Monday's Music Moves Me/ Musical Mondays

 Lorie at The Shrewbridges of Celebration, FL told me about Monday's Music Moves Me, so here's another cool music blog meme to do

Amanda at Bloggin’ with Amanda hosts Musical Monday – What Move’s You?. You can get the instructions by clicking here.

This week's theme is music from our favorite groups.  When I was a tween and young teen,  I loved, loved, loved The Cowsills!  I remember seeing them on Ed Sullivan.  If you remember, they are the basis for the show,The Partridge Family!!  My friend, Maggie used to hang with them at the beach because they stayed at the same motel as her family when they would performing Atlantic City!  I was so very jealous of Maggie!

I was madly in love with Barry Cowsill!  He was soooo cute!!  See for yourself!

Even as an adult, Barry Cowsill was still easy on the eyes!

In researching all this, I learned that Barry Cowsill has passed on.  Apparently he drowned during Hurricane Katrina.  I remember now, reading that he was missing and feared dead.  I didn't know his body was found not long after the hurricane.  So very sad.

So, in memory of my first bout of unrequited love, I give you The Cowsills, singing The Rain, The Park and Other Things.

I'm not familiar with them/him - but I enjoyed listening! How sad about him losing his life during Katrina.

How very sad that Barry Cowsill fell victim to Katrina! That's awful! What a shame!

Happy MMMM!!
