“An oldie (relatively), but a goodie (quite so, considering). Just remember not to pay until you get to the other side.”

After explaining to my 5 year-old that people are generally buried in the ground when they die, she surmised that heaven must therefore be under the ground. I told her that her beliefs align with the Ancient Greek concept of Hades, the underworld. This led to a retelling of the myth of Charon the boatman, which led to her introduction to this song. I love this parenting lark!

This is a classic, but thanks to the continuing fuckwiticity of the YouTube Brains Trust, once again I am unable to bring you the original music video.   1

Not entirely sure how this popped into our heads, but today we're going with "Don't Pay the Ferryman" by Chris de Burgh.

First heard this on a beach in Kardamena and it takes me nicely back there again every time
