Monday's Music Moves Me: 6/4/2012 ~ Goin' To The Chapel and We're Gonna Get Married



** This is week #92 of Monday's Music Moves Me... don't forget our Grand Gala Giveaway begins with week #95 - and you must be a participant and follower of all the hosts for at least  two weeks prior to the giveaway to participate! **

Welcome to our 92nd Monday's Music Moves Me!!! We want to make this one of the BEST meme's in all of Blogville, but we cannot do that without YOU.... so come share your music with us and bring your friends to share theirs with us, too!! 

Running this little dance party of ours is the sweetest and most wonderful Marie of XmasDolly. The cohosts helping to keep the party rockin' and rollin' are ME, Callie of JamericanSpice, Stacy of Stacy Uncorked, and our newest, and of course just as fabulous, Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog. Also, because life gets to be so hectic at times, we occasionally have one of our faithful followers/participants help us with our cohosting duties. This month, we have the lovely Naila Moon of Just The Suff Ya Know helping us out, so don't forget to go visit her and follow her blog also!

This week's theme is Wedding Songs - it doesn't have to be yours, just songs that are usually played at a wedding as the couple's "song."  I decided to pick one from each decade, so here's what I came up with.....

The 50's: Going to the Chapel ~ Dixie Cups

The 60's: Can't Help Falling in Love with You ~ Elvis
(Like you'd think I'd leave him out when love songs were involved)

The 70's: Annie's Song ~ John Denver

The 80's: Cherish ~ Kool and the Gang

The 90's: Because You Loved Me ~ Celine Dion
(This was Bill and my song... it holds a special place in my heart)

..... and finally,

The 2000's: You're Beautiful ~ James Blunt

Well, I hope you enjoyed my selections... I can't wait to hear what's moving you this week.

Here's all you need to do to play along:

Step 1 ~  Head on over to You Tube, pick your videos and post them on your blog! Upcoming themes are to you LOWER RIGHT of XmasDolly's blog.

Step 2 ~ Grab the 4M Button and the Hosts' Buttons and place them on your site... we all have them clearly visable on our sidebars.

Step 3 ~ Make sure you are following your hosts - either on GFC, Linky, via email, Twitter, etc. and we will follow you back. This one is really important if you want to participate in our Grand Gala Giveaway coming up in 3 weeks!!!

Final Step ~ Most important: SIGN the linky, visit the other participants AND LEAVE A COMMENT! You know you like comments, so do your fellow players.

Now lets get musical... every week we will have a random drawing for our spotlight dancers who will be in our #1 and #2 spots in the Linky, just like this weeks winners:

Larry of Cakeblast ~~ and ~~ Danielle of Royal Legacy


Don't forget, as a Spotlight Dancer, you can proudly display your badge telling everyone you were chosen as our winner. Go on over to XmasDolly's blog and grab the button to let everyone know just how special you are!

So.... come on everyone, post your songs, link up, and grab your friends and have the join the party.... tell them about the giveaway coming up, that should get their attention!


*** Just one more thing...
PLEASE, we are family friendly blogs
and while we really don't want to censor anyone,
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!***

These are some excellent wedding songs, Lorie! I remember singing along with Chapel of Love when I was a kid. It's a simple a song with a pretty melody! Thanks for bringing some memories back with these hits. Keep the groove a movin'!

Stacy Uncorked said...

When I saw the Elvis song on a 'most requested' list for weddings, I knew you'd probably pick that one! ;) LOVE all your choices, Lorie! Have a great week! :)

You Make Me Feel… I Don’t Want This Night To End so Tonight Is The Night – Marry Me, say I Do, Then let’s dance the Macarena

I love your choices through the decades. Great plan for the 4M's this week. I have heard of all of them except the last one.

My hubby is 8 years older than me. It does have its challenges at times. lol I loved reading your story though!
