Tunes and Car Rides

Noah is obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba. Strangely enough, it's one of the shows I can tolerate (don't get me started on that purple dinosaur, we are not friends).

For his birthday Noah received the Yo Gabba Gabba cd. Every morning we listen to a few tunes. It's broken up by a character song, then a real artist. So, it's not all annoying songs. However, after listening it to every day since February I was so ready for a change.

Luckily volume 2 was just released. Phew! The day it was released I downloaded it off ITunes and we began listening to it every morning. I know he sings along (or tries) to the character songs, but I had no idea he was so attentive to the non character ones since he usually hysterically screams for me to skip it.

Earlier this week I was watching one of my all time favorite movies ever, Sixteen Candles (Jake Ryan, swoooon!). I've never noticed the song playing in one of the scenes (it's the scene when she is filling out the note). Anyway, all of a sudden Noah gets the most alert look on his face.

"MAMA...Yo Gabba Gabba...CAR, we listen to this in the car!" he screamed. At first I didn't get it and just did my normal mom nod to him and smiled. I really had no idea what he was talking about.

All of a sudden, it hit me! The Ting Ting's did a remake to this song. GAH! I couldn't believe Noah realized this before me. We may have listened to this particular song in the car many times over the past few weeks. I can't get over how attentive he is.

It's amazing how things come full circle in the most bizarre ways. My obsession with Sixteen Candles is now related to Yo Gabba Gabba. Go figure! DJ Lance Rock would say "That's Awesome!".
