Musical Monday # 85

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 from the sadder and gentler side of things: Kenny Rogers and Dottie West

Till I Can Make It On My Own

and the lyrics, sung by Martina MacBride.

(ignore the excess commas and apostrophe's)


  1. Too sad for a drizzly Monday morning. And I see what you mean about the commas and apostrophes. It seems they just shook them over the lyrics and let them land where ever.

  2. Dottie of the great women country singer/songwriters. Her talent, her music influenced many others.


  3. Such gentle songs to hear on a wet rainy day.

  4. Elephant's Child; too many people don't know where the punctuation belongs, so sprinkle them liberally, just in case.

    fishducky; glad you liked it.

    Lee; I'd never heard of Dottie West until I came across another Kenny Rogers duet with her. Another one gone too soon.

    Susan Kane; I like the gentle now and again.

  5. That is a lovely song that Martina sings.
    The comers, oh my....interesting where they are placed.

  6. Margaret-whiteangel; some people just have no idea where a comma should go, ditto the apostrophe's.

  7. Well I do know who Kenny Rogers is but have never heard of the two female vocalists. Not into that type of song perhaps so not surprised at my ignorance.
    Punctuation is an art and whoever punctuated those words was no artist.
