A new week has arrived! We’re looking at some fabulous sunny and warm days this week, which will make up for the endless chilly rain we’ve been having the last couple of weeks. Since it is Monday, it’s time for some music!

Since yesterday was Earth Day, this week our theme is “tunes regarding our planet!” Grab your favorite tune(s) and dance along, won’t you?

Let’s start off with Princess Nagger’s choice with a song sung by Tom McGurk from  a favorite game of ours from years ago – SPY Fox: “Operation Ozone”. In this game, Poodles Galore, the Queen of cosmetics, has blasted an enormous aerosol (hairspray) space station into orbit and set it off. The constant blast of aerosol will deplete the entire ozone layer within a matter of hours, leaving the planet at the mercy of the ravaging sun; she herself will benefit from this because her cosmetics production company markets sunscreen at an SPF level of 2001.

The world will have no choice but to buy Poodles’ super sun block. The SPF: 2001, the only sunscreen product with a strong enough sun protection factor to block the onslaught of the sun. It’s up to SPY Corps and their top agent SPY, Fox to muzzle that Poodle for good.

I wish I would have recorded Princess Nagger singing this when she was younger – she did an outstanding job, but refused to allow recording. Little twerp. One of these days….

Enjoy Spy Fox 3: Operation Ozone Soundtrack: “Where Has All The Ozone Gone?”

Next up is a song the artist was quoted as saying:

“[This song] is a kind of hopeful song. I think it’s saying you can create your own piece of heaven on your own patch. It’s a song about peace of mind and it’s also partly a love song.”

This song topped the charts not only in the US and UK, but also several other countries. It was this artist’s only chart topper with or without The Go-Go’s.

Here’s Belinda Carlisle with “Heaven Is A Place On Earth”:

Next up is a song that was the band’s first hit in the UK. The song also reached #1 in Australia despite the band doing no promotional work there. It’s Australian success was based on the strength of the radio play and its stylish video featuring the band performing against a futuristic, glacier-styled backdrop.

A great song for the theme for sure!

Here’s Duran Duran with “Planet Earth”:

And finally, a song with the power to fight climate change and maybe even change the world. Some of the world’s biggest names in music joined voices in 2015 to inspire real action on climate change, and to support the United Nations’ call for a meaningful, universal climate agreement that same year.

Every time the song is purchased, streamed, or shared, the royalties go directly towards the efforts of Friends of the Earth to keep fossil fuels in the ground and lower carbon emissions, and to the work of the U.N. Foundation to inspire international action on climate change.

Give a listen to the incredible artists Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Leona Lewis, Sean Paul, Natasha Bedingfield, Colbie Caillat, Leona Lewis, Johnny Rzeznik, Krewella, Angelique Kidjo, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Grimmie, Victoria Justice, Kelsea Ballerini, Q’Orianka Kilcher with “Love Song to the Earth”:

That’s a wrap for this week, have a great Monday – see you on the dance floor!

  1. Fantastic choices for Earth Day, all of them! I especially loved Planet Earth, as I am a member of the “Duranie Forever” club!

  2. Stacy,

    You came up with some interesting song choices for today’s theme, most of which are introductions. The only I knew and is my favorite of your picks is “Heaven On Earth”. I was glad to learn that little tidbit about “Love Song to the Earth”. This is definitely one I will not support because I believe in keeping the American coal miners in business. Thanks for putting the groove in my move on the dance floor, dear friend!

  3. Hi, Stacy!

    I saw your comment today on Curious as a Cathy, enjoyed your style of communication and decided to swing over here and have a look at your blog. Turns out there’s an awful lot to like, and therefore I have decided to follow you.

    I appreciate your Earth Day play list. “Where Has All The Ozone Gone” joins “Where Have All The Flowers Gone” on the list of songs that make people stop and think about what we’re doing here on mother earth and where it is leading. The Belinda Carlisle hit is very familiar to me. It was an important “anchor song” in a series of NLP seminars that I helped produce in the 80s. I have “Heaven” and “Planet Earth” in my personal CD collection.

    I visited your About Me page and discovered that you and I have much in common, not the least of which is my love of dogs. Beyond that, you might be interested to know that I was born and raised in the same area where you lived for quite some time – York, PA, and that I visited the Gettysburg Battlefield on several occasions.

    I cordially invite you to visit me at Shady Dell Music & Memories. Here’s hoping a great friendship is about to be uncorked. Thank you, Stacy!

  4. First of all, great job my friend!!! Duran, Duran was the ultimate for sure & thank you for the introduction to “The Introduction to the earth”. I’ve never heard that one.. sheesh! Have I been living under a rock??? hahaha NOW SURPRISE~! Please go say BIG HELLO to our Colette!!! She came to visit today (she’s my last comment). Say hello! I know she would love to hear from all of us! THANKS BABY GIRL! HUGS TO ALL & YES even to our Princess Nagger & the Lil Dude” too! BIG HUGS TO YOU ALWAYS!

  5. Those are some great choices for Earth Day! Thanks for the tunes. I enjoyed them. Years and years ago, we saw Andy Warhol at Duran Duran’s first NYC show at a small club.

  6. Heaven is a place on earth song is usually becoming an ear worm when you hear it 🙂
    Love to dance with you Stacy!
    Have a fun week!

  7. It’s been ages since I’ve heard Heaven on Earth (my husband, on the other hand, hears it on the music played where he works all the time). I am so into early Duran Duran but enjoyed this song, too. And, I am swaying to Love Song to the Earth. No, it isn’t any ordinary world – it’s the only world we have. Wen will we wake up to that fact?

    spend, the organization believes, if they can get to know the models, type relationships and play a role in directing the action filmmakers make.
