Today I took the boys to get their hair cut at Rudy's. While waiting for Big Dog to finish up, they started playing The Clash. Should I Stay or Should I Go to be precise. At which point Little Dog demanded my attention. "It's my favorite song!" he said enthusiastically, then started singing along. Next up was Rock the Casbah which he mistakenly called "Rock the Jazz bah" but still enthusiastically approved. He's been a fan of the Clash for a while now, so I'm not really surprised.
The other day on the way home from school, I asked Little Dog if he wanted to listen to some music. He did. He asked for a specific song, Blitzkrieg Bop by the Ramones. As we talked about the music and and listened to a few other songs, Little Dog told me that was his favorite band. Who can blame him? The Ramones are awesome. But thinking back I believe I may have laid the early groundwork for his very classic punk taste in music with his first Halloween costume. You decide.
