I hope those of you who had Nemo entertain you with the overabundance of snow are warm and cozy – some people lost power and I sure hope they get it back, because while I like snow, not having power to keep warm and sane would probably change my mind about snow. I kept hoping against hope that Nemo would come for a visit, but he snubbed us royally. All we got was rain and big wet snowflakes that didn’t stick, followed by blustery gusty winds that chilled to the bone but still no white stuff. I’m a bit miffed at Mother Nature.
Since it’s Monday, it’s time for some great music – for those snowed in, maybe this will help entertain you. This week’s theme for Monday’s Music Moves me is favorite Love Songs, with the challenge to find some without the word “love” in the title. I’m a romantic at heart, so naturally I had a very long list of favorites to choose from, and had to flip coins and play eeny, meeny, miny, moe to finally whittle the selections down to some of my top choices.
Let’s start off with an artist who had this to say about his song: “Being a married man, I also like the message – telling your woman she’s beautiful as she is – she doesn’t need all that glamour. The woman you are right now, no makeup and just hanging out in a pair of old jeans and t-shirt -that’s the woman I love.”
Here’s the cutey Joe Nichols with “Gimmie That Girl”:
Next up is a fun song that plays on the fact that a majority of guys aren’t romantic – some aren’t good at saying how they feel, so they’ll turn it into something funny so they don’t sound like a dork.
With lyrics like “You be my soft and sweet / I’ll be your strong and steady / You be my glass of wine / I’ll be your shot of whiskey / You be my sunny day / I’ll be your shade tree / You be my honeysuckle / I’ll be your honey bee” how can you not melt? Especially when it’s being sung by Blake Shelton.
Here he is with “Honey Bee”:
Next up is a song from one of my all-time favorite artists – he apparently re-wrote a small portion of the lyrics to personalize the song more closely to his own life. Of course he did. He’s cool like that.
Here’s my boy Brad Paisley with “She’s Everything”:
Next up is a song that many of you’ve probably heard at a million weddings – maybe even your own. The goosebump-inducing song will never go out of style.
Here’s Rascal Flatts with “Bless The Broken Road”:
Next up is another one from Brad Paisley – I almost went for a Trifecta since there are so many songs of his to choose from, but it was making my title too long, so I had to choose wisely. This song is hilarious and sweet all rolled into one.
It should be noted that the very last clip of he and his real-life-wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley (whom I also love) was an accident, but they decided to leave it in because it was funny. You’ll see.
Here’s Brad Paisley with “Little Moments”:
Last, but certainly not least, this next artist (who is married to an equally superstar wife and will be celebrating their 16th wedding anniversary next month), got a lot of negative reviews on this song because people thought it was beneath him. I know, I don’t get it either.
I happen to think he did an awesome job on the song, it’s fun and playful and both Princess Nagger and I love to sing along to it when it comes on the radio.
Here’s Tim McGraw with “Felt Good On My Lips”:
Ooh ooh ooh I wanna go crazy – you can go crazy too… See? I bet you’ll be singing the chorus in your head all day today, too. Everybody say Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh how sweet it is… Have a great Monday.

These songs are so romantic i just loved these songs. While listening to them i feel so much amazed.
They are romantic and amazing, aren’t they Julia? Glad you enjoyed them! 🙂
Oh man I love all of these! Wow how can you not love these guys? You know I live only a few miles from Blake Shelton’s hometown. When we first moved here he was doing local concerts dirt cheap and some times free!
My husband was listening with me though and he said ‘She’s Everything’ is definitely more like me!
I hope you have a great week! 🙂
They are great, aren’t they? What’s not to love, eh? 😉 So sweet of your hubby to say “She’s Everything” is definitely more like me – you guys are too cute! Have a great week, Jackie! 🙂
Good choices; there are so many great country love songs, right? I think it’s because they always feel genuine.
I think you nailed it, Claire – they do always feel genuine, don’t they? 🙂
Fun Post .. No a fan of country but I do love me some of those sexy hotties.. like Blake.. yummy
Thanks for putting up with the country, Sherry – I used to be anti-country once upon a time until my BFF *made* me listen to it with her…heh! New Country is my fav, old country not so much. 😉 And yes, sexy hotties like Blake sure do make it even easier to be a convert! 😉
LOVE Blake Shelton!
He is awesome, isn’t he, Lindsay? 🙂
No doubt, country boys do it best!
HA! Truer words were never spoken, Jeannette! 😉
Love, Love LOVE that Tim McGraw song.
honestly I replayed it several times…. purely for the music of course 🙂
Sure, Rory – purely for the music! 😉 It’s such a great song, isn’t it? I keep replaying it over and over again – you know, for the music. 😉
I know you were looking forward to the snow. Sorry it missed you.
Thanks Michele! 🙂
I do love those songs. They make a lousy Monday just a bit better.
I’m glad they made a lousy Monday better, Vandy! 🙂
Oh, I love that honeybee song. The country background is my kind of scenery. And I’d be glad to sell honey all day if my customer was a hunk like that. My, Winnie the Pooh would like to pay that guy a visit 🙂
That is such a great song, Hazel, isn’t it? I’d be glad to sell honey all day long if my customer was a hunk like Blake, too! 😉
can’t go wrong with a bunch of cuties singing about love though i admit Honey Bee is my fav
You’re right about that, Becca – can’t go wrong with a bunch of cuties singing about love! 😉
Great songs! That’s outside my genre so some were new to me!
Glad you enjoyed them even though they were outside your genre, Chrissy! 😉
So much country!! 🙂 I like that little Moment one, very cute.
Usually I try to mix it up but found too many loves in country… 😉 The Little Moments one sure is cute, isn’t it? 🙂
That Brad Paisley video was too cute! It reminded me of When Harry Met Sally.
It does remind me of When Harry Met Sally – probably one of the reasons I love it so much! 😉
We got some beautiful snow here in the Red Rocks and it will be all gone by Wednesday,I love that, I get the best of both worlds a little winter with no mush 🙂
Anyway, I had your problem too, so many great songs I wanted to share but could only post a few. Loved that Honey Bee,song so cute. Oh, and Brad Paisley, I love him. I agree, I thought Tim’s song was catchy and cute. Have a great week!!!
Maybe we should move where you are, eh Lucy? 😉 Glad you enjoyed my choices today, Lucy! 🙂 Have a great week! 🙂
I love the way your first singer thinks! 🙂 Ahhhh Good ol’ Blake! Got to know him on “The Voice”! He’s a cutie for sure & funny too! It’s a shame he didn’t win last night, but just being in the running for an award is sweet too! Sweet song by Mr. Paisley as well, but love the second video even more. That old couple is too sweet & the ending is a hoot! Now bless Rascal Flatts is all I can say to that while having goose bumps. Tim McGraw they came on last night & I couldn’t even see his face because of his hat! lol Great choices my friend… dang girl I was here a long time. 🙂
Glad you enjoyed all the songs, Marie! I’m here to please…and keep you around a while. 😉
I always get a musical education when I come over to your space.
I think the cutest one is Blake Shelton’s. It is corny but cute.
I like all of the picks really.
Have a good week my friend.
It’s always good to learn something new every day, isn’t it Naila? (heh!) The Blake song is corny but cute – glad you enjoyed all the picks! 😉 Have a great week! 🙂
All these men are lookers, but I’m not a country music fan… which is a conflict of interest when I visit my son in Nashville.
That’s funny, Joyce! That would be quite the conundrum, wouldn’t it? 😉
heck of a lineup – believe it or not almost all are new to me 🙂 Thanks for sharing
I’m glad you enjoyed them! 😉 Have a great week! 🙂
Ooh play me something country!
Blake Shelton is something isn’t he!
I enjoyed your mix Stacy. Enjoy the rest of your week 🙂
You know me, I’m a Country Girl at heart! 😉 Blake Shelton is something for sure! 😀 Glad you enjoyed the mix, Callie – you have a great week! 🙂
Just love your love song choices without the mention of “love” in the title for today’s theme. My fave pick of your line up today is, Rascal Flatt’s “Bless the Broken Road”.
Thanks for joining us on the virtual dance floor at Monday’s Music Moves Me! Happy V’Day to you & your significant other
