Monday's Music Moves Me: Songs with Male Names

Last week was so much fun! I'm back for more.

I'm stealing the above switch, because sometimes it is so true. Sometimes you just have to turn the switch on.

Today's theme is songs with male names. I'm not going to try to get them all. I will highlight a few and encourage you to visit the other participants for more.

"Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner" Warren Zevon

"Uncle John's Band" The Grateful Dead. So many from that band to use Tennessee Jed, Casey Jones, St. Stephen to name a few...

"Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" Paul McCartney and Wings

Led Zeppelin "Boogie with Stu"

Led Zeppelin "Poor Tom"

Jimi Hendrix "Hey Joe"

Lynyrd Skynyrd "The Ballad of Curtis Loew" 


Eight is enough.."Buddy Holly" Weezer

Stay tunes for tomorrow's Battle of the Bands post for more music!

You shared a number of songs I did not stumble across in my mewsic search, especially those by Led Zeppelin. I don't think I've heard any of these before no. "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" by Warren Zevon although the song title and artist did not ring familiar, I believe I've heard the song somewhere along the way not today, though. I hope you'll join Roy, Steve, Robert, James and me on the dance floor when you get a minute! Thanks for boogieing with the 4M gals!

Great to see you here in the blog hop! You picked some great tunes for the theme. Dead, Zep, Hendrix... my day has been made. Thank you!

Great collection, Mike! Even the one by The Dead is a good one, and I'm hardly a fan, let alone a Dead Head.

You added some to the list that I hadn't seen yet. Did anyone come up with "My Boy Bill" from the musical Carousel?

Hey Mike! I didn't know you were part of the 4M gang! Good to see you here. I'm late making the rounds, both here and with the BOTB posts but I'm getting there...
GREAT songs you picked for this theme. A bunch that I hadn't heard in years or even thought of. The two Led Zeppelin picks are awesome! And the Warren Zevon song: perfect! I think I put Hey Joe on my overall playlist... such a great musician there.

I'm skipping this coming Monday's 4M because I'm so far behind on so many things but I'll be around the following week. If you did a battle on the 15th, I'll get to that either today or tomorrow...
