The Answer Is Blowing In The Wind

Yesterday we were listening to the Forest Gump soundtrack in the car on the way home from The Boy's school. As we pulled up to our house Blowing in the Wind was playing. I switched off the radio and the car and The Boy finished out the verse that I'd turned the car off in the middle of. Then he piped up from the backseat, "I really like that song. It's pretty. It's a good song even if it was written for Democrats." Heh. What's his father been teaching this kid? I assured him we could like the music without agreeing with the message. After all, I was raised on The Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul and Mary without any visible signs of scarring.


LOL!!! That is so funny.
Is there any Republican music?

I guess some country music might pass for Republican music, though I haven't thought about it much. Alice Cooper is a Republican, but I'm not sure his music would exactly be what I want my kids listening too. I guess we'll stick to hippy music. It fits with us sending him to hippy German school.

That's a great soundtrack. Forrest Gump was the first "date" movie Hubby and I saw--after dating for three years. *grin*

I was skimming your blog, and at first I thought the title to this post was "The Answer is Blogging in the Wind."
