Huzzah! New question in the inbox! This one comes from my friend Alex:
So, what music will Kung Pao be rocking to in a few weeks? My two boys currently like Barton Hollow. The 9 month old laughs every time we play it.
In case you haven’t heard it, here’s the youtube music video:
THAT is a really good question. Hmm. One I hadn’t even thought about, actually.
Turns out, I gave up on music about three years ago when I got married. It wasn’t a conscious decision… I never said to myself, “Music? Kid stuff! I’m gonna eat donuts instead!”
But that’s pretty much what happened. I pretty much just gave up on music.
These days, I pretty much just listen to Podcasts.
So here’s my plan. I’m gonna let Kung Pao take a few days to get settled in to her new surroundings after we bring her home, then I’ll set her up with her very own ipod mini loaded with all sorts of great podcasts:
- podcasts about storytelling
- podcasts about web hosting
- podcasts about mormon culture
- podcasts about WordPress
- podcasts about urban planning
After all, the earlier she learns this stuff the better.
The only thing she’s missing is podcasts about bikes, but that’s just because there aren’t any good ones out there. I’ve tried them all, they’re all lousy.
But let’s watch that video you linked to:
Ok, nice. The Civil Wars, huh? Ok, I’ll give it a shot. If she starts to get bored with the WordPress podcasts, I’ll throw some The Civil Wars on and see what happens. I thought babies were supposed to like clown music or something. Is that not true anymore?
Maybe someone out there can give me some pointers: Parents, what kind of music are you playing for your babies?
Any More Questions?
