Deep thoughts...

When we travel, I try to think of ways to torture my children in the car so by passers won't see and judge me for being a mean mom and call CPS, so...I make them listen to seventies music!!!Full. Blast.

Homer and I sing at the top of our lungs just to really top it off and embarrass them. I remember knowing and singing to all the songs of the sixties and seventies growing up, knowing every word. Well, here we are singing along, and we listen to them alot so McFly has learned some of the words, and we are singing along to the song "Chevy Van" and McFly is singing also.

Have you paid attention to the words of the songs you grew up with!!!! Oh. My. Gosh!!! I was embarrassed!!! Was I stupid growing up? Did I just not pay attention to the words that I sang and just got into the music, or was I that naive that I don't know what it all meant?

We are talking about a guy who picks up a hitch hiker in his van and saying she has the face of an angel and tan legs and he is fantasizing about her while she sleeps and when she wakes up "she took me by the hand and we made love in my chevy van and that's alright with me".

It kind of takes you back when your children are listening to this stuff (although I will admit the song really takes me back in time), and then the next song..."One Toke Over The Line"...HELLO!!! what kind of crap are we listening to? And why do we call it "great music" when it's our stuff and garbage when it's their stuff? Do they listen to the words? I don't think I really did growing up, I just got into the tunes.

So...I'm a hypocrite, sue me. What do ya'll think? Am I going to hell and will you guys be there with me? I would enjoy the company...

I think we were a little bit of all....naive...and deaf. Who actually heard and understood those lyrics? By then again, you are way older than I am, so maybe it's just your hippie music. My daughter had to "study" lyrics in her english class this year. She came home upset and can never listen to "Hotel California" again. Then again, she is a good girl.

Smokin' in the boys room...what's wrong with that song? Or Afternoon Delight? You're crazy! The lyrics are fine! And I'll see you in hell. hahahaha!!!

Ames,
unfortunately I never could get Cari to get high with me. She said she was high on life already, or messed up already....I can't remember which. hahaha

Oh man, I just heard a song I listened to in highschool and it was BAAAAD, and I mean seriously really bluntly BAAAAAAAAADDD. So I'm right there with you, I love music! :D

It is so refreshing to come upon your blog. You are so real and funny. Also, I can relate to your words in this post about the songs of the 60's. So many love songs song by guys. Could you imagine men really saying those words especially today!

Hey my little ones know all the words to, "I like Big Butts" and the new version of "You Spin Me Right Round"

Believe me... you are NOT alone!!!

I was already a big girl when these songs were playing, so I understood the lyrics. Lived some of it too, but not the 'Chevy Van' and that's all right with me!
