Static

The 5 y.o.’s latest favorite song is Josh Ritter’s cover of Frightened Rabbit’s “Old Old Fashioned.”

One line created a conversation:

🎵So give me soft, soft static🎵
🎵With a human voice underneath🎵

He asked “what’s static?” which is a good question this day and age with everything digital and streaming.

So I also got to introduce him to AM radio.

Now he’ll randomly ask to listen to “static” — not the “static song” which he’s now figured out the name of, but actual static with a voice in the background.

Kids are weird and awesome, y’all.
