I have realised lately that we don’t listen to enough music at home. Sure we listen to “normal” music, like the music channels on DSTV or Lollos and classical music on a Sunday, but I’ve noticed that the girls, especially Isabel, like to dance.
It’s more of a little jiggle than anything else and the cutest thing to behold, but I think it would be great if we could crank the music up and just wriggle our worries away. And it would be great for a laugh.
Thing is. I’m an ex-wanna-be Goth and I’ve never really been into “happy” music. I’ve always leaned more toward the tortured music genre. And mostly tortured female. And Led Zeppelin. And The Cure. You see what I mean?
The kids will definitely end up getting exposed to “our” music, but for now I really want them to experience music for the sheer reckless joy of it.
So. I need help. I want to put together a play-list of happy but harmless ‘adult’ music. By Adult I mean ABBA-type stuff and by harmless I mean no Jack Parow. After hearing “Cooler as Ekke” once on Gareth’s show Daniel recited “jy’t ‘n tattoo van ‘n slang op jou tette”. Pitch perfect.
ps: if I have enough suggestions I want to create an extra page and credit the suggestion-giver. Aaaand.. GO!
pps: I was jiggling away to something the other day and Daniel stared at me in horror and ordered me to stop immediately. I. Don’t. Care.
