Hunter has always been interested in all types of music, which has been nice because it has meant that we don't have to play children's music all the time when we're driving but instead listen to it intermittently on long trips and only occasionally when driving in the city. A couple of weeks ago, Jason borrowed a Queen CD from the library and now Hunter is completely addicted. Every time we get in the car he wants to listen to "another one busts the dust" (it doesn't matter how many times we tell him it's bites the dust, it's bust the dust to him), or "that crazy frog song" (translation - We are the Champions), or "that loud one" (translation - We Will Rock You). I knew it was true love when I offered to put in Philadelphia Chickens (best children's CD ever and Hunter's old standby) and he turned it down in favour of more Queen, more, more, more. And while it might be driving Jason crazy (and filling him with regret that he ever took that particular CD out from the library), I don't mind obsessive CD listening in the least because I have the exact same pathology. When I buy a new CD I usually listen to it for about two weeks straight (at least) then put it away for a long, long time. Doing that means that most CDs (and certain songs on the CDs that got even more play) transport me to other places and times because that's the comforting song I played 42 thousand times when my brother died ("let it be"), or that's the song I was singing along to when I got in the stupidest car accident ever ("punk rock girl"), or that I used to wake up to every morning when I was 16 ("a day in the life" - damn that rooster crowing), or that we listened to on that awesome road trip to Edmonton (Violent Femmes - self-titled), or that we listened to on that first drive to, and for quite a while when, we moved to Banff ("killing in the name of"). Sometimes when I listen to Sgt. Pepper's, I am momentarily transported back to my teenage room and can even vividly recollect the smell of those horrendous herbal cigarettes I purchased for some reason I can't remember. No, I don't mind Hunter's addiction to Queen at all, because I know that every time I hear "Fat Bottomed Girls", "Queen Bee", or any of the other songs on Classic Queen I will vividly remember these moments too.
