Last week, I presented five songs that inspire me, in keeping with the M4 theme, and asked you which are the songs that inspire you. I got back a double album-sized list of songs, which I built into a YouTube playlist. You can see the whole playlist here, all eighteen songs, close to two hours’ worth of music. I already hit you folks with five songs every time I do one of these, and I thought eighteen was way too much. Then, I tried splitting the list in two, with the idea I’d do half today and half on Friday, but each list was close to, if not over, an hour, still way too much.
Finally, I landed on the perfect solution: tell you where the whole list was (which I’ve done), and pick a representative five songs to feature today. So, first, thanks to all my contributors…
- Ed Thierbach
- Halfmoon Mollie
- Susan Swiderski
- Dan Antion
- Janet Miles
- Patrick C (my brother)
The people I’ve linked to are other bloggers, so visit their blogs. If you’re not reading them, you’re missing a lot. I’ll bet the people not hyperlinked to could write some pretty good blogs, too, hint hint.
Now, on to the tunes… I picked these at random, in case you’re wondering…
Leaves of Grass – Gordon Lightfoot
Earth Song – Harry Belafonte and The Muppets
It’s My Life – Bon Jovi
Everyday People – Reba McEntire & Carole King
Right Here, Right Now – Jesus Jones
And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for August 29, 2016. Next week: Back To School Songs!
