why deny the obvious child [May. 19th, 2003|08:09 am]

[music |"the obvious child" - paul simon]

and the obvious is that i am not getting enough sleep. and this is the time when i really need to do so. i am crying when i hear this song. i probably have put the lyrics up before, so i will just link to them now. but for some reason, it hits me today. all the car bombs. all the peace talks that go asunder. my kid's tearful return to school - she is doing a whole lot better but she is crying as the car pulls away - she doesn't want to go. hopefully her dad will get her a donut in the cafeteria and take a little extra time and TLC to get her back into the swing of things.

it's all right. and i will now put on "the obvious child," also by paul simon, which makes me smile. time to listen to happier stuff, i guess.

baby mix [May. 19th, 2003|08:43 am]

which also reminds me...

i want to make a baby mix on CD that i can tolerate. first CD should be quiet songs that julian can snooze to (but that mom and dad can tolerate without wanting to vomit.) some candidates at the moment:

"beautiful boy" - john lennon (although this one also makes me cry when i think of lennon singing about how he can hardly wait to see sean come of age)

"imagine" - john lennon

"mary had a little lamb" - paul mccartney

"love's in need of love today" - stevie wonder

"pink moon" - nick drake

"sweet jane" - cowboy junkies' version

"weather with you" - crowded house

"can't find my way home" - blind faith

any other bright ideas? i don't want to replicate the tape (may it rest in pieces) i made for BC when she was born. i won't even mention too many of those songs so that anyone out there who wasn't tortured listening to it can give me some fresh, mellow ideas for babyland zzzz music. all genres welcome (although i don't forsee too many rap/chem candidates out there, to be honest.)
