Hallelujah

Sometimes, when the stress gets me down, the fact that my son is a musical genius makes me feel better.

We recently discovered this video together on Youtube and it has become his favorite, the one he asks for over and over.

He's three...so yeah...I'm thinking musical genius.

And also?

Crazily intuitive about what's going on inside Mommy's head.

That is a very cool video! My son is very much into music too. I want to get him into guitar lessons but have been unsuccessful thus far.

Andrew is my musical genius (at least in my eyes) and loves the guitar too. Aren't kids amazing?? Love it.

Karen said...

Such talent! But that's kind of a melancholy song for the inside of your head. Just checking in on you guys.

Chantal said...

That is beautiful. I love it. Funny enough I posted my sons favourite youtube vid yesterday. Come over and have a look. Compare my sons taste to yours :)

that song is, of course, the quintessential melancholy battlecry for Canadian women. So pretty/sad.

PunkyBean said...

Awesome!!!! kgirl - some "Canadian woman" must've rubbed off on my down here in Minnesota! I LOVE IT!

My boys all rushed over just now when I played this video. They loved it too, but I think it is because they recognized it from Shrek. They looked at me and said, "Mom! That's from Shrek! Can we watch Shrek?" hehe Little turds.

That was beautiful. I may just have to keep that on a running loop today! Thanks for sharing...

Jen said...

My kid asked to watch Shrek too.

Cool video. Gord Downie from Tragically Hip does a nice version.

Laura said...

Love that song!

I agree - Graham is a musical genius!

Mimi said...

The fact that it is one of the best songs ever is totally cool and intuitive.

Leonard Cohen is a freaken genius. Your son a very soft soul.

Heather said...

This song is one of my absolute favorites, and I've heard all versions, but this is VERY cool.

Thinking about you.

What a fun video! I hadn't seen it before. It's amazing how musically inclined some kids are!

daysgoby said...

Darn it, Kelly, this has been running on a loop in my brain for the last eighteen hours....

I love it, though! (But I can't say that everyone else who's been hearing my warbling has!!)

Wow, I love her harmonizing to herself! Gorgeous. And the boy on the guitar is just lovely.
Isn't the ability of our children to lift our spirits incredible. Love your boy!

Leanne said...

Wow. I love how they did this. I have to show this to my kids...

Here's hoping your cold is better
too.

I love nothing better than my son and my daughter's boyfriend sitting around strumming their guitars, playing snippets of this and that. Would that we had a vocalist like her in the family!
