Musical Monday # 84

Musical Monday

I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site.

I think it’s a fun way to show off some of the music we like and brighten up our Mondays at the same time. 

I’ll be finding my clips on you tube, so will simply credit that site since there are often so many versions of everything and I wouldn’t want to accidentally credit the wrong artist.

Today’s clip is:  John Mellencamp

R.O.C.K. in the USA 

and for those who prefer a different sound:

Hooked on a Can Can 

and the dance

Just look at all that energy! Doesn't it make you wish.......


  1. Wow...can those girls 'hoof it'.

  2. Reminded me of the movie "Moulin Rouge"!!

  3. Rocking and Can Canning...rolling and kicking our way into Monday. We'll boot-scoot this week into good shape!

  4. The Can Can, remember when I could do that!

  5. Delores; while I can barely stumble into the kitchen some days (*~*)

    fishducky; there was a clip available from that movie, but it was poor quality. This was the best I could find.

    Lee; boot-scooting! There's something I'd like to learn. I don't think my legs would be happy about it though, there's a lot of aching going on there lately.

    Margaret-whiteangel; you used to do that? I'm very impressed.

  6. ... Hi River... I loved the videos for today.. happy and energetic....
    I really liked your photo story of the rain and flash flood... glad you got home before it started.. I like Angel's friend Sweetie too..
    Hugs... Barb xxx

  7. WOW the can can in all different flavors. Like Baskin
    Robbins but maybe you don't have them but I'm sure you have something like it.
    It made me want to get right up and kick. LOL

  8. I've seen Mellencamp in concert at Madison Square Garden and he's very energetic.

  9. Barbara; I do like happy and energetic music, it gets my feet tapping, so at least part of me is moving while I sit here at the computer for way too long each day. Sweetie is lovely, I don't often see her, she sticks close to home.

    Manzanita; I knew you'd like this. I made me want to get up and kick too, but I remembered my back and decided the resulting pain wasn't worth it.

    Happy Elf Christine; I haven't seen Mellencamp even on TV, but with such energetic music he's bound to be energetic himself.

  10. I love the CanCan but it's so gentile these days. Why was it banned in the wild times, knickers in those day was just two legs joined by tape at the waist so a high kick was worth the wait for dirty old Parisians and the Prince of Wales who was a frequent visitor to the music halls.

  11. JahTeh; that's the type of video I was thinking of, but couldn't find any. It's all sanitised and safe now.
