Taking A Peek Into November #Gratitude #AEDM2018 #Thanksgiving #arteverydaymonth2018

YAY! November is here! I am sorry that I went MIA at the end of last month but I got sick and then life just went batty. (ok, so that was a last-ditch Halloween reference)

So, moving on, I am looking forward to the Thanksgiving festivities, parades, and Hallmark Christmas movies. I know, I know, I am one of THOSE people, but I love it all!  I am also going to be flying out to visit family and a new grandbaby. Whoo hoo!

This month also begins again the annual Art Every Day Month. This annual event has been going on for 17 years now. It encourages those of us that wish to participate to be creative every day. It does not have to be "art" per se...maybe you like to cook, write, photography, or scrapbook. It is all creativity and that is the whole point Do you want to join in? Great! It is not too late. Link up is 3 lines up! :)

I cannot wait to see what you are doing this month and being grateful for as well. Happy Novemeber!


PS>Sorry for the overuse of exclamation points. I guess I just love this season so much, I need to use them!

Boo-ya! #MondaysMusicMovesMe #CryptKeeper #Halloween #music

Hello, you boo-tiful people! I am creeping out of the crypt today to hang out with a friend but before I do, I want to share Monday's Music Moves Me with you. I know it is Sunday but I am posting early so not to miss it.

Those fine creep-eeze...I mean the 4M's co-host this dance floor every Monday. You should know them by now: Xmas Dolly, Cathy, Stacy, Callie, and Alana are fabulous!
This week is a freebie week which is great for me as I spin the tunes of Halloween all month long. Make sure you link up below to follow along with others today.

This week I am beginning my homage to ghost or ghostly.
My first selection is from the well-known singer, Michael Jackson. This song, however, is not as well known for his repertoire. Here Michael is a ghost with epic dancing that he is so well-known for. Michael Jackson in "Ghost"

This last one I just had to add because the video is so ridiculous it made me laugh but this upbeat disco version of the song will be quite familiar. I give you the freaky ghosts of "Ghost Busters"!

See you this week with ghostly music and matters.

Your Crypt Keeper,
Michelle aka Naila Moon

The Week of the WItch Continues. #Halloween #music #CryptKeeper

*Cackles* Welcome back my ghoulish fiends. This week in the crypt I have been spinning the tunes about the witches. I missed out yesterday as I found myself being awful sleepy. Could it have been a spell put on me? Nah!

So to strike up a match under the cauldron, let me start out with this first song about a "Witches Rave"
This singer is new to me but he has an upbeat song that is pretty good. He is singing about missing out on the rave.

Rave: a lively party or gathering involving dancing and drinking

This next song has the subject in the title, "The Swamp Witch". Jim Stafford does not sing through the song but rather talks to music. The music has a throwback rockabilly sound to it. The video was made independently but goes quite well with the song. 
This is a song of a witch who gets accused and then is welcomed by a town near the swamp.

Bonus song because I missed yesterday.

This final song of the day is by a Native American band named Redbone. The beginning of the song has the guitar player playing with a drumstick. He makes the guitar sing as much as the song does. 

This song tells the tale of a witch in New Orleans who has potions of many people see her for but ultimately, she disappears.

Have a great evening. Leave me a comment on which (witch) song you like the most.

Your Crypt Keeper,

Day 10 #CryptKeeper #Halloween #Music

Welcome to back to my crypt. This week I have welcomed the witches into the crypt to take a spin or two around the room. I am honoring them by playing a couple of tunes each day they can dance to.

I did not realize how late in the evening it was but that is okay, I hear they like to dance by the light of the moon. hee hee...

My first selection is an oldie by a crooner who could bewitch you just looking into his eyes. I am talking about none other than Frank Sinatra, who sings about none other than, "Witchcraft"

Wrapping it up for the night, if you are in love, you can always call the "Witch Doctor" for what to do.

Goodnight, sweet dreams from your Crypt Keeper,
Michelle aka Naila Moon

Which Witch Is Witch? #Halloween #Music #CryptKeeper Day 9

Hello, it is I, your most lovely Crypt Keeper, Michelle aka Naila Moon. It is another full week of Halloween music and I am spinning the tunes about witches.

This month the season for the witches and how appropriate I would have a song with the same title. In fact, this time I have three different versions. I have the original by Donovan.

Then I have this one by Joan Jett.

And finally, this version by John 5 who is totally new to me. If you like heavy metal you will like him.

Which version did you like most? Tell me in comment.

See you tomorrow.
Cackling yours,
Michelle aka Naila Moon

Monday's #Music Moves Me In A Snap! #CryptKeeper #Halloween

photo credit could not be found

Welcome back to my spook-tacular blog. It is time for Monday's Music Moves Me with those fab-boo-less ghouls, Xmas Dolly, Cathy, Alana, Callie, and Stacy. 

Today they have a theme but as you know, I am posting Halloween music so, I try to incorporate their themes with my spooky music. It so happens, their theme this week is "Snaps or Clap." I am working on the theme of witches.

What better way to incorporate my first song that with the snaps of Morticia.

This next song does not meet my theme per se but for sure the 4M's and still keeping with the overall Halloween theme. I do love a good light show. This is appropriately called, "Handclap"

Make sure you link up your music with the 4M gals and tune in tomorrow as I continue on with my daily Halloween musical postings.  Don't forget to leave me a comment too.

Your Crypt Keeper,

Classic #Halloween Thriller! #CryptKeeper #music

Hello again! I missed a couple of days because I have been on grandbaby watch. My daughter is pregnant and she went into labor two days ago. She is too early and so they were watching here and trying to stop labor.  They managed to do so but are still on alert. I am excited to welcome another grandbaby to our family but we still need to wait just a little bit.

So forgive me for not posting Halloween music. However, I am here today and finishing up the week of monsters and zombies with the classic from Michael Jackson.

Enjoy and stay tuned later on this evening because Monday's Music Moves Me is right around the corner.
