The Great Preschool Songbook
In our Honda, 3:35pm today. ST humming something in his carseat.
Me: ST, what's that song you're humming?
ST: It's a song that we sing in preschool. It's a song for kids.
Me: Really? Can you sing it for me?
ST: Sure. (Sings) It had to be you.... it had to be you... I stumbled around and finally found somebody who....
Me: That's not a preschool song. That's a love song.
ST: Yes, it is. I know I love it.
(Later that afternoon he started singing snippets of "I'll Be Seeing You." Turns out they're listening to the Rod Stewart Great American Songbook CD in preschool -- I called to find out! I can't stand Rod Stewart, but at least he's learning the standards, which is what we play at home anyway when we're not listening to NPR. Anything to keep him away from the garbage that is Justin Timberlake!)
For phdme: what the heck is up with Sting these days? First a crappy, sappy duet with Sheryl Crow (shoot me now!) and now crazy LUTE music? I guess once you've made it to the top you can afford to get weird.
