It is always nice when we can go for a car ride and listen to music that the whole family enjoys. But, when you have little ones, that usually means kid songs. Yes, they are fun to sing 1-2 times, but when the girls are asking for it 6-7 times in one car ride, you can find yourself asking "Are we there yet?" just so that you can shut the radio off. :-) But, recently, the girls have become fans of some of the songs my husband and I love to listen to. I find it relaxing to turn the radio on or pop in a CD when I am preparing dinner. And, on a few occasions when I am listening to music while cooking, the girls will be in the living room across the hall playing, and listening along. As a result, they have become fast fans of Katy Perry and her new hit song, "Roar," as well as Avicci's smash hit, "Wake Me Up." They love these songs so much, that they continue to ask me to play the music videos on the television and can sing both songs word for word.
I was planning to share a more in-depth review of this recent "NOW That's What I Call Music! Vol. 48," but I thought if you follow my blog, or are fans of this best-selling, multi-artist album series, then you probably already know how great this and the other "NOW That's What I Call Music" CD's are. Just look at the play list above, and you will see the top hit songs that are in full rotation on the radio today. But, instead, I thought I would share a fun video I took of the girls the other day, rocking out to Katy Perry's Roar, as we drove around checking out the holiday lights. I like how I caught Arabella off guard, and she got camera shy at the end. :-)
Enjoy...and Happy Thanksgiving!
