Mewsic Moves Me Monday - Bands Beginning With A

Happy Monday!

Today's Mewsic Monday doesn't have a theme and you can post what you want but we have decided to go with an alphabet theme for our own choices.

Today for us it's the letter A. Mum has picked these fab tunes from her past (mostly from her youthful 80s days).

ABBA -The Eagle

From 1978. This is one of Mum's fave ABBA songs and she was a big fan in the 70s and early 80s.

ADAM AND THE ANTS - Kings of the Wild Frontier

From 1980, the time of the British New Romantic movement. Mum says it was great to be a teenager then because music was so exciting and fresh. She was too young to go the New Romantic clubs though.


From 1982. More strange hair and outfits, but Mum says it was fun!


A-HA - The Sun Always Shines on TV

From 1986. Like ABBA, A-HA are a band from Scandinavia, but from Norway, not Sweden.

ABC - The Look of Love

1982. This British band were very popular during the early 80s.


THE ANIMALS - House of the Rising Sun

This is from 1964. before Mum was born but she says it's a classic.


AUDIOSLAVE - Original Fire

Audioslave consisted of Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) and Rage Against The Machine members
Tom Morello (lead guitar), Tim Commerford (bass/backing vocals), and Brad Wilk (drums). 

AURI - The Space Between

More recent times now (2017)  This is the side project of Nightwish keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen, his wife Johanna Kurkela and Nightwish guitarist and pipe player Troy Donockley.



Such a moving song. Reminds Mum so much of the 90s. Not good times she says - struggling even that far back with her mental health - but the music was amazing and so deep and raw.

The Animals' song is an old favourite. ♥ Flock of Seagulls was the only other one I recognized. Cool about the dual theme, alphabet and animals. ☺ Happy Monday!

A great choice of records!
Now I am giving my age away. I was 12 in the summer that House of the Rising Sun came out and my friend and I loved it so much! We would catch the small Cremyll Ferry over to Kingsand and go in the café where they had it on the jukebox and play it repeatedly before walking to Cawsand beach.It was so much safer back then for kids to be out alone, and my friend and I had wonderful times together. Sadly she passed from cancer last May.

I always look forward to your Nightwish song introduction and am equally thrilled to learn about some of the band members side gig. It's interesting I have not heard this Abba song 'Eagles' before now, so thanks for that share. I loved them back in the day! It's a shame they broke up. Have a boogietastic week, darlin' furriends!

Those were really good ones sweet Athena! The first A band that popped into the Dad's head was Atomic Rooster!

Nice playlist

Catch My Words said...

Nice selections. I found I'm either familiar with the group but not the particular song or familiar with the song but not the group. Very few picks were 100% new to me.

These bands are all new-to-me but ABBA!
