For some reason this week – it is probably with school starting, that I was reminded of when I was in the First Grade and the first two songs I learned. You can say they are my favorite because whenever I hear it I am transported back to the DOD (Dept of Defense) Mannheim Elementary School in Mannheim Germany where my father was stationed.
The two most things I enjoyed was learning to read and singing songs.
I can hear my mother as she sang with me. To me she had the most beautiful voice in the world as I think of her singing German folk songs and the songs from the hit parade.
What is your favorite song from childhood?
Frère Jacques, frère Jacques
Sonnez les matines, sonnez les matines
Are you sleeping, are you sleeping
Brother John, brother John
Morning bells are ringing, morning bells are ringing
London Bridge Is Falling Down
