Are you always looking for new kids music? We seem to be. Most of their tunes get stuck in my head and then make me want to pull my hair out after just a few, "can we listen to that one again?" requests.
When Big Girl was a Little Girl (like 2 or 3 year-old) we discovered Bill Harley. His songs are hilarious, kid appropriate and tops on my list - they don't have the sing-song style voice that can get stuck in your head for days on end.
We recently rediscovered them. My current favorite is about a boy that doesn't want to eat a pea but he wants his ice cream. Somehow it gets stuck up his nose but he says he still has to eat it. It makes me laugh. Like out loud. Every time.
We may even have the video on our itouch. Maybe.
A few days ago Big Girl was getting in the car after swim practice and was going on and on about how she doesn't "win" and I was explaining that its about having fun and that winning is a bonus. When. Like a sitcom moment - should have had our camera rolling cuz you probably think I am making this up - The Love of The Game came on. With the chorus that says:
Sometimes you lose, and sometimes you win
If they knock you down, just get up again
If you’ve done your best, then don’t be ashamed
‘Cause you play for the love of the game
Big Girl totally loves Cool in School. Its pretty cute.
So, if you are looking for something new to listen to in the car, I would seriously suggest Bill Harley. Love him.
Disclosure: I was not compensated in any to provide this post. I just Bill Harley is awesome and I think you will too.
