European Studies

Final CountdownToday two of my kidlets were humming a few bars from Europe’s “Final Countdown.”  A third kidlet joined in.  While I was still agape (the adjective as opposed to the noun), they asked if they could listen to it.  I could feel a blue-pen-cap kind of experience coming on and let it happen.

The music started and the kidlets created a spontaneous airband.  We had a drummer, two guitarists, and a vocalist/trombone player/dancer.  I grabbed the video camera, and magic ensued.  I would very much like to show you the video, but cannot post it in any kind of public way.  THEY would very much like to show you the video but also cannot.  If you see me in person, or know how to find me, ask and I’ll share it.

November is hard (see here for proof).  The week before Thanksgiving is hard.  The Friday before a full moon is hard (a.k.a. The Full Moonies).  Spontaneous airband renditions of The Final Countdown is a joy.

  1. Please tell me you let them play it so you could rip on them for being lame! That's what Shad Fing Rach would do. I'm not all evil though (yes i am) i would have turned them on to some Led Zepplin or the Who, maybe ever some steve miller band (Shad Fing Rach is not full speed all the time, who am i kidding yes i am) mail me my share of their lunch money you took.
