Monday already?  The last week has gone by in a blur.  Probably because Princess Nagger came down with a sore throat/cold/flu/fever last week and ended up home for two days (which I’m now catching since she just loves to share). 

Mother Nature actually smiled on us with beautiful weather so we were able to tame some of the wilderness in the backyard (though there is still so much to do, which I would have done yesterday had Princess Nagger not decided to share her yucky bug with me.)

This weeks’ Monday’s Music Moves Me theme is freebie week, so let’s have some fun, shall we?  First up is a great song by the cutie Justin Moore “How I Got To Be This Way”:

Next up is from Kelly Clarkson (yes, I voted for her on American Idol) with one of her latest songs, “Mr. Know It All”:

Next up is one of my favorite bands, Maroon 5 (featuring Christina Aguilera) with “Moves Like Jagger”:

Last, but certainly not least, is a song Princess Nagger wanted me to make sure I shared (with excessive nagging), one she’s been listening to ad nauseum this weekend (and singing along – one of these days I’ll catch her on video and post it.  Mark my words.)  Here’s Evanescence with “Bring Me To Life”:

She assured me that the woman in the video is a ‘dare devil’, and said “Don’t worry, Mama, she doesn’t really jump, she’s just double-dreaming.”

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!

The awesome Run DMT also hosts Music Monday:

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:

  1. Justin Moore is totally cute! But sometimes I think his voice sounds a little TOO country, like he’s trying to over exaggerate his accent. But I do like your song choices today. Happy Monday!

  2. Great picks. I remember Kelly Clarkson was all over Macau when I was there last year. Sorry about Princess Nagger. I also have a slight fever right now.

  3. LOVE that new one by Kelly Clarkson and I think of Run DMT’s youngest when I hear Moves Like Jagger because he bounces to it! So funny! Heed caution if you’re headed over there today as he’s moved on to a new song to groove too! *gag* Happy Monday! :0)

  4. Fun picks, mama! I love Kelly Clarkson. I voted for her too back in the day. That new song of hers has definitely grown on me. I wasn’t to keen on it at first but now I like it.

    Like Gone Bananas said, Little Lion Man loves Moves Like Jagger. He’s gets some seriously moves and swagger when he hears it. So stinking cute! I’ve been trying to get it on video for ages with no luck. He doesn’t want to dance for the camera, I guess. lol

  5. I was going to put Kelly Clarkson, “Mr. Know It All”, I really like that song :). I enjoyed your first song and gonna have to add it to my iPod that is a new one for me. Loved your little girl’s explanation ‘double dreaming’.

    Feel better soon 🙂

  6. I think I might be going a little loopy…I came by to listen to your choices and link up yesterday and then forgot to link up as I was so carried away by the music! Great choices today but I have to confess (please don’t hate me!) that I am not a fan of Evanescence.

    I sure do hope that your daughter has made a full recovery and that you are feeling better soon. Drink lots of hot tea and have some chicken soup!

    Best wishes,

  7. Getting sick is not allowed. Poor honey! I know what that’s like though when my kids were around they were sick so was I, but now that they’re grown & it’s just hubby & myself my colds are far and few in between! Yipeeee!!! Love all your choices. Kelly Clarkson really lost a lot of weight didn’t she. She swelled up like a roly poly before. Yep, great choices! You so ROCK!
