Today is your Birthday so We Will Rock You…and have some Alcohol – MMMM

Monday again – can I see a show of hands on who actually likes Monday?  Well, then – maybe we can make it better with some fun music.  At least that’s something to look forward to, right?  It’s also a very special day today – it happens to be one of the fearless leaders of Monday’s Music Moves Me’s Birthday!  So rather than the usual ‘theme’ of song choices, we’re celebrating in style with Xmas Dolly and choosing an eclectic mix of songs just to honor this very special day.  Of course I have to start off with one I know she’ll like:

Beatles – Birthday

You say it’s your birthday
It’s my birthday too, yeah
They say it’s your birthday
We’re gonna have a good time
I’m glad it’s your birthday
Happy birthday to you.

Yes we’re going to a party party
Yes we’re going to a party party
Yes we’re going to a party party

I would like you to dance (Birthday)
Take a cha-cha-cha-chance (Birthday)
I would like you to dance (Birthday)
Dance

I would like you to dance (Birthday)
Take a cha-cha-cha-chance (Birthday)
I would like you to dance (Birthday)
Dance

You say it’s your birthday
Well it’s my birthday too, yeah
You say it’s your birthday
We’re gonna have a good time
I’m glad it’s your birthday
Happy birthday to you.

Next up, I wanted to celebrate her birthday with “We Will Rock You” and found this fun video online that was made for a Pepsi commercial, only it’s the full video with the full song:

Pepsi Commercial – We Will Rock You (, Pink, )

Buddy you’re a boy make a big noise
Playin’ in the street gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on yo’ face
You big disgrace
Kickin’ your can all over the place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you’re a young man hard man
Shoutin’ in the street gonna take on the world some day
You got blood on yo’ face
You big disgrace
Wavin’ your banner all over the place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you’re an old man poor man
Pleadin’ with your eyes gonna make you some peace some day

You got mud on your face
You big disgrace
Somebody better put you back in your place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Last, but certainly not least, some big celebrations include alcohol – so I had to include one of my favorite artists, in the celebration too – especially since the song and the video are so fun:

Brad Paisley – Alcohol

I can make anybody pretty
I can make you believe any lie
I can make you pick a fight
With somebody twice your size

I been known to cause a few break ups
I been known to cause a few births
I can make you new friends
Or get you fired from work.

1st Chorus
And since the day I left Milwaukee
Lynchburg and Bordeaux France
Been making the bars lots of big money
And helping white people dance
I got you in trouble in high school
But college, now that was a ball
You had some of the best times
You’ll never remember with me
Alcohol
Alcohol

I got blamed at your wedding reception
For your best man’s embarrassing speech
And also for those
Naked pictures of you at the beach

I’ve influenced kings and world leaders
I helped Hemmingway write like he did
And I’ll bet you a drink or two that I can make you
Put that lampshade on your head

2nd Chorus
‘Cause since the day I left Milwaukee
Lynchburg and Bordeaux France
Been making a fool out of folks just like you
And helping white people dance
I’m medicine and I am poison
I can help you up or make you fall
You had some of the best times
You’ll never remember with me
Alcohol
Alcohol

Happy Birthday, Dolly – hope you have the best one yet!  And anyone else who celebrates a birthday today, these songs are for you, too!  Enjoy your Monday!

  1. Brad Paisley is awesome. I almost chose the same birthday song, but blogger went wonky on me for a minute and I was too tired to go back and re-do the post. Have a great week!

  2. I like the pepsi commercial!! Pink Rocks! I have never seen that before, I wonder if it was made for a super bowl or something.

  3. Happy Monday! And yeah, no not my favorite day but you did pick one of my favorite songs and bands. The Beatles rocked!

  4. Great songs, and I have always loved that Pepsi commercial 🙂 Happy Birthday to Dolly, a name I am quite found of, my mom’s nickname growing up 🙂
    Happy MM to you,
    Janet

  5. The Beatles were definitely a top pick today. Gotta go with the classics. I loved that Pepsi commercial. I hadn’t seen that before! Not surprised that you found a way to fit Brad Paisley into the mix. lol He really does have some darn cute videos.

  6. Wondering if that was just special effect on the people watching. They can’t possibly hire that many for the video shoot. 🙂 I am sure the people would volunteer, give anything- to see Britney, B, & Pink.

  7. Why am I always last to get to comment…my feeder can’t be working…urgh. ok now im here I have to say these are all fab choices, I love Pink and want to be her in my next life :0) xxx

  8. I picked the same Beatles song with a different video and I really like the Brad Paisley song, it’s so cute.
    I have to say that I really hate what those ladies did to one of my favorite Queen songs… oh, no! But I am sure Dolly will love it.
    Thanks for always being a wonderful participant – we love you for it. Can’t wait for your freebie choices next week. =)
