & the Raiders I remember running home from school to see those guys & I saw them live in Vegas many years ago I believe they opened for the Four Seasons & Frankie Vali. I use to love those guys. I bet if you looked up folk music you would see Peter, Paul & Mary. Very cool choices. Haven't heard them in a long time. I'm back to transcribing so I'm running late today, so at least I'll get to see who's hoppin' around.

Nice post! Had to stop by and say hi. Took a bloggy hiatus. I think everyone has to every now and then. LOL

Great to see all has been well with you and yours!

Love and Prayers,
