Another weekend that went by too fast, another Monday here again. This happens to be the last Monday of Princess Nagger’s school year – how did that happen? That’s right, I blinked.
At least Monday’s are fun days, since we get to enjoy some great music. This week’s theme for Monday’s Music Moves Me is songs from movies – it’s cool how many great songs have been featured in some great (and maybe not-so-great) movies.
Let’s start with one of my favorite movies from the 90’s, City of Angels:
Another song from the same movie, this song gets me all teary-eyed every time I hear it. Here’s Sarah McLachlan with “Angel”:
Little known fact about the previous song, “Angel” is sometimes called “In the Arms of the Angel” or simply “Arms of the Angel” but it’s actually just “Angel”. Who knew?
Who doesn’t like the movie Ghost:
A song that everyone I know would sing along with (including me), here’s the Righteous Brothers with “Unchained Melody”:
Next is a movie both Princess Nagger and I really enjoyed, Rio:
Here’s a beautiful song by Taio Cruz, “Telling The World”:
Next is a movie that everyone talked about for years after it was released (and people wished they could dance like that), Flashdance:
Here’s Irene Cara with “What A Feeling”:
And finally, a movie from 1990 that had a lot of my favorite actors in it, Young Guns II:
Here’s one of my favorite artists, Bon Jovi, with “Blaze of Glory”:
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, Callie from JAmericanSpice, and our newest permanent fixture to the hostessing team, welcome Cathy from Cathy Kennedy’s Blog. Also for the month of May, we have the honor of having our friend Denise from Run DMT generously helping out with our hostessing duties.
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):
