Soccer Dad Gets Tagged

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.

  1. Good job Dad! :) I remember the “Disney Days” well, but mine were back when they weren’t putting very cool songs in their movies. I had to listen to stuff from Little Mermaid and Pocahontas, mostly.

    Project Playlist looks like fun. Have you tried Pandora yet?
    (Not sure how to make a link in a comment but it’s pandora.com).

  2. I hadn’t seen Pandora before looks pretty cool. I see it works with the SqueezeBox – man I’d love to have a couple of those around the house playing music off my server. Just need to win that lottery first! :)

    Ironically, I have a ton of music ripped to MP3 files that are on my server and love listening to music, but I find myself always working on my laptop with the sound muted because a baby was asleep or I was in an office. Earphones have always bugged me (the buds always seem to hurt after a bit – though how much you want to bet iPod earphones would feel heavenly? :) ) so there you go. Definitely time to start organizing the 100GB of music files i’ve got into some order and listen to them again.

  4. Heh – itching would be preferable. Most bud earphones hit a certain spot in my ear that just aches after a while. Even Walkman headphones have from long ago. Sigh.

    Hmmm maybe I can use this as an excuse to get an iPod :)

  5. 1st Time here. great blog. I was never into soccer, but the last 2 world cups have peeked my interest. I also went to Italy just after they won and needless to say, they were pretty geeked up about it. And I have vowed to hit a Rapids game this year.

    As for your music. All-star is a forever Shrek song, with is cool. The rest aren’t grabbing me. But to each his own, right?

  6. My 9 year old suggests “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns n Roses for pre-game warmup music. :p
