Flash and Super Q heart Jimmy Eat World

Oh, dear, I think I've started a problem here. My boys, both younger than 8, are turning into fans of "rock songs". The other night they were SO loud and SO argumentative in the back of the car (which car, you ask? see below... VW wagon, name of Chaz, once beloved by me, now a source of pain every time I remember the c*r*a*s*h ... also mentioned below) ...anyway, I finally said, "OK, if you'll be quiet, you can listen to ROCK MUSIC! (Cheers). I put on a mix CD from a friend. "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World came on, and, well... my boys are now huge fans of skate rock or however you'd categorize it. And now they sing the song all day long. I don't mind too much; it has a Nice Message and all. Better than "My Humps" or something. It's oft requested in the car and we turn it up loud and dance and play instruments. Flash is on electric guitar and he put Super Q on "the other guitar." As usual, I'm relegated to keyboards. Geez.

If you have a backseat full of mini rockers, I would suggest "Here it Goes Again" by OK Go...it might afford you a little variety at least!

Thanks, Lindsay. They also favor one by Blink182 that has some super lame lines like, "she left me roses by the stairrrs... surprisese let me know she cares". Totally awesome.

When I was their age, my rock band was Huey Lewis and the news. The Power of Love, The Heart of Rock and Roll, Hip to be Square, all classics now. Of course those were the days when beats were beats, so I always took the drums and lead vocals.

Is the mix cd that you are talking about the one that I sent you? If so, I am glad that the boys like it. Mitchell is really into "Thunderstruck" by ACDC right now. He even sang it for our dentist and his pediatrician. I felt like such a great mom for introducing my four year old to ACDC!
