But first - who are the 4Mers, or the Music Moves Me folks?
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.
Each week we have a theme (unless it is a freebie week, during which we can blog about anything musical)
So, let's get going!
How about some color in our world? From the Chicago "Chicago II" album, "Colour my World" featuring the late Terry Kath.
True Colors by Cyndi Lauper, brings hope in hard times.
Yellow Brick Road by one of my favorite performers, Elton John. I don't go to many concerts (I am not a fan of crowds and loud, echoing music) but I could have wished to have gone to one of his.
Yellow Submarine by the Beatles - a fun song and video.
Speaking of fun videos, the Rolling Stones "She's a Rainbow" from 1967 provides us with a psychedelic vibe. (The Stones made several other "color" hits, including "Brown Sugar" and "Paint It, Black".
The incomparable Elvis Presley covered a song "Blue Suede Shoes", written in 1955 by Carl Perkins. Instead of their versions, I am featuring another cover, performed by Buddy Holly.
Finally, a small deviation from the theme - this song is without color in the title or lyrics but the group has a color word in it,. Hence, "Under the Bridge" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This is one song I can't help singing along with, although the lyrics themselves represent the suffering of a former drug user and recollections of the depths he sunk into trying to get a heroin fix in a Los Angeles Park.
What a colorful world we have....
