#4M More Indulgence - Songs About Mary


Time again for Monday’s Music Moves Me, otherwise known as #4M or M4, depending upon whom you are conversing with.  Today’s Theme is a freebie, so I decided to continue on with the self-indulgence (see Battle of the Bands post) theme.  Today, I have a few more songs with ‘Mary’ in the title. I’ve come up with 10, although I know there are more out there.



Kings of Leon - Mary




Scissor Sisters - Mary




Mary From The Dairy - Max Miller




CCR - Proud Mary




Kip Moore - Mary Was The Marrying Kind




Taylor Swift's Mary's Song (Oh My My My)




Danny Wilson - Mary's Prayer




Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers - Mary Jane's Last Dance




Rick James - Mary Jane




The Association - Along Comes Mary




Find the playlist for this post HERE

What is one of your favorite songs about Mary? Do you have a favorite song with your name in it?

Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by X-Mas Dolly, and co-hosted by JAmerican Spice, Stacy Uncorked and Curious as a Cathy.  Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.

  1. Mary,

    WOW, there sure are a lot of song titles with your name! I wish I could say the same about mine but there aren't too many. Heck, there aren't many song lyrics either! My favorite Mary songs are "Proud Mary" and "Along Comes Mary". All of your other selections are totally new-to-me. Of these, I really liked Scissor Sister's song. The mewsic arrangement really pulled me instantly! Have a fabulous day and thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M gang, my friend! :)

    Everyone is invited to dance with me at the Birthday Party for DH! ;)

    1. Thanks Cathy!

      I got the idea for this when I was working on the original 'songs with names in it' (that post will now be busted up and broken into a few more posts as the theme changed to be a bit more specific) It just sounded like a lot of fun.

      Thanks for stopping in to say hello!

  2. Hey Mary. It's Mary Day today! Girl, where do you find all these bands? I never heard of half of them! As for the new-to-me songs, I really like the Scissor Sisters one and also Kip Moore's "Mary Was the Marrying Kind." And I gotta say, I really like Taylor Swift. I've always been so dang impressed with that girl. She is incredibly talented as both a singer and a songwriter. So wealthy at such a young age, all self-made. Impressive!

    I had Tom Petty's "Mary Jane's Last Dance" in my post last week. That has to be one of the most disturbing videos ever! It creeps me out. And it won an MTV award for Best Video or something like that. Crazy creepy!

    I love the Association's "Along Comes Mary" -- they were cool performers. Have you ever seen the beginning of that TV appearance that you posted? It's creative.

    My favs of what you posted here: The Association's, CCR's and Tom Petty's (minus the freaky video)...
    GREAT stuff here today Mary! Thanks for the introduction to so many new-to-me bands and songs.

    Have a good week!

    1. Hey Michele!

      Where do I find these bands? Let me tell you, Google can be your best friend :) So many that I had not heard of, but wanted to share. I love it when I find something new. It kind of freshens up the place, don't you think?

      Thanks for stopping by for the dance!

  6. Whoa, I cannot believe I don't know a lot of the Mary tunes, but thanks for the introduction. Not bad! The vaudeville one is totally funny, loved it!! I love old movies. Who doesn't like Creedance Clearwater woo hoo! Taylor Swift had to be super young for that tune still doing country. The next ones are unfamiliar, but great listening tunes. My hubby does the Tom Petty tune in his band.. and I think everyone has heard Along comes Mary... huh? I remember singing that one in the car!! hahaha That was fun! You rocked the house girlfriend! GREAT JOB!

    1. Thanks John

      I had left out Mary Mary because that was my latest battle. Otherwise, at least one of the three versions would have been on the list.

  14. Here I am, five days late and $1,192.00 short.

    I didn't know all these, but the ones I did (CCR, Tom Petty, The Association), I like.

    The first one I think of is MARY, DID YOU KNOW?

    1. Thanks, Stephen

      They say it's better to be late than to be sorry. At least you made it :)

      This was a fun exercise and I found quite a few that I hadn't known about either.
