Chloe loves singing show tunes. Loves it. While she is drawing, she is usually singing a medley of songs from Fiddler on the Roof, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, West Side Story, Wicked, High School Musical, the Barbie movies, Jekyll and Hyde, or Spamalot. I'm not even kidding. Many of them she has learned from the CDs and movies we have here at home, but a bunch of them she hears my students singing during their lessons, so she expands her repertoire that way. I even heard her singing what I'm pretty sure was Seasons of Love from Rent the other day, and I have no idea where she heard that one!
The best thing about hearing Chloe sing these songs, is her lyrics. She usually doesn't know or understand the words very well (who does, right?) and so she just makes them up. Except, she's adamant that the words she sings are 100% correct, and if she hears anyone sing it the real right way she immediately puts them in their place.
So, I've been listening to the Wicked soundtrack an awful lot lately while driving around town. Usually, the girls just want to listen to Popular over and over and over and over again. I've been telling them sorry...we're listening to all the music now, because I don't know how much longer I can handle hearing Popular, much as I like it! Anyway, so yesterday, No One Mourns the Wicked must have been rattling around in Chloe's brain, because she was singing it all day.
But her way went like this: Every day a Weekend!
Sounds good to me!
