Ever have a song in your head and you cannot stop hearing it?! This happens to me occasionally and I just go with it. No point in fighting it.
Michael and I were in the car the other day and I did something I really enjoy, I embarrassed my son. I decided to groove along to what was playing on the radio, and it happened to be a song by Foster the People called Pumped Up Kicks. I dare you to listen to that and not at least nod your head. I don't like the lyrics particularly, but the song is catchy. It's rather different from a lot of the songs that are played on the radio station Michael likes. Pumped Up Kicks has a catchy, singable melody and they play instruments.
A good example of a song I can tolerate but don't really like is Just Can't Get Enough, by the Blackeyed Peas.It's Michael's favorite song. I am somewhat fond of it, though, because I have a cute memory of having Bart, Colton, and Michael in the car recently and all of them were sitting in the back seat singing along to this song. Colton especially was grooving to it and knew every word, even the part in the middle where they do "switchout," which he got to do in his best bass voice. Definitely a happy song for this generation.
My idea of a happy song is September by Earth Wind and Fire. I thought it was interesting that at the end of the first Night At The Museum movie when things are fine and they need a happy song, they play September, not something made in the past 20 years.
Great music is timeless.
I was in the car yesterday on the way home from work, and a news story came on NPR that was boring, and I thought, I want to hear that song Pumped Up Kicks and I hit the button on the radio that has Michael's station plugged in and there it was, like magic. What are the odds?!
Life has been rather routine the past few days. I am in a better mood than I was in the other day when I posted about feeling down, thank goodness.
We watched the updated version of Tron, Tron Legacy, last night. Eye candy is how one of my friends described it. I prefer character over visuals. That was weird, seeing Jeff Bridges looking very young again. Creepy. It was a little too "out there" for me. Michael LOVES that film, for unknown reasons.
I preferred Life As We Know It, which was mostly just an update on Three Men and a Baby, but it was cute. They filmed LAWKI here in Atlanta, and once that was mentioned, I got totally distracted trying to figure out where scenes were filmed. Except for a couple of views of the skyline, it really could've been anywhere.
Gotta go make breakfast for the boy. Y'all have a good Friday..
