Guess what time it is? Yes, it is time for Music!
Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We are bloggers (and perhaps also musical elves) 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!) First,
there is XmasDolly, Her co-conductors are: Stacy of Stacy Uncorked, Cathy from Curious as a Cathy, and me. (All, please note Xmas Dolly has a new blog location. Please use this link.)
For the month of December our theme is "Christmas Music" except for today. Our theme for today is "Music about this Year or about New Year's".
Oh, where do I start? 2020 is All About the Pandemic, like it or not. (And who likes it??)
I don't listen to Pitbull that often, although, when I did water Zumba years ago, one of his songs was part of one of our routines. For the pandemic we start off with Pitbull's "I Believe That We Will Win/World Anthem." This is one upbeat song that will get your dancing feet moving.Christmas was different for so many. We needed a song such as Twenty One Pilot's Christmas Saves the Year. I love the video, too.
What does a rock star sound like without his band? Just one person and a guitar? Here is Jon Bon Jovi and "Livin' on a Prayer" for a New Jersey pandemic benefit several months ago.
We all want to fast forward to New Year's Eve, don't we? Why don't we?
Or we can go back to 1965, and watch the ball drop in Times Square. I saw this live on New York City TV; we never dared go down there. Seeing a crowd of 700,000 watch the New York City ball drop now would be inconceivable. The broadcaster was the late, incomparable Ben Grauer; to me he will forever be the voice of New Years Eve. And Guy Lombardo the official music maker. Yes, I'm showing my age. Proudly.
Speaking of Guy Lombardo....enjoy his music, and the vintage photos.
Mariah Carey and Auld Lang Syne. Maybe not totally traditional, but I like it.
Now let's pretend it's the new year. How about an oldie? The Zombies and "This Will Be Our Year".
It's a wrap! See you same time, same place....new year...next Monday!
