Our current favorite song...

Music Monday at Soccer Mom in Denial


Sara Bareilles' tune Love Song is our current family favorite. The kids are constantly walking around the house singing it. I often have to delay whatever urgent computer task I have so we can watch the actual music video several times. We've had deep conversations about why she is inside a music box, how the actor looks like their Uncle - if the Uncle had hair on his head - and if it is a real story.

My three-year-old will put on one of her costume gowns and plastic heeled shoes and bang away at our upright piano singing

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one


So I can only imagine the eruption my poor dad dealt with in the pizza shop last week.

"Mom! We heard Love Song at the pizza shop!" it was loudly reported to me when I walked into the house after working late.

"Did you start singing?" I asked.

"Yeah" he said with a grin.

Singing along? Please remember to both post the cute little button of the phonograph somewhere in your tale of tunes AND link back to me. Doesn't really count if you don't site the source.

These folks are making music:

Jenn in Holland (who gets extra points today for helping me track down a version of this song I liked since the official video cannot be inserted)

Luisa Perkins
Mariposa
Flower Child
Cablegirl
Jen in Michigan
Wholly Burble
Hilary (yes, she didn't actually post for Music Monday but Cablegirl asked that we visit her friend and think about the message in the posted music video. And anything Cablegirl wants, Cablegirl gets)

This is a fun song. I recently put it on a mix CD for my man.

I played, I played!

Mariposa said...

I first heard this song through my younger cousin...nice song!

Happy Music Monday! I'm playing along!

la la la! I am seeing her open up for James Blunt on Feb 12th! la la la!

And my favorite song on her album is Love On The Rocks, followed closely by Morningside. Fairytale also rocks my socks too.

Flower Child said...

I'm in! Reliving the 80's.

I gotta go now and buy that Sara Bareilles album

Morning. Got mine up. I also linked to a Music Monday entry for someone who doesn't usually play.

I love this song! I was just reading an article about her yesterday. Great choice!

And I'm playing, too! ;-) We're happy together on my blog today.

Hilary said...

Thanks for linking to me. It was a random coincidence. I was inspired. I am in med school and I had an exam today, so I am lucky if I get to post at all, much less on the right day.

Such a lovely, lovely, lovely tune. And anytime I hear about your kids spontaneous burst into song, it just makes me giggle. Your stories are so awesome!

Wholly Burble said...

It would be a treat to hear your houseful singing this--and thanks for introducing it to me.

Ah yes, I made it to post a Music Monday bit too.

never heard this song in Europe before.

Well, I live under a rock, but this was the first time I had heard this song. Very fun! So glad I popped on over today!
