Living life in the carpool lane..

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??

Long title..  but these are the things that I realized about myself in these past few weeks.

It’s amazing what one learns about themselves during their daily commute from work.

1.  I still remember every word of every song from the first High School Musical.  AND it’s made me look up the entire soundtrack of High School Musical 2 to find that cool “ballad” sung by Troy and Gabriella.  I may or may not have been belting out “Go My Own Way” on my own while working on craft projects.

2.  I still LOVE Blink 182’s Dude Ranch CD.  Still.  LOVE.

3.  I still know enough words to Kris Kross’ “Jump” to make me sound somewhat legit.  Don’t ask me to do it on the fly.. but I can so keep up when singing along to the song.  THAT was very surprising.

4.  The Backstreet Boys STILL got it going on.. especially since Kevin Richardson came back..

That’s all I can think of right now.

I think that’s a good assessment of what I usually think about while I’m driving.

I think it also shows what kind of music keeps me going during those commutes.  It keeps my drive interesting.

What goes on in your mind during your commutes to and from work?!
