Stream of Consciousness Picks #MusicMovesMe

It's Monday, and we all know what time it is, right?

Yes, it's time for Music Moves Me!

Who are the Music Moves Me bloggers? We are bloggers who blog about music each Monday and if you have music to share with us, you are most welcome to join! (Music Posts Only-meaning at least one music video, please!)   First, there is XmasDolly.  Her co-hosts are: Stacy of Stacy Uncorked, Cathy from Curious as a Cathy, and me. 

We'd love more music lovers to join us.  It's easy! All you have to do is join the linky above with a music post that contains at least one music video (there must be a music video).  And that's it!

Each month we have a guest conductor. Today, for the month of October, we once again welcome John from The Sound of One Hand Typing.

John's theme for today is "You Pick".  Some weeks, I know just what I want to pick.  This week was one of the other weeks. Finally, I came to a decision.  Just start somewhere, and wing it.

I have so many choices, so, why not start with a song about having to make a decision?

Let's start with the Talking Heads, and "Should I Stay or Should I Go?"

No pressure, of course.  Queen and David Bowie with "Under Pressure". The video is a combining (maybe the wrong word) of three performances, as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury never performed this together on the stage.


Who wants to be under pressure, though?  Let's experience the Eagles again, this time with "Peaceful Easy Feeling" from 1972. 

At this point, my spouse (who doesn't even read my blog) started naming Eagles songs he likes, and one of them was "Witchy Woman", also from 1972.


Then, we started to think of songs with Witch in the title and what I decided on was a Rush song recorded the night John Lennon died, a song called "Witch Hunt". It starts a little slow but hang in there. 

 

Finally, thinking of John Lennon made me think of this song from 1973 called "Mind Games".  The video has an interesting history, which you can read if you click through to You Tube to watch this video.

That's it for my Stream of Consciousness picks for today.  I may try this again, if I hit another You Pick writer's block. 

And that's a wrap!  Join me again next week, same time, same place!

  2. Alana,

    I've always liked The Eagles. Their sound is timeless and it always transports when I hear "Peaceful Easy Feeling". "Witchy Woman" is a good song choice with Halloween in less than 2-weeks. Gee, how the time flies! Oh yeah, "Mind Games" is great oldie! Thanks for sharing the dance floor with me, darlin'! Have a boogietastic week!

  3. There are a few groups that just stop me in my tracks when their music is playing. Creedence Clearwater Revival comes to mind, but the king of the hill in my music world is definitely The Eagles. Have a blessed week.

  4. I think a lot of us just started somewhere and winged it (wung it?).

  5. Queen with David Bowie--that would be quite a concert.
