Just Another Sign That The Kid's All Right

Bella: "That song just kinda...breaks my heart."

Me: "Really?"

Bella: "Yeah. Songs that are really good, and cool...just break my heart a little."


The song? The Sex Pistols' "God Save The Queen."

I love this kid.

  3. I am SO glad to hear that I'm not the only one who plays the Sex Pistols around her kids. :-) I LOVE it (and I love your site, too. Just de-lurking now. Unless I've delurked before and forgotten about it).

    Hope you're feeling better, Belinda.

  8. Breaks my heart that the Sex Pistols members are either dead or brain dead.

    Bella has good taste. As do her parents who let her listen to such diverse musical choices.

  9. Have you seen VH1's "History of Rock" series? Johnny Rotten is featured prominently in the "Punk" episode, and he looks AMAZING, and seems sharp as a tack, surprisingly enough. I highly recommend the series--I'm pretty sure all episodes are available on YouTube.

    The last thing I remember Bella making a real fuss over, music-wise, was "Jupiter," from Gustav Holst's "The Planets" suites. Eclectic is good, right? ;-)

  10. I haven't seen it. I will definitely have to catch it.

    I love a kid with eclectic taste in music. When my daughter was younger, I exposed her to almost everything. Punk, new wave, soul, classical, funk. You name it, she knew it. As a young adult, she has a very cool sense of music throughout the genres, and her friends are always amazed at what she likes.

  13. Bella has the BEST personality.

    I wonder if she can teach my kid to be awesome?

  14. What a great kid, great mom. You rock.

  15. YES! That is one cool kid, and an extremely cool Mom that has her child listen to the Sex Pistols... Kinda like me (sniff,sniff)... Does Bella know any Ramones songs?
