Music Monday

Check in with Soccer Mom in Denial who started Music Monday and see who else is playing!

This is my first Music Monday:

There is a song that just makes me happy. I’m happy when I hear it, I’m happy when I sing it. I was introduced to it when I first watched the movie, You’ve Got Mail, with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. It just sets the tone to the entire movie--and it took no time at all for me to fall in love with it.

Once you’ve heard it, I think you’ll agree, you just have to smile and tap your toe. Have a listen. Also go to YouTube and do a search for other Harry Nilsson songs--he wrote “Everybody’s Talkin’ At Me” for the movie Midnight Cowboy, as well as “I Guess the Lord Must Be In New York City”, which was also in You’ve Got Mail.

I love that movie too...and love the soundtrack! Now I'm adding these songs to my iPod on my way to work.

Have a nice week!

I am so glad you played along.

For several years the boys and I would hear on Seseame Street this little piano "ditty" about writing a letter. We finally discovered it was Fats Waller. I still love I'm Gonna Sit Right Down, and Write Myself a Letter.

A reminder of a great song... and a wonderful movie! I'm so glad you played along... (and if I had cooperative bandwidth, I'd play along, too!)

I love that song! And I have You've Got Mail - must have watched it a dozen times. My Music Monday is also dog-related - you must be reading my mind.

Isn't it funny how certain songs affect us? Nice song.

I LOVE Harry Nillson. In fact, my first, ever record that I bought with my own money was Nillson Schmillson. Great song!
