Birthday Songs and My 3000th Blog Post - #MusicMovesMe

Today, before we get to the music: today, I am posting the 3000th post of my blog.

3000 posts!

It isn't a blog birthday (that will come in April - its ninth birthday) but today, on Music Moves Me, we celebrate "birthdays or songs about kids growing up and being beautiful".  Why?  Because the daughter of one of the participants of this blog hop is turning 25.  And, hey, if you also can't celebrate a 3000th blog post, what can you celebrate!

Before we get to the music, a little about Music Moves Me (aka "4M").

The Head 4M'er is XmasDolly.  Her co-4Mers are:  Callie of JAmerican Spice, and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥   And last but certainly not least, Cathy from Curious as a Cathy.


Only a couple of songs today because today is going to be a busy day for me, but I wanted to feature a song that, when I was turning 16, was played at just about every Sweet 16 party.

Birthday, by the Beatles.

And, for the modern young ladies, a video I love by a talented singer - Katy Perry, Birthday.  I hope you will get the humor, too (and it's worth, I think, the entire eight minutes of watching. It starts a little weird, but stay with it.)

No birthdays today, but a wonderful person I know turned 86 yesterday and, earlier last week, my husband's aunt turned 106.  Young ladies, you have so much to look forward to.

Wishing you many wonderful years ahead.



  1. So, I can vouch for the fact that Paul provides one HECK of a show. And, I really never knew much about Ms. Perry- but that was a most creative concept video!

  2. 3000 blog posts! That's amazing. Congratulations and Happy Birthday Erica!

  3. I loved this video from Katy Perry! My birthday is tomorrow so close enough that I am enjoying the songs very personally.

  4. Congrats on #3000, that is quite impressive. Thanks for sharing cool songs today.

  5. Alana,

    Birthday fun all the way around! The Katy Perry vid is a lot of fun, putting a big grin on my face and I'm sure it's gonna be a big hit with the bday girl, too. Thanks for boogieing with us, my friend!

  6. Thanks so much for Erica's birthday wishes. Love the songs! Erica said, "This is cute. I like seeing all the blogposts about my birthday!"

  7. Wonderful birthdays! And congratulations on 3000 posts!

  8. That video you found of Katy Perry was definitely a hoot! Talk about crackin' me up! LOL Thanks for partying with us! Have a rockin' week!

  9. I'm sorry & Congrats on No. 3000!!! Woo Hoo That is an accomplishment for sure. HUGS

  10. Congratulations on your milestone. Keep 'em coming!

  11. Hi Alana,
    Congratulations on your 3000th blog post! I can't even fathom 3000 posts. Although I can't even tell you how many I have but I know for sure it's nowhere near 3000. But then again, I never was very good at math... :)

    Great songs here. Loved the Katy Perry video. I never knew much about her and certainly never thought she'd be so crazy fun!

    Have a good week,

    Michele at Angels Bark

  12. Congrats on 3000. That's huge. (Literally ;)

  13. Congrats on 3000 posts! Great milestone! I'm about 600 behind you - I better get busy! ;) Love your song choices - and especially love that we picked one of the same ones. You have good taste! :) Thanks for the dance!
