In an effort to combat some of the inevitable oversurge of Christmas music, I downloaded some music and made some new playlists for my ipod this month. I decided to make a mix for the boys as well, since we're in the car a lot, and they're at the age that they all have favorite songs. We do a lot of driving. And it's not that I won't let them listen to some Christmas music. It's just that I don't think we need to listen to nothing but Christmas music for the next month.
Do you know what Pierce's favorite song is right now? You'll never guess. No really, never, ever guess.
It's the love theme from Flashdance. Which is instrumental and just happens to be one of my favorites as well. Which is how he knows about the song - of course he has not seen the movie (the movie is rated R and horrible - none of the characters have any depth and there's a whole lot of objectification going on).
So, readers, how many 8 year olds do you know that say their favorite song is the Love Theme from Flashdance?
If you've never heard it, it's definitely worth pulling up on iTunes for a listen. To Pierce's credit, it is moving music. Readers, what's on your favorite song list right now?
