Never Heard Bohemian Rhapsody?

The other day my mum sent a youtube link. It was for Dani to see an American teenager’s reaction to hearing Bohemian Rhapsody (by Queen) for the first time ever. Actually he could have been early 20s. Hard to say. But the question I am going to ask must be obvious…

How the hell can he not have heard that song before? Has he been living in a nuclear bunker all his life? Has that kid not watched any music shows on TV as he grew up. Actually there are several such videos on youtube so that kid is not on his own…

There was a recent movie – I think called Bohemian Rhapsody – about Queen. The song must have appeared in several other movies, movie trailers and TV shows over the years too. It is still played and mentioned on radio stations around the globe even 48 years after its release.  Surely he must have seen or heard one of these things?…

Anyway, it reminded me of a post I did a while ago with Dani singing the song in full. I found it (click here for that post) and was amazed that it was from four years ago. Daniel was 4 years old (closer to 5 actually, but hey…). Right at the end of the post I added the voice recording. Wow! that was back in August 2018. So funny then. Even better now because it embarrasses him LOL!

Here is that recording:-

It’s quite fun this. He did really well for his age. It could be useful too. I think I can use it to get him to do what i want whenever he has friends over.

I blame the parents….

Back to my main point: How is it possible to avoid a song like Bohemian Rhapsody for the past 20 (or so) years? It’s simple really isn’t it? I blame the parents. How can they allow this kid to grow up and be (seemingly) well educated and not have him listen to such classic songs? It makes no sense to me.

Now all I have to do is stop Dani playing Black Sabbath’s first album repeatedly whenever we are in the car.  It’s starting to get on my nerves now LOL!
