2009 summer road trip music

We’re off on holiday. Yah! Which includes the pre-holiday ritual of choosing the music for the road trip. Each person in the Taylor family chooses their 2 favourite CD’s, on the understanding they show some sensitivity to the ears and tastes of other family members (No Radiohead for Dad :), no Hi 5 for kids). Always provokes good anticipation and interaction, saves some car-fights and is a good snapshot of the musicality of our family and the year gone. Anyhow, here’s the 2009 selection.

Flock, The best of the Muttonbirds
Fat Freddies Drop, Based on a true story
Moby, 18
Opshop, One day
Dave Dobbyn, Anotherland
Van Morrison, No guru, no method, no teacher
Karekare, Paddy Free
Salmonella Dub and NZSO, Feel the seasons change

Now, can anyone guess who chose what? Options are Mum; Kayli Anne = 8 year years old; Shannon = 11 years old; Dad ….

  1. Hi Steve,

    Hmmm. I’ll hazard a guess!

    Mum – Dave Dobbyn & Van Morrison
    Kayli Anne – Muttonbirds & Fat Freddies Drop
    Shannon – Moby & Opshop
    Dad – Paddy Free & Salmonella Dub/NZSO

    When I was a kid we always had the same two albums whenever we travelled anywhere – The Beatles Ballads and Boney M… I can still sing along to all those songs. Good times. 🙂

    Have a great holiday.

  2. Hmmm, this is hard! Gosh, you almost had a 100% kiwi collection there. Here’s my guess…

    Mum – Muttonbirds & Van Morrison
    Kayli Anne – Opshop & Fat Freddies Drop
    Shannon – Dave Dobbyn & Moby
    Dad – Salmonella Dub & Paddy Free

    I can remember the USA roadtrip we did – The Beach Boys and “Red Red Wine” by UB40 stand out. And a bit of ‘Petra’ thanks to my teenage sisters.

    Have a great and much deserved holiday!
