We all need a little music in our lives. A good song can answer a question, soothe the soul and provide an escape. It can recall a memory in the most vivid detail and evoke the most intense feelings.
“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” -Sarah Dessen
We created Tunesday Tuesday to do just that, bring people together through music.
Every Monday night at 9pm the link up will go live at The Patchwork Paisley, Drinking the Whole Bottle, Momma Candy, and MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter. We will designate a theme, and hope that you will share a song that embodies said theme for you. Post the video for the song, an audio clip, the lyrics- however you want to do it. Then, write a little something about why this song captures the week's theme and link up your post here with us!
Visit your hosts after 9pm (EST) on Monday nights
to find out what the theme is for the week!
It would be awesome if you would follow your lovely hostesses (links below,) but other than that- let's have fun with this! Know a fellow music lover who should get in on the party? Let them know about it! Want to share your groove with the world? Tweet it should you feel so inclined. Want to grab a button? Go for it. It's really pretty and you'll find it down below.

I'm not sure what I was thinking when I decided I could choose one song every week to fit a specific theme. I enjoy the challenge, but one??? JUST one?? I've broken the rules before. I'm a rebel, baby. That's me.
Alas, I have found the song for me, so this week I'll stick to the rules (there aren't any real Tunesday "rules,") but I tend to get excessive. I'm all, give me an inch and I'll take a mile and before you know it, I've created my own motivational playlist.
So anyhow, I tend to get so stressed about finding the perfect song, but the one I chose this week is one I love for many different reasons. For one, I have a huge appreciation for nineties alternative. I was a teen in the 90s and some of my best memories were made to the melodious sounds of Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder. This song is on every playlist I make and as far as a motivator- it is definitely one that will always make me reach for my gym shoes and get moving. Just kidding. It's been far too long since I've made use of my gym membership, sadly. What better time to start than a new year though, right? Maybe I'll wait until the mad rush has subsided ;)
If you click below to listen, make sure you turn it up. This song is a must-play-loud. I can't hear it without nodding my head along at the very least- I might even getting close to performing some air guitar if the mood strikes.
