Music Monday: What is This…Velvet?

Happy Monday, Swagvillians!  Hope your weekend was stellar.  In today’s Music Monday, I’d like to give a shout out to our Canadian members!

On this day in music, 24 years ago, Canadian singer Alannah Myles started a two week run at No. 1 on the US charts with her song ‘Black Velvet.”  I can remember listening to this song with my dad, while we drove around town. And there’s also a good chance I’ve sung this song at a karaoke bar before.

If you’re unfamiliar with the tune, check it out below!

Music Monday Trivia Question:  Who was this song written about and where was this person born?

Congrats to YouDontKnowNan, ioretrofantasy and gkndfn for correctly answering Elvis Presley, who was born in Tupelo, Mississippi!

Music Monday Discussion Question:  What is your favorite song to sing for karaoke and why?

Thanks everyone for your comments!  Maybe one day we’ll all get together for a big Swagbucks Karaoke Jam Throw Down!  Check your ledger to see if you were a winner of 25 SBs!
