#4M: (Musical) Root Beer Floats for Everyone!

Welcome back for Monday’s Music Moves Me (aka #4M)

We’re under the direction of our co-host/conductor for this month - John Holton!
Today’s theme is in honor of the late Charles E Hires birthday. (1851 - 1937). Mr Hires was the first commercial brewer of Root Beer. John has requested that we build our playlists today using the first letters of songs to spell ‘Root Beer’. 

Pull your frosted mugs out of the freezer, and pour yourself a nice tall glass of Root Beer while you enjoy today’s songs.  I like my Root Beer with ice cream, so I’ve taken the liberty of extending my playlist from Root Beer to Root Beer Float. 

RhythmNation - Janet Jackson
Oh Sherrie - Steve Perry
One Toke Over The Line - Brewer & Shipley
Tainted Love - Soft Cell

Baby Come Back - Player
Electric Avenue - Eddy Grant
Everybody Plays The Fool - The Main Ingredient
Rock Me Gently - Andy Kim

Forever Young - Rod Stewart
Lola - The Kinks
One Love - Bob Marley & The Wailers
Angie - The Rolling Stones
That’s The Way (I Like It) - KC & The Sunshine Band

  1. Great playlist. Liked all of your songs. Very nice.

    1. Thanks, Patrick!

      I had fun putting it together :)

  2. You have some great songs here, and I like how you extended the list to add "float"! Mr. Hires is boogieing on his birthday!

    1. In my opinion, it's really the only way to enjoy the beverage :) This was a great theme, John.

  3. Man you put my efforts to shame.Loved every one of these!!

  4. Mary,

    Oh girl, you out did me! I love how you stepped things up by making an ordinary glass of rootbeer into something fun a float! Excellent playlist with some outstanding mewsic selections for this week's theme.

    I've been out all day and am just now beginning to make rounds on the dance floor, so I made sure to hop over to your place first. Saying prayers for you and your family in the loss of your SIL. Be safe in your travels, my friend!
