Monday's Music Moves Me: 12/4/2011 ~ Christmas is Getting Closer!



Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDolly, Callie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. We are entering into the holiday season, so from now until the end of December, we will be posting Christmas Songs!!  WooHoo, my favorite kind of music, I could listen to it all year long, so it's hard for me to pick which ones I want to post each week.... hmmmmm!

Well, I think I'll start this week with a soft and sweet song.....

Silent Night ~ Olivia Newton John

Now I have to feature one to make you smile (of course).....

Ode to Joy ~ Featuring Beeker of the Muppets

Here is another song from one of my favorite groups this time of year, they sound AWESOME and they are also going to make you smile... isn't that what Christmas is all about?

12 Days of Christmas ~ Straight No Chaser

Of course, you know I have to have a rocked out version of a Christmas song, so here is a really cool one that also fulfills my Disney fantasy......

Nightmare Before Christmas Carol of the Bells - Trans-Siberian Orchestra (I've actually seen them, too!)

And, last, but NEVER least, you know I have to leave you with my favorite.....

Santa Claus is Back in Town ~ Elvis Presley

So those are my songs for the week... there will be more next Monday, what songs have put you in the holiday mood??? 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.....

We're very sorry to say there are some people not playing along just using our linky to get traffic for their blogs!

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.

*** 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!***

What wonderful choices those are. I thoroughly enjoyed them all. I'm a bit of an Elvis fan myself. Have a great week.

Ode to Joy by the Muppets did make me smile. I haven't listened to Olivia Newton John in awhile, thanks for featuring her. 12 Days of Christmas - how fun! Nice nice selection.

Colette S said...

I love your songs and it made me smile to see the man in there :) The man of course Mr Elvis :)

It's your birthday? Or is it Thursday?

Happy birthday celebrations!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Every single one of those are awesome, Lorie! :) Love them all!

And Happy (early) Birthday to my December baby buddy! You beat me to the punch by one day. ;)

Christmas Don’t Be Late for the fun Up On The Housetop and the Ringing Of The Bells

Run DMT said...

Of course, you would include the King in your Christmas picks! ;-) Do you ever make it over to this area? The Shops of Wiregrass host The Symphony of Lights every Christmas which is a light show choreographed to Trans Siberian Orchestra. It's pretty cool.

Michelle aka Naila Moon said...

Bwa ha ha ha-I love the Muppetts! Made me smile. Oh and Straight No Chaser, so good!

I love Olivia Newton John. She is a class act and it just wouldn't be Christmas without a little Elvis, now would it?
