More Number Based Friday Fun




Take a looky see at 7 8 9 by Barenaked Ladies. Neat little ditty. Neat little animation.
It's rare to find music that both parents and young children can enjoy together. On long car journeys there are only so many times that you can listen to "The Wheels On The Bus" and "Goosey Goosey Gander" without wanting to poke your eyes out with a rusty spoon. And that's just the opinion of my two year old daughter.

Maybe I'm a big kid at heart, but I think there's a whole new genre of music starting to emerge of well crafted, catchy music that can appeal to both adults and kids. Until recently, children's music was all about some cheesey session singers warbling their way through age-old nursery rhymes. That's all changing now. Barenaked Ladies have released Snacktime, a corking collection of original children's songs, and Dan Zanes ex-frontman of 1980's US college radio favourites The Del Fuegos has re-invented himself as a pioneer of "family music".

Rumour has it that Slipknot will be following suit shortly.

  1. It's hard to believe that "Snacktime" has some of the best Barenaked Ladies songs, but it does- simple as that. I would also recommend this album to anyone, whether they have kids or not- you can't help but smile and just have a good time.
