My son always liked the Animaniacs. He also liked Lynyrd Skynyrd. Go figure.

As a kid and on long car journeys I remember enjoying Sting, the Eurythmics, Queen, the Travelling Wilbury's and various jazz albums by Martin Taylor. That and the audio books of Road Dahl I didn't care so much for any of the classical stuff they put on though...bloody Lindsay String Quartet and Schubert's Death and the Maiden, I always got really annoyed when that was put on because it was so boring, I wanted stuff I could sing along to
What the hell are you screamin' for? Every five minutes there's a bomb or somethin'! I'm leavin! bzzzz! Now with website! under construction.

Hi Jeff,
My suggestion is "The Wonky Donkey" by Craig Smith/book illustrated by Kat Cowley
My (now) 6 and 4 year olds loved it!
My sister got it for my youngest for her 3rd birthday I think.
It was great fun listening to it and reading through the book with them!
Apparently New Zealand children's song of the year in 2008.
Of course they go through things so quickly at this age I haven't listened to it for a little while now.

I grew up listening to Nirvana, Santana, Dire Straits, Paul Weller and others.

As I play(ed) these near-constantly, my parents (who had introduced me to such music) have found they don't enjoy such music so much now.

Be careful.

The Curious George soundtrack from Jack Johnson is good. I even like it.

Though I've never attended, I know Troutfishing In America was doing tours which included a matinee kid-friendly show and a night show for the adults. Their songs often include some comically entertaining imagery.

Ross loves to sing Irish, Scottish, and Scandinavian songs, as well as old American traditional and popular songs. He has performed on radio, television and at festivals, and works regularly in schools teaching the songs and folk dances that he has collected over the years.
