Music is a huge part of our lives. My husband owns a company that makes synthesizers (musical instruments) and we listen to music together as a family every day. We often have music playing in the morning while we eat breakfast and in the afternoons while the boys play together or do artwork.
We also take music with us when we go on road trips or when we travel. We love traveling and we travel lots so the kid’s iPads are filled with the music they love. We just visited Los Cabos, Mexico and when we had downtime after a fun filled morning at the pool or the beach we all enjoyed listening to our music in the hotel room.
The boys are big fans of Disney movie soundtracks so we always have those on repeat. The new Cars 3 soundtrack from the Disney Cars 3 movie is phenomenal, we added it to our music collection already.
The Cars 3 soundtrack features four cover songs, including two bonus tracks (not included in the movie).*
- “Kings Highway,” originally released in 1991 by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, makes a comeback courtesy of 23-year-old British singer-songwriter James Bay
- Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 hit “Glory Days” gets a modern-day makeover by Grammy®-nominated performer Andra Day, who voices Sweet Tea in the film—a performer in the Cotter Pin with a hairstyle reminiscent of Day’s signature look.
- *The Beatles’ classic 1965 song “Drive My Car” is back on the road, compliments of Hollywood Records artist Jorge Blanco.
- *“Freeway of Love,” made famous in 1985 by Aretha Franklin, is performed for the soundtrack by actress Lea DeLaria, who also provides the voice of Miss Fritter, a school bus-turned-demolition-derby-queen in “Cars 3.”
The boys are also super excited to watch the Cars 3 movie that just came out on Friday, June 16th. We’ve all been eagerly waiting to watch it! You can download the Cars 3 soundtrack HERE and enjoy the movie at your nearest theater now.
