Why is it that Monday seems to be the most dreaded day of the week? I suppose it’s partly because of it being the start of a new work week, or the ‘back to reality’ day after a flurry of activity over the weekend. Luckily Monday’s don’t have to be so mundane with Monday’s Music Moves Me to entertain, along with some very fun Monday Hops.
This week MMMM is a freebie week, so naturally I chose a song from one of my favorite artists, Brad Paisley. You saw that one coming, didn’t you? His newest song, “Old Alabama” is pretty cool – especially since the band Alabama performs along with him. Enjoy!
Old Alabama Lyrics
She’d rather wear a pair of cut-off jeans than a fancy evening dress,
And with her windows rolled down and her hair all blown around, she’s a hot southern mess…
She’ll take a beer over white wine and a campfire over candle light,
And when it comes to love, oh her idea of a romantic night…
Is listenin’ to old Alabama, drivin’ through Tennessee…
A little Dixieland Delight at the Right Time of the Night,
And she can’t keep her hands off of me-ee-eee!
And now we’re rollin’ down an old back road,
I got the steering wheel in one hand…
We’ll find a hideaway where she and I can play,
In Mother Nature’s band…
Now we’re listenin’ to old Alabama, parked somewhere in Tennessee…
A little Dixieland Delight and It Feels So Right,
And It’s Love In The First Degree-ee-eee!
Forget about Sinatra or Coltrane, or some ol’ Righteous Brothers song,
And Barry White ain’t gonna work tonight, if you really wanna turn her on;
Play some back home come on music that comes from the heart,
Play something with lots of feeling, ‘cause that’s where music has to start…
Now we’re listenin’ to Old Alabama, and we’re drivin’ through Tennessee,
A little Dixieland Delight and It Feels So Right and its Love in the First Degree…
Yeah’ you know we’re listenin’ to Old Alabama,(old Alabama) drivin’ through Tennessee, (Tennessee)
A little Why Lady Why at The Right Time of The Night
Oh and she can’t keep her hands off of me-ee-eee
Oh, play me some old Alabama,
Oh, play me some old Alabama…
Won’t you play me some old Alabama,
Play me some old Alabama…
Won’t you pla-ee-ay-ay
Since not everyone is a fan of Country Music, I also wanted to share one of my favorite performances by P!nk – from the recent Grammy’s, her beautiful song “Glitter In The Air”:
Glitter in the Air Lyrics
Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Closed your eyes and trusted, just trusted?
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, “I just don’t care”?
It’s only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg
The sun before the burn
The thunder before the lightning
The breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?
Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
You’re whole life waiting on the ring to prove you’re not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?
It’s only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table
The walk before the run
The breath before the kiss
And the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?
La La La La La La La La
There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee,
Calling me sugar
You called me sugar
Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight?
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself will it ever get better than tonight?
Well? Have you ever?
Enjoy your Monday!
More Monday Hops – hop along, won’t you?
