Kids Music

We’re in the midst of selling/buying houses so my post this week is light! Sorry.

One thing I’ve always loved is that my kids don’t force us to listen to children’s music. They like all kinds of music on the radio and I’m happy to oblige. One tends to lean toward alternative music like Foo Fighters and Coldplay while the other is more of a pop fan loving Pumped Up Kicks or anything by Katy Perry. Right now their current favorite is Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye (or Go Diego as they call him…can you also guess which TV show they’re obsessed with).

What songs do your kids love?

  1. Sarah, my boys have been known to sing along to Ke$ha too. I’ll be sad once they start to understand lyrics and I have to be more careful about what we’re listening too. Guess we’ll be hearing alot of Jack Johnson. Ladies…Love Shack is a good one to play too. See how your kids like that one.


    1. Hahahaha yea…so much will not be ok very soon here. Sigh. Her lyrics are really probably the worst I’ve heard in a long time. I have to be SUPER careful of all the vintage Blink 182 on my iPod if it’s on shuffle in the car…I have a pretty fast “skip button” finger!!


  2. Points for Pumped up Kicks & Somebody that I used to know!! Both on my latest running mix and i swear i owe it to those songs for getting me through mile 8 two weeks ago.

    Jake loves Yellow Submarine! I sing it to him in the bath, and when he’s feeling a little cranky or fussy. Calms him right down. I made up a playlist on my iPhone with songs that mike and i love and that my mom used to sing to me. He definitely is very ok with whatever is on the radio to and from daycare!! (which is awesome, because i’m not the biggest fan of Raffi or whatever it is the kids are listening to these days).


  3. Hahahaha Sarah that is hilarious!!

    Lills loves rap and rock music. Last night we were dancing to Busta Rhymes. I had a moment where I thought to myself, it’s really good she doesn’t understand these words yet!!


  4. I’m also really really embarrassed to admit that Nate LOVES Ke$ha…radio edited Ke$ha anyway (her lyrics are HORRENDOUS!). He thinks its hysterical to run around screaming “go insane, go insane, throw some glitter, make it rain!!” hahahaha. Oh boy…


  5. I cannot handle kids’ music, with the exception of Raffi (who will always hold a special place in my heart!). We listen to a lot of Johnny Cash, Barenaked Ladies, and Foo Fighters in the car here! Especially the kids’ albums with adults singing in fake kid-like voiced- ACK! They grate on my very last (and I mean laaaast, these days!) nerve…shudder!
