Music can really make the evening. Tonight I asked S. what he wanted to hear while making dinner. Rock and roll! The thing about S. and his developing musical taste, is that he likes rock and roll with major electric guitar and head banging opportunities. Like when we scan local radio stations, he turns his nose up at KBCO (alternative, ‘world class’ rock), and instead votes for 99.5 THE MOUNTAIN classic rock. He loves Rush, Van Halen, and the Foo Fighters. I’m all for him listening to whatever he likes, but Rush is the last band I want to hear when I come home from a long day at work. Actually, I don’t ever want to hear Rush, ever. Sorry Rush. I’m not that cool as a parent -he can listen to that with headphones on.
In my ideal cooking world, I’d play Bach cello solos on a constant loop, or some other ultra peaceful, somewhat mindless music. Instead we compromised with a little Paul Simon – Concert in the Park – “The Obvious Child”.
Love those drums! And so did the kids.
What’s on your dinner time play list?
