So Lisa over at LDSM, Soccer Mom decided to tag me for music I’ve been listening to lately. Let’s just say Soccer Dad isn’t the most musically inclined person to begin with, but with four kids, most of the songs I hear these days come off of DVDs with cute little animated characters on them. (heavy) Sigh… So lets see how badly I can embarrass myself here.


  1. "All Star" by Smash Mouth – Why yes, we have watched Shrek a gazillion times and yes, our 2 year old can sing this song by heart, complete with the ‘shape of an L on her forehead’ in 3D live action!
  2. "Life is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane, performed by Rascal Flatts – Yup, the Cars DVD has been played many many times in our household too. The Daytona 500 was a huge event in our household this year as ALL the kids were jammed around the TV watching the entire race. The youngest couldn’t figure out why the cars weren’t talking.
  3. "My Front Porch Looking In" by Lonestar – Another favorite of the kids, yet with no Disney/Dreamworks movie tie in!
  4. "If You’re Going Through Hell" by Rodney Atkins – Nothing like a catchy tune to get you through those nasty days. The kids just sing it because they can say a pseudo cuss word without getting in trouble.
  5. "My Maria" by Brooks & Dunn – One of my favorites. Dunno why.
  6. "What’s Up!" by 4 Non Blondes – Extended Dance Mix Version (DJ Miko) – Don’t Ask. But if you ever do the music at practice bit, great long song with a good beat. Kids loved it.
  7. I fail my first tagging. I just can’t come up with a seventh – I listen to music so rarely these days. Heck when I had Sirius, I only listened to the comedy channel and the news. I still listen to the broadcast radio – but it’s 55 minutes of ads with a couple minutes of songs.


So there you go. Now you know Soccer Dad has no taste in music, rarely listens to it unless the kids are (usually via a movie), and is horrible about placing track titles and artists with music I actually recognize. Must be a genetic defect of some sort. :)

Hmmm, who shall be the next victims? Doubt I can come up with seven of those either, but… Let’s tag Josh, D and Oscar (two for one!), human, and Plain Jane Mom. Hey – I got to five!

I’m such a blog tag failure!

UPDATE: Lets give Project Playlist a try. Pretty cool.
