Whenever we’re driving together (it doesn’t matter if we’re on an ‘emergency’ chocolate slab run or, a four-hour road trip) our family rotates the song selection responsibility.
This way, we all get to hear something we like. (And, most importantly: it means we don’t have to listen to ‘I Don’t Care’ by Ed Sheeran ft. Justin Bieber on repeat, which is what Crumb currently selects whenever his turn comes around).
At the moment, my favourite is ‘Get Back Up Again’ from the Trolls soundtrack. It puts me in such a great mood every single time, and makes me feel that I (like Poppy the troll) can take on anything.
I can’t resist clapping along and belting it out – and I’m thrilled that my family is right there with me through every spectacular second of the 2:46 minute song.
Here are some of Crumb (9) and Nugget’s (6) top picks…
(You guessed it) I Don’t Care, Ed Sheeran ft. Justin Bieber
Run Boy Run, Woodkid
Stressed Out, Twenty One Pilots
Every song on The Greatest Showman soundtrack
Sucker, Jonas Brothers
Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen
All things Mamma Mia (they love the soundtracks from both movies)
Blurry Face, Twenty One Pilots
Do You Want To Build A Snowman, Frozen (I take on the role of door knocker, while Crub and Nugget (respectively) command Elsa and Anna’s speaking roles.)
7 Years, Lukas Graham
The Trolls Soundtrack
Shallow, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper
Make Me Cry, Noah Cyrus ft. Labrinth (Nugget’s a big fan of the droplet sound effects.)
