MT Music Exchange: Songs for Our Children (by Sister Q)

It occurs to me that it’s been about a year since we did our CD exchange, and personally I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the music of my childhood. So I thought it would be kind of neat to see what songs we all associate with childhood–ours or our kids’.

Unlike previous exchanges, I propose that this time we just post track lists of hypothetical CDs. You can volunteer to press an actual CD for people who express interest if you want, but don’t feel obliged (and if you do, feel free to limit it to the first 3 people or whatever).

Personally, I’m going to post two lists: one list of lullabies/songs my mother used to sing me to sleep and that I plan to sing to my kids, and one of the upbeat, frequently noisy, road trip, running-around-the-house sort of songs that I also plan to subject my kids (and Expat) to.

Obviously there’s less urgency for a deadline without physical CDs, but let’s say we’ll try to post our lists by the end of May, and anyone who wants a CD should ask for it by mid-June. Sound good? Of course, people can always come later and add on! But those can be tentative dates for the initial exchange.
