A Walk #MusicMovesMe

It's time for another episode of #MusicMovesMe. 

Who are the members of Music Moves Me ?  We are bloggers who blog with music each Monday. If you have music to share with us, you are most welcome to join! (Music Posts Only- Please post containing links to You Tube or Vimeo for actual music.  Other posts are subject to removal or labeling as "No Music".)  Every other week we have a theme and on alternate weeks we have "You Pick".  

Our conductors? 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.  

For March our guest conductor is Marie from Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty.

Her theme for today is "It's Walking in the Park Day - so the theme is Walking."  

Do you remember when you could walk without fear? It's hard for many.

Back when times were less perilous, my spouse and I used to enjoy walking on the Vestal Rail Trail in Vestal, New York (about 150 miles north and west of New York City).  We are still walking, weather permitting, but trying to find places less crowded.

So I'm all about walking in all sorts of ways, such as the Bangles and "Walk Like an Egyptian".

Looks like many of my selections will be oldies - not moldy, just oldies.  Next up, the one hit I am aware of by The Left Banke - from 1966, "Walk Away Renee". I love its melody.

Or, from 1963 and my preteen years, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and "Walk Like a Man"?

"Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves.

A song from my early teen years.  From 1965, "Remember (Walking in the Sand)" by the Shangri-Las.

Before I sign off, I must post a last minute tribute to country singer Joe Diffie, dead from COVID-19.  Here is one of his hits from 1994, Pickup Man. Perhaps he is giving a concert "up there" right now.

Remember...and keep your eyes on the thought of better days ahead when we get through this.   Why not visit other music bloggers and see how they are walking today.

You know the drill, please be kind, and, that isn't it.  Just be kind.  And join me next week for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, AND Music Moves Me.  That should be interesting.


  1. I was this close to putting 4 Seasons, Walk like a man. Glad you did. They've always been a favorite of mine. Great tunes choices here girlfriend. Stay healthy & have a great day .

  2. Great choices. The Four Season song is one of my favorites. And I really liked the Shangri Las

  3. Just Walk Away Renee comes straight out of my high school years. I was saddened and shocked by the passing of Joe Diffie. Every day we are reminded that COVID-19 is real,fatal, and plays no favorites. Joe was a fellow Okie and a part of the 90's resurgence of Country Music. I guess I my favorite Joe Diffie tune will always be Prop Me Up Against the Juke Box. Have a blessed week.

  4. I really liked Joe Diffie and his John Deere Green song. May he rest in peace.

  5. Thanks for the trip down memory land- and the introduction to Joe Diffe.

  6. Nice tunes! That's really sad about Joe Diffie.

  7. Good list! We both did the Frankie Valli tune, and I did The Four Tops' cover of "Walk Away Renee" becaudse I liked it better.

  8. Walking's okay. It's just a matter of passing people with a bit of distance. And it's good to get out.

  9. Fun. I love some of these. Also interested in participating. For selfish reasons (might discover something!), but interested.

  10. A great and classic set. Very nice. Thanks for sharing them.

  11. Alana,

    How are you doing? We're fine on this end. Just trying to adjust to the new norm with moderate success. It's funny my day isn't any different than before and yet I find I'm suffering from living life in limbo syndrome. I guess it's the dark cloud that I tell myself won't shadow my days in fact do just that. Your song selections are great and I appreciate how you paid a little tribute to the mewsician I didn't know Joe Diffie before now and am sorry to hear he died from the Coronavirus. Let's pray this passes quickly taking as few lives as possible. It would help if more people took it more seriously than they do. Stay indoors safe and healthy, my dear. xx

  12. Nice list of walking songs. Stay healthy.

  13. Great songs! I hadn't heard of some of these in years. I especially liked "Walk Away

  14. Great songs, Alana. We have forgotten about "Walk away Renee", so glad that we found it here again.😸Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞
