dd is 26 months and LOVES her new Raffi cds...dh can't stand them, so we only listen when he's at work. I think they are fun...good for dancing, lots of silly lyrics.

DS tolerates some of our music, mostly just the slow/calm stuff like John Denver. We also have Jack Johnson's Curious George Soundtrack, many of the Putumayo CDs and lots of kids folk, and DS listens to them and likes them okay as background music. But what he REALLY grooves to and requests constantly is (gulp, I hate to admit this): Bert & Ernie's Greatest Hits.

I guess my kid is just not as "cool" as other kids - LOL! Some of the songs drive me insane, but the lyrics make him laugh. And I admit there are actually quite a few great songs that even I enjoy (i.e. "I don't want to live on the moon" makes me smile every time).

He also really loves a compilation CD called "All About Me (My First Learning Adventure)" and one that my sister burned for us called "Cedarmont Kids Toddler Tunes." There are a couple religious songs on that one, and we aren't particularly religious, but that doesn't mean much to a 2-year-old. He just likes the songs!

When dd1 was a toddler, her FAVORITE band was the Ghetto Monks!!! OMG, she listened to it every day, and fell asleep to it at night. We finally had to stop because some of the lyrics weren't what you'd want your sweet little one to repeat in the grocery store. But she did love them. We have darling video of her rocking out to that cd before she could even stand. She'd sit and rock back and forth.

For actual kid music, I love Tom Hunter ("The Tape of Our Record" is fantastic!) and Red Grammar ("Teaching Peace" and "Hello World" are both incredible!!!!!!!) I swear to you that they are all must haves.

At the moment DS is really into Pink, Fergie, Gwen Stefani and Anika Moa. Other than that anything with some drums and guitar! We listen to the radio alot (rather than CD's) so I'm guessing that's why he's so into pop music!

He does love the Gypsy Kings, but that might be because I get up and shake my booty (literally!) with him.

It's complicated.

Well, mine listens to what I listen to and I've noticed she likes traditional music and disco. However we do have the They Might Be Giants' Here Come the ABCs and she does like that. Peter, Paul, and Mommy is very cute and pleasant for everyone to listen to, with some very funny lyrics.

It's not that the stay-at-home-parent gets to stay home with the kids. The kids get to stay home with a parent. Lucky Mom to DD1 (4 y) and DD2 (18 mo), Wife to Mercenary Dad

Our fave kid music is Dan Zanes. Hands down.

But my kids also like: Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, Dropkick Murphy's, etc. Pretty much everything we listen to.

Beatles--and they have some pretty silly lyrics too. DS loves the Beatles and they're diverse enough for silly music, lullabies and driving tunes. He loves Yellow Submarine.

Anything! Except techno. Which is funny, because that's what I made him listen to in the womb, so to speak...

My almost 3-year old and 20 month old really love Primus, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Coldplay. My 8 year old was a big fan of the Germs when he was a LO.

THANK YOU, it is an honour to be able to present art and music that helps to inspire young minds. I am the artist of the 'Sweet Potato' painting in the Noogin video segment titled Sweet Potato song. My brother is the creator percussionist/composer who performed the piece. His work is filled with much inspiration and we are very pleased with your appreciation of Sweet Potato song. If you like, please inform Nickelodeon if you would like to see more/hear more of this wonderful music and art.







Happy New Year!

My 2 year old DD seems to like Gwen Stefani. Her favorite song right now is "Sweet Escape." She likes singing the "whoo-whoo" part. I bought the CD just for her and it's the first CD I've bought in probably 10 years.

Probably won't be too much help, but my 2 year olds favorites right now are Ozomatli and Gogol Bordello. Not exactly your average kids music. He likes Jack Johnson and They Might Be Giants, too. Pretty much anything with a beat.
