Rock On

Because I am sick and tired of being sick and tired, I decided to make some more album covers. It was so much fun last time, plus it gave me a great excuse to look at all the cute pictures from when May Queen was a wee girl. So here are my proposals for new covers for albums in my collection:















(That's me on the far right... in the plaid apron. Alas, no dancing with a bottle on my head for me. The boys get to have all the fun. And no, the bottles are not attached. They are all balancing them in their hats. Apparently during the show I missed a bottle fell into the orchestra pit. Good thing they're plastic.)

These are so creative~ I love it!! I bet the Fiddler on the Roof would have been pretty entertaining to watch, it looks like fun. :)

Hee, hee.

I KNOW that is exactly the image Warrant wanted for their cover! :)

Hope you feel better soon.

I don't know the album "Time Between Trains," but that should be the cover. It's beautiful.

flutter said...

I loved Time Between Trains, girl. You did a fab job. Feel better soon, won't you?

I'm sick, too, today. I wish I'd been as constructive as you have! Great covers!

realitytesting said...

Oh! Fiddler on the Roof! I saw this so many times as a little girl...I love it. I must take my girls. You've reminded me.

Sweet little bird... Little Chavalah... Yes. I was a sweet freakin bird. Lemme tell YOU.

Do they have the bottles attached or are they really that good?

Sober Briquette said...

Yes, I was struck by the train photo, too. Great!

are you getting any scrapping done whilst you traipse down memory lane?

the dragonfly said...

These are SO MUCH FUN!! :) She's such an adorable little girl...

Just wondering...what's up for Monday Missions in February?

Great albums! I especially love the train shot, although I am a big fan of Manhattan Transfer.

They seriously don't glue the bottles on?? Wow.

Jennifer said...

Those are so much fun. That train photo is amazing!

Emily said...

Can I get these on Itunes?

:) Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for this!! We've been stuck inside today without a drop of power -- thanks for the laugh-- now that we're finally getting warm.

Beck said...

Those are a lot of fun!

MamaGeek said...

Warrant and Cherry Pie? Snort².

Ahh yes, an oldie but a goody.

Candygirlflies said...

That bottle dance is nothing short of a miracle... I never tire of seeing it performed.

Feel better!

I've lurked long enough. It seems you are a favorite among a lot of blogs I love so I finally had to comment. I love this post. The "covers" are awesome. And, I must say, I love your words (as an English teacher, I don't see a lot of "words" I like--high school students don't really like words . . . at least the ones I like).

niobe said...

These are the best! (and thanks for the inside info about the bottles)

Julie Pippert said...

Awesome!

Amy Y said...

How fun!
Feel better soon, Mama.

Chrissy said...

I love that first photo.

Mad Hatter said...

In the production I saw in Sleepy Town a few years ago, the bottles were attached and it was soooo painfully obvious. One of the most embarrassing theatre moments I've experienced actually.

Love the little angel.

Furrow said...

I'm not completely caught up, but I'm sorry that you've been sick. Feeling any better? The album covers are tres cute.

Angela said...

Feel better! Maybe I should take up making album covers. Looks like fun!

HEE!

One production of FOTR, we didn't have talented enough men, so they used women for the bottle dance.

They were tiny, but it worked well enough.
