- Sad Dads at One Direction
Don’t know why I’m laughing, though – I also have a young daughter. Had a panicked moment recently when she announced “I love One Direction, it’s my favourite music ever!”, but then she started singing “One direction, or another, gonna find ya, find ya…”
Never been more relieved to hear a Blondie song.Posted 3 years ago
Sorry Ben, but that’s true ^^. Good luck mate.
She also likes Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, and her current favourite is They Might Be Giants, so I’ve not lost all hope. Plus she’s four – I’ve got plenty of time to mould her tastes, even though her mother keeps exposing her to Bryan Adams…Posted 3 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Hmmm…. I’ve been twice, and waited outside both times. First time at the O2, that’s not strictly true as i leapt on the tube with my oyster card and camera, legged it to westminster, and did a whistle stop walk up Whitehall, through Covent Garden, had a pint and a coffee, and back for the encores.
Not so easy from Wembley 🙁Posted 3 years agollamaMember
You can try to mould their tastes, you might have some successes, but you ultimately fail.
McFly (no thanks, dropped off/picked up)
Scouting for Girls (likewise)
Pendulum (getting better, went, enjoyed)
X Factor Tour (what?!)
Stone Roses comeback (best choice yet but vetoed due to dad wanting to relive his youth without dependents present)
But she still listens to shytePosted 3 years agokonabunnyMember
Don’t often see They Might Be Giants mentioned anywhere, I’ve been a fan for, gulp, over 20years.

Recently in the car, driving home, my 10 year old daughter wanted to put a local radio station on that pretty much sticks to current charts, I agreed on the basis every second song was mine via my ipod – she didnt like american head charge or alice in chains or even a bit of carcass… cant understand why not.Posted 3 years agoLiferSubscriber

Yeah… good luck with that 😉
Despite trying to culture the eldest with my sniffy, condescending, 6 Music-snobbish ways (with no help whatsoever from Mrs Binners, who conspires with her, and has even introduced hair-rock into things) the only success I’ve had is with this….

Hatter Jnr is showing promise, Def Leppard was on the radio recently and he loudly declared, “No, not rock, not noisy, need Sabbath” he’s not even two and a half yet. *proud*
Knowing my luck he’s going to rebound spectacularly and end up into Smooth Rn’B but so far so good.
Oh, and they Might be Giants = Quality! Great kids music for the few occasions where Black Sabbath isn’t entirely appropriate.Posted 3 years agomindmap3Member
It’s things like this that make me glad we’re having a boy…at least we (I) should get to escape rubbish like One Direction. Although there’e plenty of opportunity for him to like rubbish,

Hopefully the music he’s been subjected before birth will have rubbed off (pretty similar…’Tallica, Pantera, Slayer, Shadows Fall etc).Posted 3 years ago40mpgSubscriber
My Chemical Romance / Greenday
A bit Screamo for a while
Back to decent rock stuff (a little bit modern for me but OK)
She’s now going ‘retro’ and even came home with a Smiths LP (yes vinyl) the other day.
So there is hope for you OP 😀
(She saw Gerard Way not-so-secret gig at the Wedgewood Rooms last night is now at Reading Festival – sadly no dad required)Posted 3 years agoPrinceJohnMember
I’m a married Man Sir, I take that comment on the chin. Had I not been married I may have asked to take a peek at her tits though
You took a girl to a steps gig, who is attractive, & had absolutely no chance of copping off with her?
What on earth were you thinking?Posted 3 years agoSandwichSubscriber
I tried this with my eldest daughter. You will not win.
You guide and eventually they see the light. Early teenage girls are a separate species that have a strong herd instinct. Plus as dad you are not cool evah! Then at about 21 they realise you may know something after all.
There is hope.Posted 3 years agomattjgSubscriber
I have a 3 year old, I attempted early intervention by playing her Hendrix, Queen, Floyd etc in the womb, via my phone laid on her mummy’s tummy.
But now her mum’s undone all my good work by watching Mamma Mia with her, she loves it.
& the other day we were watching some corn-fest Eurovision and she said “daddy I want to be that lady”

My mate had to take his daughter to see Little Mix 😆
Don’t mind 1D, fairly inoffensive, seem to know they are in a magic bubble that will burst one day, and quite a bit of their stuff was written by McFly, so just imagine it with guitars and it sounds a lot better.Posted 3 years ago
