It appears we have once again returned to the blazing summer heat before summertime has officially arrived. Still not a fan of Mother Nature this year. But at least since it’s Monday, and the theme for Monday’s Music Moves Me is a freebie week, we can chill out with some fun tunes.
Let’s start off with an artist I love, and a song that gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. The video is especially cool since it starts off with him as a 6 year old. Here’s David Nail with “The Sound Of A Million Dreams”:
Next up is a song that caught my attention at the end of the Criminal Minds Season Finale (I’m sure going to miss Paget Brewster as Emily Prentiss next season) so of course I had to hunt it down. Ruthlessly. I finally found a few video versions, but no ‘official’ video, then I stumbled across this one a fan did with clips from the show itself. Here’s Lily Kershaw with “As It Seems”:
Next up is a new(ish) song from my girl, Kelly Clarkson. Yes, I voted for her when she was on American Idol. Here she is with one of her newer songs, “Dark Side”:
Next up is a song I’ve always loved because it cracks me up (and it’s catchy – you’ll find yourself singing along), here’s Toby Keith with “I Wanna Talk About Me”:
Last but not least, one of my ‘guilty pleasure’ shows is Jane By Design. I heard this song on a recent episode and of course had to find it. Here’s a new group (to me) One, Two with “Said I Would”:
What music are you listening to this week? Enjoy your Monday!
