Hear Dave, Alsy and Marty speak

Over on the audio page there are now quite a few snippets of audio that I originally compiled for a podcast. The podcast never got made but the audio is well worth a listen. Many interesting facts and opinions are aired.

...and eloquently too.

On the earliest song, it reminds me of a conversation I had the other day with Lynsey about the fact that so many songs of that ilk are unsuitably dark in their subject matter if you put them under a microscope. Of course, that one is also educational in that it covers the whole of Darwinism in one bitesized hypochondriachal chunk.

I like the image of a three year old David being excited by that song. The last line not included in the snippet is "she's dead of course"

A lot of nursery rhymes treat death in that matter of fact way. Ring of roses, we all fall down. When the bow breaks, the cradle will fall. All the king's horses etc couldn't put humpty together again. It seems folkloric that the first lesson of life is to teach your child to die.

Have I mentioned that one of my few pre-school childhood memories is the moment in which I tried to work out when I began and realised I probably ended much the same way? I've sometimes wondered how common a memory that is, but haven't got around to taking a poll.

Did you have many difficult children's questions in your former life, glee?
