Five on Friday - The Road Trip Version
This week's Five on Friday was inspired by some of the music that I listened to while making my recent drive up to Maine and back. I think that one of the reasons that I enjoy driving as much as I do is that it gives me the chance to listen to music and when I get the opportunity to drive somewhere on my own that means that I actually get to listen to my music rather than to what's on one of the girls' iPods. Of course, a lot of the music that's on my iPod is also on one or the other of theirs so I guess it's not really my music so much as music that I heard when either Amanda or Jamie was in the car with me and then I stole it!
That very thing had me laughing a little bit on this last road trip as I was trying to picture me as a kid trying to get one of my parents to play the music that I liked and knowing that there was no way that would ever have happened - never mind them actually liking it and listening to it themselves! Honestly, my kids have no idea how lucky they are sometimes!
Anyhow, all that aside here are my five choices for the week with the first three songs coming courtesy of Jamie and the second two by way of Amanda. Oh, and just for the record, I do actually sing along with these songs while I'm driving which probably makes it a good thing I'm in the car by myself as I'm afraid I'm not a very good singer no matter how much I might like to try to be!
Oh hey! Don't forget to swing by Trav's Thoughts and check out of the other FoFers to see what their musical choices were for the week. And as always, you're more than welcome to join us and share some of your music no matter whether it's your own or you "stole" it from your kids!
