Monday's Music Moves Me ~ God Bless America



Welcome to our 96th 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 one of our original cohost's Larry of Cakeblast helping us out, so don't forget to go visit him and follow his blog also!

This week in honor of Independence Day, our theme is Patriotic Songs, which are some of my favorite songs. I cannot wait to hear what you have posted this week.  Here's what I've chose for this week.....

U.S. National Anthem ~ The Academy Choirs

You knew I would include a song by the king, of course.....

America the Beautiful ~ Elvis Presley

God Bless America ~ Celine Dion

Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly ~ Aaron Tippin

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 One: Head on over to You Tube, pick your videos and post them on your blog! Upcoming themes are to you LOWER RIGHT of XmasDolly'sblog.

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

Step Three: 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 2 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.

Each week we've been having a random drawing of all our participants to be our 2 Spotlight Dancers; and they are in the lucky #1 and #2 spots in our linky.  Marie has been trying each week to reach the Spotlight Dancers via email, but many of you don't have your email address available on your blog. I have also tried to help her a couple of times and we have left messages on all forms of social media for our wonderful players.  Soooo, this week is the last week that we will have two Spotlight Dancers and featured in spots #1 and #2 are:

Steve of bethere2day ~~ and ~~ Amethyst Moon of TamingTampa


Starting next week..... we have decided to SURPRISE YOU when you come by to sign the linky. Make sure you CHECK OUT spot #1 - the Spotlight Dancer could be YOU!  There will be only one chosen each week by!

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 let's go everyone... post your songs, link up, tell your friends, and don't forget to head on over to Dolly's blog, plus the rest of the ladies' blog to enter our Grand Gala Giveaway!!!  Good luck everyone!


*** Just one more thing...
PLEASE remember we are family friendly blogs
and while we do not wish to censor anyone,
we do ask that you keep your songs rated PG13 or less.
If you find that you need to post songs with explicit sexual content or language,
please find a different venue.
If your song does contain a small amount of questionable language,
please put a disclaimer BEFORE the video.
Thank you very much!***

Wishing you all a very happy and safe holiday with your friends and loved ones.
And as always... please say a prayer for our troops who are away from their families fighting for our freedoms so that we can celebrate.
Wishing that they will all be home safely soon.
God bless them all and God bless America!

Hey-you just exude patriotism with this blog!
That last song I had never heard and I really liked it. It also showed my beloved Arch-awesome!

I definitely enjoyed your selections this week Lorie, but what else is new because you pick some of the greatest songs ;)

You can't go wrong with a little Elvis, a little Celine...I haven't heard of Aaron Tippin before, so thank you for introducing him!

Have a musical week ^.^

Great patriotic picks, and I love that you squeezed Elvis in again. Have a happy 4th, my friend! :-) xox

Aaron Tippin is new to me, but like this song lots! Patriotic week really rocks! Fabulous selections to show your your blood runs red, white, and blue! Let freedom rock n' roll! ^.^

I don't think I've ever heard the Aaron Tippin song - but I'm not too much country. I like it though.

Martha Kasper said...

Great choices! I used to love me some Aaron Tippin.. I forgot about him!
Missing Disney! Loved spending at least part of 4th of July at Magic Kingdom!!!! Tara and I watched a Naturalization Ceremony there one year, it was very moving!

Just loved all of the songs. The first is the most beautiful version of the National Anthem that I have ever heard. Thanks so much for sharing these. They make me feel proud to be an American.
