Amy says:

“Smoke on the Water!”

On her first day of kindergarten, Amy told her teacher her favorite song and then proceeded to hum the famous tune for over an hour. I mumbled an apology to the teacher that included the phrase “older siblings” and wondered what Amy said that the teacher didn’t tell me. Somehow I doubt if the other kindergarteners share her eclectic tastes in music. She is also quite fond of “Don’t Drop a Brick on Your Foot” and wonders why XM Kids doesn’t play it more frequently.

Does anyone else think XM Disney is horrible?

  1. Drop a Brick is just new lyrics to an old song. I can’t remember it now – something really familiar from my childhood? Just listen to the tune, not the lyrics.

    As for XM Disney – I’m not thrilled with any of the Disney crap. I’d rather they listen to the stuff we grew up on. (Of course when they heard some of those songs in Shrek they thought they were new! LOL! I love being able to floor them by singing lyrics to complete songs they think are brand new!)

  2. It just hit me. Billy Boy (This is a much cheesier version of it though.)

    Oh, where have you been,
    Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Oh, where have you been,
    Charming Billy?
    I have been to seek a wife,
    She’s the joy of my life,
    She’s a young thing
    And cannot leave her mother.

    Did she ask you to come in,
    Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Did she ask you to come in,
    Charming Billy?
    Yes, she asked me to come in,
    There’s a dimple in her chin.
    She’s a young thing
    And cannot leave her mother.

    Can she make a cherry pie,
    Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Can she make a cherry pie,
    Charming Billy?
    She can make a cherry pie,
    Quick as a cat can wink an eye,
    She’s a young thing
    And cannot leave her mother.

    And so on…

  3. For the most part, we eschew the radio in favor of a carefully selected Playlist (or three) on the Zune and plugged into the stereo.

    But other times, no I don’t share your distaste for the Disney Channel. My daughter actually likes it, and I feel safe that nothing will slip through with lyrics that I would rather not hear her repeating.
