I've well-documented how much Audrey loves the iPhone. She'll play games, look at photos, play videos and voice memos, and listen to music. Sometimes I'll hear her playing some non-kiddie tunes and I wonder if the same thing is happening to her that happens to me. But then I noticed that it was the same handful of songs and that there was a common thread amongst them. They all have something in their titles that sounds kiddie-ish or somehow attractive to her:
"Time to Pretend", MGMT
"Jack and Jill", Kim Richey
"Candy", Iggy Pop
"Paper Doll", Louis XIV
Anything by the Ting Tings
See? They fit right in next to songs like "Big Red Car" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang".
As long as Audrey is getting down to my tunes, here are a few more that I think she should add to her playlist:
"Senses Working Overtime" by XTC
"I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor", Arctic Monkeys
"She's Expensive", The Virgins
One time I walked in on her playing a song called "Jack Killed Mom", but I'd like to think that it was just because it comes right after "Jack and Jill". That had better be why. You think that's why? I dunno. There's also a Lucinda Williams song on there called "Mama You Sweet" but I never hear her play that one.
What about you? Any songs in your rotation that should be your kid's theme song or that you'd like to dedicate to them?
