Lucy's favorite CDs (No joke)

1. Fris!!! Fris fris fris fris fris fris. Fris.

2. eieieieieieie (oh).*

3. "Donna." As in Ma. Yeesh.** I still remember my older sister asking "Dad, what's a virgin?" No, I don't remember his answer. If things keep going in this direction, I think Lucy will be asking this question by age four.

4. "Back! Back!" (Well, Beck). Question: Is "Sexx Laws" appropriate for toddlers? Really?***

5. Apple. Fiona, that is. Don't know why she should like this, since it's decently age-appropriate. Well, except for the bad breakup songs and introspection about betrayal and some violence. Hmm. No, this is right up her alley.

6. Fris. Fris fris fris fris fris fris fris. Fris. More heartbreak! More breakups! And lots of Bowie references!

Note to self: Perhaps we should start buying more children's music? Even though she refuses to listen to it? Help!

*Translation: Ella Fitzgerald's "Old MacDonald". Blisteringly fast.
**Blame Dyami. He keeps pushing dance music on her!
***Blame the day-glo cover. And Momma, who has a soft spot in her heart for Midnite Vultures. "She looks so Israeli!" Hahahahahaha.

See, I was hoping you wouldn't. Because I find the stuff overwhelmingly insipid and was hoping you'd pave the way and let me know how it turns out.

Myself, I always thought my collection of They Might Be Giants albums were entirely appropriate child fare that I could also enjoy. And yes, I'm a bit shy to admit I am (or, at least, was) a TMBG fan. Minus a few obvious songs, I'd think Soul Coughing's lyrics would also be fun for kids, as long as the child is not too introspective.

Yes, so much of it is kind of insipid. Except when it's not. Like children's literature.
For some reason TMBG's stuff doesn't sit well with me--maybe because I have a hard time listening to it now. Tho I used ot be a big fan. Tried Fllod with Lucy. She didn't become a huge fan.
