Monday's Music Moves Me: 1/30/2012 ~ On Broadway



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 are 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!

First things first this week... Wishing our very own Callie a very Happy Birthday!!  HUGGLES....

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 (we will all follow you and try to comment each week), grab their buttons too when you visit (mine is on my right sidebar above the 4M button)  and show them some love by leaving a comment

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 is BROADWAY MUSICALS so pick whatever songs are on your mind, write up your post and share with us because we love music and we love you all.  Here are the songs that I love from some musicals that I have seen or would LOVE to see......

Seasons of Love ~ RENT (This one I saw, LOVE this song!!)

Hello Dolly ~ Carol Channing
(I have seen this one with the GREAT Carol Channing, herself - it was AWESOME!!)

Wells Fargo Wagon ~ The Music Man (with a very little and totally adorable Ronny Howard)

Edelweiss - Sound of Music
(This one I saw off-Broadway with Christopher Plummer as Capn. Von Trapp many years later than 1965 when this was filmed, but he still sounded just as wonderful - I just couldn't find a clip.)

The next two songs are from a show that I would LOVE to see but haven't. Bill has bought me the DVD and I have watched it many times because the music is just fabulous.....

This Jesus Must Die - Jesus Christ Superstar

Superstar - Jesus Christ Superstar

This last song is my tribute to Elvis this week. I saw this show with the second generation Osmond Family and it was terrific.

Song of the King - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Hope you enjoyed all those songs, I could have listed many more. Bill and I used to go to the theater at least once a month when we lived up north and were both working. =)  I really miss it, I just love the whole idea of getting dressed up and going and seeing the show and hearing the music. I usually ended up crying at every show I was so moved.

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.....

Rebecca of Let Them Eat Cake ~~ and ~~ Annie of Annie's Home


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

I almost picked Carol Channing and Joseph's coat of many colors, but it was a different song couldn't get it to work tho9ugh. Great minds think alike. Glad you picked up on Callie's birthday. Guess she thought everyone forgot about her, but not us! Have a great day & see you in blogland!

I love Edelweiss. That song has always been a favorite. My mom used to sing it to me when I was little. I saw you live in Celebration. I'm in Lake Mary :) Go Central

Some good songs here. So jealous that you got to see Carol Channing.

Cathy Kennedy said...

Thanks for swinging by yesterday! I'm running a day late, but my excuse is a good one. Our youngest daughter got married yesterday thus my attention was elsewhere, as you can see. Anyhow back to your Broadway Musical picks!

Wow, I'm tickled I recognized all of your selections except for the first. This has been a fun theme for this week!

I used to think I was the only one!!! I love that song, and Mr Von Trapp's voice still gives me chills, haha!

Colette S said...

Oh Lorie thank you! You are so sweet!

I bet Marie loves that Dolly one!

You have a great selection here!

Have a fabulous week!
