Nursery Rhymes

Over at John and Belle Have a Blog, proud mum Belle Waring notes her kid's predilection for rocking out to the Shins. Very cool I thought, for a mother to play music like that. Made me think of what my parents sang to me growing up. My memories of the songs sung are mostly older tunes -"Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?", "Walk Like a Man", "Wake Up Little Susie" - although I do remember hearing a lot of Barbra Streisand's "Woman in Love".

If you think these aren't the usual songs Singaporean parents sang to their kids in the 70s, you'd be right. At least judging by the looks some of my friends gave me when I tell them the songs of my youth. Don't ask me what hearing "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" did for my psyche.
