My 3-year old’s latest musical obsession is Karen O. from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. And frankly, I can’t blame him.
It all started with Rock Band. I play a lot of it and one of my favorite songs is Maps. I drum, he sings (with his console unplugged, of course, so we don’t get booed off). One day I decided to show him the video to Maps so he can work on his Karen O. moves. To say he’s smitten is an understatement. He watches her completely transfixed, with mouth agape. After seeing the video for Gold Lion for the first time, he turned to me, all serious, and said: “Momma, she’s magic. That’s why she has a microphone.”
