This crew right here? It’s my family…well, one side at least. All 13 of us will rendezvous in Denver this weekend for a little 4th of July family reunion — the first since this picture was taken at my brother’s rehearsal dinner back in November.
Thinking about seeing my family brought to mind some of my favorite songs about families. This is one of the few topics I haven’t written any songs about yet, but luckily there are some great ones out there.
My number one go-to family song is My Family, by the Laurie Berkner Band. It should come as no big surprise, because everyone around here knows how much I love LBB! I have used this with my family-oriented Church Mice music class as well as in music therapy sessions, and I’m actually jamming to it right now as I type this :) Here’s the video:
I hope that like me, you’ll have a chance to spend time with your own family over the upcoming holiday weekend. What are your favorite tunes about family?
