Playlist 4/3/10

Happy Easter! This week on Ages 3 and Up! we celebrated spring just a little bit more. We played perennial fave, “Tubby the Tuba.” Listened to vintage Easter songs, and paid homage to an egg who deserves remembrance this time of year (that’s right… Humpty Dumpty!). We also played lovely songs about horses, in honor of the opening of Keeneland’s spring meet.

The “Hip-Hop Humpty Dumpty” song we played comes from the album pictured above, Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer’s Banjo to Beatbox. It’s really a VERY interesting album, combining bluegrass with beatbox, as implied by the title. Definitely worth a listen!

Twink– “Hoppity Jones”- Twink
Frances England– “Spring Has Sprung”- Family Tree
Brian Vogan– “Spring”- Little Songs
Ratboy Jr.- “Dirt”- Smorgasbord
Beethoven’s Wig– “Whistling Happily”- Beethoven’s Wig 3
John Thomas Johnson and Annette Funicello– “Tubby the Tuba”- Tubby the Tuba
Rosemary Clooney– “My Choc’lat Rabbit”- v/a Kiddie Records Weekly 2009 (Disc 1)
Peter Pan Singers and Orchestra– “The Bunny Hop”- Do the Hokey Pokey and the Bunny Hop
Mervin Shiner– “Egbert the Easter Egg”- v/a Kiddie Records Weekly 2009 (Disc 1)
The Speks– “Humpty Dumpty”- Sing Along Songs From Glasses Island
Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer with Christylez Bacon– “Hip-Hop Humpty Dumpty”-Banjo to Beatbox
Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem– “Tinny”- Ranky Tanky
Sarah Lee Guthrie & Family– “Oni’s Ponies”- Go Waggaloo
Cerys Matthews– “White Horses”- v/a Music For the Young At Heart
Banjos for Babes– “Old Kentucky Home”- Volume 1: Classic Children’s Songs

We also played this- the new children’s album from Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem. Ranky Tanky features some great original tracks and some really good Americana style covers of classic kids’ songs, including: “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out,” “The Green Grass Grows All Around,” “Purple People Eater,” “Kee-Mo, Ky-Mo (The Magic Song),” and “Morningtown Ride.” Highly recommended.

Have a great week!
