Monday's Music Moves Me: Dec. 12, 2011 ~ Only Two Weeks Until Christmas!!



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!

The first two songs are from one of my favorite artists and I have both of her Christmas albums... I love her voice, her range is amazing and she can sing in FIVE different languages.....

O Come All Ye Faithful ~ Celine Dion

Don't Save it All for Christmas Day ~ Celine Dion

Of course my Elvis song for the week.....

Blue Christmas ~ Elvis Presley (in leather again... hmmmm)

And finally, my rock and roll Christmas tune for you all, enjoy.....

Let it Snow ~ Twisted Sister (sorry for the final image in the video, but everyone who has dealt with snow has felt like that at one time or another.)

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)

I'm 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.

*** 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!***

Rock on indeed. Love the Elvis one.

I bought the new Michael Bublé Christmas record yesterday and I love it.

Celin Dion is a fabulous singer. I've always enjoyed listening to her. Thanks for sharing all of your picks, even Twister Sister who I was really surprised to hear did a Christmas song. Not an exactly toasty cozy version, but it was fun to hear all the same. lol.

You have a great selection Lorie!
I love hearing Christmas in so many voices!

Stacy Uncorked said...

I didn't realize Celine can sing in 5 different languages!! Loving all of your choices, as usual! :)

Happy Birthday, Mikey! Here’s a Box of Rocks in this Winter Wonderland because Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Who? Santa Baby!

Great pics as always. Never can get enough of Elvis!!

Run DMT said...

I love Christmas music too and I have way too many favorites. I completely understand the difficulty you face when trying to pick one song to spotlight. It's not easy!

I did not know Celine Dion can sing in 5 languages. That's incredible! And of course, you included the King. Nice one!

I never heard that Twisted Sister version before. It's very different and the images were hilarious. :-D

Thanks for the MM plug too! Merry Christmas! :-)

I had never heard the second song by Celion Dion, her voice is so beautiful and what a great song! Love Elvis and I loved the Twisted Sister,even the end!!!!!

XmasDolly said...

I've never heard the second song either, but all wonderful choices as usual. Twisted Sister??? Okay never heard that one either & Elvis does not surprise me. Have a great day!

Barbara said...

I remember watching Celine Dion on the Disney Christmas special a year or two ago! Great choices, my friend! Though, I'm not a Twisted Sister fan!
