May Retro Country Rewind #MewsicMovesMe

It's been a few 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. In this new year we'll be delving into #1 hits from 1972, 1977, 1982, and so on. Let's take a look at May for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...

Yes, this is the Floyd Cramer piano classic with lyrics written by Conway...


45 Years Ago - 1977, Play Guitar Play, Conway Twitty


40 Years Ago - 1982, Always On My Mind, Willie Nelson


35 Years Ago - 1987, The Moon Is Still Over Her Shoulder, Michael Johnson

M&M,

I enjoyed your Country Retro Rewind selection. I don't believe I remember Michael Johnson. He has a nice quality to his voice. I may check out more of his music. I don't recall the Oak Ridge Boys song, "It Takes a Little Rain". I really like it a lot, though. I've always liked them. Thanks for joining the party and hitting the dance floor with the 4M gang this week, my furriends. Have a boogietastic week! ;)

Willie's always a good bet. He turned 90 recently, can you imagine?

Your fun concerts always bring back so many memories, Mudpie and Melissa. This is the kind of music my parents and grandparents used to play when I was a kid. Thank you for bringing back some fun memories! Purrs!

Few can beat Willie Nelson, but Conway came close with his first selection. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
