This has been a busy, fun, very musical week.
It all started on Monday when Kim at Co-Pilot Mom made a shocking and entirely awesome string of confessions and then it just got better and more musical from there.
On Friday my friend Rebecca (“Bitsy” to her best tweeps) at A Little Bit of Momsense updated her “Current Song Obsession” and it made my day.
I thought it would be fun for me to follow suit and share a few of the songs that I just can’t stop playing.
I seem to be all about the covers lately.
The first one is a cover of “When Doves Cry” by Prince. I know. I know. Risky territory. And yet somehow this works.
Here is The Be Good Tanyas with their version.
I’ve written before about my love of Walk Off The Earth and everyone knows about their Gotye cover, but have you heard this?
They are amazing musicians! The video is just too cute! They have a great YouTube channel and I think everyone should check it out.
Here’s another song that we seem to always enjoy, no matter who is performing it.
Pentatonix! Who knew?!
On Saturday I had grand plans to attend a Christmas Craft Show, but it just was not in the cards.
You know what was in the cards? More music!
Thing 1 plays trumpet in his school band. His trumpet is in desperate need of a cleaning and we needed a new cleaning kit. So, with the clock ticking*, I rounded up my little family and we hit the road and high-tailed it to our local music store for a kit and, as luck would have it, a trumpet stand. (Musical instruments in cases are not happy, played musical instruments. As my big brother would say, “Are you a trumpet player or a trumpet owner?” Note the difference.**) With the stand he will be able to see his trumpet more often and hopefully play it more often, too.
After our musical victory with all things trumpet, we felt we deserved a little treat, so we went to a 50’s diner and had dinner.***
Do you know what any 50s diner worth its salt has? A Jukebox!
Do you know what any mother worth her salt always has when she goes to a 50s diner? Quarters!
Do you know what this all leads to? More music!
After dinner we came home to play a board game, but since I had a NaBloPoMo post to write I asked for a bit of time first. The Things kindly obliged and I came to my desktop to write, but something was missing. I needed some music.****
So, I fired up Songza and found not one, but two new favourite channels – “Disney’s Best Sing-Alongs” and “Singin’ in the Rain”.
So, would you agree that it was a very musical week?
Are you a fan of music? Do you sing?
What kind of music is your favourite?
What is *your* current music obsession?
*The music store closes at 5 on Saturdays and is closed on Sundays. Time was of the essence! We arrived at 4:54. Whew!
**Note the difference!
***Because *sings* Dinner in the diner.. nothing could be finer.. than to have your ham and eggs in Carolina!
****I may have a problem. Who’s to say? It’s a mystery, really!
