October happenings!

If you have followed my blog in the past, you will already know that I love this time of year. I seriously love everything about it! The color. The leaves. Pumpkins. Halloween, Thanksgiving and then...Christmas! I get giddy thinking about it all.

You will also probably know by now that in the month of October, I usually have some sort of extravaganza to celebrate all things Halloween. This year is no different but I am toning it down just a teeny-tiny bit.

I have decided that this year I am only going to post a music video related to Halloween. You would be surprised at how many there really are. I had fun looking them up too. Each week will carry a theme...well, they should anyway but knowing me, that probably won't completely happen.

I will also be posting some other Halloween related things throughout the month but you certainly can count on the music every day.

On my reading blog, Reading Authors, I hope to post books related to Halloween as well. I am already starting off the month with a reading challenge that starts today.  I hope you will come and join me on both blogs.

Happy Fall Ya All!

Hi ya all! Have ya missed me...all 4 of you,
Seriously, I have been missing my music on Mondays but I have been hanging out with a one year old and 4 year old for a couple of weeks.

I am still out and about away from Colorado but I am aiming to get home soon! I thought since I was on a bit of a is almost 3 AM here...I thought I would hop on the musical train and enjoy the show. Don't forget this musical trip is conducted by Xmas Dolly and her co-conductors, Stacy, Callie, Becca, and Cathy! Whoot!

It just so happens I hit a week that is an odd theme but workable. This week is all about trains! So, I am digging deep on this one and as always things are up for interpretation...right? All aboard!

First up...
This song was a fictional train but became a quite popular song for the artist. The song has been done and re-done by many people including his own wife, June.

I had to pick this song for a couple of reason. First of all, he is named after one of the cars of the train. It is a name he took on and it stuck with him. His songs are often about the railroad in some form.
Secondly, I loved him sitting around with other country folk and just belting out a tune. This is something I have seen first hand in the "country" and lends itself to good times and special-ness.

I give you Box Car Willie!

Moving on...
This next song is unknown to me from this singer. It speaks of sweet innocence of children when the children in the song ask the singer, "Daddy What's A Train?"
Singer John Denver gives the answers within the song.

There are many songs about riding the rails of the railroad and taking trains. It is almost all gone and something of just shipping items across country. However, for many it was a lifestyle and the trains connected us from one state to another. We should all remember as they do in music.

I would be amiss if I did not include this song but mainly because I am a huge fan.

Have a great week! ~Naila Moon

BONUS WAIT...I used to sing this song as a young kid and often sang it to other kids.
