After years of not listening to only my own music… I recently started listening to a local pop radio station. I tuned in over the Christmas season because they exclusively played christmas carols. And I never really stopped.
I keep listening to the station partly because I’m bored with listening to what’s on my iPhone.
But mostly I started listening to the radio station because I have been feeling like I should know what kind of music is popular right now. Because O is in elementary school and I’d like to be relevant enough to know what he and his friends are listening to.
Until recently, I didn’t think Owen really even LIKED music. He never asked to listen to anything in the car, he never sang to any of the songs we liked, he never seemed to really be listening to the music Jeff and I play.
Until this song came on the radio when O and I were on our way to the store. And all of a sudden, I heard a voice from the backseat.
This is going to be the best day of my life… my li-i-i-i-i-ii-ife!
And my heart grew about 6 sizes to hear him singing.
Turns out, his favorite songs are Katy Perry’s “Roar,” American Authors “Best Day of My Life,” and Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass.” And with each one of these songs, he sings along with the radio.
And it makes my heart happy.
