Heard it from a friend

We were all in the car this weekend and there were several times when I was floored at the songs the boys could sing along to.

True by Spandeu Ballet wasn't too much of a surprise. A song by Daughtry was a bit of a shock but I figured they were probably hearing it on the radio at camp.

But when this song came on - and they sang nearly every lyric, with terrific phrasing and feeling - I nearly fell out of the car.


Because really, 8-year-old boys can sing the following with such authority -

Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin' around
They say you got a boyfriend
You're out late every weekend
They're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down

Never thought I would hear REO Speedwagon's Take it on the Run sung so well by third graders.

Music Monday at Soccer Mom in Denial

Any song sung by little kids that makes you (happily) smile?

Sorry for the lack of Linky Love options. Just put a link to your post in the comments and I'll make a nice little list.

HAHAHAHA! That's so awesome. My kids can sing every word of True also because, of course, I have it on vinyl and yes, my kids know how to work the record player! haha.

That old Moby song - "I'm Gonna Praise You Like I Do" got translated to "I'm Gonna Phrase You Like a Shoe" when C was 4. He sung it constantly. It's still my favorite.

I love this song!

Julia's big into Pat Benatar. I love to hear her sing "Love is a Battlefield."
