There's been quite a bit written about this comp in the blogosphere already, back since Devember even, but since this here blog is about kids' music or rather, music we can all enjoy, I gots to cover it. See You On The Moon is another one of these compilations created for kids, by adults who assemble cool indie bands together and have them make, or cover, a song for the kiddles. This one comes to us from Paper Bag Records.
There has been a lot of talk about how bad the Broken Social Scene cover of "Puff the Magic Dragon" is. People... Puff is a really, really sucky song. No, really. Even Gregory Isaacs' version blew. It's simply not BSS's fault. Anyway, judge for yourself.
