I really wish I'd done a "love songs for children" entry but alas, that's what happens when your kid is sick. You miss entire whole days. So here I am with songs about animals. These songs are some of my daughter's favorites— seriously, you cannot go wrong with the Kinks. "Picture Book" is also a terrific one for the kiddles but hey, it doesn't have anything to do with animals so it ain't here. The Bees track, "Chicken Payback" is a doozy. Please, push back the couch, make tons of room and start dancing like a fool. Then when that one is done you can shimmy and shake to the Specials. Life is swell.
The Kinks, "Animal Farm"
The Bees, "Chicken Payback"
The Specials, "Monkey Man"
Extra special, The Bees "Chicken Payback" video. Giggle fest. You got to watch a commercial first, but it is worth it and totally suitable for the kids. In fact, it may inspire them.
Also, wanted to say THANKS to Shisho's Midge— she wrote me a letter via her Dad, who is not in the band as I suggested. You can see her letter in the comments section. She even shares her favorite bands of late. Go Midge! Go Shisho!
