As I was sat at the computer this evening Paula was feeding the boys and I could hear the David Gilmour CD I made from his recent Remember That Night DVD on the stereo. What really made me smile was the fact that Joel requested the CD, it's currently his favourite (having displaced Roger Waters to #2) and he loves singing along to classic Pink Floyd tracks from the 70's such as Breathe, Wish You Were Here & Comfortably Numb. He's word perfect and sings beautifully. In fact, he knows some of the Floyd stuff so well that he has his own names for them, for example Shine On You Crazy Diamond is known as the Aquarium Song. Joel's favourite at the moment is definitely Gilmour's performance of Echoes, he just can't get enough of it!
A class moment during this evening's Pink Floyd sing-along was when Joel told Eli to stop singing as he was being Richard Wright on the keyboards. Joel is also very taken with David Bowie and his rendition of Arnold Layne.
No silly nursery rhyme CD's in our house or car!
My boys make me VERY proud!!
