#4M : April Showers Bring May Flowers



Welcome back to Monday’s Music Moves Me!

A new month. A new Musical Conductor! Congrats to Kim from The ReInVintaged Life !
As musical conductor, Kim gets to choose our themes for this month.


Kim says this about today’s theme: “‘April showers bring May flowers’ (songs about spring, rain, flowers, or even actual showers where you get clean.  Do your thang with it!)”

Alrighty, Kim! You know I like to put my own ‘spin’ on things.. So here goes…

By the way... have you ever noticed it doesn't specify if those showers are rain or snow?  I'm writing this post on Friday, March 29 and we have yet another SNOW advisory for this afternoon/evening here in SE Idaho.  Sure glad I don't have to be anywhere! 

Three Dog Night - Pieces of April




Al Jolson - April Showers




Electric Light Orchestra - Don't Bring Me Down




Rod Stewart - Maggie May




Neil Diamond & Barbra Streisand You Don't Bring Me Flowers

  1. Hey Girlfriend, How ya doin? Why does it seem like it's been forever since I've talked to you. Aughhhh I must be losing it or I'm pooped. I think the latter. hahaha Anyway, check it out we have one the same... ahhhh Al Jolsen was a corker, hahahaha! Anyway, why didn't I think of those. I was goin' bonkers there for a while comin' up with a total blank, but the ol' hubby helped! hahaha Now out of the ones you chose I must say 3 dog night tune I don't even remember! SHEESH! 3 DOG NIGHT That for sure sounds like "BRUCE" giggle... Maggie Mae has to be my favorite out of all of them & I forgot what he looked like as a brunette.. hehehe! This tune is a bit long don't you think? It's still cool though & as far as babs OMG they really played that song out, but I don't think I ever saw this live version. Very cool. Thanks for sharing that one! Okay let me go see your A to Z I'm playing too, but I separated mine too! See you over there... hehehe

  4. I hadn't heard Maggie May in years but they played it yesterday during the 3 hour rain relay before the Yankee game got started. Thanks for the music.

    1. Hi Cathy!

      Many of these I hadn't heard in a long time, either. The Yankees game sounds like a great time.

  6. OMGosh, I loved this post! Three Dog Night and ELO were my favorites. ELO is one of my favorite bands, like EVER, and I had never heard this version of "Don't Bring Me Down." It's so awesome! Thanks for playing along with my theme!

    1. This was a GREAT theme, Kim!

      ELO and Supertramp are right up there with my favorites as well. And Three Dog Night? some great memories from the early 70's. Now to work out the songs for your next theme :)

  7. I knew all but the Three Dog Night song, and both me and my husband (a big Three Dog Night fan) are looking at each other saying "this is new to us!" About halfway through the song it did start to sound familiar to me. Don't Bring Me Down would be my fav, followed by Maggie May. Great set!
