Do you have a soundtrack for your summer?  For some of you it may include children’s songs with artists like Caspar Babypants. Maybe its for your get away to the gym. At our house it would contain more than a smattering of 80’s music. In fact I was feeling a little proud that my youngest could sing along with the minions is the final moments of Despicable Me 2 as they performed YMCA. Pre 80’s I know but we like the silliness of the old stuff and it’s not uncommon to hear Safety Dance or 99 Red Balloons blasting from my teenager’s dock.
