You might have read some of my previous posts on our mega home renovation project. Its been a stressful couple of months (ahem years!) however we are thankfully getting there now. A family friend having done similar said to me her advice would be – install the latest gadgets that your budget can afford as smart living is the future and you don’t want to have to start retro fitting gadgets in years to come. Armed with this advice and my husbands love for all things techie one of his big requests was for the house to fitted with Panasonic Multi Room Speakers.
I was in two minds about this as I thought it might be a bit excessive. How wrong was I?! I (and the kids) absolutely love listening to music as we potter around the house. They especially love being in the bath with the music blaring! How are the teenager years going to be? I dread to think. Its funny how even from such a young age they have definite favourite songs. The oldest loves Nathan Carter signing Wagon Wheel while the youngest loves the Gummy Bear song!
This got me thinking and I reached to my fellow bloggers to see what songs their kids liked to listen to.
- Andrew from Mad Dad Skillz – his daughter loves Loreley by Blackmore Night. I have never heard of it, I must check it out.
- Pete from Household Money Saving his five year old loves a song which I totally concur – Once I was Seven Years old. Beautiful song, my own five year also enjoys listening to this one.
- Georgina from Gee Gardner has a heavy metal fan who falls asleep listening to Slipknot, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden! Brilliant!
- Jen from Just Average Jen – her son loves classical music. My own kids love the calm tones of classical music. I often put it on low when they are going to sleep to help them relax. There is something intrinsically relaxing about classical music.
I read an article about a year ago which mentioned a song called Weightless which reportedly helps to reduce anxiety by up to 65% and helps you sleep better as a result. Interestingly the song was actually constructed especially to do just that with the help of sound therapists. It is no surprise that is is the top played song in our house. We have it on every evening going to bed for the boys. I can honestly say hand on heart it really does relax them for bed.
So what are your little ones favourites songs? I’d love to hear in the comments below.
