Today I am grateful that the kids and I made a mixed CD together yesterday! We had so much fun doing it, and they were able to put a lovely eclectic mix together for our car ride to Holland with Oma and Aunt Christine. (I did steer them a bit as we would have ended up with another copy of the Beatles' Number One CD and a bunch of Christmas songs if I hadn't, but for the most part it was all them.)
What does their CD sound like, you ask? Here is the playlist!
1. Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
2. Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys
3. Daytripper - The Beatles
4. Love Shack - The B-52's
5. Ticket to Ride - The Beatles
6. Particle Man - They Might Be Giants
7. Shake It Out - Florence + the Machine
8. Piano Man - Billy Joel
9. The a Team - Ed Sheeran
10. We Are Young (feat. Janelle Monae) - Fun.
11. Let It Be - The Beatles
12. Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
13. Here It Goes Again - Ok Go
14. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift
15. Twist and Shout - The Beatles
16. Istanbul (not Constantinople) - They Might Be Giants
17. Edelweiss (reprise) - The Sound of Music soundtrack
18. Hey Jude - The Beatles
19. Viva la Vida - Coldplay
20. Monday, Monday - The Mamas and The Papas
Gotta love a good eclectic mix! It really does represent a lot of what they like now, though, and it is nice to have a record of their current favorites, a list that will undoubtedly change wildly over time.
Have a wonderful day!
P.S. On a side note, the kids love Here It Goes Again more for the video than the song itself. So here's what they are thinking of when they hear the song ...
They actually like this next video better, but the song itself isn't quite as dynamic as Here It Goes Again.
