Turning my 10-year-old on to music!
The Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks...
Played it for my 10-year-old yesterday and he freaked out. In fact, later on, he insisted on listening to it while taking a shower. I put the boom box in the bathroom, away from the shower, by the bathroom door and, while I was folding laundry in the next room, could I hear him rocking out, singing along to whatever he (thought he) could understand. At one point, he even poked his head, out from behind the shower curtain, sporting a shampoo mohawk. He had a huge smile on his face, knowing how ridiculous it all was...
"MY BEAUTFUL SELF-ISH!!!"
Later on, he told me, "Dad, this is now one of my favorite albums, ever!"
I love being a dad.
The language... he hears worse from his mom! ;-)
But, he knows not to use that language, and he's a good kid, so it's all good. I just love that he loves music. And, there is plenty that he likes that I don't and vice versa, so it's not just a case of me creating a Mini Me.
He actually asked me to check that disc out of the library for him.
