Aww…some Monday’s Music Moves Me

Aww…some Monday

Recently I opened the local high school app to see if there were any sports going on that I could photograph. As we near the end of school, these opportunities are getting scarce. The composite schedule showed that the girls Lacrosse team was playing in a tournament at home. I’ve never been to a Lacrosse match but that won’t stop me from grabbing the camera and heading to the local venue. I still don’t any of the rules of the game but it is apparent that the match is basically hockey on grass. Here are a few images of the home team (in white jerseys) earning a 26-3 victory.

Monday’s Music Moves Me

Our guest host for the month of May is Mr. John Holton from The Sound of One Hand Typing. Today he has challenged us to build a playlist of 1980’s movie music. I thought that might be a real challenge until a little research turned up a gold mine of music.

Linda Ronstadt has always been my favorite female vocalist and surely she has a movie song to her credit. Sure enough Linda and James Ingram teamed up to produce a beautiful ballad from “An American Tail”.

While I am sure this song will appear on more that one playlist today I cannot let an 80’s movie music tribute go by with out the best Navy recruiting video of all time. You are about to enter the “Danger Zone”

It seems that quite a few of the 80’s “Hair Bands” contributed to movie soundtracks. Journey contributed their biggest hit to the movie “Heavy Metal”. Some have called “Open Arms” the greatest ballad of all time. What do you think?

Some movie songs take on a life of their own outside the music industry. This next, and final entry has become our local high school’s fight song. The Bentonville, Arkansas Tigers adopted “Eye of the Tiger’. Have a blessed week.

  1. Nice photo op of the Lacrosse teams!

    Top Gun was a good movie but the soundtrack was excellent. We own it on CD and played it quite a bit back in the day. The 80s and 90s produced some fabulous entertainment. Excellent musical line up for this week, my friend. Have a boogietastic week and pass on my belated Mother’s Day wishes to the Mrs, my friend.

  3. A great song by Linda Ronstadt. Such great range she has in genre’s, from belting out rock hits, to country, to pop and everything in between.
    Top Gun, Journey and Eye of the Tiger, three great dramatic songs. The Top Gun song is my favorite.

    Lacrosse is huge where I live, although my son did not play it at his high school, so I have no idea what the rules are. As you are probably aware, it originated with various Eastern Native American tribes and could be deadly in its original forms. I enjoyed your musical selections, especially “Danger Zone” and “Eye of the Tiger”.
