7 Day Song Challenge [Day 3]

Good Morning from Me, Myself, and my breakfast of home made brioche with morello cherry conserve. Dont be jealous.

Todays song in the 7 Day Song Challenge has to be a song that reminds me of someone, and there is no one on this earth that I love to think about more than my beautiful children.

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Snow (Hey Oh)

Back in summer of ’07 my eldest child Little X was just coming up to 6 months, and if he wasn’t attached to me (and by ‘me’ I mean my breast) then he was usually crying. In my desperation for a few hours rest I dug through my virtual music collection and came out brandishing ‘Stadium Arcadium’ by RHCP. During my pregnancy I had played lots of music to my bump – possibly in the hopes that he’s grow up to be a rockstar, what? – and from the increased kicking during ‘Stadium Arcadium’ it seemed to be a firm favourite.
So I popped it on repeat, and lord have mercy, Little X slept for a good 6 hours for the first time. Over the months (and years) the album became part of his (and Little P’s) nighttime routine (who needs Twinkle Little Star?), and one we put on to dance around the house, and to this day his little face still lights up in recognition when he hears this song.
