Monday’s Music & Words Award #music #MWA

 

Good morning!

Did you miss me? I have to say thank you to those that stopped by last week to leave love notes and hugs on my post about taking the week off.

It was a wonderfully relaxing even though I worked for three days.

Then two days of nothing except what we wanted and quiet!

 

PURE BLISS!

In my absence, I was nominated no, lets use the word tagged –  for not one, not two, but THREE little recognition’s.

One of the nominations was waaaay before I took a break but life as we all know can fly by at warp speed.

So I will conquer and accept that one first.

WHAT DOES MUSIC MEAN TO YOU?

Put simply…

WHAT IS YOUR FIRST MUSIC-RELATED MEMORY?

My mother took me to my first country concert after I injured my knee playing kickball resulting in cracking it completely. I was so upset because I was stuck in a brace for 8 weeks and couldn’t run.at.all.  Who remembers Alabama? They were playing at Texas Stadium in 1986. The line for the elevator was ridiculous so the gentleman my mom was dating at the time scooped me up and carried me the 4 flights of stairs to get to our seats.

WHAT’S THE FIRST ALBUM YOU’VE PURCHASED YOURSELF?

One in which my mother was not thrilled about to at all, but allowed it to happen because it was my babysitting money after all, not hers 🙂

I believe if memory serves, Bon Jovi’s “Slippery When Wet” was the next one.

My poor, poor country music loving mother prayed it was just a phase.

WHAT’S THE LATEST MUSIC YOU’VE PURCHASED? (NO ONLINE STREAMING OR FREE DOWNLOADS, I’M TALKING ABOUT CASH HERE!)

I purchased with plastic which is tied to my checking account so in theory it was cash via iTunes the following winner!

WHAT SONG DID YOU LISTEN TO LAST? (NO CHEATING, COME OUT WITH THE DIRTY PLEASURES!

I had Pandora on and was listening to Richard Marx radio which played this beauty.

And up until this very minute I hadn’t put two and two together. Check this out. He was the lead singer for another crazy big hair rock band I drove my mother nuts with back in the day.

My mother truly was a saint during my early years.

Lastly, those I know that can inspire us more with music and words are:

  1. Awesome! Thanks for nom. This is a different kind of nomination. I like it. I’m hesitant to write this week because of the A-Z challenge starting on Friday. So this is perfect 🙂

  2. I have this in my To Do blog drafts and I am itching to get at it! I don’t do many music posts anymore and it will be wonderful to visit the past and share some new. Of course I remember Alabama — I’m a country girl! LOL
    And Bon Jovi is never a phase, is he? I mean…. Jon!!!
    I got the Thriller album for my birthday one year and at first I was so disappointed because I didn’t really like him. But I definitely grew to appreciate his musical genius.
    I listened to the Waite song A LOT during a long distance relationship. I think I wore out the tape! 🙂

  3. Kisma, good answers, nice job! I remember when Michael Jackson did the Thriller tour. I wanted so much to go to it, but the tickets were outrageous. I tired everything to win tickets from the local radio station,too. So, DH and I drove down town, parked and walked around the coliseum with hopes of seeing something. The only thing we managed was to catch a few peaks…very small glimpse of figures too far to make out of MJ, but we could hear the music outside. It was SO loud. Thanks for playing along and sharing today!

  4. Now why haven’t I seen this. Thank you so much. It must have been one of those Mondays I was going through havoc in my life. So sorry. Oh wait, I checked and you didn’t sign up to Monday’s Music Moves me so I didn’t know about it… that’s okay. Thank you anyway… Great choices here.. I haven’t heard Mountain Music in like forever… between you and I I love country also. Thanks for or the cool stuff.

  5. Nice post. It’s interesting how our choices in music reveal so much about us, including our region, class and personal taste.

    1. Hey there, wow you dove into the archives and found a good one! Thank you so much for your kind words and yes, music is one thing I feel can reveal a lot about a person. I myself like to keep people guessing.

A penny for your thoughts...
