What we're listening to around our house

And in the car.

Beethovan's Wig and Beethovan's Wig 2. Super silly lyrics set to well-known classical music. Muffin Man looooooves it and asks for it by name EVERY. TIME. we get in the car. "I want BAYTOWGAN'S Wig". Excellent albums (particularly the first one). I warn you though, you will get them stuck in your head.

Anyways, I've used his love of these albums to introduce Disney's Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 to him. He loves anything that doesn't over-do the thunder-and-lightning and volcanos. Not so much into The Sorcerer's Apprentice (too scary) or the dying dynosaurs (ditto). He loves the cavorting animals, flowers, and fairies on both DVD's.

I heard a review of these cds on NPR a couple of weeks back. Hey, have you heard of Sandy and Caroline Peyton, folk singers who have several great kids' songs? Older and Younger Daughters both loved them, the tunes were great, the lyrics were great, and I never minded having them stuck in my head. Phantom Scribbler's in-laws gave them to my kids.

I think I'm going to have to share those movies with Angry Boy (skipping Night on Bald Mountain and the Scorcerer's Apprentice, of course).

YT, I hadn't heard of those folk singers (even though I come from a very folk-y background) I'll look them up and put 'em in my next Amazon order.

APL, I love the Skip to Next Chapter feature on DVDs. No more scary bits.

I don't know how to do a trackback ping, so I'm posting here that I just wrote a post inspired by this one.

BTW, it's Beethoven, not Beethovan. :)
