What is music these days besides mindless fluff , or product?
Give your kiddies Zeppelin or Floyd any day.
Good for what ails ya.
My kid's favorite band is Pink Floyd (he's 8). He's getting a Floyd shirt for Christmas. It'll probably be his new favorite shirt. He always comments whenever he sees someone wearing a Floyd shirt and now he'll have his own. Took a while to find one in his size.
Mate if you have done that for your kid , you rule. (seriously )
All my friends at school (in the mid 1990s) were playing grunge and rap , I was playing Zeppelin , Floyd and Queen and I was the freak?
Get a music education ladies!
Funny story; we were on our way home late from eating out with friends one night and the kid had slowly closed his eyes and drifted off. We had the radio on quietly and as we pulled into the driveway I turned around and told him to wake up, we're home. He woke up quickly and basically shouted "Pink Floyd, Shine On You Crazy Diamond!" That was the song that was on at the time.

You cannot beat experiences, you are correct, and I let him experience a number of things on his own to learn things. But I don't want him to get burned to know how it feels. Have a concussion to know how it feels. Watch a man hit a woman to see what it's like. Know what I'm saying? Not every experience is a healthy one. I recall flipping through the Sirius channels and I enjoy Backspin, basically the hip hop classics. Tricky was on and that's a fun song so I let it play and we were mighty whitily jamming out to it when I quickly remembered the next lines; Went to her house and bust her out, I had to leave real early. These girls are really sleazy, all they just say is please me. I turned it. Look, I realize he'll hear these lyrics at some point. But when he does he'll know why I didn't let him listen to them at the time.
