Pickle has become positively obsessed with the first track on the "Juno" soundtrack, "All I Want Is You," by Barry Louis Polisar. The moment he hears the opening stanzas, he stops whatever he is doing, jumps to his feet, and starts gleefully running around the living room in frenetic circles, urging us to join in. As soon as the song is just beginning to draw to a close, he races to the stereo pointing and grunting (he knows how to make his desires known!). Tonight we must have listened to this song about 10 times.
It's a very catchy tune, I must admit (and movie)...and what sweet lyrics! He could do far worse as far as songs that run through your head on constant repeating tracks...my favorite stanza is "If you were a castle, I'd be your moat, and if you were the ocean, I'd learn to float!"
My children also overheard me saying to a friend that Track #8 ("Loose Lips" by Kimya Dawson) has some choice language, and they either sing along with it (Chris--who memorized the lyrics when the younger kids weren't around) or turn it off (Kieran).
Here are the full lyrics of "All I Want Is You":
All I'd want is you to be my sweet honey bee.
And here are the R-rated lyrics from "Loose Lips" (which is actually a great song...)
