When I was pregnant with Kia, I went to my first sit-down concert. It was a sit-down for me because I was 7 months pregnant and HU-GE! It was the Stone Roses......
It also took me a long time to come up with a girl's name I liked. I had a boy's name picked out, but a girl's name was much harder. UNTIL.....I watched an interview with the singer from a Swedish band I liked at the time, Whale. Their singer's name was Cia and I liked it immediately. Change the C to a K, works better in Finland. (FYI.....I had no idea about a car named Kia at the time!) It's just hard to tell your daughter that she's named after a girl who sang the song "Hobo Humpin Slobo Babe"!!
Kia had two favorite songs when she was little. She loved singing the do-do-do-do-do-do parts in Queer by Garbage and she would stand mesmerized in front of the tv when Gwen Stefani and No Doubt were singing "Don't Speak". This was in toddlerhood.
But those are the years when their favorite band became (and still is) the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There have been too many songs she's loved to add here, but this stands out as one of her favorites.
It seems like I was always introducing music to Kia. But as she grew up, she started introducing music to me as well. Two of my favorites, Two Door Cinema Club and Ed Sheeran.
There has been so much music over the years. So many concerts together. Too much to list here. Kia's music taste is so varied. I really love hearing what new stuff she's listening to. She listens to everything from Two Door Cinema Club to K-Pop to Bullet for my Valentine.
