Only if it's Lovecats

As long as it's not "killing an Arab" hmm (I once got in trouble for playing that where the Saudi exchange students could hear it, and it wasn't even my tape, I just turned it over at the end! - Showing my age there, and still rankled 25 years later!)
DS4 has a "Friday I'm in Love" tshirt somewhere, and I taught him to sing it when he wanted to know what it said grin

Or 'Boys Don't Cry'. What are you choosing? [digs out old albums for the evening]

mistressploppy Fri 07-Oct-11 19:57:27

It's "Why can't I be you?"

I just can't bear wall-to-wall nursery favourites and the fucking theme tune to the Tweenies

sunnysunnyshine Fri 07-Oct-11 20:02:32

Great choice!

I suppose The Smiths is a bridge too far?

I was just going to say "if you have the Cure you must have the Smiths as well."

"Friday I'm in Love" is my happy song. Play that. As for Smiths, well, er. Not the one about the ten ton truck. But I do love them and children should be taught to love proper music.

I was going to say only if it's Stray Cats or Killing an Arab, but shock at poor pombear!

Not a good turn of events grin

belindarose Fri 07-Oct-11 20:15:45

I'm enjoying my soundtrack for the evening. Thank you very much, OP!

barbie007 Fri 07-Oct-11 20:16:41

Love The Cure! Good choice

funnypeculiar Fri 07-Oct-11 20:16:54

Course. Dd had this on a loop at her third...

Vallhala Fri 07-Oct-11 20:18:48

Lovecats, yes. Friday I'm In Love, yes. Anything else, no.

And if you play The Smiths I might have to slap you.


How about a nice bit of The Jam, The Beat, or even some poppy Duran Duran, Depeche Mode or, dare I suggest it, some Spands?

I've always admired you Val.

I feel let down, and a bit dirty sad

AgentZigzag Fri 07-Oct-11 20:23:25

Actually, I quite like the feeling a bit dirty confused but also smile


mistressploppy Fri 07-Oct-11 20:23:33

Ok, so I already have:

Kirsty MacColl
Del Amitri
The Jam
Violent Femmes
The Specials

Georgimama Fri 07-Oct-11 20:24:23

For a laugh add some Wham. Toddlers love the Wham rap for one thing.

Georgimama Fri 07-Oct-11 20:24:49

Which Specials? Not Ghost Town, surely?

mistressploppy Fri 07-Oct-11 20:25:31

Monkey Man. But I could have put loads of 'em on

SardineQueen Fri 07-Oct-11 20:29:04

Specials - Friday night saturday morning? The other parents will be well impressed grin

"...piss stains on my shoes"


fannybaws Fri 07-Oct-11 20:35:32

DH was in charge of organising music for a third birthday party for DS recently, which meant they raved to leftfield and Fat Boy Slim.
They loved it grin
Most of the grown ups loved it too.

NestaFiesta Fri 07-Oct-11 20:36:12

Mistressploppy, with that playlist, please tell me the time and venue so I can come and throw some shapes in an embarrassing Mum like way.

Iggly Fri 07-Oct-11 20:36:24

A play list for a 2 year olds birthday party?! hmm grin

SardineQueen Fri 07-Oct-11 20:36:26

I'm whistling it while I tidy the kitchen...

Out of bed at 8am <warbles>
Out my head by half past ten <bops cheerfully>

Mind you the piss bit is apt for toddlers. Mine actually did have piss stains on her shoes earlier <proud>
