Heather and I, and at times Eric tend to have "song phases", which is to say favorite songs that when they come up on the playlist, we stop whatever we are doing and jam out, singing along, being ridiculous, you know, the usual family stuff.
This morning I got thinking that it might be fun to list some of the songs that have obtained our favor over the past three or four years. So, here you go!
What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction: This is our current favorite. Awesome beat, awesome lyrics, awesome message. We're loving it. Eric gives his eyes an extra roll when we get to the "na na na na" part, because he is too much of a music snob to enjoy songs that don't have enough lyrics without resorting to the old "na na na" trick. Heather and I don't care though. We are impervious to eye rolls.
Life's a Happy Song from The Muppets: Heather and I once did a full-on performance of this in Sams Club, her in the cart, me swinging the cart around, both of us singing among the bulk bags of almonds and Craisins. I have no pride. Shocker, I know.
Let My Love Open the Door from Pete Townsend: I think this one is self-explanatory, no?
Rumor Has It by Adele
We Built the City by Jefferson Starship
Ray of Light by Madonna: This was one of Eric's contributions
Have a Little Faith in Me by Mandy Moore: We've been singing this one for years.
Tears of a Clown by Smokey Robinson
I Like to Move It Move It from Madagascar
Feeling Hot Hot Hot by Buster Poindexter
Dynamite by Taio Cruz
Tokyo by Imagine Dragons
Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars
Forever by Chris Brown
Any suggestions from the rest of you, peanut gallery? We're always on the hunt for some good peppy tunes.
