Soundtrack for Cleaning Party

Saturday was a gargantuan cleaning party: boy, did we clean. And dance. In our house cleaning and dancing go together.

Picture Noah and Aviva rushing about, plucking toys and books from the floor and darting to dump them in their proper containers, then pausing to run in circles shouting and then leap onto me for a series of complicated jitterbug-like maneuvers in which their slippers almost touch the ceiling.

Aviva and Noah designed the soundtrack on Real Rhapsody (I know, I know, as a good copyleftist I shouldn't be using a DRM'd service, I feel the EFF frowning at me as I type, but I like the interface, and the convenience of listening to what I want and knowing that the artists are getting paid). It's a good representation of their musical eclecticism:

After an intermission, a second list was chosen (some selections, clearly, for the humor value of the titles):

(Note that this latter "Union Maid" was actually played several times in succession to allow time for an improvisational interpretive dance in which Aviva was the Union Maid, Noah was the Company Goons, and I was the Owning Classes.)
