I love music. Like, seriously. I have to have music playing most (if not all) of the time. It’s so good for the soul, sometimes, to just pick a track that really speaks to me and blare that shit as loud as I can (depending on various environmental factors). My car has a wild assortment of mix CDs that I have created while listening to countless other tracks that ultimately didn’t make the cut. Music can make or break a mood; it can help provide a little more energy on a listless day or it can help one to relax at the end of a crazy night.
Naturally, Midget and Munchkin are developing their own musical preferences based on the things that I play. We can’t take a car ride without one or both of them making various musical requests, always beginning with what the girls fondly refer to as, “The Telephone Song.” Hearing Midget singing along with Lady Gaga is pretty awesome. Even more awesome is when she sings Liar along with Henry Rollins. I have been trying – FOREVER – to capture audio of this little slice of awesome to no avail.
Some more songs that the girls request on a regular basis:
