Well looky here! Today is the first official day of summer, and the kids will be done with school later this week – let the games begin!

Also, it is Monday, and you know Monday always means music. Our Spotlight Dancer this week, Tiffany from Sounds Like Life To Me has chosen the theme for this week: “Summer officially starts on Monday. Let’s play songs about summer!” This should be fun! Let’s dance!

Since Mother Nature has already been sending us some summer heat in the spring, I’m betting we’re in for a long hot summer…


Speaking of hot… here’s Keith Urban with “Long Hot Summer”:

Lots of people like to go beachin’ during the summertime, I wouldn’t mind going beachin’ with this artist:


Let’s play in the sand with Jake Owen‘s “Beachin'”:

And if we’re gonna be beachin’, we probably want to do that All Summer Long, right?


Luckily Kid Rock has that covered with his song, “All Summer Long”:

Need some refreshments during the Long Hot Summer?  How about Two Piña Coladas with Garth Brooks:


(There weren’t any versions available online of Garth actually singing, but I have the album so I uploaded the music since the original is always better than a cover when it comes to Garth. Trust me on that one).

Of course we’ll need some food with those Two Piña Coladas, so we’ll get a Cheeseburger in Paradise from the inimitable Jimmy Buffett:


Sounds like a perfect summer, doesn’t it?

That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday!

Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:   PhotobucketI have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and our musical cohorts, Callie from JAmericanSpice, and Naila Moon from Just the Stuff Ya Know. 

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!



  1. One more week of school, sooo when do you all start school my friend? Seems so late to still be in school. I am amazed at how many districts are still in session.

    Love the songs. I knew you would pick Keith, thank you for loving that man as much as I do.

    Here is to a great week.

  2. Were lucky to get a short mild summer in London haha!

    All new to me I enjoyed listening to them always good to hear different tunes 🙂

    Have a summertastic day Stacy 🙂

  3. Cheeseburger in paradise has always been one of my faves! Wish I could be eating a cheeseburger on a beach right now.

  4. Well how do you like that! First day of Summer on a Monday eh.
    Love it!

    Thanks for the rocking tunes Stacy.

    Have a great week!

  5. Cheeseburgers in Paradise always struck me as redundant – of *course* there’d be cheeseburgers in Paradise. If I get there and they try and serve me tofu …

    What a classic collection. You knocked it out, Stacy.
