(Dear Mr. Supercomputer and Mrs. Supercomputer are going on a trip to Colorado this week. Without Baby Supercomputer. However, in our absence, I've asked Baby Supercomputer to man the blog until we get back.
The first thing I did was ask her to put together a playlist of her favorite songs. Her words are below.)
This Summer, Daddy and I have gotten a lot of time together. And he seems particularly obsessed with filling every free moment with sound. So every morning he turns the iPod to shuffle and since there's like 2000 songs on there, I've heard pretty much every song ever made. I really appreciate it. Although some of his selections are a little off-base and, at times, inappropriate, I feel like it's broadening my musical horizons at an early age. And it sure beats that Baby Einstein crap. Yeah, we get it. London Bridges fell the hell down. Whoopdee doo. And there's only so many times you can spell B-I-N-G-O before you want to send him to the pound.
So here's my Summer of 2007 playlist. I'll link mp3s or videos when I can. Enjoy!
Belle and Sebastian - "Another Sunny Day"
This is the first band that I ever really responded to. Belle and Sebastian are kind of sing-songy. They are soft, although they use the work "fuck" a lot. You wouldn't think so on first listen. Regardless, I'm a B&S fan.
(mp3 - "Another Sunny Day")
Regina Spektor - "On the Radio"
I like singing the very last part where Regina croons "On the radio, uh-ohhh." Also, I love the Guns n' Roses reference. It kills me every time. Even though they were sooooo before my time.
(mp3 - "On the Radio")
Battles - "Atlas"
Dad has already delved into great detail about my enjoyment of this song. It's totally wack, but has some awesome beats. Truly outstanding video. Still kinda weird though.
Jack Johnson - "People Watching"
I flip out every time I hear this song. It's from Curious George! In fact, whenever I hear a Jack Johnson song, I recognize his voice from the movie. Any of ya'll out there with kids, this movie comes highly recommended from my dad.
Modest Mouse - "The World at Large" and "Float On"
This is another mesmerizing video. And the two songs go together so well. And dad totally rocks out on "Float On." Although, I hope he drops the air guitar thing before I hit High School.
Broken Social Scene - "7/4 Shoreline"
The first time I heard this song, dad and I were dancing like crazy by the end. Still though, if you think the air guitar thing is bad, that's nothing compared to air trombone.
(mp3 - "7/4 Shoreline")
Feist - "1 2 3 4"
Simply a great video. All the dancing and colorful outfits. Not to mention I get to show off my mad counting skillz. And it's certainly better than watching that Count from Sesame Street every damn morning.
"Dear Mr. Supercomputer" - Sufjan Stevens
It seems either cheesy or meta to include this song, but still, it begins resoundingly and is in some crazy 7/8 time or something like that. It's another good counting one too, because, after all, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, all computers go to heaven."
(mp3 - "Dear Mr. Supercomputer")
Hidden Track: Rilo Kiley - "Moneymaker"
I don't really care for this song, but everyone says I look like Jenny Lewis. You be the judge.
(mp3 - "Moneymaker")
Hope you all enjoyed my playlist!
