Just a quick post for Music Monday this week. I’m missing the blog and everyone this holiday season. It’ll be a miracle if I finish the retelling challenge on time. Anyway, hope you’re all doing well, and I can’t wait to catch up. ❤️
Hi everyone! I’m late announcing that I’m taking a break after my absence over the last few weeks. I’m sorry about that, but I’ve been busy and haven’t really had much time to read. Plus, this happened….
I discovered Flower Friday while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and decided to begin sharing some flower pictures from our gardens along with some information about them. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!
Last time I shared: Coral Knock Out Rose
I’ll be creating a Flower Friday page where all previous Flower Friday shares will be available by links.
Native to the U.S., garden phlox is a flowering plant that can be found just about anywhere; in fact, I came across this beautiful flower while driving my car down the road just a few days ago. It’s hard to miss their vivid colors.
It’s nice to have something upbeat to start the week! This song just makes me want to dance. It’s said to be their comeback song of 1975. This was before I was born, but I imagine people just went crazy over it with the developing disco trend.
The rhythm for this song was actually inspired by the chunka-chunka-chunka sound of a car rolling over a bridge crossing Biscayne Bay near Miami. I read this morning that the Bee Gees went over this bridge on their way to Criteria Studios, where they were recording the Main Course album. Robin Gibb told The Mail On Sunday November 1, 2009: “We’d already thought up the title for this song, but it wasn’t until Barry, Maurice and I drove from Biscayne Bay to Miami that we realized what the tune was going to be. We had the idea as we passed over a bridge. Some tar noises made a rhythmic sound on the wheels of our car, which created the feel to the type of song we wanted to write. We finished the song at the Criteria Studios that day.”
