Can you believe it’s the last Monday of January already? I sure hope 2012 doesn’t fly by as fast as years past. Particularly if the world is supposed to come to an end at the end. Don’t want to be speeding recklessly to an early demise. I’m just sayin’.
The weekend, as usual, was much too short – so let’s jump right into the fun of Monday’s Music Moves Me, shall we? This week’s theme is Broadway hits – I know a lot of people are not musical fans, so I’ll try to keep it interesting for you. Since I need to keep it interesting for me, too.
Let’s start off with a Broadway show I would liked to have seen, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark – with Reeve Carney featuring Bono and The Edge with “Rise Above One”:
And “Boy Falls From The Sky”:
I never got to Wicked though I always wanted to go and lots of my friends have raved about how great it is, so I thought I’d pick an awesome song by Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth “Defying Gravity”:
And just for fun, since the Tony Awards are to celebrate excellence in the theatre, I found this fun video of Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris starting off the Tony Awards in 2011:
One of these days I’ll get to a show. So far the only ones I’ve seen are Les Misérables and Cats (does The Nutcracker count?) Do you like Broadway shows? Have you been to any? Enjoy your Monday!
Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:
I have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and her cohorts in crime, Lorie of The Shewbridges of Celebration, Florida, and Callie from JAmericanSpice for Monday’s Music Moves Me – want to join in the fun? It’s easy peasy! Just find a tune that rocks your boat, post it and link up – don’t forget to grab Xmas Dolly…er, um, I mean her button…over at her place here. Check out Xmas Dolly’s sidebar for the random themes we sport each week – and you can always ask for a specific theme of music you like, too. Check out the other music lovahs and let’s jam!

I’m also linking up for what was the Sunday Song Hop and now is Pinning and Singing on the Weekend over at 5 Minutes Just For Me: I’m going to have to get busy pinning, but at least it’s to share music, too:
