Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!

Operator – Jim Croce

Do you remember the first time you heard a song or an artist who would stay with you for life? Someone who’s stories would live on long after they were gone?

This week we’re going back in time to visit the late, great Jim Croce, one of the greatest storytellers of our time.

We’re doing something new this week too. We’re featuring a “reaction” video from JayVeeTV – a guy who listens to classic songs for the first time and records his initial responses to the music live. It’s fun hearing his perspective on the music – let us know what you think!

Inspire Me Monday #482 – April 11, 2021

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    That skillet pancake looks delicious and I love that art deco card.

  4. Timmy Tomcat says:

    Nice post and fun recipe. I had pancakes this weekend love them

  5. Alana says:

    Jim Croce was just 30 when he died in a plane crash, and that was a huge loss to the music world. He had a way of writing about the most ordinary things. I’m one of the last generations to have used pay phones regularly and these lyrics are just so….well, they bring me back. So seeing the young person in the reaction video smile in listening to this song made me happy today, knowing that it spans the ages.

  6. I really appreciate you taking the time to host this charming party!! Thank you!!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
