Mother Nature finally acquiesced and sent us 4-6 inches of snow on Saturday morning, so the kids were happy campers finally getting to play in some good snow.  Hubby was a happy camper too, since he finally got to try out the new ‘toy’ – the snow blower – that he’d been jonesin’ to use all winter.  Of course in her persnickety way, Mother Nature followed the snow with freezing rain this morning, so we’ll see how the morning shapes up.

Today for Monday’s Music Moves Me is a freebie – so we’re going to start off with the amazing Etta James, whose passing last week was a sad time.  Her classic “At Last” is timeless:

Let’s switch it up some with a fun song to get you moving, Flo Rida with “Good Feeling”:

Let’s keep the fun going with a hysterical song by Billy Currington, “Like My Dog”:

And finally, a great song by Chris Young simply entitled “You”:

Enjoy your Monday!

  1. Thanks for mentioning Etta James 🙁 Wouldn’t have known. She sounds like Dionne Warwick, both fabulous. My computer is acting up. Would like to listen to Like My Dog. I’m so ready to laugh today 😀 Happy Monday!

  2. Four to six inches of snow?! Holy winter, Batman!

    I thought about sharing an Etta James tune today too. She was a class act. Love her music and her voice.

    I’ll be seeing Flo Rida in a few weeks. He’ll be playing at the Rock ‘n Roll half marathon finish line. How fun is that?! I can’t wait!

  3. At Last really is a timeless classic and noone can sing it better than Etta James. May she rest in peace!

    I was dancing to your R&B pick. It’s really catchy and that’s coming from someone who isn’t an R&B fan.

    I had to laugh over Like My Dog. That was a good one to throw in the mix.

    Now, Chris Young has a fine voice. I really like his style. I may have to look into more of his music!

    Thanks for the intro to some nice tunes!

  4. Thanks for sharing! I don’t think I’ve ever heard you. I don’t listen to much country anymore, but I liked it.

  5. I think we skipped right over winter and went from fall to spring! *sigh* Etta Jones was an amazing voice and talent, gone but not forgotten!
    I LOVE Billy Currington’s “Like My Dog!” played it for my hubby the other week and made him giggle! lol
    Hope all is well with you! x

  6. Everyone must’ve gotten in in tin the morning because it wouldn’t let me in last night for love nor money,. Love your choices. Always do. I figured a lot of people would be putting up Etta James that’s why I left it for everyone else. She was good you have to admit. Thanks for sharing girlfriend.
