For today, my list will be a little longer than it normally will be, only because I have been collecting songs to post here for a few weeks now.
(there won't be any artists listed usually because so many people sing these songs)Apples and Bananas--My dad used to sing this song to my brother and I growing up. It tickles my heart when Lucy starts singing it, because really, you don't know what your parents put into parenting until you are a parent yourself. And it's sad it takes that long to really appreciate your upbringing, but here we are, I am almost 30 with my daughter singing songs that my dad sang to me. ::love::
Say Hey (I Love You)--This song is from the soundtrack of Ramona and Beezus which Lucy LOVES! I am pretty sure when it was OnDemand on cable we watched it three times in one day. I am not proud of this, however I am sure I was just really busy [playing on the computer] that day and she needed to be entertained. It happens.
Drivin' in My Car--Even I love this song. Lucy and I will sing it whether it's playing or not. And we have a lot of fun with it.
The Lion Sleeps Tonight--She loves this song...not sure why, because we don't watch a lot of Lion King around here, but she loves it, so I go with it.
Itsy Bitsy Sider - O.A.R--The only reason I am listing this song is because it's done by O.A.R. I love them. And I love that a grown up band took the time out to sing kids songs. Plus they make this one not so boring, which is always a plus.
My songsPink - Fuckin' Perfect--yes there is a swear word in this title, ::gasp:: but whatever! We are all adults, we can learn to deal. And quite frankly, Pink is awesome so who cares. There is a radio safe version of this song, but when I am alone in my car, I sometimes want to yell out words I can't with little ears around.
Bruno Mars - Marry You--Really anything by Bruno Mars will do for me. I really like the sound of his voice.
Florence + The Machine - Dog Days Are Over--I didn't get this song when I first listened to it. I didn't even like it, but the second time it came on, I started to tap my foot, the third time, I turned the volume up a bit, and now, it's on my favorite's list.
Lesley Roy - Dead But Breathing--I am a huge fan of chick music. I swoon over a a strong raspy women belting out lyrics. And this chick, she as just that. If you are looking for a Christmas present for me, a GC to iTunes for her album would be just the ticket :)
The Script - The Man Who Can't Be Moved--I go back and forth if I like this song. Today I like it, tomorrow it might grate on my nerves, but either way, I am all for some emo music here and there.
