Whee! We’re back, and ready to make a splash!

Hello! Kim here. You may or may not remember me, so I’ll be sure to get a bio up soon. In the meantime, I’ve come to deliver some summertime/water/splish-splash-themed amazingness via the Monday’s Music Moves Me theme at Dolly’s! When this site fell dormant a while back, I came across several Music Monday bloghops, and love participating on my other blog. Now that the Mamas are back and ready to roll, I’m bringing them into the fold as well!

I’ll get the ball rolling with my own selection, a track from The Cult’s The Best of Rare Cult, originally from Eastern European releases of Sonic Temple, “The River.” I haven’t been river-bound lately, so I definitely miss it.

It looks like Ri‘s going to join me at the river, with The Talking Heads’ “Take Me to the River.”

Tiffani celebrates all things and places summery and fun and chose DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s “Summertime.”

California has it all: beaches and lakes for plenty of sunning and water sports, amusement parks, and….well, everything you can think of. Southern California especially is synonymous with summer, and CC is adding Tupac & Dr. Dre’s “California Love” to our mix so all the rap fans will have something to listen to :)

Melisa‘s just ready for a vacation (author’s note: What? BlogHer didn’t count?) – The Go-Go’s’ “Vacation.”

And lastly, we just need to give Mari some cool water. Thankfully, she didn’t shoot a man on the Mexican border – we’ll leave that to Eddie Money’s “Gimme Some Water.”

There ya have it! Lots of us are just ready for our summertime vacations, whether they’re in California or at the river.

    The Talking Heads Take me to the River has been cloned by Hubby’s band with this song. They sing it the same way! Love their version. Your 1st song is new to me & luvin’ the ol’ Fresh Prince of Belair haven’t heard that one in years. All the rest surely rock! So welcome back & thanks for rockin’ out with us! Hope to see you next week too! Have a rockin’ week!

    I have to give full marks to Talking Heads from all the above videos. Quite a variety there.
