Memorial Day Monday's Music Moves Me ~ 5/28/2012


** This is week #91 of Monday's Music Moves Me... don't forget our Grand Gala Giveaway begins with week #95 - and you must be a participant for at least 5 weeks to play! **

Welcome to Monday's Music Moves Me!!! We want to make our meme fantastic but, 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 StacyUncorked, the lovely Callie of JamericanSpice and the newest member of our crew... the wonderful and talented Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog. We will also have some helpers along the way when we need to because life is.... well, life! For the month of May (starting today) our dear friend Denise of RunDMT, who is a faithful supporter of Monday's Music Moves Me, will be helping out due to lots of "life" that is going on with several of us. Thank you SO much Denise - you are AWESOME!!

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!

This week's theme is FREEBIE! Since this is Memorial Day, I decided to post songs that honor our troops, the true heroes of our country.

Won't Be Coming Home

If I Don't Make it Back ~ Tracy Lawrence

Letters from Home ~ John Michael Montgomery

This one always gives me goosebumps.....

Riding with Private Malone ~ David Ball

.....and one final song for all those who have paid the final sacrifice for our freedom.

The History of Taps ~ As told by John Wayne

I really hope you enjoyed my songs - now it's your turn! So now pick your songs, write a post and don't forget to add it to one of the linky's - there is one on each of the hosts' blog. And bring along a friend, will you - the more the merrier, we say! We can't wait to hear your songs, plus you might be chosen as our Spotlight Dancer and be in the #1 or 2 linky spot, like this weeks spotlight winners.

Shary of Shary Loves You ~~ and ~~ Dominique of Dominique's Desk


Don't forget to grab the Spotlight Dancer button from XmasDolly's blog and proudly display it on your blog showing everyone that you were picked!

Now, go on and post your songs... get your friends to post their favorite songs and link up so we all can hear them... and have a musical Monday.


As you celebrate Memorial Day today, surrounded by your family and friends, please keep in mind our troops who volunteer to keep us safe and protect our freedoms every day of the year.

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,
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!***
