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?
