Monday's Music Moves Me ~ In Memory of Sue, Friends Forever



Holy cow... can you believe that it's week 99 of Monday's Music Moves Me??? One one more week 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 FREEBIE week! Since today would have been my best friend Sue's birthday (I wrote a tribute post yesterday, if you'd like to know about her) and I miss her terribly, I decided to post some songs in her memory.....
You're My Best Friend ~ Queen

Next is one of the ugliest rockers ever, but MAN can he sing!! BTW, check out who is on drums for this particular performance - the Queen of England's Golden Jubilee......

With a Little Help From my Friends ~ Joe Cocker

This next band was Sue's favorite and this song in particular was her favorite. We would have our monthly girls night out to get.....

Comfortably Numb ~ Pink Floyd

Happy birthday Sue, you were always my best friend, I will never forget you, I miss you dearly, and you will always be in my heart. Thirty years is a lot of memories to keep.

So, what's moving you this week? I can't wait to hear what you post. 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 visible 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 Spotlight Dancers to be in the lucky #1 and #2 spots of 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; and our fabulous dancer this week is:

Annie of Annie's Home

I was wondering why the second song sounded so familiar, then I remembered it was the theme song of an old school television show, The Wonder Years. Good show :)

These are all beautiful picks in memory of such a dear friend. What a great tribute!

Have a musical week :)

Cathy Kennedy said...

Joe Cocker is one of my favorites. His voice and style are so unique. You're a great weekly dance partner! ^.^

Love all your choices, Lorie! So sorry about the loss of your friend - she's smiling down from heaven at the songs you've chosen for her memory. :) ((HUGZ!!))
