Here are the playlists:
The California Mix
It's easy to tell the ever-inquisitive Boy what the name of the song is.
The Beastie Mix
The husband says it's the most random playlist he's ever created.
It ranges from Bert and Ernie to House of Pain.
The Lad actually requested the order of the first three songs on his mix: "Wagon Wheel! Choo-choo song! THEN Die Die Die." The husband finished up the list tonight with the help of the boys. He said they went through probably 25 songs so Beastie could pick out the last five they needed.
Both of the boys are a little obsessed with the Avett Brothers. They've almost burnt me out of them, and I love that group. They also really like Ryan Adams' Rock N Roll -- "This is rocking, Momma!" -- however, I realized in a hurry the other day that I should probably skip the song that drops the F-bomb every other word. In related news, we're trying to encourage The Boy to like Weezer songs OTHER than Hashpipe. I realize not every family would think this stuff is kid-appropriate, but I just can't drive around listening to Elmo all the time, and I was raised on The Doors and Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc and survived. I figure they'll be OK, too.
What do your kids listen to? Anybody besides the husband still burning mix CDs?
