Manic Monday Mania!!!

Pin It
It is that most dreaded day of the week! Monday again folks. We are coming off of a good weekend! My 22 year old son got married on Saturday to my beautiful new daughter! You can see their picture here.  It was a beautiful ceremony and they make such a great couple. 

Sunday my friend Kim come by to get her bed and dresser that she  had stored in my spare bedroom. I was so happy about this. I have plans for the spare bedroom and for my attic room. I started cleaning out the attic room and trying to organize the storage closet up there. Of course we had to watch the Superbowl! Congrats to the Ravens! I think the best commercial during the Superbowl was the Taco Bell commercial featuring all of the older people. It was quite hilarious! 

Now, on to the music video of the day.  Keith works the night shift at his job and that leaves me and the kids here all by ourselves during the evening. The kids and I are actually on the same schedule. We stay up very late and sleep most of the morning away.  I always tell family and friends that we are on the Nightshift and that we don't wake up until at least noon and that I will have my phone set to silent until we wake up.  To get to the song of the day on Manic Monday Mania! I thought that the song  "The Night Shift" by the Commodores was perfect for today. (After all we are starting the night shift again tonight!) 

The Commodores wrote the song "Night Shift" in 1985 as a tribute to Jackie Wilson & Marvin Gaye. Wilson & Gaye were two famous R&B singers who died the previous year in 1984. It was their first and biggest hit obtained after Lionel Richie left the group.  Here is a link to the video and the words will follow! Enjoy your own kind of "Manic Monday Mania" !

Nightshift - The Commodores
Marvin, he was a friend of mine
And he could sing a song, his heart in every line
Marvin, sang of the joy and pain
He opened up our minds, and I still can hear him say

Aw talk to me so you can see what's going on
Say you will sing your songs forevermore (evermore)

Gonna be some sweet sounds coming down on the nightshift
I bet you're singing proud, oh I bet you'll pull a crowd
Gonna be a long night, it's gonna be all right on the nightshift
Oh you found another home, I know you're not alone on the nightshift

Jackie (Jackie), hey whatcha doing now
It seems like yesterday when we were working out
Jackie (Jackie, oh) you set the world on fire
You came and gifted us, your love it lifted us higher and higher

Keep it up and we'll be there at your side
Oh say you will sing your songs forevermore (evermore)

Gonna miss your sweet voice that soulful voice on the nightshift
We all remember you, oh the songs are coming through
At the end of a long day it's gonna be okay on the nightshift
You found another home, I know you're not alone on the nightshift
