Last week we took a very short but much needed vacation, and one of the things I did to get ready was to make a special playlist on the iPod of Emily-approved songs; bouncy stuff, garage rock, some of the big band stuff she likes. And by the 2nd day, she was asking for her 3 favorite songs, over and over (and yes, over).
"Everybody Monkey" by Freddie Cannon (or, as I like to say, "Freddie BOOM! BOOM! Cannon")
"Gorilla" by The Shandells
"Don't Take it Away" from Yo Gabba Gabba! (See the clip here)
I realize one day it'll be all Cheetah Girls or Devo 2.0 but for now...whew! At least we can take it. And later...well, I think headphones will work out just fine.
