Monday Music Moves Me - Sibling Day


So, it figures.  I'm invited to join a blog hop by the blogger who writes a blog called Curious as a Cathy.  That was in mid May, but things were hectic for me.  So, now that the madness of May is behind me, I decide to link up....

And what is today's topic but Sibling Day.  "Blog about your sibling(s) favorite song(s). " And I have a slight problem....because I'm an only child.

So I am going to change this up a little and feature some music about families, and sisters (and brothers) in general.

I love this song - Our House by Madness, because it is so unlike the small family (after age 12, just my father and me) I grew up in.  And, at that, we didn't even live in a house, but, rather, an apartment in a New York City housing project.

But if a family loves each other, it's a family, right?  So, a song about sisterhood.

We Are Family, a 1979 hit by Sister Sledge

Now, it's the turn of brothers, and I have to turn serious.  You don't have to have siblings to have brothers - anyone who has ever served in wartime can tell you that.  So, I will end my post with a Dire Straits song written in 1982.  It is, alas, still relevant today.  The video itself is beautiful.

But let's dispel this mood, and be positive with "Roar" by Katy Perry, as sung at One Love Manchester yesterday.

Monday’s Music Moves Me is sponsored by X-Mas Dolly, Callie, Cathy, and Stacy, so be sure and visit them.

Do you have siblings? What songs do you think of when you think of them?

  1. Thanks for joining me on the dance floor. I appreciate you adding the linky code to your site but I'll let you know I did a change up on it and the new one is on my site. Sorry 'bout that. I went ahead and added your URL to mine so others will find you. ;) I'm curious, would you like for me to make you a blog button? Something to put in sidebar for others to lift if they want a clickable button to find you? It's really easy to do, you can supply me with an image and I'll do the rest for ya.

    I enjoyed your tribute to brothers and sisters. I, especially like how you remembered those who served - very tender moment. Closing out with a "Roar" was a great way to put the groove in my move!

    Have a tunetastic day, dearie!

    1. My first time on the dance floor, and I trip over my feet. Figures. Next time I won't try to link at 6:15 am. I'd love a blog button but I'd have to think about the image. Thank you!

  2. I have one sister and when I think of her I think of The Association. They were her favorite group in High School and years later I took her to meet them in concert. I should post out backstage pictures some day.

  3. Great choice of music.
    What we really need to ensure is that we ALL feel like brothers and sister.

  4. Great songs. My nephew when he married he had the band play the Sister Sledge song to introduce his 2 sisters for me and my sister and his Dad and his 3 sisters!

  6. I have a brother. And I could write posts and posts having to do with music and him. (In fact, I wrote a college essay on him during his disco phase.) Suffice it to say that I bought him a T-shirt with all the music genres on it, and he was quite pleased with it.

  7. I have three sisters. I can't think of a theme song that would fit all three of them. Hmmm....

  8. My 11-years-younger sister is a die-hard head-banger. I've never liked rock that hard, so I couldn't name one song that makes me think of her!
