Yesterday my daughter was riding her bike around the driveway in circles and singing Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire". She knew every freaking word. I'm not a huge fan of Cash, so I'm guessing she listens to it with her dad.

So here's my quandary: am I thrilled that my daughter prefers decent and interesting music (while not a fan, I can appreciate the musical talent and brilliant lyrics that were a hallmark of Cash's style) over the High School Musical and Hannah Montana carp that other girls her age love? Or am I concerned that my daughter knows every word to a song about an all-consuming love that leaves the lover a burnt out husk?

At least she's not singing gansta-rap.

I'm going to pretend she was singing Social Distortion's version of "Ring of Fire."
