Son no 3 is a teenager – so I am obliged to listen to his “music” in the car in the mornings, otherwise I am not considered cool or with it or whatever term they use nowadays.
Anyway, this morning is no different – we are listening to his crap. He describes it as “Dubstep” or “Club music”. The song we are listening to actually sounds like music for a change so I look at my LCD screen and it says we are listening to Deadmau5. So I query this with my son and the conversation goes as follows:
Me: What are we listening to?
Son 3: Deadmau5
Me: (confused): But I thought Deadmau5 was a male
Son 3: He is
Me: But this is a female singing
Son 3 (rolling eyes): Because Deaumau5 doesn’t sing
Me: So who is singing?
Son 3 (pointing to title of song on the LCD panel) : It says here featuring Greta …… (whoever… – I forgot who – never heard of her anyway)
Me: So is she part of Deadmau5?
Son 3 (now annoyed with me): I’ve told you before – Deadmau5 is a DJ – he doesn’t sing – he only does the background music!
So now I am really confused – in my day that used to be called a Composer – have I missed something?
