Transient Witticisms: Music edition

Man, I've been totally neglecting this category, so let me set about fixing that. Today's edition: Music.

  • “Dad-O,” asks radio-listening Henry, “are ‘musicians’ real? And do they really pull rabbits out of hats?”
  • Henry: "Dad-O, what is 'heavy metal?'"
    Me: "Oh, stuff like 'Breaking The Law' & 'TNT.'"
    H.: "Oh! Heavy metal is good for me!!”
  • Listening to Lorde’s “Teams,” 4yo Henry says, “She actually takes her hands off & throws them up in the air!” (I’d be kinda over that, too.)
  • From the back seat this morning: "Dad-O, could a baby duck fit into a can of beer?" I guess the Pixies bring the weird out of Henry. #age4
  • 80's rocker nomenclature baffles young Henry.
    "I guess he must love watermelons."
    "Who?"
    "John Cougar Watermeloncamp."
  • Henry, singing: “We built this city…”
    Me, chuckling: “What would Mom-O say if she heard you?”
    Henry: “G__DAMN it!!”
    (M.: “He’s not wrong.”)
  • “The Rolling Stones?” Henry’s intrigued. “Do they sing quarry music?” Rock on, little man.
  • Upon hearing Neil young's Harvest Moon, Henry says "I think this is an old prospector making train track music."
  • I hear crooner Finn mashing up José Feliciano & Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart": “Feliz Navidad, aaa-gain…”
  • I make the mistake of turning on KFOX in the car. From the back seat the boys immediately yell, “What Does KFOX Say?? Nya nya nyah nyah…!”
  • My reciting of Public Enemy lyrics leaves Finn shaking his head. "I'm a white man, and I'm not familiar with anything Dad-O says!!"
