Mondays are for music around here, and this week’s theme at Monday’s Music Moves Me is “Songs from around the world in honor of World Music Day”, courtesy of Michele from Musings and Merriment with Michele. What a great theme! I’ll be putting my own spin on “world music” by selecting songs from bands from around the world instead of from the actual world/global music genre.
From Ireland, Van Morrison – “These Are The Days”
Is there ever really a bad time for Van Morrison?
From Brazil, Sepultura – “Roots Bloody Roots”
Love the percussion in this one!
From Finland, Apocalyptica (featuring Gavin Rosedale of Bush) – “End Of Me”
Metal with cellos!
From Jamaica, Bob Marley – “No Woman No Cry”
Reggae is very world-music-appropriate, right?
What music from around the world do YOU love? Be sure to head over to Dolly’s to see what the other participants are listening to and maybe contribute your own post while you’re there.
Oh, and I also have a winner for my 06.15.2020 Battle of the Bands if you’re interested!
