james loves michaeljackson

Pretty shortly after James was born, I started singing and dancing with him to one of my favorite songs, Rock With You, by Michael Jackson.  Then he discovered the song on my iPod and wanted to listen to it all.the.time.  If you come over to our house sometime, you’ll hear repeated requests for “michealjackson” like it’s all one word.  And then when you play michaeljackson (for the 50th time), he’ll immediately say, “wannahearagain.” 
The first video doesn’t really have audio, it just shows James listening to michaeljackson on the iPod while trying to figure out how to eat (a Moon Pop) at the same time.  Tricky.
That was several months ago, now I’ve caught him singing the words along with the song.  Around :42 seconds you can hear him sing his favorite part- “Feel the beat, and we can ride the boogie! Share that beat of loooooove!”

Let's be friends!

But he also likes typical nursery rhymes like, “The Wheels on the Bus” and has even started playing it on the guitar!  🙂 I like how he announces, “I’m gonna sing!” 

Have a great day!

    Too cute! At least Michael Jackson is easier for you to listen to than the Wiggles. It's funny how kids love the same song over and over again.

    Yes! My mom said she used to listen to Michael Jackson when she was pregnant with me. After I was born (in 1983, wow!), if I wouldn't stop crying, she'd put on some Michael Jackson records and start dancing with me, and I'd instantly stop crying.

    I remember dancing around my living room to Thriller. NON. STOP.

    Rock With You is one of my most favorite MJ songs.

    Love the second one. I like how his face lights up when he hears the music. Boy,he really comes on strong when he gets to his favorite part; it made me laugh. So, so cute.
