I’ve hit 200 posts AND 20,000 hits! WOOHOO! Thanks to all my regular readers who helped make this happen!
To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’m giving away TWO copies of Lunch Money’s latest release, Dizzy.
But first a quick review of this alternative/eclectic CD also known as indie rock for kids…
Lunch Money’s collection of songs introduces kids to a variety of styles of music that parents can easily enjoy too. From bluegrass to rock-a-billy to rock ballads, samples of all styles develop music appreciation in young listeners.
More than new adaptations to familiar children’s songs, these artists write songs from a child’s perspective and imagination. The tunes get into your head and parents may find themselves singing the melodies all day. But unlike other children’s performers, it’s o.k. if another mom or dad hears you humming these tunes. You could easily fool another parent into liking these songs.
My favorite song, It Only Takes One Night to Make a Balloon Your Friend, teaches children how to care for balloons. Lunch Money breathes life to inanimate balloons and instructs children how to treat them like pets or a new friend.
The melody of At the River soothes listeners by building imagery that forces them to float along a river with each note.
Wake Up, World explains spring in simple terms. With childlike wonder, they coax a barren world to begin to bloom so they can play outside in a colorful, friendly world again.
Many of the songs are a comical play on words that may go over younger fans’ heads but older fans will find themselves chuckling out loud as they listen. 5’7” explains how the band sees eye to eye because they are all the same height. Then, Ate Too Much of My Favorite Food combines alliteration and bouncy beats when naming favorite foods.
Of course, no children’s music collection is complete without a music and movement song. Dizzy, the title track, encourages children to spin and dance to a rock-a-billy beat. This toe-tapping tune will have children twisting and spinning until they drop.
Are You a Rabbit? will also have children hopping, stopping and moshing to a punk beat by mimicking many of their favorite animals and objects.
My girls and I have loved listening to Lunch Money. We can’t wait to dance dizzily when they come to Tampa!
