The little man jamming One Direction song with the daddy....

The daddy was jamming in the bedroom last night. When he started playing one of One Direction's songs the little man came running to listen. Why the daddy chose to play that kind of music we don't know but rumour has it though, it was to attract his children's attention. Whether that's true we will never know....
Right - back to what happened. The little man listened to the daddy playing for a few minutes and then ran out, only to return with his own guitar. For a good 20 minutes he was very concentrated learning some different chords on the guitar.

Jamming before bedtime....

We were given this lovely piano a couple of weeks ago. It was an old school friend of mine that needed a new home for their piano. I have always wanted one so I was more than happy to take it off their hands. The daddy is an amazing drummer but also plays the piano (and guitar I was asked not to forget to mention) so he was very pleased and so were the princess and the little man!

Tonight the three of them had a little jam before bedtime. The daddy directing the show....

It's party time.....

Friday night from 5pm to 9pm it was party time! The princess' school was having a schoolparty. There was popcorn, slush ice, cake, pizza and a disco. The princess had been looking forward to this for weeks, gone through various dresses she wanted to wear but ended up playing it safe with a classic black dress.... She did indeed look very cute.

 

She danced the night away and had a great time....

We've all done it.... haven't we??

Sung loudly with headphones on?? I know you've done it so no denying it!!! Anyhow, it's not me this time but the princess. Every night she can play, read, draw or something for half an hour before bedtime after the little man is put to bed. Last night she asked to listen to music which was okay if she put headphones on. She did but that didn't stop her from singing loudly! So Patience (Take That) Boyfriend (Alphabeat) and Call me maybe (Carly Rae Jepsen) was what she heard but all we heard was her..... And her version of the songs! Brilliant, it is defo a star we have here..... So Simon Cowell will be calling any day now with a contract, I'm sure!!
Don't you think....??

Not so silent Sunday in this house.....

The daddy has finally gotten himself an electric drumkit... Yeah, I know - how cool to be married to a drummer!! Also noisy though, so an electric drumkit with headphones, not a bad choice at all. The little man was sooooo impressed and loved listening to the daddy drumming...

Then he got to have a go and loved it! So did the princess and she really has an ear for playing the drums. The daddy can't wait to teach her and the little man....

"but you're my daddy"

The Ipod is playing and the Jackson 5 comes on with "blame it on the boogie" and the daddy asks his offspring if they remember who sings the song? Hmmm.... no answers immediately so he asks "who do I think is the greatest singer in the world?" With no hesiatation the princess answers "me!"
"No honey, it's Michael Jackson"... "but you're my daddy so you should think I'm the best singer in the world"

How do you recover...???

Never judge a book by it's cover....

Some say! Shouldn't that also apply to people? I think so, what about you?

Uncle has a new song out there....

Listen and enjoy! It's brilliant and the video is amazing! You're welcome to share it if you like what you see and hear!


We're off to the cinema in a minute... Mormor is coming to look after the princess and little man.
We're watching "We need to talk about Kevin" I loved the book and can't wait to see the film.

Have you read the book? Or seen the film?

A burning ring of fire.....

As we do nearly every dinnertime, we were listening to music yesterday. The Ipod just play songs randomly, the little man's favourite song comes on. Johnny Cash, Ring of fire. Yes, I know... not the most obvious choice for a 4 year old but a good one though!!
The chorus starts like this "I fell into a burning ring of fire".
The little man shakes his head (in disbelief) and says:

"If I fell into a ring if fire I would die!"

He continues to eat his dinner!

Cool uncle has done it again......

He's written another brilliant song which you lucky readers can see here. The video is so cute and the song just so lovely. I'll let you listen now...


So what do you think? We think he's amazing and the princess and little man think he's the coolest uncle in the world!!

Energy!

Is the name of the band who won the Danish song contest for children. It's so much better than the adult song contest, I think. (I miss when all the countries sang in their own language. It was so much more entertaining!) Well, back to the danish childrens song contest MGP it's called. It's brilliant, the children write their own music and lyrics, do their own little dance routines and they're all so cute. We watched the show 3 weeks ago. The princess loved it and we got her all the 10 songs on CD.
Result: She now knows all the ten songs by heart! Her bedroom door is closed for hours, music playing loudly and the princess singing even louder!
Suddenly silence and we all have to come in.
"Please put your hands in the air...!" 
Look at the concentration!

She's so much cooler than I was at her age. There was no childrens song contest but I loved it every year when the european songcontest was on. I tried to memorise all 30 songs in their original language so I could sing them in front of my mirror. I had a hairbrush as a microphone!
Maybe you can imagine what that sounded like....!!?? Not good I tell you!

Singing fills our home more than normal....

The princess has a show at school coming up in a few weeks. They need to learn a few songs so she's rehearsing a lot. She sings her heart out and (luckily... or should I say of course!) she's in tune. Makes it a whole lot easier to listen to! It's a nice mixture of songs from different eras and her costume is a baby-pink very princessy dress which she loves. I can't wait to see the show which will be performed at the school's yearly party for all the students, and for the youngest ones also their parents.
Tears will be flowing (yes mine) and I'll be beaming with pride. I know she'll be amazing, it's in her genes! The daddy and I (I can't read a note) consider ourselves good singers (the daddy's a brilliant singer, I was asked to add) so of course she'll be fantastic. Am I too much? Too much pressure....? No, she can handle it, but if she doesn't.....

" Do they know it's Christmas? "

Just saw the Glee Cast sing my favourite Christmas song. Now I don't know which version I love the most. Both make me cry all the way through the song. Want to hear it??
The children in the video are so sweet and sorry Bono, Mercedes just sang your line in the song (sorry again) and sang it even better, I think. I love her voice!

The Break Up, Dinner Scene!

video

Please spend the next 3 minutes and 10 seconds of your life to enjoy this very funny scene. If you haven't seen the film The Break Up it doesn't matter. You can still enjoy this. Trust me it is very funny.





Music Monday Christmas songs!

My absolute favourite Christmas song is this. I can't listen to it without crying. I love it (and to be honeste, I listen to it all year around) It has to be this version though. Not just because of the fantastic hairstyles!

Music Monday.

Here's a song I haven't heard for a while. Actually, it's a Danish song by Lis Sørensen called "Brændt" (Burned) which Natalie Imbruglia sang an English version of. Yesterday my soulmate and his good friend were playing it on the guitar and I was singing along very loudly. Did I ruin the song...? Does it matter...? I had completely forgotten about it until yesterday, now I can't stop listening to it. Torn is my song for Music Monday. Enjoy!

Disney songs on Music Monday.

We all love Disney films in our family and we all have our favourite. Mine is Tangled. It's different to the other Disney Films. There's no Prince but a boy does win the Princess' heart. There's lots of fun lines in there which surely most be meant for us adults watching! All the music is brilliant and actually I had to give you two songs this monday! Enjoy your Monday.

I know the song, I know the lyrics (at least I think I do) I have no idea who sings the song!

Okay this is actually a bit (or 'very' if you ask my soulmate) embarrassing. I love music but (and lets be honest here) more often than not, I have no idea who sings the song I'm listening to. The soulmate being a musican (he plays the drums, piano and guitar), a very clever one who knows everything (according to himself ) is not happy with that. Yesterday we were listening to the song Borderline, good tune from our youth and the soulmate asked me "Who sings this?" Uh... I felt the pressure because as I know the song very well, surely I should know who sings it. Wild guess.. "Kim Wilde" Uh... the shock and horror on his face clearly showed me I'm wrong and very wrong! It's Madonna of course. Today, Like a Prayer was on, the soulmate looked at me "surely you know who this is?" Ha... I actually do but let's tease him.... So I said "Kylie" Hilarious, you should have seen his face and especially when he realised I was teasing him.
This is our music corner at home where the 3 talents (no I'm not one of them) play....

Cool uncle!

When I first moved to London in 2002 and found my soulmate, he was playing in a band with his brother. Word of advice here, don't fall in love with the drummer if possible! I did and it's a lot of carrying around after each gig. Drums on the tube home late at night not the funniest! Anyway, it was pretty cool to have a boyfriend in a band! As time went on and the princess was born, my soulmate now a daddy as well, stopped playing in the band.  His brother carried on with writing his music, recording and playing gigs, now also an uncle and a very cool one! Cool uncle has just been to visit us this weekend and we heard some of his latest recordings. You can hear a couple of his older songs here.
