My kitchen soundtrack

Another important necessity in my kitchen? A soundtrack! Listening to music while I bake means some good stuff is going on – there could be dancing, singing, and there’s always the hope that I’m making something edible and delicious. Or, there’s a chance to be serenaded, we all need that once in a while, and that way I can pretend there’s a soundtrack to my life. The best thing to do is choose a playlist in accordance with my mood, then press shuffle. (example lists to choose from: Party Party Dance Time, My movie soundtrack, Belt-It-Out-Sing-a-Long) I am addicted to music, so here’s just a l’il sample of what’s in the mix around here:

Yann Tiersen: (You know, the guy behind the music of the film Amelie?!) For those moments I need to feel like there is a real possibility that I’m working at a bakery in Paris, or in some tiny town in Southern France. My husband, Pierre of course, rides his bike around training for the Tour de France.

Bonnie Prince Billy: For those moments that living in a remote cabin in Montana where the nearest town is twenty miles away with a population of 76, and homeschooling, sound like a great idea.

Fun upbeat stuff (i.e. Eliza Doolittle, The Cults, Oh Land, or that famous duet of Elton John and Kiki See (You know, “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart”): I’m shooting the intro for my movie, a romantic comedy of course, where I run the course of getting dumped/meeting Mr. Right/running away from Mr. Right/falling in love with Mr. Right. Oh, and also trying to get that promotion I so desire, and dealing with a disobedient dog who keeps eating all of my shoes and bras! ARG! Sounds like a great movie, right? You’d totally watch it during the day on a Sunday when there’s nothing good on TV.

The Kinks/The White Stripes/Gang of Four/Stevie Wonder: Perfect for days when I am so happy that I actually have the delirious notion that Amy Poehler may walk through my front door for dinner, or there may be a package on my front porch from Marc Jacobs himself containing the entire Marc by Marc Spring 2012 collection and a note that reads, “Love you Emmy!” I am literally sliding on the floor to ‘Superstitious’ in my socks and doing spins from the sink to the stand mixer.

Nina Simone/Adele/Whitney Houston?*: Whenever there’s a need to sing along loudly, I mean really loudly. As a result I have to read, then re-read, directions many, many times over. Pretty much I am always reading directions at least a dozen times when I am baking. *I actually don’t have Whitney Houston in my music collection. I should though…

Sergio Mendes/Beastie Boys: When a dance party in the kitchen is in order, where Jack will definitely take it literally when Mike D says “Kick it!”

And finally, if ever Ram Jam’s “Black Betty” comes into the shuffled mix, I have to stop what I’m doing, cross my legs to prevent myself from peeing my pants, and find tissues to wipe my eyes because I’m crying as I am hysterically laughing. I have no idea why this song does what it does to me, but it does. I think it’s a curse, not sure though.

I don’t have a picture of the dancing that goes on in the kitchen. I’ve got this one though where I think I’m busting a groove to Lady Gaga’s “Pokerface”, and I’ve cropped it to save myself some shred if dignity. But you can imagine a whisk in one hand, and a wooden spoon in the other.
