For the past few weeks my 2yo has required that I rock him to sleep to a cover of the Thompson Twin's "Hold Me Now" by someone named Eden XO. Asked for it twice last night.

Maybe I've just gotten used to them, but I don't mind the Music Together CDs too much. I'd definitely take those over Music for Aardvarks.

my 2 year old loves Pentatonix. help

My 2.5 year old was totally obsessed with their Sesame Street numbers song cover, he called it POW and demanded to watch it repeatedly a couple months ago. Then it just stopped. Same thing with the Truck Tunes videos on Youtube, though sometimes he does sing some of those songs randomly while playing with trucks. He's also at the stage where he's starting to sing all the time, mostly classic kid hits that he hears at daycare which is funny as shit because he sort of plays with the melody and the lyrics aren't all there yet.

He really isn't interested in any music that I play around the house, though sometimes he'll dance to dancehall reggae stuff, and will sort of shake his head back and forth when I listen to Slayer or Metallica (he also does this same motion when I grind coffee at the store).

But he loves watching it - we'd take him to university events with the marching band and he would just go nuts yelling DRUMS TUBAS TROMBONES! and talking about them for the next couple days. He also is really into watching some episodes of Austin City Limits (Iggy Pop, Lauryn Hill, Kendrick Lamar, Paul Simon) and will sometimes play his kid drum set along while watching.

we briefly had Pitch Perfect 2 on and she was not enthralled at all so that bullet has been dodged, for now

Should we have a thread for our progeny and their app creations? ref the IMM thread on making music with an ipad

Happy to just put that stuff here. Here is what Ben made recently:

KRFT is amazing.

ac/D.C.'s "TNT" was an early favorite of my boys. They also ask me to play it on guitar at home and the younger one seems eager to learn it himself. It's damn simple so a good starting point.

Ha! Owen just started learning Thunderstruck last night.

Whoa DJI that really is a p cool track!

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 1 June 2017 21:03 (three years ago) link

that track is pretty darn good! also i initially misread your name as DJP and i thought it was one of his little guys making it.

My daughter plays a game with me where she holds my hand by the wrist and uses it to make me slap myself with it. Today it occurred to me to show her the Losing My Edge video and she got a real kick out of trying to make me slap my face at the same time James Murphy got slapped.
