hear me Roar on Friday Night when I see a Peace Sign in the Mirrors

Here we are, the last Monday of October.  It's going to be a busy week, and the kids have early dismissal every day this week, plus Halloween is looming and Little Dude's birthday is on Saturday.  By the time this week is over, I'm probably going to wonder which end is up!

Being that it is Monday, how about we start off this oh-so-hectic week with some fun tuneage?  First up is a heartwarming video (and fair warning, you just might need some tissues).  It's a song I've shared before, but a video you may or may not have seen recently.

Some children at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock are proving that their illnesses can't keep their spirits down. Their lip-sync to Katy Perry's song “Roar” went viral and racked up fans from around the world, with 70,000 views in the first day with its empowering message.

Here are the awesome kids and the hospital staff with Katy Perry‘s “Roar”:

Next up is a country artist who is fairly new on the scene – he's best known for writing Jake Owen's first No. 1 hit, ,”  and Eli Young Band's

Now it's his turn in the spotlight, with this particular song having been picked up by ESPN2 for their weekly Friday Night College Football Primetime broadcasts.


Here's Eric Paslay with “Friday Night”:

Next up is an artist who put her new music directly in the hands of fans, first with their generous financial backing of her new album through Kickstarter and then by letting fans vote on which song they'd like to be the album's first single. In 10 days, she received over 220,000 impressions with the winning vote going to this particular song.

Here's Jo Dee Messina with “Peace Sign”:

Last, but not least, this next artist wrote this song for his grandmother because his grandfather died, and it summarizes their 63 years of marriage.  His grandmother remembers all the good old times they have had, and they kept the marriage so long to the point, that at the end when she drops her ring, the artist is looking forward to keep that legacy alive as he is catching that ring.


Here's Justin Timberlake with “Mirrors”:

That's a wrap for this week – have a great Monday!

Now on to the particulars of Monday's Music Move's Me:

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. I’m back from my blog hiatus and am making my way around blogosphere to visit all of my lovelies who came by while I was gone. Oh, now that lip synch video of those precious little kids in the children’s hospital is one of the best put to a pop tune. I’m glad to hear that it went viral. Great to dance with you to all of your picks this Monday. What a way to start off my week! 😉

  2. Class choices this week Stacy – Hope “Little Dude” has a brilliant time on Saturday and Happy Birthday to him from all at the Unofficial Chart Blog. Hope your week isn’t too hectic but Happy Music Monday to you x

  3. Those were great! Lovin’ the first one the best. Justin Timberlake has been on my favorite list for a while now. The others are new to me, but thanks for sharing. HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Hope the kids have a great time.

  4. I loved the hospital staff in front of the laptops. Cracked me up. Great video too.
    In fact, all just fantastic and new to me.
    Take time to breath.
    Happy Birthday Little Dude!

  5. wow that Children’s Hospital one was definitely worth browsing over here.
    One finger shy of the peace sign – you put the FU in FUN – clever lyrics.

  6. what a lovely video those kids did!! so inspiring to see their little spirits shining through.
    Like JT’s new music…I think..I’m not sure just yet. I like the older sound of the other song…..but then, he always does dance so well too.

  7. I know little man will have wonderful fun on his birthday. Happy Birthday to him!

    Ahh yes, it’s an interesting time this weekend.

    I love when children, sick and otherwise make a healthy ruckus and enjoy life.

    Thanks for rocking the music train and sorry I’m late.
