Rainbow Songs #MusicMovesMe

 It's Monday, and it's time for music!

Who are the Music Moves Me bloggers? Well, we are a group of music loving 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! Otherwise, your post may be labeled "No Music".  Our head host is Xmas Dolly, and our co-hosts are Cathy from Curious as a Cathy, joined by the knowledgeable Stacy of Stacy Uncorked and, last but not least, me.

Every other week, we have a theme.  On alternate weeks, we can blog on any music theme we want. This week our theme is Freedom of Music - our choice of music.

Last Friday I wrote a blog post about a red rainbow I saw recently.  I decided to dedicate my blog post to rainbows.

First, let's return to 1967 with a psychedelic video - She's a Rainbow - The Rolling Stones.

Since I saw a red rainbow, why not sing about a Silver Rainbow, as Genesis did in 1983?

Pocketful of Rainbows - Elvis Presley, from 1960.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow is known to most of us as a song from the Wizard of Oz movie, sung by Judy Garland.  But I am going to choose a cover sung by the late Israel Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole, who died young at age 38.

How about a song with a country vibe? Rainbows All Over Your Blues - John Sebastian.

I will end this, returning to rock, with Dio and Rainbow in The Dark, from 1983.

Join me again next week for another episode of Music Moves Me.


  1. ...I wish you a rainbow day.

  2. Rainbow is a good theme. You introduced some new songs to me with your picks - excellent job! Have a boogietastic week, dear Alana!! xo

  3. Love how you did this. Loved that you ended with some Dio. Very nice.

  4. I especially love that cover of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

  5. I've never heard of a red rainbow and had to look it up. Live and learn;-)

  6. To reveal where I am...Somewhere Over the Rainbow LOL

  7. Alle Farben (And Robin Schultz I think) did a dance version with Israel Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole rendition. It's really great....(Maybe it was Lost frequencies...I played it a lot in lockdown)

  8. What a fun, eclectic lineup of rainbow songs! ☺ Love the Stones' psychedelic video, especially. The Dio video is not available in Canada, but I found an alternate, in case you have more visitors from here: Rainbow In The Dark

  9. Great list! I'd add Al Jarreau with "Look To The Rainbow."
