What are your singing in the car songs?

Jan

In high school, my buddies and I (well really just Nora, Shelby, Maria, Gottshall, & Ashley) would obnoxiously sing in the car, no matter the song, windows down, and as loud as we could. And in the vein of being a good father, I’m trying to pass these values – never be embarrassed in public to sing and dance, never be embarrassed to not the know the words to a song, make sure you laugh at yourself as much as possible – onto the kids. So far, the two big ones have their favorites, but I’m trying to expand their repertoire.

Luka’s favorite is – Uptown Funk (Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars)

Amelia’s favorite is – All I want for Christmas is You (Mariah Carey)

And I added these two the list, but they’re not picking up just yet…

Walking in Memphis (Marc Cohn)

The Shoop Shoop Song (Cher)

What’s your sing out loud in the car song?

    Ugh. I just had middle school nightmares.

    • Sure, but what’s your car song?

        Oh all the ones I like to make fun of and all the others. All the non-Turkish stuff we heard in the car on road trips. Walking in Memphis. Billy Joel’s The Longest Time. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. First We Take Manhattan. Meat Loaf.

        Ooh, Diamonds and Rust.
