Blue Monday? No way!

After a way-too-short weekend visit with the family out of state this weekend, it's time to return to the grind tomorrow. And yes, it has me feeling a bit sad. It is only fitting that the theme for this week's Monday's Music Moves Me over at X-Mas Dolly's is "the blues. Not necessarily Blues music, but songs that make you sing the blues (sad songs)." Well....I'll play along as best I can, but I refuse to listen to any sad songs. Sorry, y'all....but I don't need any help in that department most of the time! So, today you'll be getting a fully loaded post with some blues-y rock from me :)



First up....Monday, let me tell you how I really feel:

Blue Monday - Fats Domino



Traveling Riverside Blues - Led Zeppelin



Hangman Jury - Aerosmith



Ride On - AC/DC



Hello Operator - The White Stripes
OMG. LOVE Jack White. LOVE.


And here's more White Stripes, because I just love Jack so so so much! This is an AMAZING performance that made me have to fan myself after watching. If you watch only one video I've posted, it needs to be this one! You may have heard the recorded version in a semi-recent Captain Morgan commercial.

Ball and Biscuit - The White Stripes (Live @ Vh1)



Okay, as much as I love Jack White and could post nothing but his videos (his sound is VERY bluesy, after all!), my last video for today is by a band with the sexiest lead singer EVER. Period. Don't even try to argue with me - I won't hear it!

Roadhouse Blues - The Doors



Music Monday:

X-Mas Dolly
Run DMT
Loving Life
My So-Called Chaos

As always, if there are more, please let me know so I can add them to my list! Happy Monday!

    1. I would be a natural for the graveyard shift - and I might get to do that here soon, only trouble is, it will be on top of my other job. Gah, why does it have to be so hard to get by these days?

      So glad you could come by and enjoy some of the tunes...I just couldn't bring myself to do sad.

  10. I loved all of those but seeing Jim Morrison made my heart flutter. I have such a crush on that man. So hot.

    1. Me, too. I daresay he'd still make my heart flutter even at 69 years old - had he lived. He's hot, of course, but that voice - oh, my!

      Thanks for stopping by, Julie!
