Are You Ready For Music Monday?

Are you ready for this weeks #MusicMonday? How do you get ready? I’m glad you asked. This Monday music lovers from all over the blogosphere will publish their lists of the bands they’ve seen live. Want to join in? Just create a simple post with a list and maybe a picture or two of bands that you’ve seen live in concert. Then link to this post and I’ll visit and retweet your post. The idea is for everyone to visit each others posts and talk about our favorite bands with each other.

I hope this works and it’s not my lonely list! See you Monday! ~Phil

Next Weeks Music Monday: We’re All Going To Do It Together!

Yes, that’s right, next week you’re going to participate in Music Monday. I started Music Monday because on a Monday morning when you’re heading back to work, sometimes it’s hard to get motivated. I thought that if I started the week with a great song it would lift my mood and give me energy. I started posting different songs every week. Over time I found a couple other blogging friends that love music as much as I do, Hayley of Just Another Blog from A Woman and Steve of Talk About Pop Music.

We thought it would be fun next Monday to post a list of music acts that we’ve seen in concert to compare and discuss. Here’s where you come in: We want you to do it too. I’m imagining people reading each others lists and commenting with things like, “I love them but I haven’t seen them yet. How are they?” Or maybe, “When did you see them? What? I was at that show too!” Or “I got close enough to catch a guitar pick!” Maybe even, “That was the worst concert ever!”  Whoever you like, there’s bound to be someone else on the interwebs that wants to talk about them too.

So next Monday, April 16th, I want everyone to celebrate Music Monday by posting their list of the bands they’ve seen in concert. Let’s fill the internet with music and connect with each other. If you link to me or tag me in some way, I’ll share everyone’s posts to my Twitter with #MusicMonday.

And just to get you going for today, here’s a video of my favorite band to see live, Green Day.

Have a great Monday and start working on your concert lists for next week! Maybe we’ll make Music Monday as big as Thursday Doors! If you’re going to do it, leave a comment today and link to me next Monday so I can remember to visit you and tweet you!

Music Monday! Girls Generation & the Better Late Than Never guys

The video below is from the NBC show Better Late Than Never and features Girls Generation, the most popular pop act in South Korea with the guys from Better Late Than Never: Terry Bradshaw, former NFL quarterback and sports broadcaster, actor Henry Winkler, famous as Fonzie from Happy Days, 87 year old William Shatner from Star Trek and Boston Legal, George Foreman, former heavyweight boxing champ, and comedian Jeff Dye.

If you get NBC, Better Late Than Never is a fun show with the four oldsters and den mom Jeff Dye going on adventures all over the world. If you’re in North Korea, you can’t hear Girls Generation (여왕의 귀환!소녀시대, 정규) because the government has banned their music. Once in 2015 at the demilitarized zone South Korea blasted their music into North Korea. In the rest of the world you should be fine. Below is 72 year old Henry Winkler showing that he’s still got some moves as he dances to Uptown Funk with Girls Generation:

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! New Politics: Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

This is my favorite song by this band that is originally from Denmark but is now based in NYC. This is a very catchy, danceable tune. I’m featuring them this week because I had planned to see them this Friday but had to cancel due to other plans. They’re one of those bands that has a following but definitely deserves to have more fame and popularity.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! Africa by Toto: The Music and The Memes

Feel free to Google “Toto Africa memes” for more. Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! Dreamers

Dreamers is a trio from Los Angeles that I discovered last year and am happy to be going to see live later this month.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! The Wrecks

I like this band for two reasons. 1. I legitimately like their music. 2. The guitar player, Westen Weiss, was in a local band that my son’s band used to open for, and once my son played with them because they were missing a bass player. Westen moved on and is now touring nationally. I’ll be paying to see Westen and his mates later this month on The Wrecks tour. Here is their song, Panic Vertigo:

Have a great Monday! ~Phil
