She knows good music when she hears it

Last Tuesday a friend and I took the kids to a local museum.  It is about a 20 minute trip, so I loaded up the iPod, hooked up the FM transmitter, and we hit the road listening to the Juno soundtrack.

On the way home, the last song ended and I turned off the radio since we were only a few miles from the house.  As soon as Little realized that the music had stopped she began chanting, “more susic.”  To appease my girl I turned the iPod back on and started a Caedmon’s Call album.

We were only a few seconds into the first song when I heard from the back seat – “not dis susic!”  I asked if she wanted to listen to Juno again instead.  “Uh huh,” she said.  As the soundtrack began again she said, “Boo like dis song.” Um, yeah, I’m sure he does.

That evening I was telling Matt about what she’d said.  He asked her what kind of music she liked, and she responded “Dee-no” (translation: Juno).  Now anytime you ask her about music her response is “Dee-no.”  She knows good music, and she definitely knows what she likes.

A new take on Pachelbel’s Canon in D

This is so funny; it made me laugh out loud. Those of you who have older children can probably relate more than I can.

I’m so excited; yesterday I was able to get a Monk & Neagle CD via BooMama’s great CD Extravaganza! It should arrive in 10 days or so, and I’m sure I’ll have more to say about it after I’ve listened once or thirty times.

“Yellow Ledbetter” by Pearl Jam

This is one of the songs on the soundtrack of my high school years. I’m so glad someone finally figured out the lyrics.

For the love of music

Little seems to be developing a keen ear for music. When Bach’s Partita for Solo Violin No.2 in D Minor begins playing she stops what she is doing to listen. If she is playing and we turn on Miles Davis she will get quiet and listen. M was playing guitar one evening last week and Little dropped everything to watch and listen. On Friday I was watching The Rachael Ray Show and Vince Gill was performing. Little was paying no attention until he started to play guitar and sing; when the music started she strained to turn to the TV and was perfectly still and quiet until the song ended, at which point she went about playing again.

I don’t know what it is about the music that catches her attention, but if this trend continues there will be lots of music playing in our house when she is a bit more mobile.
