Monday's Music Moves Me: Sept. 19, 2011 ~ Songs from the Year I was Born... Can You Guess What Year?



Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDollyCallie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. This week's theme, thanks to one of our constant supporters and participants, Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog, is Songs from the Year you Were Born.

I have mentioned how old I am in the past on my blog, on FB and on Twitter, but I'm not going to tell you what year I was born in this post, let's see if you can guess by the songs I post. This first song is done by a group that I have been lucky enough to see in concert...

You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling ~ The Righteous Brothers

I have also seen this group in concert FIVE times and love this song, they sing it with such enthusiasm and the audience gets excited and sings along so loud... just don't get mad at me if you are singing it ALL DAY LONG.....

I'm Henry The VIII, I Am ~ Herman's Hermits

This next song is one that reminds me of Bill and me when we first got together and we didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. I was only working part-time with 2 little boys to raise and he was working and paying alimony. We lived in a four-room basement apartment with almost no furniture (we watched TV on an air mattress that doubled as a bed for the boys along with their sleeping bags), but we had each other and that was enough for us.....

I Got You Babe ~ Sonny and Cher

I love this next song and singers both when then sing together and as solo artists. I wish I could see them in concert someday. This song is one of my favorites that they do.....

Sound of Silence ~ Simon and Garfunkel

And finally, the following song was #1 on the charts the week I was born, December 7th. I have always loved this song and my dad loved music so this song was probably playing all the time while my mother was pregnant and right after I was born.....

Turn! Turn! Turn! ~ The Byrds

Now, can you guess what year I was born in??? Leave your guess in your comment, please.

I've been in love with You've Lost that Lovin Feeling and Sound of Silence since I was little. I still love them songs. Thanks for featuring them. They brought back memories!

LOVE your choices, especially the Righteous Brothers! :) I'm gonna guess you were born in 1965? December 7th, eh? I think I remember that you are a December Baby just like me - December 9th for me! :)

I’m Gonna Getcha Good when you Fall Into Me in a Landslide because I’m Blessed – MMMM

All those songs are LEGEN...wait for it....DARY!

For sure. Such awesome choices.

Barbara said...

if I remember correctly 1966!

Unknown said...

I love all those songs! And judging from the comments we were born very close to each other. (I'm July 1965)

dollycas aka Lori said...

You are a little younger than me and I love all these songs!!!


Lucy said...

I love Lost that Loving Feeling ( I must confess I know it more from Top Gun and I have never known who the original singers were). Anyway, I love all our choices. It looks like we are close in age because I think these songs are around the time I was born 1965 or 1966?? I was in October of 1965!

XmasDolly said...

EN-ER-REE!! OMG Such nostalgic memories! Cher has totally changed. Ahhh the power of surgery! LOL I saw the Righteous Brothers perform in my hometown at the Paramount theater. What a show that was! Thanks for sharing hun! Great Post today! Love it! What a fun theme!

Colette S said...

Tesa @ 2 Wired 2 Tired said...

Love those songs! I used to work in health food store right out of college and they played most of those all the time. I'm going to guess 1966 as well.

Amanda said...

A lot of good songs! I'm not going to guess the year, but you were born during a good week ;) I was the week following, and a few years later.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I say it was a very good year!
