MMMM: Columbus Day

Yes, I know, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, but I wanted to do a musical acrostic and that was too many letters. So, I did a musical acrostic on “Columbus Day” instead. It’s still the official name of the holiday in the United States. In Canada, of course, this is Thanksgiving, and if you live there, have a happy one. Anyway, my Columbus Day acrostic follows almost immediately.

C – Crazy – Patsy Cline
O – One Fine Morning – Lighthouse
L – Let It All Hang Out – The Hombres
U – Up, Up And Away – The 5th Dimension
M – Mambo No. 5 – Lou Bega
B – (The) Boys Are Back In Town – Thin Lizzy
U – Up On The Roof – The Drifters
S – Sunshine Superman – Donovan
D – Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is – Chicago
A – And I Love Her – The Beatles
Y – You Only Live Twice – Nancy Sinatra

And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for October 10, 2022.

  1. Great playlist. It was great, especially, hearing the Lighthouse song again. It’s been a long time. There is a Columbus statue near our county courthouse. I don’t know if it was vandalized this year but it has been in the past (on or near Columbus Day). And the point was….? (I’ll check out your link later). Alana ramblinwitham


  2. These are great song choices and some vastly different from the others. I live Chicago and the Boys are Back in town and love this James Bond theme.


    1. They had wanted Frank to sing it, but he turned it down, so they asked his daughter and she did a spectacular job. He would have been good, but she was even better.


  3. Hey John,

    I whole heartedly agree with Lee and you regarding Columbus. We all are guilty of doing things we shouldn’t but things in the past unfortunately was the way things were. All people are the same in the eyes of the Lord. Nuff said about that, you can’t change what was but move forward. Tearing down statues or crying over negative things that don’t affect anyone anymore, except to say out of bad circumstances came good things. Columbus was a courageous as were many of the explorers of yesteryear. We couldn’t do that today because we’re all spoiled silly with our modern conveniences and electronics. Why we can’t find our way around town without Google Maps giving us step by step directions. roll eyes The discovery of the Americas was a great thing eventually becoming a safe haven for many great inventors and entrepreneurs. I will check out the ink you referenced Lee to. I added your post to the 4M dance party. Thanks for the wonderful playlist. Have a boogietastic week, dear friend!


  4. Columbus has gotten a bad rap by the wacko left in recent decades. They’re idiots! Columbus was a hero despite the perceived “bad things” he may have done. He was a man of his times. I’d challenge any of those wimps pulling down his statues to do what he did. Glad you honored him in your post today.

      1. John,

        I just read this post. It’s excellent! I learned a lot from it but I know one thing when the left hates someone/thing then you know it’s gotta be a good person/thing. The post author did an excellent job defusing the negativity surrounding Columbus as myth, half-truths, or poor judgement. Columbus’ discovery brought calm to a continent that was being destroyed within prior to his entry to the Americas. As I said before, if the left talks smack about something then you know it’s mostly if not all a lie. Their objective is to cause confusion, disharmony, and unhappiness. That’s what we see going on today.
