OUR SPOTLIGHT DANCER IS:  #13 Time Out for Mom
Don’t forget to follow everyone! Now let’s ROCK!  

So our theme this week was picked by Mark, from Chronicles from the Man Cave find songs about “Moving Forward”. Any songs that have to do with moving forward in one’s life.  So one I thought of was this.  It became my theme song right after I got divorced.  In fact, my oldest daughter bought me this album for Christmas with her first check from her first job!  Too cute. I was so proud of her!

Gwen Guthrie – Ain’t Nothing Going On But The Rent

And also there was one other song I connected with at the same time.. right before my X-left… Come on now I know you know this one…
Then there was a time when I worked Chicago downtown, and it was just the opposite, but the song still reminded me of my man when I moved on after a bad marriage.


And then after all the work, schooling, and more work he walked into my life, and I have been happy ever since, and when I hear this song although it sings “She believes in me” I change it to He. Yes, I moved on to a much better life, a happier life.

WELL THAT’S IT!  TOO ALL MY FRIENDS OUT THERE IN BLOGLAND – WHO LUVS YA BABY!!!  NOW HOP AWAY AND SEE HOW MANY MORE TUNES YOU CAN FIND TO ROCK THE HOUSE!

    The sun does shine after a bloody rain. Moving forward is for winners. I sooo love “She Believes in Me.”


    Love your choices this week Gwen Guthrie and Sheena Easton brings back a few memories heheh!, the film RAY about Ray Charles life was on TV here yesterday.

    Glad to see your back and in good form Marie have a tanfastic week ahead;-)

    “Does a twirl and high kick lands with the splits and rips trousers as he leaves the blog”


    I adore your picks, my friend and I laughed out loud as Steve ripped his trousers.


      Had an appt. this morning, and I need to go to another quick one, but I’ll hop with you all in about a half hour. Thanks Thanks for stopping by my dear friend you always put a smile on my face when I see you’re here. Steve is a card isn’t, but ya gotta luv him just the way he is. I wouldn’t change a hair on his head…. hmmmmm wonder if he has any hair on his head? 🙂


    Great story you’ve shared with us of your journey on “moving forward” and I for one am happy that your story has a happy ever after ending. Love your song selections! I hope Steve is gonna be okay. I guess he didn’t get the memo that disco moves can be a little embarrassing at times.

    It was tons of fun dancing with you today, my friend. Keep up the recovery and don’t over do yourself. XOXO!


      I enjoyed the dance too, and it’s great to get back into the groove, and see all my ol’ friends comin’ over to see me & have a dance or two. I missed everyone soooo much! But the ol’ girl is back and ready to boogie!!!! Thank you again my friend for holdin’ down the fort and keepin’ our ENGINE running!!! hugs


    Great story that you told through song! You moved on to better times for sure, mama!


    I love that your songs are linked to a significant period in your life, and hurrah for happy endings!


    Cool set of tunes,ans since there is no linky thingy here’s my posting.


      Michael you are driving me bonkers cuz I’m not sure what you’re saying I don’t have You said no linky thingy it’s right there see….. left hand side bottom of the post… What is a blog hop?
      Get the code here… That’s what I just copied if that’;s what you’re talking about, and as far as a linky you signed in, so that’s a linky! So what is this linky thingy YOUR talking about cuz I definitely want to please all my readers/friends. I’ll be stopping by you shortly! Thanks for rockin’ along!!!


    I’m here..I made it..LoL… I can see you see life through song. It is funny how certain songs just create a feeling that can be quite personal even more than the songs artist/writers ever intended. Thanks for hosting this musical party!


    I love Kenny Rogers and I don’t care who knows!!! Haha. saw him in concert when I was a little girl, so his songs bring back great memories. I actually sing Morning Train in my head when I used to take the bus to work. Great songs this week! Glad you are back rocking with us.


    Oh….forgot my Theme Suggestion

    How about a Guys and Dolls theme? songs about, or with either Man, Boy, Girl, Woman in the title?
    i.e. When A Man Loves a Woman


    For real there aint nothing going on but the rent here.

    Love the hits Doll.

    NOW Please take it all slow okay.

    You are in my prayers.


    With bill collectors at the door, it’s time to hit the road Jack. Fun.


    You picked some good ones!! Hit The Road Jack is gonna be stuck in my head the rest of the day, I’m sure.

Thanks for the lovely comment!
