Mondays Music...Feb, 25, 2013

Wow, here it is the last Monday of February. Time has flown!
Of course it being Monday, that means Mondays Music Moves Me with the train crew hosted by Xmas Dolly. She gets tons of help from Callie, Stacy and Cathy and honorary co-host Becca.

This week we have a theme and that is songs that bring back a good memory and for grins, tell why.  This should be interesting!

First up:  Although I am quite aware this is a Christmas song, it also one of my favorites. My parents had an album that had this song on it. Every year my brothers and I would play all the Christmas albums but this was a favorite that got played over and over.

A typical  family Christmas photo-craziness!

This song reminds me of all our wonderful Christmases together as a family. In 2010 was the last time that we would ever have a Christmas as I always knew them.

Next: This one is an odd one because it is for a game show. I know, crazy right? Here me out.
For as long as I could remember my Grandma loved to watch Wheel of Fortune (she never missed it). My Mother and I often sat down and watched it with her.

When I had my children and they were very young, we would watch it in the evening together. We watched it so much that my children actually learned their letters and how to spell in some ways.

Tamirisc and I watch it every evening at home to this day.
Again, it is a beautiful memory of family and as Wheel of Fortune is 30 years old, I have grown up with it my entire life.

Listen to the 7 theme songs (if you can believe it).
Note: This is long so just listen to a couple.

Lastly: This song is one I have posted before but it has such special meaning to me.
When I first met Tamirisc for the first time on Labor Day weekend in 2008, we were having dinner at his (then) place. We were listening to a variety of music over dinner when this song came on. He looked at me and I at him and we both said at the same time, "this is our song".

This is us on that long weekend in 2008.

I never had an "our song" in my entire life. It was a beautiful and romantic moment.
Four months later, we would play it for our wedding day.

  4. Naila, these are wonderful songs! I was thinking of posting one of the Ray Conniff singers because these were songs that I used to listen to while vacation with my grandparents. I loved listening to their album at Christmas. It was my favorite one to play. BYW: I just love your St. Patrick's Day Theme!
