Barenaked Ladies Snacktime Arrived!

Day 6My CD arrived, and it is oh so excellent. Talk about some awesome children’s music! Seriously, the Barenaked Ladies are absolutely amazing. Each one of them is a dad, and between the band members they have eleven children. Clearly this album was for them as much as it was for the fans (or the fans children). The lyrics to the songs are all catchy and creative, and very funny. The music is fitting, upbeat and entertaining. Check out some lyrics:

I like my big sister
But I don’t want to wear her cost
It may be black,
It may fit perfect,
But you and I both know it’s a girl’s coat

Now I can handle some hand me downs
But shirts and sandals are out of bounds
Balls and games and such I don’t mind
But a coat is over the line.

I can’t wait to listen to it tomorrow while playing with Alex.

Barenaked Ladies “Snacktime”

One of my favorite bands of all time made a kids CD! Just like Baby Einstein has been linked to children learning fewer words (which doesn’t surprise me at all) it would make sense that typical music for children would limit language development.

Check out a video of one of the songs:

Barenaked Ladies “Snacktime” will be released on May 6th. I just pre-ordered a copy from Amazon because, well, how could I not? I have a strong aversion to most kids music, and really believe that allowing children to listen to real music will be better for their intellectual growth.

I can’t wait to get my copy!
