Oh Daddy

Here’s a flashback for Fathers’ Day: back when the Mall Diva was 2-3 years old her mom worked second shift and the little diva and I spent a lot of afternoons and evenings together, often watching Duck Tales and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. One of our most favorite things, however, was to watch the Adrian Belew “Oh Daddy” video, which featured Belew’s own 11-year-old daughter, Audie, singing and dancing. I’m betting Mall Diva can still sing every word of that song.

Belew is a fabulous musician who has played on some of my favorite songs from Frank Zappa, The Talking Heads and Peter Gabriel. There’s no song, however, that will stir my emotions as much as “Oh Daddy.”
