So while cruising the internet tonight, I stumbled on a site the had the song "Video Killed the Radio Star" playing. Sammy had just heard this song with me in the car as it was on a random playlist in my Zune.
Anyway, the song comes on and I hear Sammy say from behind me "Who killed the Radio Star??"
I say "Video killed the radio star"
"so the guy is named Video?"
"no, it is not about a real person, Sammy"
"So the fake person is named Video and he killed someone?"
"it is not about people at all, Sammy. It is hard to explain to you, but it means tv ruined music"
"well, I think it is about people and the one named Radio is dead. That is a sad song"
While I think the concrete thinking at the age of five is really hilarious, sometimes it can be frustrating. It does however, force me to keep up on the easy explanations of words. I am thinking of writing a thesaurus for 4-6 yr olds.
Personally, I am a fan of this version of the song.
