Monday's Music Moves Me: 1/2/2012 ~ Duets for the New Year


Here I go again, messing up on the day again.
What a way to start off the new year. I swear I'll be better next week.
I forgot yesterday was Sunday, so I'm late again....


Welcome to 2012's Monday's Music Moves Me!!! We are going to make this meme SPECTACULAR this year!!  But of course, we cannot do that without all of you... so come on share your music with us and get your friends to share with us, too. Our fearless leader is none other that the sweetest and most wonderful Marie of XmasDolly. Helping her keep this train running ar ME, my dear friend Stacy of Stacy Uncorked and the lovely Callie of Jamerican Spice.  We will also have some helpers along the way when we need to because life is.... well, life!

Here is what 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!

Today's theme, chosen by our very own Stacy, is "Duets" - so pick your songs, write up your post and share with us because we love music and we love you all.

Here is what I have been grooving to today:

This is such a beautiful song and it reminds me of the Community Chorus I belonged to in Connecticut when I lived up there. I dedicate it to my dear friend, Betsy who was in the Chorus with me and unexpectedly lost her life on Monday, Dec. 26th - Rest in Peace, Betsy, I love you and you will be missed.....

The Prayer ~ Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli

Another beautiful one .....

I'm your Angel ~ Celine Dion and R Kelly

..... and of course I had to get back to my roots with my all time favorite:

In the Ghetto ~ Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley

Now, once you write up your post, don't forget to sing the linky (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.....

 ~~ and ~~
(who by the way are a married couple - how cool is that!!)


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

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.


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!***

I love that Celine and RKelly one too. I haven't heard it in many a while.

Very nice selections.

Happy New Year!

Very much worth waiting for. I never heard Lisa & Elvis version. I did hear the other two, but I'm partial to The Prayer! Great job my friend - glad you made it. We have one new follower so don't forget to follow her. Guess there's a lot people taking down decorations today, so there's not that many to visit. :( Going back to bed now. hugzzzzzzzz

The Prayer is a wonderful song. Friends of mine had it sung at their wedding.
Happy New Year!

In The Ghetto - one of a handful of Elvis songs I really like.

Good picks and a nice tribute. Happy New Year!
