Whoa Nellie!

Hey y'all! Snapping fingers at the ready? It's Music Week here at Wonders Never Cease!
I thought I'd post about new music that makes me happy, okey doke? I hope you'll tell me about your latest faves too. I LOVE discovering something new to listen to.

Have you met Nellie McKay? Her last name rhymes with pie, which is perfect given the name of her latest album. (See above.) I just found Nellie earlier this month when NPR did a feature on that album, but she's been around for a while. Her debut album, Get Away From Me, (a play on Norah Jones' Come Away with Me) came out in 2003, and I can't stop singing her songs.
Like this one.

Isn't that delightful? She's clearly having a blast with that song.
I've been singing it all weekend, and it's a good thing for Tanner the Slobber Dog that I have, given his latest shenanigans. Want to see?
I noticed something strange in the backyard and headed out the door. As you can see, he was in a hurry to show off his handiwork.

What's that? Sam's favorite bear and...another $3 container of red pepper hummus.

Naughty dog.

I better put on some Nellie McKay and get happy again. Have a few minutes? Poke around on YouTube a bit. You might fall in love with her too.

Have a great Monday, y'all!
Love, Becky

Hi Becky,

Now I have that song in my head.
Tanner is just doing his job, at least Tommy thinks he is.

Hope all is well in your world.

Many hugs,

Oh, you know me! I love music. I love my dog. Put the two together, and I'm happier than a pooch in a pantry! Can't wait to see what's on deck later this week. Ciao!

Oh,no Tanner - not the bear! What is in that hummus?

Cute song - very upbeat.

Our nickname for our schnoodle is Raven because he steals everything you have on the table, floor, bed,laundry basket, etc and then strohs it all around our yard too. The laundry items can be quite embarrassing laying out in my yard! Tammy Whitley

OMGosh! That is so cute! She does look like she is having a lot of fun with that song!
That Tanner is so funny!

Doris Day is like old time religion.

Wow! Impressive. I had not heard of her.

Hi Becky,
I love Doris Day and grew up watching her movies and singing along.
Oh my "Naughty dog" in deed. We had a dog who would "eat" our socks (crazy).
Enjoy your day,

Tanner LOVES hummus. I've never heard of anything quite like it.

Does he have other refined tastes? Is he into pink champagne and caviar too?

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

She is great, I agree.
Tanner's got great taste--hummus! My!

CC said...

Ugh. I'd be mad as heck if my dog ran off with those things! I'd need some happy music too.

I LOVE music week!!! I was just thinking about posting a couple songs on my blog that I have absolutely fallen in love with lately ... they make me happy.
