Emily's music of choice

On two seperate car rides yesterday, Emily was quiet as I played "Disintegration." I think she likes The Cure.

The same thing happened when I played some Marilyn Manson (yes, what a horrible parent I am) last week. My plan was simply to drown out her screaming, but when the music started, she quit (I'm imagining Ultimate Josh's evil chuckle of glee).

Not any old music will calm her down though. She screamed through Dido and Angie Aparo, but she listened contently to No Doubt and the "50 First Dates" soundtrack. The other day, we had the radio on as she was screaming — she got quiet the moment a Goo Goo Dolls song started playing and resumed her screams the moment it ended.

I'm anxious to see what happens when I play "The Head on the Door" for her. She may like The Cure, but the song "The Baby Screams" could set her off.
