Haven't I heard that before?

It wasn't the exact same song, not even the same song, period. But when I listened to my daughter's new CD, I had that nostalgic twinge we sometimes get when we hear a song from our past. This sound, however, was from a new artist, Ellie Goulding.

But, boy, did she remind me of Edie Brickell and New Bohemians... a group who had their big hit, "What I Am" in 1988.... and I l.o.v.e.d their sound.

I would listen to the tracks on that cassette tape over and over again. Singing along with Edie, windows of my VW Beetle rolled down. I was Edie Brickell and her New Bohemians.

And now, today, my daughter and I have something extra in common. At a time when we're not so keen on the same music... raps are all over her playlist, yet are only sporadically found on mine... we share a new favorite, Ellie Goulding. And I can't help but compare her to Edie. My daughter says they're similar, but she likes Ellie better. I'm just glad she's listening to something I like at the moment. We're music twins. Sort of.

Looks like you had an excellent Mother's Day the photos!

I haven't heard of Ellie or Edie but what we did have in common was singing in our VW Beetles with the windows rolled down!!

Enjoyed listening to both songs.
