Sven Junior is currently digging Bobby Darin--"Splish Splash" and "Mac The Knife"--which he calls "The Shark Song." Any Yo Gabba Gabba fans here? One of the guys from The Aquabats is a co-creator--Scott something. Mark Mothersbaugh draws stuff. Lots of musical guests--
the link below is my favorite. I love Moono the Monster's grandparents with the old man hat and lady monster's bouffant hairdo...

We too have been experiencing the joy of Muppets S1-3. A huge kick for me and my wife, and my kid really loves it. And you're totally right about the time capsule aspect, it's hilarious. We were playing in the sandbox and my kid sticks a guy in a dump truck and says "driver". And I say, "oh cool, what's the driver's name?" And he responds instantly "Bob Hope". Two words a toddler should never utter. Two other words? "Candice Bergen".

You would be referring to The MC Bat Commander (Christian Jacobs).

Don't even get me started on the Aquabats. They are more awesome than shooting Godzilla with an LSD freakout ray.

this thread takes me back, back, back to the 70s. My mother had a massive vinyl collection, aquired mostly before she divorced my dad. That was back when they were both in their early 20s, living in Europe.

I'd kill for that stack of music today. Every Beatles record. Every Stones record through about 1975. Old Neil Diamond... when he was good. CCR. Lots of REAL outlaw country.

I remember being too young to be able to figure out the difference between Bruce Springsteen and Buffalo Springfield.

My mom used to play Janis Joplin on Saturday mornings while we watched cartoons with the sound turned down. Weird, how 20 years later my friends in college were doing the same thing.

All that great music used to play on the old Fischer Hi Fi. It had massive Walnut speaker cases with so much base that I'd lay on the floor in front of it when I was a kid just to feel the floor vibrate.

Li'l Jake: "Daddy, what is 'blotter' and how does it twist up your mind?"
_______________

My kids are older than most of your'n. I have a 12 year old who listens to Fall Out Boy exclusively. (I know, I know, but when I was 12 I wore a red Boston decal tee to school every Friday.)

My 10 year old professes to love Wilco almost as much as me. This of course made me quite proud, until wifey reminded me that our 10-year-old is a classic "Pleaser."

My six year old loves selections that I play from Old 97's ("Dance With Me" and "Blame it on Gravity"), New Pornographers ("Myriad Harbour" and "All the Old Showstoppers"), and Bruce ("Sherry Darlin").

Oh, I know. I figure we've got a few years before he starts asking questions like that. For now he just like to shout "FOUND OUT" during the chorus.

Eventually, I'll simply tell him: You can do it, just not all of the time. But seriously, do kids still eat acid? I thought it got eradicated in 2004.

New thing: the kid started wanting to know the name of the artist. He says, "Somebody singing this song." Which translates to "Who sings this song?" This weekend he requested "Mystery Train" and asked "Somebody singing this song." I replied, "That's Elvis." Him: "Elvis. [pause] Somebody playing guitar this song." Very proud moment. Me: "That's Scotty Moore." Him: "Scotty Moore." Next day, listening to "Mystery Train" again, him: "Scotty Moore playing guitar this song." Very proud papa.

My kid's only 5 months old. He does respond well, however, to me bouncing him and singing "Twist & Shout" as well as the "ice cream & cake" song from the Baskin Robbins commercial (man does that get stuck in my head!).
