Jordan loves Gangnam Style. If you've heard the song, you can understand why it was so crucial for me to get him into something else.
After a lot of coaxing from Jordan for me to play it, I finally gave up and bought it on iTunes for $1.99
Apparently, this is when he no longer cared. I made a playlist from iCloud (did you know it can pull all the music you've EVER purchased on iTunes?!) on our iPad with these few songs:
Young Folks - Peter, Bjorn and Paul
Impossible - Shout Out Louds (probably one of my all time favorite bands)
Kids - MGMT
Young Blood - The Naked and Famous
Naive - The Kooks
DANCE - Justice
PSY - Gangnam Style
Guess what song Mom can skip over without him even caring? Of course the one she bought for $1.99. He'll jam to any of the other songs. It only took $1.99 to get him there.
It's like when you bought him the Cars toy from Costco for $25.99 that he really loved at his buddy Finn's house... but once you got it for him, he could care less at home. Things are always cooler at other people's homes. Songs are always cooler when you don't own them.
Mom is learning.
