Ooooh la la la! With Laura V

Laura Venturini, the creator of lauravent69, has tagged me for her WEEKLY SONG CHALLENGE. Because this is a weekly challenge, I though I better hurry up with it and move one of my other scheduled posts to next week.


1. Post a video clip from a movie that involves dancing.

I have chosen this song because of the memories it brings back. We cared for some wonderful older ladies and gents in their nineties who still had work assignments (according to their abilities) but who lived within the care facility so that carers could check in on them and help make sure they had good food, their medication was not forgotten and to provide any personal assistance they needed.

We became like a very close family and the team of carers were a big part of the social and emotional health of the wonderful older volunteers we were helping (many of them had been full-time volunteers for 50, 60 or 70 years! – working full-time and not ever being paid a penny – we were incredibly proud of them.)

They loved watching musicals from the golden era of Hollywood. Often when a song started the cares and the residents we were caring for would jump up and start dancing together. This is one of the songs that we all loved having a dance to.

2. Post a video of a song that makes you think of medieval times.

I struggled with this one Laura. But I was sure there must be some medieval looking scenes in some of Enya’s videos. But the only ones I could find are not official Enya videos, they have been put together by people who know how to put one of these videos together.

3. Post a video of a song about sex.

There are plenty of songs are out there either overtly or metaphorically about sex. Some of them give me the creeps. So I am going to post a song that is very well known, and generally liked. But I am not going to explain any of the entendre. If you don’t know, you don’t want to know – keep it that way.


Thanks for the tag Laura V!

I am tagging to take up the WEEKLY SONG CHALLENGE:
