Today is Memorial Day in the United States, a day when we remember the men, women, and animals who lost their lives in service to this country. I don’t think it would be inappropriate to include police officers and firefighters in that blessed band.
Anyway, today we’re going to do one of my favorite themes: Musical Acrostic, where we choose songs that, when you read the first letters of each title, spells out a phrase, in this case "MEMORIAL DAY." I looked back in the archives, and I did one of these last year, so I was sure to choose different songs this year.
- “Moonlight Feels Right”, Starbuck
- “Electric Avenue”, Eddy Grant
- “Messin’ With The Kid”, Junior Wells
- “Out In The Country”, Junior Wells & Buddy Guy
- “Reminiscing”, Little River Band
- “I Am The Walrus”, The Beatles
- “Arthur’s Theme”, Christopher Cross
- “Like To Get To Know You”, Spanky & Our Gang
- “Dang Me”, Roger Miller
- “Amos Moses”, Jerry Reed
- “Your Momma Don’t Dance”, Loggins & Messina
Have a safe and peaceful Memorial Day. That’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for May 30, 2022.
