Tunesday :: Dad Edition

I know this is coming a little late, but I wanted to give a shout out to my dad. Figured I would do it in the form of Tunesday, because he is the one that got me started on music in the first place. He has a wide range of music when it comes to stuff he enjoys and he has passed his love for music on down to me and I appreciate it.  Along with everything else he has passed on to me, like my competitiveness, my stubbornness, my athleticism, my humor, and my good looks ;)

Oh and style, obvs. Nice hat, Dad.

OH AND! I figured out how to upload a playlist right to my page. Go me! Thinking this might stick around and get rid of the youtube links, unless you all hate the idea of the youtube links going away. They are still here this week though.

Any time the following three songs come on the radio we have to call each other. It's our thing.
Not sure why, other than the fact that Fall Out Boy is legit, but my dad LOVES this song.
Don't read into the lyrics too much.  We don't have a weird father / daughter relationship. We just both really enjoy this song.
This is one of my all time favorite songs. So thanks for introducing it to me dad, even if I was probably too young to understand it at the time I was singing the lyrics.
'I put my daughter on my knee, and she says
"Daddy what's wrong?"
She whispers in my ear so sweet
You know what she says? She says
"Daddy you're a fool to cry"'
I'm Rick James, Bitch. Growing up my dad would watch me during the day while my mom was working.  Don't tell her my dad used to let me dance all over the living room to this song. It was my jam.
My love for Prince runs deep, like wayyyyy deep and my dad is the reason why! PS. this song is very hard to find on the internet.
First concert he ever took me too. Granted I was like 2 and don't really remember it, but still!
Over the past few years my dad has randomly gotten into the country music. Which is quite odd, seeings how he NEVER listened to it when I was young. Dr. Dre sure?! Rick James! Yes please, but country, this is new. It must be his old age ;) Either way I love this song, even if it is country.
Any time we would go on road trips, this song would make an appearance. Our whole family would belt it and then we kids would make my dad replay it at least 3 more times.
Speaking of road trips. This was another family road trip song. Obviously.
Listened to A LOT of Tom Petty growing up and I didn't hate it.
I am thankful that my dad made me appreciate classic music like Van Morrison, this is the good stuff guys. I hope music like this never goes away.
This song is still rocking in 2013.  That is some longevity, people.

Love you Dad!!!

<3 BB

Loving this playlist. I can't hear Super Freak without thinking of Little Miss Sunshine, though, which cracks me up!

I owe my sweet taste in music to my dad too! I grew up on a great mix of butt rock, classic rock and a smattering of country now and then. What's been really fun is watching my boyfriend be really impressed by my knowledge of classic rock (which he considers himself an aficionado of). The other night he made a comment about Creedence Clearwater and I said, "you mean CCR?" He stopped dead in his tracks, looked at me and said, "I love you baby."
He's so easy to win over ;)

Sugar we're goin' down swingin'! I'll be your #1 with a mullet! :)

Beautiful playlist and I love the spotify addition - the songs keep playing and I don't have to play each video!

Kristen said...

This might be my favorite playlist you've posted yet! YAY for dad's edition :)

Nini Kat said...

Aww thats a pretty crunk play list :P My dad likes listening to shania twain which is really weird because he's super Mexican. lol

This is fantastic and I had no idea you could do spotify playlists! Sweet! My dad and I were listening to random songs together over the weekend but ours were more old school. He actually owned a disco in the 70s so I know all those lovely songs. That is what we were listening to. I like your list better. :)

shoot, doesn't everyone know abuot CCR?! :) or are we just too cool for school because of our dads?

Rachel Sedaker said...

Cool list! My dad instilled in me a solid love of the Beatles and a mild disdain for copycats. Oh, and a general aversion to auto-tune. It's definitely a parent's job to make sure the kid has good taste in music.

Sounds like you and your dad have a great relationship! There are a few 90's songs that make me have flashbacks of all the neat things my dad and I did together when I was little--from long motorcycle rides to pool days! Great post :)

Staci said...

Haha I will now forever think of you as Abigail Breslin in Little Miss Sunshine breakin it down to Superfreak!

Myranda said...
