Monday's Music Moves Me: Songs that Spell Out My Name

Another Monday is near! This Monday's Music Moves Me selection was chosen by The Sound of One Hand Typing. If you visit John's blog be sure to poke around. If you like fine music you may want to visit his site for a while. Song titles that start with each letter of your name is the same. So it would be four songs, one for M, one for I and so forth.

Mike is the name and rambling is my game!

"Magic Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf

"Iko, Iko" The Dixie Cups

"Knockin' on Heaven's Door" Bob Dylan

"Easy to Slip" Little Feat

Hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for a new post soon!

Fabulous 'Name' playlist. The only song selection I can't say for sure I've heard before now is your last pick, "Easy To Slip". I was only 11 years old when it released. I read at Songfacts..."This is probably the song that convinced Warner Bros. not to drop the band because it showed their commercial potential. Ironically, neither the song nor the album charted."

It's great to have you on the dance floor with the 4M gang, my friend. Have tunetastic week and rock on!

Mike, One more thing if you don't mind I have a suggestion. You may wish to have your comments open in a separate window so your readers can listen to your mewsic while leaving their thoughts. :) TTFN, my friend!

Between Iko Iko (haven't heard that one in a while, but I loved the Dixie Cups growing up - especially Chapel of Love) and Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf is one of my husband's all time favorites) this was a fun way to start the morning.

We both picked Iko Iko, I picked the newer version by the Belle Stars. Great songs you have there.

Great songs today, Mike!

I like how you spell your name :) Nothing like some good toe-tapping fun to start the week off right.

Hi Mike.
Great songs you chose. I almost used Magic Carpet Ride. I still might. I so loved this theme that I put together three (so far) playlists --- I posted the first one on Monday but went back the next day I think it was and added two more playlists so if you haven't seen the two new ones, stop over when you get a chance and give a listen. Some great music there and songs that I haven't heard in a while.
I also used Knockin' on Heaven's Door. That's one of my favorite songs of all time.
I wasn't familiar with Little Feat's song so that was cool. Thanks for the introduction.

Have a good rest of the week,
Michele at Angels Bark

I hadn't heard Iko Iko for years. It sounds great. Thanks for sharing all the songs.
