Bridging Generation Gap

♫♪♫  So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don’t, I don’t, don’t know what it is
But I need that one thing  ♪♫♪

Yes, it’s a song from One Direction…the song that I hear everyday. One Direction is a British-Iris boy band that I didn’t know exists if not for RJ. This boy band is RJ’s favorite. I don’t like them but I can nearly memorize their best-known songs because RJ is playing them everyday, over and over.

I suddenly saw my self to RJ. I was madly, deeply in-love with Menudo, the Puerto Rican boy band in the 80’s. I don’t like one direction  (may be because of my age) but I am curious if RJ would like Menudo so I showed her this video…


RJ said Menudo is very unfashionable. What else would I expect? The video was shot in the 80’s…acid washed jeans, shoulder pads, teased hair, etc.

RJ and I have a very big generation gap but it is not a big problem for us because we understand each other. I am trying to be flexible and let her enjoy the present generation while guiding her.


  1. on the contrary my two sons appreciate old music and new ones at the same time, i am not so familiar with the new songs however just like you, i try to appreciate and understand why they like a certain song/music which i find not good hehe
