My friend Evette does a family history journal entry every week on her blog. I usually don't participate for two reasons, #1 time, #2 I'm not entirely sure I want my children or anyone else for that matter, reading my thoughts about my childhood. But, this week, she chose a more current topic. Simple Pleasures. I can write about that!

There are many simple things that make me happy, but today, I'll share just one. Music. I love to turn it up loud enough that I can't really hear myself sing. Yep. That loud. (In my previous life, I'm fairly certain, I was a rock star) I love most types of music, but I'm not a fan of cheese- not the product made from milk. I like that. The kind of cheese I'm referring to is cheesy music. (cheesy top 40, not my fave) Oh, and I LOATHE music that feels the need to refer to women as "Shorty"- what does that mean anyway?

I do, however; love Muse. Wait. I LOVE Muse. I love 30 seconds to Mars and Coldplay. The Who, Queen and Boston. Regina Spektor, The Shins, Brandy Carlile, Sarah McLachlan and Josh Groban. And the list goes on and on! I love music with violin and piano. I'm not a horns or wind instrument kind of gal. I don't really like Jazz. (dear husband, please don't hit me) But, anyway, in my opinion, one of THE greatest inventions was the mp3 player. Whether you have it plugged into your stereo for the whole family to hear, or you have your head phones in, it's just awesome! No task is quite as daunting with music piped in. I love cleaning the house with it, or mowing the lawn with it, or cooking with it. It just makes everything better!

Without further ado, today's song is Music by Madonna.

I love music too! I agree it is a simple pleasure!

I love Music to but since I have had children I am really out of the loop and can't seem to remember who sings what and what the name of the song is.

indulge yourself, Brandi... this is a GREAT way to pass the time! I really am curious about your childhood, though... you make comments all the time. We probably have SO MUCH in common as far as our childhood goes! Good or bad, it's where we came from and what made us who we are today! :)
