High Rotation

What we're listening to around our place. A LOT of Weezer's Pork and Beans. Abby adores it. Wants to hear it 101 times in a row... and wants you to "turn it up loud!" She makes up her own lyrics, but belts out the "I don't care!" bits with relish.

Both kids have been singing "We Will Rock You" frequently. I don't know why, but if it means they aren't arguing with each other, I don't care, I don't care, I don't care!

Rob is listening to.... I'm not sure what he's listening to right now. Nothing I'm listening to anyway. We have different musical tastes these days. He hasn't heard of half the artists that are on my ipod.
I think he has Phantom of the Opera going in the truck on the way to work.

I am tuning out to Bruise by the Chairlifts, Winding Wheel by Ryan Adams and Summer by India.Arie. And as always, a little Nina Simone and some Ella Fitzgerald.

Embarrassed to have on my itunes: Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" and Dexy Midnight Runner's "Come on Eileen." Sussanah may never speak to me again.

'Come on Eileen' and 'Tainted Love' are absolute classics of my youth. I'd have those too. If I ever get an iPod...

I'm still chuckling at the idea of Rob and the Phantom of the Opera...does he sing along?

I'll talk to you - I LOVE Come on Eileen!

What's wrong with those two songs? I've made students tap dance to both of them!

He DOES sing along!

I have "Come on Eileen" but not "Tainted Love."

You already know I think that I have Ella and Nina - I believe we have established previously that we have very similar tastes in music!

It's not wise to upset The Phantom!

"...remember there are worse things than a shattered chandelier."

I don't have either 'come on Eileen' or 'tainted love' - but I should.

I should also load up my old Depeche Mode stuff. Actually I'll put it on Blossom's machine and further her musical education...

Oh, and I have been known to sing along to Phantom.

I should also reveal that at age 13 I could sing the ENTIRE soundtrack to Evita off by heart. Including the talkie bits.
