My Playlist

Day three of my October challenge, and I’m already resorting to memes! Ha, not really, but Erin tagged me, so who am I to refuse her?!

Today’s meme:

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether or not they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

Like Erin, I haven’t been listening to much music of my own recently. My taste is pretty eclectic, and I love our CD collection, but it just hasn’t been getting a workout lately. We do watch Australian Idol, and cringe as they murder good songs, and I always have the radio on in the car, but in general, it’s Finn who picks the music during the day.

I don’t know how many of you have three and four year olds, or how far back you can remember, but if you do or once did, perhaps you’ll remember the soundtrack to your life at that point? For some it’s endless Wiggles’ songs, for me it’s endless Play School songs. Play School is the best kids television in Australia, as far as I’m concerned, and in celebration of their 40th birthday this year, Finn and I went out and bought him a double CD pack of fun songs. Plus, we also bought Justine Clarke’s album ‘I like to Sing’ (Justine is a Play School presenter – the hot one, if you ask the dads of Australia :giggle: ). So Finn has his own little collection, he knows how to work the a/v equipment better than me, and thus we have endless repetitions of these three CDs. But honestly, I do enjoy them. There are some great fun songs, and we have a lot of fun singing them together. So here are seven of our favourites, and a sampling of the lyrics for your amusement:

Ch.. Ch.. Ch.. The Toothbrush Song
“When you wake up in the morning; At a quarter to one; And you can’t go back to sleep; And you want to have some fun; You brush your teeth…”

Shake My Sillies Out
“I gotta shake, shake, shake my sillies out… And wiggle my waggles away”

Upsy Down Town
“In upsy down town; The sky is in the sea; The sea is where the sky should be…”

New Shoe Laces
“I’m going places in my new shoe laces; Put me through my paces in my new shoe laces…”

On the Ning Nang Nong
“On the ning nang nong; Where the cows go bong; And the monkeys all say boo…”

Bump-a-Deedle Dance
“Everybody says sit down, sit down… Well I can’t sit down no I can’t sit down; ‘Cause my feet are all full of dance around”

And our number one favourite, because it’s what I do all day (and just why are 3-year-olds so fascinated with babies nappies, anyway?)…

Yucky Mucky Nappy
“Baby isn’t happy with a yucky mucky nappy, yucky mucky nappy on the baby-o… Put another nappy on the baby-o…”

So there you have it! Now don’t expect me to go tagging people for this, that just seems too much like work! (Besides, also like Erin, I’m also not sure I still have 7 readers left – I think you all ran away because I got too boring!) How about, if you’re reading this now, and haven’t done this meme, you consider yourself tagged. Or not. As you like.

Hope everyone’s having a happy Tuesday – it’s glorious, here… I love Spring 🙂
