GUEST,Rich Songs our children sing. (24) RE: Songs our children sing. 07 Feb 08

My two eldest sons aged 4 and 2 sang 'You Are My Sunshine' to my five month old last week. One of the sweetest things I ever witnessed. They have picked it up from the 'Oh Brother, Where Art Thou' soundtrack which gets regular airplay and has some great songs for kids to get into.

My eldest also finishes the lines to 'Sweet Baby James' and 'Spancil Hill' as I sing them to him regularly at bedtime.

I will however, try to never be disparaging about whatever music they get into in life, and will encourage them to listen to as much music as possible from as many sources as possible. I love traditional music, and love to pass it on through song, but I also have other music that I was told was a phase which has already stayed with me for over 20 years, some of which is rap. Believe it or not, some early Public Enemy albums are not a million miles away from our more political folk artists in their outlook and messages.
