MUSIC REVIEW: Free to Be…You and Me

  If you grew up in the 70s, you’re familiar with “Free to Be…You and Me“. It was a project by Marlo Thomas created to “encourage post-1960s gender neutrality, saluting values such as individuality, tolerance, and comfort with one’s identity. A major thematic message is that anyone—whether a boy or a girl—can achieve anything.”   It is an and featuring songs […]

MUSIC REVIEW: Stevesongs–Marvelous Day

As I write this I’m listening to this fabulous cd for the first time in awhile and I’m enjoying it like a kid! Seriously, when I’m having a less than stellar day, I can listen to the title song “Marvelous Day” and find my happy place and suddenly the day isn’t so gloomy looking anymore. I am very particular about […]

MUSIC REVIEW: Wee Rock-Silly Sammy Sings

This is another cd I was sent for review…This one is really fun! Very well done, I think! My favorite is the “Bubbles” song…My daughter adores “Harry the Tickle Monster” and has asked for it over and over again. I am always pleasantly surprised when I really like a new cd like this because I get sooo many sent to […]

LOVE this cd!!! Music from around the world for children! Sung in all different languages. We’ve listened to this one in the car so many times I’m surprised it hasn’t worn out!

MUSIC REVIEW: Veggie Tunes 2

MUSIC REVIEW: Veggie Tunes 2

I actually have not yet heard Veggie Tunes 1, sorry! 🙂 But this one is very good! This was my first exposure to Veggie Tales…which are Christian computer generated vegetable characters. Starring Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber, these guys are just hysterical!! For the most part it enforces basic family values that we all want for our kids–honesty, […]

MUSIC REVIEW: Disney Babies Lullaby

MUSIC REVIEW: Disney Babies Lullaby

I’m not a Disney fan. I think their movies are way too violent and intense for little kids and (other than their music), there’s not a whole lot of redeeming quality to anything they produce (although as an adult I do enjoy their movies for myself.)…and don’t get me started on their commercialism which is way beyond ridiculous overkill…BUT, their […]

MUSIC REVIEW: Rachel Buchman-Sing a Song of Seasons

I found Rachel’s cd purely by accident…I bought it on ebay thinking it was someone else’s cd (same album name, who knew?) I am SO glad I stumbled upon it!! Its just awesome!! Rachel sings very simple, child-like songs with little or no accompaniment. Usually just an acoustic guitar or maybe some unobtrusive background percussion (not drums). Very simple, very […]
