Road Trip Entertainment — Our Music and Movies

I just finished a road trip with my five children.  I know no one asked, but I thought I’d share what we listened to and watched on the ten hour drive home.

1. Rachmaninov

Piano Concerto No. 2

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

2. Prokofiev 

Piano Concertos 1 & 3

3.   “The Foundation” by The Zac Brown Band

Because you know I like my chicken fried . . .

4.  Soundtrack to West Side Story

Can’t believe I almost forgot this one!

5.  The Radio — remember that?  

6.  Adam Sandler’s “The WaterBoy” 

“Momma said, ma ma ma  momma said . . . “

7.   Les Choristes — A beautiful French language Film about a music teacher for troubled boys in  1940’s France.

8.    Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo — Comedic Japanese (manga) Anime.

(I don’t really understand Bobobo, but there was lots of discussion about nose hair.)

For the most part, each of the choices were approved and enjoyed by all of  the tween and teen kids

. . . and myself.

Just Me With . . . an interesting collection . . . of children.

  1. Rachmaninov–heard of him. Oh, yeah…lol..the radio. I thought that was a movie or something other than THE radio.

  2. Wow — you’re way more cultured than we are. It’s basically Adele and if I’m lucky some Rolling Stones I can slip in.

    1. We like Adele, too. Sometimes she can be a little depressing though so we listen to her on shorter runs in the car. We have a range — that includes The WaterBoy and Bobobo so it might be more eclectic than cultured . . haha.

  3. That is definitly some collection of music, love it! We have a broad range as well, but not that cultured…gotta get moving on that!

    1. It’s the broad range that I like. Plus we like to sing along. It seems like listening to music and not just watching movies passes the time more quickly. And it’s good to find things that can just play without skipping tracks, then — poof- suddenly an hour has gone by (and less fighting and discussions over what comes next). So many people think teens only like certain things, or entertainment created for the “kid” “tween” or “teen” market. It’s not true, they’ll like other things as well (or instead) if exposed to them.

  4. “I feel pretty, oh so pretty….”—-Ooops. Sorry, but you put it in my head now.

    1. And you won’t be able to get it out for 24 hours. Don’t ask me how I know. Oh wait, you know how I know.
