During the month of February, our conductor Cathy of Curious as a Cathy is picking our themes, and today she picked a good one:   "The National Day calendar inspires song picks using these key words:  MAIL, SOUP and VACUUM."  Nothing like a little challenge!

I am going to start with soup, because my spouse wanted me to feature "Talk Soup" by "Weird Al" Yankovic.  We are both big Weird Al fans and we are freezing here in New York State.

So, spouse here you go.

Nine Bowls of Soup - They Might be Giants, an alternative rock duo formed in 1982.  They have had great success with children's songs, in addition to several charted rock hits (I am partial to "Birdhouse in your Soul")

As far as "mail", how about letters?

The most obvious one is Elvis Presley's "Return to Sender".

And Pat Boone's "Love Letters in the Sand".

But vacuum?  Well, there's "Love in a Vacuum" by 'Til Tuesday.

But thinking of vacuum, I also think of space, and from there "Space Oddity" by David Bowie.

So, this theme brought me to various places today - what about you?

Join us again next Monday for another episode of Music Moves Me!


  1. Alana,

    I remember you guys are WA fans. :) 'Talk Soup' was a title I stumbled on but decided against using it because I fairly certain you might go with it and it looks like I was right. 'Return To Sender' was another tempting tune but I steered away from it, too. I really liked it back in the day. These classic sounds never get old, do they? You and Stacy picked the same Till Tuesday song. Two great minds thinking alike, eh? There are vacuums in space, so I get the connection with David Bowie's hit, 'Space Oddity'. Nice job on today's theme. It was a a tricky one, don't you agree? Have a boogietastic week, Sweetie!

  2. I loved the "moves" Elvis was making. They looked as natural as a monkey flying. I, too, enjoy weird Al, but never heard that soupy number. And love in a vacuum while traveling around New York City is about as incongruous a thought I can digest on a Monday.

  3. We both picked "Nine Bowls of Soup", it is such a great song. Thanks for the dance.

  4. Just love that Elvis song and video. He is so sexy! Ear worm but a good one for a cold Monday!

  5. I realized the "space=vacuum" thing and that was the only way I could get through this...

  6. "Talk Soup" by "Weird Al" totally rocked & was hysterical. My hubby loved it too! bwahahaha Tell your hubby thank you... hehehe~ Well, I must say 9 bowls of soup really got around today & Elvis oh my, forgot about that one for sure, but I'm glad you didn't & Pat Boone too great choice for sure. Love in a vaccuum when around quite a few times today too, but David Bowie's tune is a first! Good one my friend & have a rockin' week!

  7. "Birdhouse in your Soul" is one of my very favorite songs.

  8. Great take on the theme. You can't go wrong with David Bowie. I've been to about 5 blogs today and Weird Al seems to be a uniting force.

  9. Awesome choices for sure! And you can never go wrong with Weird Al...heh! :) Thanks for the dance!
