Actual phone conversation with my mother last night:

Mom: So what are your plans for the week?
Me: Tomorrow night I'm seeing a concert...
Mom: Who's playing?
Me: Def Leppard and Journey.
Mom: Wow, that's a huge show. Those are both really big bands.
Me: Um… yeah. Can you even name a Journey song?
Mom: Let's see… didn't they do the songs from Rocky?
Me: (surprised) No, but that's close. They sound just like them.
Mom: So who did the Rocky songs?
Me: Survivor.
Mom: Oh. Then what does Journey sing?
Me: "Separate Ways," "Open Arms," "Faithfully," "Lights," "Lovin Touchin Squeezin."
Mom: I don't know them.
Me: Okay, now name a Def Leppard song.
Mom: (confidently) I don't know the names of the songs, but they named their albums Def Leppard I, Def Leppard II, Def Leppard III
Me: No, that's Led Zeppelin.
Mom: Oh. Nevermind.
