Money for Nothin – Dire Straits You have no idea how many times I made my parents get the tape because we’d worn it out. I think they played it over and over again to hear me say the word “again!” as a baby. (I couldn’t find the video available anywhere!)
Dream On – Aerosmith Because nothing says kids’ music like my mom, brother and I pretending to snort coke like Steven Tyler on a road trip
I Can’t Drive 55 – Sammy Hagar Big shout out to my dad!
Water Cycle Boogie – Banana Slug String Band (though Butt’s Up was listened to far more, but this one was around…)
Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting – Elton John Where else would my love for dancing on coffee tables come from?
Live to Tell - Madonna Even though I was in high school when the Immaculate Collection came out, I know you were dancing while I was in Starbucks to this, DAD…
You’re My Best Friend – Queen “You’re my best thing…”
Gangsta’s Paradise – Coolio Probably the first song that I listened to that wasn’t one my parents introduced to me. Ziggy knows every single word and can do the whole thing karaoke style.
Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite – The Beatles This song is forever linked to Disney;and’s Haunted Mansion for me.
Until it Sleeps – Metallica And here my brother proved he was cooler than me. This video scared me when I first saw it. My brother thought, “cool, snakes!” And then my love for metal arose from his playing of this over and over again
