....coming back from southampton hospital (DS2 had an appointment), and ABBA came on the radio.

I turn the song up and start singing, loudly

DS2 starts making irritating noises......

I glance at him

he has his fingers in his ears, humming loudly, to try and drown out ABBA, and me singing....

he says it is bad bad bad music

and that I am a bad bad bad singer

he is six!

AIBU to think that he has no right, nor grounds to say this......

I like to sing!

<<I know I am slightly tone-deaf, but still.....singing to abba is a right to any woman surely>>

Try him with Kings of Leon - DS loves them!

I love abba
but ds(16) would rather stick pins in his eyes. but then he has excelent taste as he likes metal.

I thought DS had taste tho, he is alwasy asking for the music to go on and be turned up.

he likes a HUGE range in music too!!

not abba tho it seems<<sob>>

((or maybe my singinghmm))

good man that kid.abba are anti-music. they are probably my least favourite band of all time up there with steps.

No, it's the singing. I am no longer allowed to sing. And tbh, I can remember feeling a mixture of mortification and SHAME when my mum sang along to anything.

I feel I've had a bad influence on my kids tastes, they sing to Aerosmith, love Nickleback and actually dance to the new slipknot song (now that is weird!)

grin2shoes......altho he is sat next to me again with fingers in his ears....hmm

I am not singing this time tho, so definately an abba dislike<<sigh>>

he clearly has better taste than his mum....blush

I think maybe I need to stop singing in the car tho!!!((notwink))

DD loves Abba... she also lurrrves the 'bing bang bingadingadong' song from Lazytown, also Aqua, Gina G, any HiNRG-type disco shite stuff

Thought our constant XfM addiction had got through to her last year when she danced with me to a few Feeder tracks, and she knows 'her song' is Mardy Bum (boy am I going to be bad mummy when she realises what that actually means!), but right now it's Europop all the way.

I suppose I should be glad she wasn't born in the time of 2Unlimited... now that would be the end!

Ds (2) described Glasvegas as 'naughty, rubbish music' today. Not sure what this says about his taste level.
