I’m pretty sure it’s a rule that any major sporting event has to have an official song. If you’re the NFL, chances are you’re asking Carrie Underwood to perform that song. She sings the opening for Sunday Night Football and is an overall pleasure whenever she’s on TV. With NBC hosting the Winter Olympics and Superbowl LII, Underwood was called upon to deliver a jam. She did not disappoint.
Carrie Underwood featuring Ludacris – The Champion
I first heard this song Saturday and I haven’t listened to another song since. Carrie Underwood is her natural, wonderful self and Ludacris is the master of rapping over pop beats. If this was NBC’s plan to get me to tune in to the Winter Olympics, it worked like a charm.
Merry Christmas! I hope everyone out there is enjoying their holiday. Since Christmas fell on a Monday this year, I decided there was only one choice for Music Monday. DMX singing Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer should be the pick every Monday, but it especially fits on Christmas.
DMX – Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
When you think of X, you don’t jump to straight to Christmas songs. That should change now that he’s graced us with this wonderful cover of RTRNR. A few years ago The Rock sang Here Comes Santa Claus and it was glorious, but DMX is the new king of the Christmas song covers. I think this YouTube comment explained it best:
Dean Martin – Walking In A Winter Wonderland
This Music Monday pick was an easy one. Rhode Island got it’s first snow of the season over the weekend, so this song was playing on a loop in my house all weekend long. The only thing Dean Martin did better than drinking martini’s was singing songs, and that’s a scientific fact. Have a great day on purpose everybody.
Bonus picture of my dog running in the snow happier than any living being will ever be.
Music Monday 12/4/17
I watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2 over the weekend (again) and one of my favorite parts includes this song. When Yondu and Rocket are freed by Baby Groot and start taking people out with Yondu’s arrow, this song is playing in the background. It’s a great montage and a really fun part of a really great movie. If you haven’t seen it, you should watch it immediately and then listen to the whole soundtrack on repeat. Have a great day on purpose.
Music Monday – The RIghteous Brothers
I went out to the bar over the long weekend and this song came on the jukebox. If you’ve never heard this song or seen Top Gun, please listen to this song and then watch this scene and preferably the whole movie right away. You’re welcome. Have a great day on purpose everybody.
Francis And The Lights – May I Have This Dance featuring Chance The Rapper
This week’s music Monday pick is a combination of a song I’m obsessed with and Chance The Rapper ruling the world. I’ve been listening to May I Have This Dance like it’s going out of style, and Chance The Rapper had his SNL hosting debut Saturday night (which he killed). That’s a perfect combo for music Monday. Have a great day on purpose everybody.
Lionel Richie – Hello
This week’s Music Monday was easy because Lionel Richie came to me in a dream and wrote this blog for me.
If you know a better cure for the Mondays, write it down on a piece of paper, stick it in an envelope, get a stamp, seal it and shove it up your butt! Shout out Stanley. But really, I implore you to listen to 1984 classic, Hello and not feel overwhelmed with emotion. Does it get a little creepy? Sure it does. Does the music video make him look like a stalker? You bet. But when you have a head of hair and a mustache like Lionel does, none of that matters. Enjoy your Monday, y’all.
Welcome to Music Monday
If you came here looking for a nice upbeat song to get your week started off with a bang, you have come to the wrong place. I’ve been listing to CrazySexyCool like a mad man, and I don’t think any explanation of that is necessary. Have a great day on purpose everybody.
