Happy Birthday Darlin' Dolly #MewsicMovesMe

The honorary co-host of this month's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is Marie, otherwise known as XmasDolly. In honor of her birthday, this week's prompt is a birthday song to her, followed by a song that starts with the first letter of your first name...


To this girl, there's only one birthday song. Conway's Happy Birthday Darlin' was #1 for 3 weeks back in 1979. I love it because not only does he sing the chorus, but he also speaks the verses in that dreamy voice of his. He could read the phone book to me and I would be in heaven...


Both Melissa and Mudpie begin with the same letter, so our choice for a song that begins with the letter "M" is My Elusive Dreams by Tammy Wynette and David Houston. It was Tammy's very first #1 record back in 1967. Songs like this make me ache to travel back in time to when country music tugged at the heartstrings like this...


Happy Birthday, Darlin' Dolly!

We hope you enjoyed the songs we picked out for you.

Melissa,

You know I don't think I've heard 'Happy Birthday Darlin'' before today, so thanks! ;) Your second song pick is also new2me. Excellent choices for Marie's birthday party. Thanks for boogieing with the 4M gang, dearie! Purs & kisses!

Somehow, I had never before heard Conway's song "Happy Birthday Darlin'". I've heard it now, though, thanks to you!

Oh yes, Marie will love these, for sure. These songs were both new to me, and Conway Twitty hit this one out of the....birthday cake. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
