The answer is:


That makes it … Brandee’s choice … again! definitely likes your choices, sweetie. 🙂

I have to confess, I do LOVE this song… but I also loved all the other suggestions! So much great music, so little time. Let’s do this again some time soon, folks, what do you say?

Thank you all for taking part, it’s been great fun!

Next week is launch week for Sophie’s Encore.
Yes. Really! It’s coming round really fast. Therefore…. next week Monday features a special edition of Music Monday to ring in the launch celebrations. Stay tuned for…

  1. Like! Like! Like! This is my ultimate feel good song 🙂

  2. Well we almost there. Almost back to a regular Music Monday where I won’t need to respond to multiple songs even though you’ve selected one at random. This week I feel somewhat frustrated since I can’t pull it off for a fourth time. The problem is I’ve responded with a song which sings about how they’re created, what we do with them, and the simple fact all of us love music. So I’m going to pretend it’s a regular Music Monday and simply select a song which matches the song you gave us.

    Since you’ve randomly selected a song which dealt with a single woman and the color of her eyes, I’m going to respond with one which deals with a woman and the color of her hair. ENJOY

    BTW – I could have selected “I Dream of Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair” which had been written by Stephen Foster in 1854; or “Black is the Color of My Love’s Hair” as sung by Celtic Woman”, but I wanted to select one which is somewhat more modern.

    • LOL, Robin, I’m sorry it proved such a challenge but as always, your song choice has come through trumps. I’m afraid to report that there’ll be multiple songs next Monday too, what with Dan’s secret playlist for Sophie… but I’m thinking that this probably will be a walk in the park for you! Here’s to one year of Music Monday choices and Robin’s responses: Happy Anniversary! X

      • THANKS for the compliment Nicky. There’s nothing to feel sorry about. I love it when I can’t think of a song instantaneously, it forces me to really reach back in my memories to find one or at least to think about part of one then try to search to find the rest.

  3. Yay! This really is one of my very fav songs, Nicky! This has been fun, so I hope you do it again sometime. And I hope you enjoyed your holiday! 😉

    • I’ll definitely do this again, Brandee ~ I massively enjoyed myself! And the holiday was great, I’ll be sharing photos on the blog on Friday. Rock on and thanks for all your support!
