Fairly Odd Mother

Frantically waving my magic wand to make wishes come true.

Musical Meme

The awesome Mrs. Chicky tagged me for my third meme (I promise I'll stop counting after 10). The guidelines are: list seven songs you are into right now. No matter what they are. They must be songs you are presently enjoying. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

Now first a caveat: I have many, many CD's that I no longer listen to because the kiddos are always around. Those Parental Advisor labels all over my collection mean they aren't often the best thing for dance parties in our living room. Of course, I sometimes forget this and, for a while, we were listening to "My Humps" in the car until I really tuned into the lyrics. . .

So, the following is mostly stuff that I listen to with the kids. AND, in breaking news, Fairly Odd Father just presented me with my very own Nano, which means I will join millions of other parents in wandering around the house listening to my favorite songs and ignoring the screams and demands of the little rugrats whose bodies I will be stepping over as I keep the beat.

1. I'm Different by Butterfly Boucher, from For the Kids Too. I'm a sucker for British accents and this is no exception. She happily sings, "I'm different different different, nobody's like me. . .and that's ok with me, yeah, that's ok with me!" and I can almost see her stomping out of the pub all swagger and cockiness. Except that this is a kids' CD, so she is probably just stomping out of Gymboree after ripping the head off of Gymbo. We all sing this as loud as we can in the car.

2. For Boston by the Dropkick Murphys, from their Live on St. Patrick's Day release. Like Mrs. Chicky says, DKM are good anytime but especially pre-St. Patty's Day. Plus, last year Fairly Odd Father & I were able to go to one of their St. Patrick's Day shows and it was amazing. I now want to learn how to play bagpipes (seriously!).

3. Last Night A DJ Saved My Life by Indeep, from the Baby Loves Disco compilation CD. At our second trip to BLD, Belly won a CD in the dance contest (Woo hoo! Way to shake that booty!). We've played it to death already but this song sticks in my head for hours and hours.


4. 25 Irish Favorites. A cheapy CD I found in some bargain bin last year, this has all sorts of Irish tunes. We have had it playing pretty much all week and all the songs are running together in my head. It will go away after Saturday.

5. I Like to Move it by Reel 2 Real, from Ultimate Dance Party. When we named our third child "D', we gave him the initials DJ in case he wanted a nickname when he got older. Well, at the ripe old age of 2, he is already living up to his nickname by completely monopolizing the stereo. He puts this CD in every day, hits play and then---click. . .click. . .click. . .he breezes up to song #6 and stops at this one. He calls it 'Moo it". I think he likes it because he thinks it is a song about nursing which he is loathe to quit.


6. Atari Teenage Riot by ATR, from Burn, Berlin, Burn. This was the first song I tried to get onto my Nano (but I failed because I am inept and hadn't read any directions---heck, I believed those Mac commercials that said they are SOOOOO easy to use and thought I'd just figure it out). Anyway, this song really gets my blood running through my veins; even just thinking about it now makes me all jumpy. I wish I had seen them live but, for now, I'll just have to jump around my house while my children look at me like I've lost my head.

7. Smile by Lily Allen, from Alright, Still. Fairly Odd Father just handed this to me the other day and said, "LISTEN TO THIS!". I was fortunately going out alone because this is not a kid-friendly CD. Oh, I just love the Brits. That accent! I want Lily and I to hold hands and skip down the street and spit and smoke and swear. Think she'd let me? Her lyrics are funny, naughty and make me want to yell, "Hey you motherfuckers! So what if I drive a minivan!!!!"

So, hope I haven't alarmed anyone too much but that is what is on rotation right now.

Now off to tag seven people. . .

OK peoples---play along:

Mom-101 (there must be Journey, yes?),

Mr. Nice Guy (just pop a Percocet and start typing!),

Girl's Gone Child,

Another Mom Creation,

Memoirs of a Dysfunctional Housewife (once you stop puking, of course),

Alpha DogMa and

GingaJoy (who probably has a great accent)!

You are odd. Wonderfully, wonderfully odd.

I debated whether or not to put "I Like to Move It" on my list! The version from that Disney movie with the zoo animals (can't for the life of me remember the name!) is a huge hit with Chicky.

Great list!

I'm digging Lilly Allen right now too. SO far son has not noticed what a filthy mouth she's got!

OK--I'll get to this ASAP;-)

Um. You really had to 'tune in' to realize that 'My Humps' was not children-friendly? That's just funny.

If I do this meme I will totally embarrass you (and myself) with the answers. I haven't put in a cd or turned on the itunes in months...

Everytime I see one of those Parental Advisory stickers I can't help but think that Tipper Gore is laughing at me, cos now I appreciate her perspective.

Thanks for the tag. I hope to live up to your high standards! Just give me a few days to organize my thoughts.
