Blog Name Music and a Tribute #MusicMovesMe

It's Monday and you know what that means!

Who are the Music Moves Me bloggers? We are bloggers who blog about music each Sunday or 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!)   Our head hostess is Cathy from Curious as a Cathy,  and she is joined by the knowledgeable Stacy of Stacy Uncorked and (last but not least) me. 

Why not join our music loving folks?  It's so easy. All you have to do is join the linky above with a music post that contains at least one music video.  Without a music video, the post may be removed, or may be labeled *NO MUSIC*.  

Every other week is Free Choice, and on non-free choice weeks, we invite anyone (that means anyone) to suggest a theme.   There are still weeks without themes available for someone to suggest a theme for.  The 2023 themes so far can be found here.

Today's theme is  Use a band or artist to spell your full name, either real or blog.

I am choosing the first name of my blog:  Ramblin.  I am also paying tribute to the great David Crosby, who passed away on January 18 at the age of 81.  He had been in poor health for a long time.  A singer and songwriter, Crosby was a member of several groups, including the Yardbirds and the Byrds, and supergroups Crosby,Stills and Nash and Crosby, Stills, Nash andYoung.   He also performed solo. 

I'll sneak in a couple of songs related to David Crosby in the following list.

Reach Out I'll Be There - Four Tops (from 1966)

Another Day in Paradise - Phil Collins, with David Crosby as backup singer, from 1989.

Mr. Tambourine Man - the Byrds, from 1965.

Berlin and Metro.

Long Time Gone - Crosby, Stills and Nash, from 1969.

Intervention - Arcade Fire, my newest song on the list, from 2007.

New Year's Day - U2 (a little late).  Fun fact, this was released in January, 1983 - this song is now 40 years old.

And that's a wrap!  

Join us again next week for another episode of #MusicMovesMe.


  1. Love long time gone the best. Thank you for increasing my repertoire of music

  2. The four tops video isn’t showing up for me.

    I love how you combined the theme with your Crosby tribute.

    1. The first video is fixed now. Thanks for bringing to my attention.

  3. Alana,

    Great song set. After you shared with me the news of David Crosby's dying, I glanced over an article written about him. Are there rock and rollers who weren't heavily into substance abuse? Artists like Crosby have given us a lot of good music but the life hard in so many way. Have a boogietastic week, dear friend!

    1. I've wondered for a long time why it is that so many creatives end up with serious drug and/or alcohol problems. It's so sad. The life really is hard.

  4. How was Crosby involved with The 4 Tops and Berlin? I'm curious. Lovevthe tribute and it seems, we lost a lot of musicians in the past month. I did a doubletake when you wrote that this U2 song was 40 yrs old...what the??

    1. I blogged that I would sneak a couple of David Crosby songs into the playlist and I guess I did too good a job of sneaking and not a good enough job of explaining. No, Crosby wasn't part of Berlin or The Four Tops. I had thought about making all my songs related to Crosby but decided against it.

  5. Well done. I didn't do this, but did find my name.

    Have a fabulous day and week filled with fabulous music. ♥

  6. Had the honor to hear the Four Tops and the Temp(tation)s live a few times in small events. They were the tops. CSN (and occasionally with Y) were at "big venue events". Mr. Tambourine glad Dylan let others sing that to entertain us. But to go from Tambourine man to electronic music? What a juxtaposition! And, then back to one of the best CSNY's. As my head was reeling, you brought in Arcade Fire- and then a U2 classic.
    I am reaching for my Chateauneuf du Pape, allowing my brain to languish and relax.
