Music plays a huge part in my life. I love music. If I go for a couple of days without listening to any kind of music, I feel depression begin to creep over me. I am a lover of all types of music, from rock and roll to classical, bluegrass to rap. Music moves me. I have been schooling my children in some of the classics. We have a wonderful time driving down the road, blasting golden oldies on the ipod and singing along.
Here are Alyson, Daniel, Thomas, Will and Bob in the car getting ready to sing!
Some of their favorites are: Rockin’ Robin by Bobby Day; The Battle of New Orleans by Johnny Horton; Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations (they like this one even better when I sing it cornily to them); Great Balls of Fire by Jerry Lee Lewis; The Lion Sleeps Tonight by The Tokens; No Particular Place to Go by Chuck Berry; School Days by Chuck Berry; Sugar, Sugar by The Archies and Under the Boardwalk by The Drifters.
But the all time favorite of my crew would have to be Little Bitty Pretty One by Thurston Harris. It just makes my heart happy to hear all my little ones singing along with this.
Here is a link to the song on Youtube. If you’ve not heard it, check it out and imagine all my little voices singing along. 🙂
I’ve also been schooling them in music from the 80s and classic country but I’ll save those for another day.
What kind of music do you like? Any other favorites I should share with my crew?
