Music Monday for 09.30.2019

EDIT: Linky Tools is still not working for me. Cathy was kind enough to help a gal out last week by uploading a pic for me, and I am so thankful. However, I still can not get Mr. Linky to pull a photo from my site, OR let me upload one manually. I have no clue if it’s a blog issue, a size issue (I have resized several photos, and none have worked), or a computer issue. I am still working on it, but I may have to just leave links to all I visit until I can figure this out. Your patience is appreciated!

Farewell, September! You blew in and out of here so fast my head’s still spinning, and I still haven’t updated with my concert review from August, or my birthday trip to Memphis mid-month. I may never get around to it! But I digress. It is Monday, and Mondays are for sharing music!

The theme over at Dolly’s is “First Grade Songs – songs that were popular the year you were in first grade (or when you were 6 yrs old).” I started first grade at five years old, in 1975. A quick Google search showed me there was indeed a great selection of music available to choose from that year. But since the theme specifies first grade or six years old, I decided to go with songs from 1976, since I both turned six by the time 1976 rolled around, AND that was the second half of my first grade year. These are my favorites of the ones I came across! But only six, and it was kind of hard to narrow it down:

  1. Fleetwood Mac – “Rhiannon”
  2. Electric Light Orchestra – “Strange Magic”
  3. The Runaways – “Cherry Bomb”
  4. Bellamy Brothers – “Let Your Love Flow”
  5. Eagles – “Take It To The Limit”
  6. Ramones – “Blitzkrieg Bop”

Feel free to listen/check out the videos below…

What music was popular the year YOU were six, or when you were in first grade?
