Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We are bloggers who blog about music each Monday and if you have music to share with us, you are most welcome to join! (Music Posts Only, please! They must contain at least music video from You Tube or Vimeo, not just be words about music. Non-music posts are subject to removal or labeling as "No Music".) First, there is XmasDolly. Her chief co-conductor is Cathy of Curious as a Cathy. Her other co-conductors are Stacy of Stacy Uncorked, and me.
This month our guest conductor will be Songbird from Songbird's Crazy World. This week her theme for us is: "In honor of Columbus Day, songs about taking a journey. It can be an actual trip, or a trip into the imagination, or even an emotional journey"
Yes, there are all kinds of journeys.
With the Amboy Duke, featuring Ted Nugent on lead guitar, you can take a 1968 Journey to the Center of the Mind. Come along if you dare!
How about Deep Purple's Space Truckin'?
If you get an overwhelming urge to jump in your car and drive when you hear this song, could you at least finish reading this blog post first? Golden Earring's 1973 hit (full version) Radar Love.
Humankind has been traveling on the water for thousands of years, and sometimes things don't go well. Gordon Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", sadly, documents a real disaster.
Steve Earle tells quite a musical story in "Copperhead Road". Maybe not a "journey" song but it sure is emotional, it has vehicles and the word "road". I'm going with it.
Last but not least, I am taking you on an actual journey, to hear a group from Mongolia called The HU ("Hu" is their root word for human, translated by some as "Hun") and a song called Yuve Yuve Yu, which has gone viral since its September release. Their music is a blend of rock (all the musicians hold degrees in music, incidentally) and traditional throat singing and Mongolian instruments. This is one journey you don't want to miss.
See you next week, same time, same place!
