Sam does love bathtime. It's the highlight of his day... after eating and pooping.
Here's ten songs to bathe in...
10. No Doubt - Bathwater
I did prefer Gwen Stefani before she became so big and full of herself.
9. The Wonder Stuff - 30 Years In The Bathroom
And you think your other half spends a long time in the bath! Imagine if you lived with Miles Hunt...
And now the time has come to share the joke8. God Help The Girl - Pretty Eve In The Tub
That the latch on the bathroom door is broke
And now it's time to let you know
That it's only the beat of my heart that is slow
Who's fault is this? I deny that it's mine
I been stuck in here since 1959
That's 30 good years in the bathroom baby
Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch was found lurking outside this lady's bathroom making suggestive remarks through the steamed up window.
7. The Beatles - She Came In Through The Bathroom Window
As part of the majestic opera that is Side 2 of Abbey Road, this is Lennon & McCartney at their most amazing. Doesn't really work outside that context though.
6. The Divine Comedy - Bath
Only Neil Hannon could begin a song with a quote from the bible, followed by a lengthy string quartet intro, the lines "Rub-a-dub-dub, it's time for a scrub"... before going on to tell us of Ophelia's last day on earth. If you call that pretentious, you don't understand genius.
5. Bobby Darin - Splish Splash
We sang this to Sam quite a lot to encourage enjoyment in his earliest bathtime adventures. The cheesier side of rock 'n' roll: good, clean fun.
4. Tindersticks - Bathtime
Stuart Staples, the world's greatest pub-singer, gets filthy in the city and needs to clean up his act.
3. Harry Nilsson - Bath
I'm beginning to think there's hope for the human race...Steady on, Harry...
2. The Beat - Mirror In The Bathroom
Ska classic. Great beat, don't try to make sense of the lyrics.
Can I take you to a restaurant1. The Real Tuesday Weld - Bathtime In Clerkenwell
That's got glass tables?
You can watch yourself
While you are eating
I think it's fair to say there's nothing else like this track on this Top Ten... or anywhere else in the known universe. No idea what it's about or where it came from, but it sounds like the best bathtime ever...
Which one makes you want to take a soak?
