RTW: Fabulous Summer Soundtrack
Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question to write about on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This week's topic:
What music has been your summer soundtrack?
Since I became a mom nine years ago, my summer soundtracks have changed. We've moved on from the Wiggles and Sesame Street, They Might Be Giants and the Laurie Berkner Band to Radio Disney and the Phineas and Ferb soundtrack. And while my kids really dig the latest Coldplay album and other... umm, grown up music, this summer it's all High School Musical, much to my son's dismay. We've got HSM2 in the truck and Birdy listens to HSM3 every night while she falls asleep.
Oh, and did I mention that she wants to watch the movies ALL THE TIME?
I have to admit, they've really grown on me. I was skeptical at first - this was one of those Disney trends that I tried to avoid. But as cheesy as the movies are, they tell good stories about good people. The songs are catchy and memorable. And let's face it, who couldn't use a little extra Fabulous?
She wants fabulous, that is her simple request
All things fabulous, bigger and better and best
She needs something inspiring to help her get along
She needs a little fabulous is that so wrong?
Fabulous pool, fabulous splash, fabulous parties, even fabulous trash!
Fabulous fashion, fabulous bling, She’s got to have fabulous ev’rything!
Hope you're all having a fabulous summer! What songs are on your summer soundtrack this year?
