Where does she get this from? I wince when I tell you that it's from me! Where did I get this from? Definitely my mother. Do you see a trend here? I'm pretty sure it's genetic although my taste in music is totally different from my mom's taste. I grew up with her listening to Rod Stewart over and over, ELO over and over, David Bowie over and over, and Meatloaf over and over (probably why I don't listen to this musicians today).
The very 1st song that I can remember playing over and over was I Feel Love - The Benji Theme Song. I was about 4 or 5 and my parents bought me the soundtrack from the movie. I would sit on the couch in our living room and play the song over and over carefully lifting the record needle back to the beginning after each song.
Here is the song from the movie...
It's good, huh? You'll be singing it all day now. Feel free to play it over and over.
What's my daughter's favorite song right now? Well, I've been hooked on Bollywood movies lately (more on that in another upcoming post) and have been listening to the music from it in the car. Here is the one that she likes - it's a little different from my favorite song at her age.
I'm officially dard-e-discoed out.
It's funny because I guess the thing we have in common is that both of our favorite songs as a kid are from movies (although I will never let her watch Shah Rukh Khan dance this scene in Om Shanti Om - look it up on YouTube if you want to see why).
Do you or your children have a favorite song that you like to listen to repeatedly? If so, share it in the comments section. I'd love to hear from you.
