I haven’t written about my daughter in a little while, so I thought I’d share a little story today. When we woke up yesterday morning my little girl was humming a little tune. She was saying “Adda..adda.. racka”. It was cute but I wasn’t really sure what she was saying. As she continued to sing, however, I realized she was singing Queen’s We Will Rock You, a song that anyone that has attended a sporting event in the United States in the past twenty years knows all too well.
Now, I’m a big fan of Queen, but I haven’t really played any of their music for my daughter to hear. For a while, I had no idea where she was getting this song. Then I remembered Donkey Konga, the Nintendo Gamecube game we play, has We Will Rock You in it.
Donkey Konga is really a pretty cool game. You use a bongo drum as a controller and try to drum to the song. Every now and then we play this game and our daughter dances along to the music. It just amazes me she remembered “We will rock you” from the game as we haven’t played it in a week.
It’s just amazing how easy it is for us all to retain information in song form, even at 17 months old.
