If music be the food of love…..

We usually listen to Son no 3’s Blackberry streaming via Bluetooth to my car kit in the mornings on the way to school. (Don’t you just love technology – look Ma, no wires!). 

Anyway, this morning he changes the track and asks me if I knew what movie this piece of music was from. So I think for a moment and say it is from the nightclub scene in XXX.  He says no, but I am close – it is from another movie with a club scene. So I then blurt out that it is from the opening scene of a vampire movie where everyone is dancing in a club which looks like a basement and the sprinklers switch on and blood comes out of the sprinklers.  He says yes, the movie is called Blade.   It then occurred to me that it is creepy that a middle aged women knows this much about vampire movies. 

Typically we listen to my sons playlist which includes, what he referrers to, as New Age Music or Club Music (which I refer to as head banging crap – but that is another story).  Over the years we have managed to introduce him to some of the stuff we grew up with – most of which is being re-mixed into something they relate to nowadays. 

Some of our Family favourites are the following artists which are timeless:

  • Queen
  • Meatloaf
  • Soft Cell
  • Stevie Wonder
  • Rod Stewart
  • Prince
  • Kenny Loggins
  • Neil Diamond
  • and various others
Once I have dropped my kids off at school, I get the opportunity to listen to my music.  Typically I am not too fussy but I have my favourites which change on a regular basis – at the moment my favourite song is “Secrets” by One Republic and the other song I really enjoy is “Everybody Loves Me”, by the same artist.  I have to listen to this song at least once in the morning in order to remind myself that I am loved by all, with no strings attached.  Yes, my kids tell me regularly that they love me, but this is usually followed by batting eye-lids and the word PLEASE!
