Makes My Monday: The Classical Music Fan

I have the twins' ipods on my iTunes account. It was just easier when we set it up to have all of  the transactions go through a single account. Also, I have the largest collection of music, so it's easiest to just slide things onto their hardware.

About a year ago, my son asked me to download some trumpet pieces, since he plays the trumpet. He's always liked classical music (it gets played a lot in our house) so I gave him dozens of different types of pieces.

Yesterday, he asked for the William Tell Overture. I think his band teacher had played a recording of it. I connected his ipod to my computer and prepared to load it.

One of the features on the iTunes software is the ability to see how many times a song has been played. Out of curiosity, I sorted his music by number of plays and nearly fell out of my chair when I saw the most popular piece.

The Haydn trumpet concerto in E flat Major. 533 plays. Five hundred, thirty-three.

I guess he likes that piece.  I'm astounded.

Finding out what my son really loves makes my Monday.  To see more Monday makers, visit Cheryl at Twinfatuation.

Your children awe me. As do you. 533!!!! That is just beyond inspirational.

Thank you so much for Making My Monday, ThreeUnder! (now I need to go cue something more dignified... ;) )
