Dancing at Cross The Pond

Each night as I make dinner, I turn on music so we can dance in the kitchen. I've been doing it ever since we moved to London as a way of keeping the kids engaged and spending time with them while I prepare our tea. They love it.

So, it was an easy decision when I was asked if I'd like a copy of Pop Party 10. I thought, "Great, music for the kids to dance during meal prep!" I had NO idea.

The CD arrived and I popped it in. I thought it was going to be kiddie music but it was MY music! Psy's Gangnam Style was the first track on the CD and the kids went crazy dancing. The best part was, I popped in the DVD too and the first track: Psy again! Well, let's suffice it to say the kids and I are masters at the Gangnam Style dance. It's hilarious! They love that DVD (the toilet scene brings a huge round of giggles!).

The album is packed full of chart-topping smashes from the biggest names in pop from Justin Beiber (even though I am NOT a fan), Cheryl Cole, JLS to Katy Perry and to name but a few. The album features a bonus DVD packed full of great music videos which budding pop stars can dance along to. The album also includes lyric cards which has seriously helped me as I am lyrically challenged (in so many ways!)

A friend was over with her kids and she loved it so much she wanted to borrow the CD to burn. I told her to buy it! Aren't I a stinker?

The funny thing is, we dance anyway, and the kids were seriously tired of the same old tracks on my iPod. This has injected a whole new bunch of songs for us to boogie down to. The truth - I love it the most. It's already downloaded onto my iPod so I can take it with me! And no, I don't dance in the streets, but I'm seriously tempted to!

  1. Isn't music great for kids? Always puts them in a good mood. I remember when my teens were little and there were long winter evenings to fill before bath time. I would put on "Smooth" by Santana, we had blow up electric guitars and sunglasses. We would rock it out for ages!!


Go ahead, make my day!
