We had a thunderstorm here last week (or was that two weeks ago now?) and I could tell Anna was a little wierded out by it. So I started to sing "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC and she asked what I was singing. I showed her a You Tube video of AC/DC performing it live. (Watch it here. They've disabled embedding on the video, otherwise I'd totally put it up here.)
It's now one of Anna's favorite videos on You Tube. Right up there with the classic Sesame Street song, "Opposites."
In fact, one day she told me, "I want to watch Thunderstruck then Opposites."
So, here's some video of her singing Thunderstruck (or at least one part of it, over and over and over and over again):
Sure, there might be some sexual undertones to the song, but oh well. She doesn't know that. And hey, at least he says, "Can I come again, please?" I mean, he could just say, "I'm going to come again." But no, not only does he ask, but he also has the decency to say please.
See, Thunderstruck is teaching her good manners. Thunderstruck is a gentleman.
And just for the record, I am not nor have I ever been a big fan of AC/DC. They're good at what they do, don't get me wrong, but it's just not my thing. Well ... OK, maybe it was my thing for one summer back in high school. I mean, "Back in Black" did kick some serious ass. Oh, and that's the other video of theirs Anna likes to watch; old concert video of Back in Black. She always comments on how many lights there are.
