I just can’t listen to kids’ music. One of my very first jobs after getting my working papers at 14 was at a children’s toy store. Chatting up parents and playing with toys were the awesome parts of my job. However, the soundtrack of children’s music in the background made me want to climb the walls at times.
From birth, my kids have listened to the music of our lives.
My oldest has been a reggae fan from the time he was a baby. If we wanted him to stop crying, reggae was the only way to pull him together. He might have known the lyrics to One Love before the ABCs.
I am not sure how to classify the Grateful Dead, but all of the kids love their tunes. Fire on the Mountain, Casey Jones, and Truckin’ are a few of the ones they return to time after time.
This is a new addition to their favorite artist list thanks to the new Netflix series, The Beat Bugs. Each episode is based around 1-2 songs from The Beatles. We love the music – the characters – and the storylines. We have watched the first Season through 3-4 times already and cannot wait for Season 2.
Surprisingly, the boys also learned a little science from the show. After learning about slug habitats from the show, they were thrilled to spot their first ever slugs in the yard – though the 5 year old did wonder why the slugs were not blue like in Beat Bugs!
With our last name sharing the name of one of Maroon 5’s latest hits, the kids think they wrote the song about us. Let them believe that, I say!
Uptown Funk is just one of the songs that grabs us and gets the whole family dancing!
Is there any song ever created more fun to rap to than Ice Ice Baby? I am just glad the boys love this classic as much as I do.
I am not proud to admit it, but my little ones love Pitbull thanks to camp. My oldest would listen to it on repeat until the end of time if I let him!
What musicians do your little ones gravitate toward?
