Monday's Music Moves Me ~ Gone But Not Forgotten



Holy cow... can you believe that it's only TWO weeks until our 100th week Grand Gala Giveaway??

Don't forget to enter for some totally awesome prizes!!

Welcome to 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 is Gone But Not Forgotten week! Songs from singers that we have lost within the last six month, all too soon in my opinion.

Daydream Believer ~ Davy Jones

I've Gotta Get a Message to You ~ Robin Gibb

At Last ~ Etta James

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, if we can't find your email address easily, you'll miss out. During our Grand Gala Giveaway, we are only featuring ONE spotlight dancer who will be in #7 this week (sorry you're so far down), and our fabulous dancer this week is the one and only:

Gillian of A Daft Scots Lass


Now I know Gillian has been in our spotlight before, so I'm sure she proudly displays her badge telling everyone she was chosen as our winner. For everyone else chosen, 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, and the rest of the ladies' blogs to enter our Grand Gala Giveaway!!!

We have lost some incredible talent this year! I totally forgot about Davy Jones! Man, I loved The Monkees. I need to watch that with my kids.

So glad you included Etta James too. She didn't receive enough attention when she passed.

Great picks for a tribute!

Stacy Uncorked said...

I had a feeling you'd pick those artists - awesome choices! What? No Elvis? Are you feeling OK? (grin!) Don't worry, I made sure to include The King just for you. ;) Have a great week! :)

Our Day Will Come so I Wanna Dance With Somebody at Heartbreak Hotel but not Nasty Dan because Some Things Never Change when you’re Hooked On An 8 Second Ride

Simply Being Mommy said...

Love, love, love Etta James. Now I'm going to have the song stuck in my head all day ;-)

Great choices, there are way too many choices. Have a great week!!

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

I've already seen a Davy Jones pick, so I have a feeling he's going to be a popular one for this week's theme! Can't say I've heard of #2, but I HAVE heard of #3 and I love that song; so soulful!

Great picks as always :)

Have a musical week my CA!
