Monday's Music Moves Me: Aug. 29, 2011 ~ This Weather Sucks!!



Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDolly, Larry from Cakeblast, Callie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. This week is FREEBIE WEEK, so you can post anything that moves you!

Since so many of us have been facing such really crappy weather over the last week - earthquakes, hurricanes, and even tornadoes, I decided to post some songs about the weather. So with my prayers and hugs going out to all of you in the storms path, here are my choices for this week.....

Hurricane ~ Bob Dylan
**NOTICE: This has some lyrics that may be objectionable to some people**

Riders on the Storm ~ The Doors

The Unicorn Song ~ The Irish Rovers

Goodnight Irene ~ Nat King Cole

So what's moving you today? Write up a post and let us know... Here is all 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, grab their buttons too when you visit them and show them some love by leaving a comment.. (mine is on my right sidebar above the 4M button)

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!

Once you write up your post, link up with us (on any of the host's blog - they are all connected) and you may be chosen as our SPOTLIGHT DANCERS like this week's lucky couple in our #1 and #2 linky spots.....

Stacey of ArtSnark's Artifacts ~~ and ~~ Denise of RunDMT


If you are one of the lucky ones who is chosen for our spotlight dance, don't forget to grab the Spotlight Dancer Button from Dolly's right sidebar and proudly display it on your blog... WooHoo!

Spotlight Dancers

Now, don't forget to sign the linky, visit the participants, and leave a comment - you know you like them, so does everyone else. For more Monday music fun, visit Lady Estrogen and my friend Denise at Run DMT.



We're 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. Thank you for your understanding. We will not follow you and we will not promote your blog!

*** 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 a disclaimer BEFORE the video. 
Thank you very much!***

Riders on the Storm was an EXCELLENT pic for the weather the East coast has been having! I will be singing that song in my head all day! Thanks for the smiles!

Strangely I've never heard any of these, but I love that Bob Dylan song!

And way to steal my theme you clever lady...

Stacy Uncorked said...

HA! I love it! Two great minds - and I almost posted some of those, but when hubby suggested them, I said you'd probably be posting them...and I was right! ;) Have a great week, Lorie!

Tryin' to Reason with Hurricane Season that Rocks You - Good Night Irene!

I love Nat King Cole. Just right.
Thanks for sharing your music!

Lucy said...

Love the wide variety! Dylan, Irish Singers and Nat King Cole!! Oh, The Doors!! A friend in High School LOVED The Doors and we had to listen to Riders in the Storm all the time in carpool, I mean until we were sick of it LOL. Now, with time I can enjoy it again!!

Oh, and while listening to the music I read the Brownie Oreo recipe, yummy!!!

I love THE UNICORN SONG!!! I haven't heard that in many many many years!!!! It is going to be in my head all day and am adding it to my facebook page!!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Yet again you pick the best songs. These remind me of my dad when I was young. These were the songs we always listened to. Great choices :)

Bibi @ Bibi's Culinary Journey said...

My father in law is a big Irish Rovers fan so he plays them every time we visit.

XmasDolly said...

You go girl! What marvelous picks! Love them all - have a great day! I knew you'd have something tremendous, you soooooooooooooo ROCK!
