My four-year-old is so cool

We were in the car this morning on the way to daycare, listening to 94.7, and a new song came on. The voice was familiar, and I asked out loud (to no one in particular): "I wonder if this is Snow Patrol. It sounds like Snow Patrol." Then the chorus started, and I realized it was SP's "Shut Your Eyes," which I'd never heard before. "It is Snow Patrol. Go, me."

Then a voice from the backseat said, "I want to hear 'Chasing Cars.'"

So I dug out my iPod, plugged it into the cigarette lighter, and we listened to that SP song. Then he wanted to hear some Rilo Kiley.

Love this kid.

I'm jealous. All my 5 year old son wants to listen to is High School Musical and Hannah Montana. (Yes, he has an older sister....)

I'm not nearly so hip as your kid, as I've not heard of those, either (but I bet they are on Politica's iPod, which has considerably less Broadway than mine).

We are all about the Hannah Montana around here, too. Not my favorite.

Interesting. My kids like (at varying levels) the opera/classical/broadway end of my wife's and my ecclectic musical tastes, but everything else (oldies, country, rock) brings howels (literally) of protest. Fortunately, they've gone the Wiggles/Jim Gill route in kids music, rather than things I find annoying.

I appreciate that you are trying to give Angry Boy and Angry Little Baby good taste in music from a young age. Just watch out for the pitfalls of making them too cool for school once they reach adolescence. (During my high school years of 1987-1991, I found the similarly raised Led Zeppelin fans a little on the insufferable side.)

Speaking of generational music:

"OK, like, the way I feel about the Rolling Stones is the way my kids are going to feel about Nine Inch Nails, so I really shouldn't torment my Mom anymore, huh?"

On the way home, he requested the Mighty Mighty Bosstones' "Someday I Suppose" (as usual) and Guster's "Amsterdam."

Oh, I love that your boy has better musical taste than most of the population! Whenever my guys see my iPod, they want REM's Superman and K-Os' Crabbukkit. Over and over and over again.

NSBH alsways tells me, "I have that one on my radio" when she hears a familiar song.
