seriously, if i don't stop singing "fergalicious" i'm going to go out of my mind!!!! 3 days now! 3 solid days. occassionally, i'll throw in a verse ofr2 of "irreplaceable" which quite honestly is no better. you see, i'm a closet "pop" fan. it's true. my first musical love will always be my 90's flannel lovin' grunge bands but really, how can you not totally jam to justin timberlake or black eyed peas. i really rip mark for loving his 80's musci (jana too!) to me it's so cheesy and lacks true lyrical integrity....but i really don't have a leg to stand on when i'm be-boppin' around the house singing T to the A to the S-T-E-Y girl you tastey! ridiculous. and i'm ridiculous for even publically admitting to this!
so speaking of great music.....maile posted a great post with a playlist that she made for her kids. i have a playlist for brooklyn and hudson as well. they are quite vocal when it comes to what they want to listen to in the van and there's only so much kids bop, disney radio, kids mix etc. that one mom can take. and i grew up listening to my mom's music. most of my childhood memories that i look back on and treasure almost always involve music and i credit my passion and love for it to my mother and grannie. they were both music lovers.....lovers of all sorts of music. growing up i listened to everything from the eagles, little river band, james taylor, phil collins, ray charles, patsy cline, johnny cash, etta james, nat king cole, louis armstrong etc. i honestly don't have any problems letting my kids listen to "grown up" music. of course, i do my best to download the clean versions of songs!
anyway i loved reading maile's playlist and we have alot of the same songs on ours...but then reading hers i realized how many other great songs i now need to buy! itunes here i come! here are some of our favorites that are in heavy rotation.....
