We long for Home in music, too. Every Monday, my blog, and the blogs of a number of other fine men and women becomes the Home for music - #MusicMovesMe, that is.
Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We ride on a weekly train of music and we are headed by our head Engineer XmasDolly. Her co-conductors are: ♥Callie of JAmerican Spice♥, (who right now is visiting when she can - please keep her in your thoughts ) and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥ Also, co-conducting is ♥Cathy from Curious as a Cathy♥ And, (blushing) me.
For the next few months, we will also have honorary conductors. Go to Xmas Dolly's site, get the complete list, and you can find out how you could guest conduct next year.
This week's theme is a FREEBIE - and I am featuring some songs about Home, a topic that has been on my mind a lot recently.
Home, as in Homeward Bound by one of my favorite duos, Simon and Garfunkel, from 1966.
Take Me Home, by Phil Collins, from 1985, from his third solo album, talks about someone who feels he is a prisoner in his own life - if only he could be taken home.
Our House, by Madness, from 1982. This is such a fun video that I had to include this upbeat song (the house, I understand, was located in London.)
No blog post about home would be complete without John Denver's Take Me Home, Country Roads. Home means so much to all of us. Do any particular songs make you think of home?
In July, our Honorary Conductor will be (drum roll): Michelle of Musings & Merriments. So thank you for the opportunity to Conduct in June, and stay tuned for some rockin' July music.
See you then!
