Afterwards, we decided to introduce our son to a bunch of different classic rock albums, to see if he'd have a similar reaction. Here are the photographic results from our unscientific (but very fun) study.
Bruce Springsteen - Born To RunSeamus is clearly picturing himself speeding down the highway in a classic American automobile, with wind flowing through those future locks, which should be coming in any day now...
Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
Whoa, mom and dad. Mind. Blown.
He immediately asked if we had a copy of The Wizard of Oz. I don't know who told him about that.
Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street
Now we're rocking!
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced?
Holy $%#$ that dude can play the guitar.
The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin 4
At this point, ready to rage all night long.
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
We had to mellow it out a little bit.
Nine Inch Nails - The Downward SpiralJust some pleasant dinner music to accompany that avocado...*
*This is a joke. We did not really play Nine Inch Nails for our son. That would be f-ed up.
Phil Collins - No Jacket Required
Not a fan.
Nirvana - NevermindHe's sad there weren't more albums.
Billy Idol - Rebel Yell
This pic speaks for itself.
Paul Simon - Graceland
Much dancing ensued.
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick RoadHe's drooling over the richness of the double album format.
AC/DC - Back In BlackSo intense, couldn't even.
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
He sensed the sexual tension between band members, agreed it probably helped with the album's creative process.
Velvet Underground And Nico
After this album, Seamus began to wonder whether he was cooler than most other babies his age and then decided, no, his parents are just a little too influenced by Portlandia.
