Hearts & Roses????
January 31, 2008
Last weekend, while driving and listening to our local classic rock station, Guns & Roses’, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” came on.
I was magically transported back to 5th grade, with memories of my friend Larua and I watching MTV and spending our weekends at the local skating rink flashing through my head. Good Times.
Towards the end of the song the hubby comes up with this gem: “You know, most people think that’s a guy singing that song”.
I was dumbfounded. “What?? You mean Axl Rose isn’t a guy?” I asked.
“That’s not Axl Rose, that’s Heart” he replied.
“Uh……..No. GNR, buddy”. I informed him.
“Heart” he said with determination.
“No dear, GNR, “Appetite for Destruction”. I have the album (on vinyl) at home. I’ll prove it when we get home.”
He should know it’s pointless to argue this with me, as I was an MTV-lovin’, Metal Edge subscribin’ hair band obsessed, pre-teen during that era, and he was already an old married guy. I guess he’ll never learn.
“I guess it is,” he finally relented, but quickly added, “I’ve heard Heart sing it too.”
I think he is thinking of Sheryl Crow, but I don’t think I’ll ever convince him.
