After a chilly (and sometimes rainy) weekend, I’m ready for a full-on sunshine-y day today. Princess Nagger had fun trying to pull pranks on the hubby and Little Dude yesterday (and I admit, I did help her), so her day was complete. She’s happy she only has three days of school this week before a 5-day weekend for Easter weekend (and looking forward to the Easter Bunny hopping through hiding eggs and leaving her a much anticipated Easter basket).
Since it’s Monday, let’s make it a lot more fun with some great music, shall we? This week is a freebie week, so we get to go crazy. Well, you know.
Let’s start things off with the Eli Young Band – their latest single cracked the top 20 last week and is one of the fastest rising songs on the Billboard country songs chart. Here’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”:
Next up is a song I heard on last week’s episode of GCB (if you haven’t watched it yet, you really should) so I had to look up the song and who did it, since I was unfamiliar with it. Here’s Elizabeth Cook with “Sometimes It Takes Balls To Be A Woman”:
This next song gets to me every time I hear it – get some tissues ready (or at the very least be ready for some goosebumps) – here’s Kelly Pickler with “I Wonder”:
Let’s liven things up a bit with a fun song from Chris Cagle, “I Got My Country On”:
Last, but certainly not least, a song that made it to the #1 song on the Billboard Top 40 this week, here’s Kelly Clarkson with “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)”:
What are you listening to this week? Enjoy your Monday!
Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:
Want to join in the fun? It’s easy – 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 (and graciously helps out with our hostessing every time we need it):
