Welcome to Monday…the day of the week that most everyone dreads. No other day requires a pick-me-up more so than Monday. So why not infuse it with music…and a blog hop with friends on another Music Moves Me Monday.
When I began work on this week’s submission, I knew that the theme for March 7th is favorite female artist…and I was aware that today is March 7th…but what I failed to recognize is…that today is favorite female artist day. Oops. Misfire.
Anyway…today…I don’t fit the theme, but I still want to play!
I’ve been working on my digital photos a lot recently, largely because of this weekly meme. It’s something I’ve been meaning to get done for years now…and it’s a rather large project that keeps growing. I’m happy to be tackling the task at last!
While thumbing through my files, I noticed that I’ve acquired a rather large collection of flower photos. Easily large enough for at least one entirely floral-musical arrangement…no people, no critters, nothing man-made. Nothing but flowers.
Then I thought a lot about the perfect song to go with my slides. Ricky Nelson’s “Garden Party” came to mind, along with Led Zeppelin’s “Going to California”. Nice songs…but not a perfect fit. I considered Tom Petty and Tiny Tim…Guns n Roses and Poison. All have songs with flowers in the title and lyrics…but they just weren’t “moving” me.
I headed to my CD collection and once again, I went straight for Talking Head’s “Sand in the Vaseline”. I remembered a song on it that mentions flowers…one that I really like…but couldn’t remember what it was called or much about the lyrics. I went down the list of song titles and about fell over when I found my song.
My selection this week is “(Nothing But) Flowers.” Is that a perfect fit or what?!
