Man oh man. The kids asked me what the CD was playing in the car a few months ago. I explained to them that it was a CD that I made full of songs that I liked. After I got past the whole "I made this CD" - they thought I was singing (yeah, like I'd listen to that!) - they got it. We all went about our business and now they want their own. I think I have created a monster - three monsters actually. So, I told them that we'd make a list of their favorite songs and when we got enough we'd made a Mix CD for them. And here I thought middle school was over - that my time of making mix CD's had passed.
Wondering what on earth a 7 year old and two 4 year olds want on their Mix CD? Well, the lisat might surprise you:
Sister Psychic - Go kids! This one is their absolute favorite song (well, this weel at least). Thanks for picking something that doesn't have little kids singing or isn't mind numbing.
Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison has captivated another generation.
La Vida Mickey - Love Ricky Martin, but this is Mickey Mouse's version. Oh well.
I'm a Believer (from Shrek) -Witness the power of Disney's marketing machine.
Can't Get Enough of You Baby - More Smashmouth - can't complain about this one.
Celebration - Yup. It's the wedding standard and my kids want it.
Will2K - Will Smith? Yup, Will Smith.
Apollo (from Rocnoceros) - Yes, it's all about the moom landing in 1969
And last but not least:
Helloboodbye's Here - It's a dance track...
And just this morning they asked for some Black Eyed Peas. They have a pretty broad range of likes so I guess I can't complain much. And the Mickey song is the only one that might drive me over the edge. The rest, even the Rocnoceros songs, are pretty good. But a Mix CD kids?
