We all know the song.  We all know the video.

This is currently M’s favorite song.  She LOVES this song.  Whenever it comes on the radio, she has to stop what she’s doing to sing it.

Even if she’s just about to fall asleep, if she hears the song, she will sing it, eyes closed so that she can fall asleep right after the song is done.  If she’s at the tail end of a nap and just barely waking up and she hears the song, she will sing it.

At home, will will project the video via Chromecast and she will wear her pink little dance tutu outfit.  She will sing and dance along with Taylor.  She just LOVES this song!

I have to admit, it’s pretty catchy.  I’m not a fan of ALL of Taylor Swift’s music, but this one I can get behind.  It’s got a fun loving tone to it.

It’s so cute listening to M sing the chorus.  She’s even got the little rap part down!

Last week, Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys and Jordan Knight of New Kids On The Block made the announcement that they created a musical duo together, will be releasing an album, AND will be going on tour!

Nick and Jordan are my favorite members of the two boy bands that basically defined my childhood. 

Til this day, I still squeal with delight every time I hear news about them, or catch them on TV.

They’ve been such a part of my life for so at least twenty one years!  Amazing!

It made me wonder about M.  What kind of music will she like?  What sort of celebrity will she have a crush on?  What pop culture phenomenon will define her childhood and adolescence?  What will make her giddy and squeal way into her adult years?

Motherhood.. it really makes you think sometimes..

When M was younger, we used to listen to child-appropriate music in the car.  This meant that we would listen to CDs full of nursery rhymes and kid songs. 

The music eventually transitioned into the Sofia The First soundtrack, and now it’s all about the Frozen soundtrack.

The music gets to be way too repetitive as we have to listen to the CDs over and over and over and over again.  While it’s super cute to hear M sing along, we do get very tired of the songs. 

So, we listen to the radio.

She used to never really sing to the songs on the radio, so we never really realized she knew what she was listening to..

We were wrong.

Here are a list of songs that we had no idea M knew enough to sing along to:

The Monster – Eminem feat. Rhianna
Roar – Katy Perry
Talk Dirty – Jason Derulo
I Don’t Care – IconoPop
Turn Down For What – Lil Jon

There are probably many more that I can’t think of the moment and many more that she will surprise us with singing along. 

How did we find out that she knew some of these songs?

Hubby and I have a habit of absent-mindedly singing some of these songs at home while doing some things.  Suddenly, M would finish the line to the song.  This was especially true with “Talk Dirty.”  I would hum the little musical part right before he sings, “Talk dirty to me..”  I was humming it while I was working on cards at my craft table and M was playing in the room with me.  Suddenly, M says, “Talk dirty to me..”

That was surprising and so funny.  We had her do it over and over again.

What sort of pop songs do your kids surprise you with knowing??

Running out of things to blog about this week. 

Not really, just kind of lazy to really think of something meaningful and deep to blog about.  Maybe I’m mourning the loss of the station wagon.. it’s preventing my creative juices from flowing..

Or maybe I’m just making excuses..

Either way, I was listening to my iPod the other day when I was at work by myself on a Saturday morning.  N’Sync came on.  Yes, I have N’Sync songs.. Backstreet Boys songs.. and all those other ’90s teeny-bopper songs..

Don’t hate.  You’re making me lose my train of thought.

Anyway.. I was the song that came up was “Something Like You..”

Such a sweet, sweet song.. that I thought I’d post the lyrics up today..

So many times I thought I held it in my hands
but just like grains of sand
love slipped through my fingers
so many nights I asked the Lord above
Please make me lucky enough to find a love that lingers
Something keeps telling me that you could be my answered prayer
you must be heaven sent, I swear
cuz…

Something happens when you look at me I forget to speak
something happens when you kiss my mouth my knees get so weak
could it be true is this what God has meant for me?
cuz baby I can’t believe…that something like you could happen to me

yeah yeah…something like you

Girl in your eyes I feel your fire burn
oh your secrets I will learn
even if it takes forever
with you by my side i can do anything
I don’t care what tomorrow brings as long as we’re together
my heart is telling me that you could be my meant to be
I know it more each time we touch
cuz…

Something happens when you look at me I forget to speak
something happens when you kiss my mouth my knees get so weak
could it be true is this what God has meant for me?
cuz baby I can’t believe…that something like you could happen to me

Something magical (something magical)
something spiritual (something spiritual)
something stronger than the two of us alone
something physical
something undeniable (undeniable)
nothing like anything (anything) that i’ve ever known
cuz…

Something happens when you look at me I forget to speak
something happens when you kiss my mouth my knees get so weak
could it be true is this what God has meant for me?
cuz baby I can’t believe…that something like you could happen to me

Something happened…ohhhh, can’t believe that you happened to me
hey yeah…

They just don’t make songs as cheesy as this anymore.. and it’s a darn shame.  These are the songs that make me believe in love again.. that make me believe that romance still exists in some boys.

Ok.. so I’m a little cheesy.. but that’s who I am!

I want this kind of romance.. this kind of feeling from someone..

Is it too much to ask for of the  self-proclaimed “realist?”
