Who are the Music Moves Me bloggers? We call ourselves 4Mers and this is who we are:
The Head 4M'er (Engineer) is XmasDolly. Her co-conductors are: ♥Callie of JAmerican Spice♥, (who right now is doing on and off visits) and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥ Also, ♥Cathy from Curious as a Cathy♥ and ♥Michelle from Michelle's Musings and Merriment♥. And, ahem...me.
But before I begin, I am remembering the most inspirational moment I can remember in a long time - the sermon in the royal wedding Saturday given by the Reverend Michael Curry and the rendition of Ben E. King's Stand by Me that was such an inspiration to me.
And now, what music is moving me today?
Remember (Walking in the Sand) - the Shangri-Las from 1964.
September When I First Met You -sung by the late, soulful, Barry White, from 1978. I so remember that soulful voice. White died at age 58 from kidney failure, waiting for a kidney transplant.
From 1985, Don't You (Forget about Me) - Simple Minds. Many remember this from the opening and closing credits of the movie "The Breakfast Club". It was Simple Mind's first hit, and only #1 hit in the United States.
A song by one of the guests at the royal wedding Saturday - Sir Elton John singing a rewritten "Candle in the Wind" as "Goodbye English Rose" at the funeral of Prince Harry's mother, Princess Diana, in 1967.
Another Elton John song about remembering - Crocodile Rock.
I end on an upbeat note, September - Earth, Wind and Fire.
Today, we should all remember the power of love "the redemptive power of love", in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "Love is the only way".
See you next week for another Monday of music.
