Sing Along Saturday: Dad's Songs

I should have been prepared for the the song prompt today from Bookish Things and More!

Songs you jam to with your dad!

My dad and I have enjoyed many songs together over the years. Here's a few that come to mind right off the top of my head:

When this song was popular and new I remember my dad saying he loved the guitar in it. I agreed. And we bonded over Queen! I even got the 45 record for my 13th birthday I think it was... I'm sure he had something to do with it.

Also, during that same era, my dad would take us rollerskating often. There was a song that they played at the rink that we both fell in love with. It took us awhile to figure it out what it was and after the YouTube era and I found it there, I was in heaven!! I love this song so much and it always makes me think of my dad and how we "discovered" it together back in the day.

Finally, my dad would always play classical music at night as he read the paper and I was going to sleep. My favorite was when he put on Tchaikovsky, like this one:

Sorry it's so long, but if you want to skip to the "good part" check out the spots at 6;30 to 7:00 and 12:00 to 14:00 or so.. and the end of course, which is always exciting in Tchaikovsky! Ah, dang, just listen to the whole thing!!!

Well, I guess I'll stop there even though there's so much more I could share!

Happy Father's Day!!


  1. I like that you shared three choices :) I love Tchaikovsky so much :) And while I am familiar with Queen--and almost even went with that song--I was not familiar with Sky High. It is a very fun song!

  2. My dad always had classical music on so I love it! I love that your dad and you like Queen. I think Eddie Mercury is one of the most talented singers ever! I'd never heard Skyhigh and I liked it but I got a kick out of the band. The one with the poofy bangs had me dying with laughter!

  3. Awesome! That's really cool that he loves Queen and that you bonded over them. They're an awesome group. I love their songs. I hadn't heard the other song from that era. And, I love Tchaikovsky. :D

  4. Queen is awesome! My kids don't understand the amazingness of that band. My dad knows anytime we are together and Bohemian Raphsody comes on that I will start head banging when it picks up. Wayne's World moments are the best.
