Smarter Health: New music I’m digging

Posted by   + Show Post

I listen to music a lot....as does my kiddo. Though she's only five (and three-quarters), Kiddo is becoming a bit of a music aficionado. Okay, okay, she loves Carly Rae Jepsen and "Call Me Maybe" is a popular choice, but she also loves discovering new favorites -- and plays them over and over and over again. So what is a mom to do? This mom makes sure she likes the new bands and their songs just as much as the kiddo...so here's what I've ben introducing my daughter to (and downloading onto my iPhone).

Imagine Dragons --  Cool alt-rock band that we jam to while getting ready for school. More rock than The Lumineers, less pop than Maroon 5, my favorite track we have found is "It's Time." Watch the video here on You Tube and check out their Facebook page.

The Mowgli's -- Again, another rockin' group with an edge, some buds from Southern California joined musical forces and started the band. I could totally listen to "Carry My Will" for at least three hours out of the day, straight. It just gets me motivated -- listen to it here and I'm sure they would love it if you follow them on Facebook too.

Pitch Perfect soundtrack -- Yup, the tunes from the 2012 movie. I liked the film, but I LOVE the music from it. Anna Kendrick's "Cups" song is pretty amazing, and Kiddo has taken to learning all of the words to the "Pool Mashup: Just The Way You Are/Just A Dream."  If you love Glee or just cool new versions of songs you have heard before, then this is a must for you. Check out clips here on iTunes.

What new tunes are you listening to these days?

Not really anything new..We bought our girls MP3 players, so my 16 year old has been downloading music to them..It's funny when the youngest 2 didn't have one, they bugged their sister's about using theirs. Now that they have one, it's been lucky to get 4 hours of use so far..But the silence on the car trip is going to be TOTALLY worth it..lol

I only listen to oldies. I was amazed at how few of the grammy nominees I had never heard of.
