  1. Honestly, I am not sure how I found you through the web but I am currently smitten. I do have to agree with you on several of your rockin’ kids dance songs. I’m currently riding the Riptide and Bastile’s Pompeii.

    I found my rockin’ songs a different way though. I downloaded Pandora Radio on my iphone and select the Children’s Indie Radio Station they have. After a little guidance through like/dislike votes I have it fine tuned. It’s so good that I will listen to it whenever I want a happy pick me up, kids or no kids.

    1. Aw, thank you! :-)

      We’re just sitting around enjoying coffee and watching the kids be silly this morning, so I’m going to play Bastile’s Pompeii for the kids right now!

      I love your Pandora suggestion too. I’ve used Pandora, but I’m so impatient that I end up thumbs-downing my whole allotment right away, then I get stuck listening to junk I can’t skip and I just give up. I should give it another go though, thanks for the reminder!

    Kelly you are such a good writer! Honestly – how do you make it look so darn easy? This is the second post of yours I’ve read in one day and I am so impressed! Have to share this one too : )

  3. I love this post! I’m a big believer in good music for families too. My suggestion for you is an awesome song if you haven’t thought of it yet: Can’t Get Next To You by The Temptations – it’s an oldie but a goody! My boys love it! :)

  4. Hi! Thanks, this is great! Can’t wait to dance and listen with the kids. The Spotify link doesn’t seem to be working-at least for me. Takes me to some ad page or something, I’m not quite sure what. Could you reply with the link here so I can try again? Thank you ??

  5. Hello! Thanks for this reminder of the power of family dance parties.
    A couple of your links to the Spotify playlist just took me to ad pages. You may want to look into that.
    Thanks again and we’ll be dancing our after school snack calories away today!!
