Monday’s Music

Back when Nolan was a littler version of his current self and I stayed home with him, we would go on bike rides whenever the weather permitted. I’d strap him in to the child’s seat on my bike and take off for a few-mile journey on the tree-lined streets of northwestern Connecticut.

I attached an iPod to my arm – a 2nd Generation model – and let the music play without headphones so he could hear it as well. Often times, it was The Bronx, my favorite band, or Mariachi el Bronx, a mariachi version of my favorite band. Sometimes it was Eric Church or Carrie Underwood, my and Lindsay’s favorite country artists, respectively.

He knew I liked The Bronx and would ask for it by name, well, “The Bonx,” so I was more than happy to oblige.

So, that’s the direction I’m taking this Monday’s Music. The Bronx‘s “Style Over Everything,” as I wear my khaki chinos and polo. Far from stylish and the Valley, but that’s besides the point.

  1. Hey there! That’s some good music! I’m surprised I’ve never heard of The Bronx. It’s exactly the kind of music I listened to as a young man, when I was into skateboarding and such. The harmony in the chorus is killer. I’ll be tracking them down in the future!!
