Kate and Opehlia dissect this week's episode of Memphis to Manchester

Sunday, 02 October 2011

 

Below is a conversation that took place between a friend of mine, Kate Eddens, and her daughter, Ophelia, during this week's episode of Memphis to Manchester (Me = Kate; O = Ophelia):

 

Playing: Blind Eyes

 
O: Who's this singing, mom?
Me: Blind Eyes.
O: I like this song.
Me: Yeah. 
 
Playing: PJ Harvey
 
O: Who's this singing, mom?
Me: PJ Harvey. She's one of my favorite singers. 
O: Me too, mama, I like her. I like this song. 
 
Playing: The Beatles
 
O: What's this song, mama?
Me: The Beatles
O: I like the Beatles. I have a Beatles shirt!
Me: Yep. 
O: Why is this song playing?
Me: Because mommy's friend John is playing it on the radio, and he's playing it for mommy's other friend Toby.
 
Playing: The first two chords of Bob Dylan. 
 
O: What's this song, mama? 
Me: I don't know, kiddo.
 
After two seconds of Bob singing...
 
O: Who is this singing, mama?
Me: Bob Dylan
O: I don't like Bob Dylan. I just like the girl and The Beatles. 
Me: PJ Harvey and the Beatles? 
O: Yeah. I don't like this. 
 
Playing: I Want You
 
O: What's this song, mama?
Me: Well, I don't know who's singing, but it's a Bob Dylan song too, but a girl is singing it. 
O: It looks like a church.
Me: You see that church over there? 
O: No, this song looks like it's in a church. 
Me: You mean this song sounds like it would be played in church? 
O: Yeah, it's a church song.
Me: Yeah, it kind of does.
