YOU Got Me Feelin' Emotions...

The CD player in my car is broken (Steve said it's beyond him...anyone know of a good local person who could maybe fix it??) so I've had to resort to the radio lately. I found this fun "lite rock favorites" station (Mix 92.9) that I have really been liking. They play a mix of oldies, and songs that blast me right back to middle school/high school. Funny how a song can instantly bring up all kinds of memories of a specific time in your life.

Last night on the way to GEMS, Mariah Carey and I were screaming belting out "Emotions." I had that cassette tape. She was my FAVORITE. I used to be able to hit those screech-notes when I was about 12, too--but apparently my vocal chords have shrunk or something since then? Definitely wasn't getting up there in the car last night. Amazing how your brain retains all those songs you haven't heard in years, though...

Meanwhile Baby, whose hearing is by now fully developed, is already thinking of suing mama for aural assault :)

When I was pregnant with David, I had just gotten the first Maroon5 CD and was listening to it all the time. After he was born, the only way he would fall asleep in the car would be by listening to that CD. And it only took about 20 seconds of the first song to knock him out.
Now I've been listening to John Mayer's Continuum album a lot. So maybe that will put Grace to sleep once she arrives. And that CD makes a lot more sense than Maroon5 :) But David is our funky kid- he loves jazz and funk music.

that's interesting! usually I do get on kicks where I listen to the same CD a hundred million times in a row. I don't think I've done that with any CDs since I got pregnant, though. too bad!

I love belting it out with Mariah too, especially back in the day. :)
