Musical asides...

By the way, I forgot to mention in my last note a couple of amusing music notes.

First, you *know* you're reached the age of musical irrelevance when your children start complaining that obviously a kindergarten class has taken over the radio station because the music they grew up wit is now called "classic". (Thanks, TJ. I laughed all day!)

Second, speaking of 1980s music, as I keep droning on about, we're studying Egypt. So, of course, I had to dig up a you-tube of the bangles "Walk Like and Egyptian". And, of course, Jack loved it and has been dancing all over the place singing Dance Like an Egyptian -- made even more funny by the fact that he profoundly doesn't "get" it.

Last night, while I was dawdling over the steamed veg, I found a YouTube of an Egyptian dance troupe who has choreographed a dance to the Bangles hit, but with real Egyptian flavour. That was very cool...and Jack probably won't be quite as funny now. But more authentic...sort of.


  1. Sounds like fun! I love the comment about "classic" music - got a chuckle!
    Please post a link to the Egyptian music link!
