September Retro Country Rewind #MewsicMovesMe

It's been a couple years since we premiered our mewsic feature "Retro Country Rewind," a look back at favorite songs that hit #1 during that month from 30, 35, 40 plus years ago. This year we're delving into #1 hits from 1971, 1976, 1981, and so on. Let's take a look at September for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...


35 Years Ago - 1986, Desperado Love, Conway Twitty

It's a Conway double feature this month!


40 Years Ago - 1981, Tight Fittin' Jeans, Conway Twitty



50 Years Ago - 1971, Easy Lovin', Freddie Hart

Conway & Loretta's duet of this song will always be my favorite version, 
but the original is a country music classic...


55 Years Ago - 1966, Almost Persuaded, David Houston

Again, Conway's cover of this song beats all for me, 
but it's a beauty no matter who's singing it...


30 Years Ago - 1991, Leap of Faith, Lionel Cartwright

More contemporary than my usual picks, but a song I've always enjoyed...


We hope you enjoyed our choices this month!
Let us know if you have a favorite!

M&M,

There's nothing like having a taste of country each week on the 4M dance floor. I recognized the older classic tunes. Lionel Cartwright is not only new to me. I prefer the sound of contemporary country but I have a deep appreciation for the old style and the artist are top notch musicians. Thanks for joining the party, my friend. Have a boogietastic week!

It's interesting, as always, witnessing differences in musical styles and what listeners want, as the years pass. My personal favorite would have been the last selection. Hard to believe that 1991 is 30 years ago now! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
