Blog-o! Notes from latte.ca

Fri, 27 Jul 2012

The girls are six and nine now, and they are starting to hear pop music at camp and at their friends houses. When we were in Saskatchewan they asked me to make mix CDs for them, and they both requested a few songs. I padded their choices with a few tunes of my own, and here's what they ended up with:

Delphine's 2012 Summer Mix CD

"Call Me Maybe", Carly Rae Jepsen
"Black Horse & Cherry Tree", K.T. Tunstall
"Mama Said", The Shirelles
Marmoset!
"Drinking Games", Library Voices
CBC Saskatchewan is really great about playing local music on their morning show, and we heard this while we were hanging out in my mum's room having our morning tea.
"Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People
I asked Twitter what terrible pop songs the kids were listening to these days, and the lovely @LadySnarksalot sent me her playlist. This is one of her tunes.
"Nothing On You" by B.o.B. featuring Bruno Mars
"Firework" by Katy Perry
Delphine has this song memorized and can sing it while performing a dance of her own creation.
