Music can make you happy. It can make you think. It can make you feel confident. And, of course, it can make you want to move! Here are our music picks for 2011. We have a little rock, a little jazz, a little Kermit the Frog and even — as random as it sounds — a little Abigail Adams. Isn’t music great?
“Tumble Bee” by Laura Veirs Have you ever heard of such traditional songs as “Little Lap-Dog Lullaby” and “King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O”? Now you will! Veirs, who is known for her adult albums, has remade old folk songs that most people have probably never heard. These are beautiful bedtime songs, sure to send you into dreamland with images of foxes, elephants, horses and starlit nights.
“Strange Dees, Indeed” by the Deedle Deedle Dees Are these guys history teachers or rock stars? Both! Be careful, this totally fun CD just may teach you something about such historical people as Mohandas Gandhi and Marie Curie. Using a variety of instruments and sounds, the Deedle Deedle Dees combine humor, history and rock-and-roll like no other!
