MUSICAL MONDAY


What is moving you today? Let us know, throw a video up on your blog and go over to Musical Monday, hosted by Amanda at Bloggin With Amanda ,...and please don't forget to leave a comment and your link while there.

This week I picked MAD WORLD by Gary Jules.  With The Tuscon Killings and the subsequent  funerals, I found myself in deep sadness for all the victims.   After the smoke cleared and the partisan name calling calmed down, I feel we are left with two very serious problems, depression and mental Illness and gun control.
Alone, each is a big problem, all together they continue to be a lethal cocktail..

"Mad World" is a very haunting song with a definite message..





Then on a happier note I found this song, "Feeling Good" sung by Jennifer Hudson, cause this IS how I feel now!



While you're in a musical mood, please also visit

They're very sweet and they love music too!

  4. I have to admit I don't understand the gun culture in the States. I am glad we have much stricter gun control laws in Oz

  5. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SONG! This is a perfect pick for the mood in the States at the moment. The guns will never go away, but I pray that people will now understand the importance of health care and supporting those in dire need. It's also truly sad that it takes a tragedy for people to realize how to be civil and love one another.

    Jennifer Hudson is amazing, isn't she? Wow.

    Thanks for the Music Monday shout out. You rock, mama! xox

  6. Mad World, the view of people formation on the ground from above fascinates me. Jennifer's song is a powerful one.

  7. Awesome choices - like Run DMT said, that first one does reflect the mood of the States at the moment.

    And Jennifer Hudson is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. :) I was rooting for her on AI - I'm so glad she's gone on to be such a success, her voice is absolutely beautiful.

    MMMM: Trifecta

    Thanks for coming by.
    I didn't go with the theme this week.
    Felt like I wanted to express something different.
    Have a wonderful Monday.

  19. Oh, Peggy... I LOVE the song Mad World, and it is so perfect for the way everyone is feeling lately. Thanks for sharing it this week.
    The one by Jennifer Hudson was very upbeat but it's not really my style of music.
    I'm so glad you join us each week and look forward to your choices every Monday. Have a fantastic week.

  23. Great songs. The first I recognise as a 'Tears for Fears' song, by Roland Orzabal a group I enjoy. Loved the film clip that went with it.
    You have inspired a future Monday Music entry for me. :O)
