Music Monday - "Betty Davis Eyes"

Well, last night was a bust. I managed to sleep for a good 30 seconds this morning, and luckily I fell asleep right as my 2year old started babbling her morning routine of baby talk, disgust at her full diaper, demands for "Tup, tup tup" (cup) & she gets louder & louder until someone takes her baby gate off. (A necessity since she fell out of her crib and  hat was the end of the crib, now she's in a daybed, & wanders around the house of her own free will, which made me nervous)
I appreciate all the kind advice though, a friend & I were discussing the blogging world, & she mentioned how nice it was when other Moms commented with helpful advice, she said it was "nice to know someone cared". I feel like that exactly. So *loves* to all of you, really.
Also - before I get to the meaning of the blog title name, I'm doing a giveaway starting tomorrow for a "Krishala Burchill" original piece, & I'm very excited! I can't paint to save my life, but this switzerland native has an amazing collection!
Ok, so those of you who are wondering what "Music Monday" is, I was scrolling through the blogs I read, and as there's so many, I do some on this day, others on that, well at 'Super Mommy to the Rescues' she had a Taylor Swift music video up & as I am almost obsessed with music, I quickly took note.
It started (I think it started here) with Lady Java's Lounge & all you do is link a music video of whatever you feel like.
Add that to your McLinky etc. etc. and voila! I love music, so this was a good fit for me.
So without further ado ...

I picked this for 2 reasons. Gwenyth Paltrow sings this beautifully - Kim Carnes (the original singer) has such a unique voice, but Gwenyth pulls it off nicely. The second reason is I canNOT get this bloody song out of my head!

My signature isn't finished yet so -
*frills & pretty things* Thanks! Joe, xxx *frills & pretty things*

What a great song...haven't heard it in forever! I love Gwyneth Paltrow.

Thanks for coming to check out my blog. Yes, I do have 2. I made my second one just for contest entries but now that people are reading it I feel the need to put up new giveaways on it most days.

I like that song too. That was from a movie where she (Gwyneth Paltrow) sang Karaoke with her father. That was actually a pretty funny movie. I can't remember the name. But I know Huey Lewis was in it too.

Thanks for following my blog & I'll follow yours now too. Have a great night. :)

I liked this clip. Is it from a movie? Which one? Also, I had to chuckle at the top part of your post. I remember when my daughter started climbing out of her crib. She's two years younger than my middle son, but she taught him how to climb over the baby gates too. I swear she'll get to high school two years after him and teach him how to skip school and smoke in the boy's bathroom too.
