#4M : Occupations, Part II

It’s Free choice week again for Monday’s Music Moves Me! If you recall from the last Free Choice week - I went with a theme of Occupations, but I had so many songs that I needed to split up the post. This here is part 2 of the theme.  Will there be a part 3? Read on...

A few weeks ago for Song Lyric Sunday, Jim over at A Unique Title For Me gave us the theme of ‘Occupation’.  My brain went a little crazy and went all sorts of directions before I finally settled on the song that I chose for that theme.  Note: I’m going to try to not re-use songs that were used in Song Lyric Sunday.  You can listen to Part 1 of this theme HERE if you’d like to revisit.

  • The Carpenters - Please Mr Postman
  • The Beatles - Paperback Writer
  • Thompson Twins - Doctor Doctor
  • Monty Python - The Lumberjack Song
  • Eric Clapton - I Shot The Sheriff
  • Dusty Springfield - Son Of A Preacher Man
  • J Geils Band - Centerfold
  • Smokey Robinson - Tears of a Clown
  • Moody Blues - I'm just A Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)
  • John Fogerty - Centerfield

I’ll be posting Part III (the final part of this theme) in another 2 weeks. Be sure to come back then for the finale.

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, Curious as a Cathy. , and Ramblin with AM. Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.  If you have a MUSIC* post, feel free to join in the fun! *sorry non-music posts are not permitted in this bloghop. 


  1. Mary,

    I enjoyed listening to your them song choices with occupation in the title. The group Thompson Twins doesn't ring a better. Their new-to-me song 'Doctor Doctor' peaked #18 in 1984. I do remember their song 'Hold Me Now' but that's only because I looked TT's top songs up and this is their only #1 hit I knew. 'I Shot the Sheriff' reminices of days as a girl from the summer before her 13th birthday. I love Smokey Robinson's smooth vocals! My niece met him a few years ago and said he was super nice. The Moody Blues is a group that I totally lost over the years in my mind. I'm so glad for the reintroduction in recent years. Thanks for great dance mewsic. Have a boogietastic week, my friend!

    1. Cathy, I had so much fun with this theme. I'm going to be a little bit sad when it wraps up after part 3. Going to keep my comment short - as I have about 200 emails to sort through. ugh Mondays!

  2. You always come up with the best lists. Thanks for sharing them. Very nice.

    1. Thanks Patrick! I'm glad that you enjoyed this. I like doing the setlists as they are challenging and fun. I've got some fun in store for the AtoZ challenge coming up. I hope to see you in my comments there :)

  3. This was a fun theme, wasn't it? Any list with the Moody Blues is a great list and I"m Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band" is one of the fun ones. The J. Geils song always made me laugh, for some reason. Oh, the shock! The shock! (I guess being a centerfold is an occupation!)
