I've been teaching the kids how to tell the difference between U2, Kings of Leon and The White Stripes, my three mainstays on my iPod. I don't listen to the radio so all we have during the 3 minute drive to school is about enough time for one song. They have become quite good and Valentina is making great progress given that Asa has two years of a headstart.
The other day Valentina was home sick so it was just Asa and me again. I kind of miss those mornings of just the two of us but I also love taking and picking up both kids every day. Anyway, I warned Asa I was going to test him with a song. I put on Jack White's version of U2's "Love is Blind."
Asa paused at the intro, did what I have taught him and listened to the singers voice. About 30 seconds into the song he said "hmmmm.....the SINGER sounds like The White Stripes but the SONG sounds like U2."
"YES!" I exclaimed. I told him it was a cover song (he's very familiar with The Killers version of U2's "Ultravoilet") and told him he nailed it!
I'm so proud of my little music maestro.
