Must-watch video: 10-month-old baby cries tears of joy at sound of mother's singing

She's was only ten months old when this video was taken. Her reaction is priceless...

This follows on from a report from Finland that babies remember music which they heard in the womb. It has long been recognised that music and its appreciation is something which is learned at a very young age.
This is a story which relates to myself:-
When I was very young there was no TV but we did have a radio and my mother would switch it on during the day. She told me that I ran crying to her saying "Mummy, Mummy, It's that Jessie woman". I wanted her to turn the radio off because a singer called Jessie Matthews was singing on the radio and I could not stand her voice. I hated it! What exactly was it that I hated? She had one of those wobbly voices that does not hit the note cleanly, clearly and precisely but wobbles all around it. I hated such voices then and I have never, in 79 years, changed my opinion of such singers!
Unfortunately there is such a lady who sings in the church which I attend and she thinks that she is the bee's knees! I still hate those voices...but I don't hate the person, I must hasten to add!

I am not sure those are tears of joy at all. Its a sad song and its tone is sad. The baby is crying because of sadness. Its why his mother has to comfort him at the end. I don't like it. This is a special and sensitive baby. His mom needs to sing happy songs. He has the rest of his life to suffer the bitter harvest of the World.
