Soul Meets Body

I was quite moved by my birthday gift from my little son in July, and I found your comments about him being a potential rock star to be, in a word, awesome. As did my Mom, who then relayed them to almost every individual she came in contact with that day. There is no pride like Grandparent Pride.

And I wanted to share this little treat as well.

Some of you may already know the indie rock band Death Cab for Cutie. Originally from a city north of Seattle, I am a big fan of their song list. One of my favorites is a song titled Soul Meets Body. If you haven't heard it, here is your chance.






And because I am already a fan of DC4C, and of course, a huge fan of the budding rock star in my own house, the following performance is one of my favorite of all time. Talk about a Rock and Roll heart.








Have a great Friday.

Very cute. How does he do on Guitar Hero?

Nuture it, wish I had started my kids younger on instruments.

Jules said...

Death Cab Meets Cutie is one of my ALL time favorite bands!! And now I'm adding your son to that list!

leigh said...

That is heartbreakingly sweet! I love DCFC as well. Have you heard of the band Grandaddy? If not, you should check them out. They are indie rock goodness!

I know I am cruel and evil but I feel it my sworn duty to remind you JennyM that what is cute today is going to evolve to become a teenager soon enough.

Then the real guitars and drums and the 100000000000000000 megawatt amps come out to play.

The Peach Tart said...

JennyMac, I think you have a budding rock star there. He's already got the moves on the fret board of the guitar, a good voice and that adorable smile. Yes, I think he's destined to break a lot of those groupies hearts.

Little Ms Blogger said...

If he's like this now, imagine in 15 years....

The Savage said...

Does Mini-Mac need a roadie?

Hit 40 said...

Your cutie and supersperm need to hit the road!!! Supersperm can play guitar and saxophone. He will let your son be the singer which will all knew is where the fame and money is really at.

I will have to ponder a good band name for them. Now we just need a drummer?? Anyone with a drummer out there for us???

Hit 40 said...

Oh NO!!!!!!!!! When did comment approval start??? So sad :-( What happened?

Amanda said...

That is friggin awesome!! Our kids should jam together! Love the song, too.

Also, I have an award for you waiting over at Cheap Wine and Cookies!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

I don't think anyone has ever played their guitar hero guitar better than your little dude!!

vicki archer said...

So cute, xv.

La Belle Mere UK said...

Impressive! And the life of a rock star, maybe he'll be on Cribs!

Dustjacket Attic said...

Gosh I think he was just warming up, he was really gettin' into it. Pretty darn gorgeous too.

Love the cat popping it's head up halfway.

Have a great one,

DC4C doesn't hold a candle to your son! Precious!

Nothing better than a goy with a guitar in his lap. May he never put it down!

Nonflammable said...

Lisa Anne said...

That is so cool. How the heck did he remember the lines that he did remember. LOL

La La La Leah said...

Ah thank you for a nice start to the day! I love that song and your son is awesome! Have a great weekend.

Stereos and Souffles said...

Love how the cat is in the background completely ignoring the live concert.

Tammy Howard said...

I've got a drummer and a bassist, if he digs older women...

Barbaloot said...

Wow! He's gonna be one of the boys in jr. high/high school that rocks out on guitar and all the girls love. Good luck with that:)

McVal said...

ADORABLE! I thought the cat in the background was notes floating up for a second and I was wondering how you did that...
That was so sweet of him to play that for you!
LOL! My son loved all my music and went to Irish band concerts with me getting autographs from the band and such. Then one day he asked... are these guys famous... I mean really famous? When he found that his other friends didn't listen to this music, he dropped it like a rock.
Bummer! I loved it more when he was this age and sang along with Sarah Brightman with me...

Simone said...

I am clapping my hands over here......let's hear it for the Prince of Georgia!!! He is absolutely adorable :)

Kristina P. said...

Oh my gosh! I want to kidnap him!

nifer said...

I CAN'T BELIEVE that he knows all the words! Ah! Too cute!!!

Great song BTW... never really got into DC4C, but I might give them another shot...

Mrs Montoya said...

Dead cute. My princess could be his groupie ;) Thanks for a super fun post. He rocks!!

Amanda said...

What a handsome little guy! Such talent!

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

I think we have a future contestant for American Idol, America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance all built into one with that Luke of yours. Or maybe he can just take Paula's place as a judge. Wouldn't that be adorable? Almost as cute as him.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

It now makes since, this crazy women came up to me my last visit to Seattle. On and on about a rock star ... now I get it .. LOL :)

I'm loving this song and that video is really cool. At first I thought it was bullfrogs puffing up ... :)

He is too cute and yup going to break hearts!

JenJen said...

Constructive Attitude said...

Melissa B. said...

Is his last name Springsteen?

Caleb's Co. said...

Way too cute for words!

Southern Champagne Wishes said...

I first discovered Death Cab For Cutie on The O.C. I had a major crush on the character of Seth Cohen who, if you haven't seen it, was a huge fan.

He is adorable! He is going to be such a heartbreaker - you're going to have to watch out for all those girls! And what awesomely cool parents he has that listen to such great music!

The Blonde Duck said...

Precious!

Leah Rubin said...

Quite a bit of talent in that young man-- and his good looks won't hurt him either!

Little Ms J said...

Ohmygod, he's delicious! What a cutie!

WhisperingWriter said...

Too cute!!

My name is PJ. said...

Eyes with a spark of mischief; a smile that melts hearts; AND he can actually sing!!! With those gene pools, you should have done more to populate the earth, JM!

I see a not-to-distant future of panties, g-strings and diapers thrown up on stage!

Theta Mom said...

O.M.G. That's all I have to say! Simply adorable!!!

sheila said...

Oh, you've got SUCH a beautiful son! He's so cute!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing that clip!

PinkBow said...

oh i just love this band!

Sashindoubutsu said...

So cute! You should be very proud of him. Really adorable. He's got to watch this when he's older :)

Cathi said...

He is so adorable!!

Deborah Godin said...

Wow, what a great post, for a several of reasons:
1) that little rock star is TCFW (too cute for words) and obviosusly very musical.
2) I have never heard DC4C before. I'm not sure what I was expecting (probably something more head-banger-ish given the name)but not this. Is this typical?
3) That is flat out one of the coolest, cleverest videos I've ever seen!

Two Normal Moms said...

My heart just melted!
And I love DCfC...

ladytruth said...

You should seriously consider a career in raising offspring, you obviously have quite a talent for it ;)

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

Such soulful guitar gesticulating! And what a connection to his audience. Lock your doors, friend, for I have totally met my crew-cutted Guitar Hero!

Eva Gallant said...

I see mini-Mac heading up the American Idol tour in a dozen years or less!

One Sassy Girl said...

Oh he really is THAT precious. And I adore Death Cab. Sadly, my intro came via The OC. Really, I just admitted that.

alissa said...

oh mylanta thats adorable! what a cutie - rocker in the making

K a b l o o e y said...

Your tot's prodigious memory and evident guitar chops are exceeded only by his cuteness. Oh my goodness, that's a great home movie.

Vivienne said...

But I can't hear him over Simon and Garfunkel....
(He sure is cute, though...)
