I want the listener to be able to sing along with these songs. They are mostly uptempo because that is what I like. Towards the end of the CD they mellow out a bit and who knows, you might then need a nap. Meant to be enjoyed by all ages but starting at near kinda almost maybe 3 years old or possibly very astute and promising 2 to 65 year olds. Sometimes comical or whitty but mostly fun I included lots of bits of sounds and musical themes to be enjoyed over and over such as common childhood experiences as growing bigger, skinning one's knees, craving junk food, etc. There are also some just-for-fun selections, such as 'Hungry Slippery Mr. Fish' and 'Conga Line.' The musical types are rock, country, dance, doo wop and pop. Intruments are: drums, bass, keyboards, saxaphone, harmonica, guiro, shakers, fiddle, acoustic and electric guitars, clarinet, flute, whistling, thigh slappin' and lots of harmonies.
