Go Fish is a Christian group with the slogan "Great music for kids that won't drive parents bonkers!" They sing fantastic a capella harmonies (usually only using percussion instrumentation), and it's really fun. I'll tell you more about the CDs and DVD we have--click on the pictures or titles to listen to samples of the music! (Ignore the "BUY NOW" part of the pictures--those were the pics I was able to successfully download from their site.)
Superstar is one of their earlier CDs, and it's a classic. Songs such as "The Ten Commandment Boogie" and a jazzed-up version of "Jesus Loves Me" are fun for kids and adults.
Showtime. It starts out with a live version of "Superstar," which begins with a catchy "Na na na" tune. Before Chickie could talk well, she'd say, "Na na!" when she wanted to watch this DVD--sort of confusing, since that was also her way of saying "banana." It's a short DVD, about half an hour--just right for a toddler's attention span. Now I'm introducing Zoodle to it.
Snazzy is another really fun Go Fish CD we have. I particularly enjoy "Hit the Drum," "Get Your Jammies On," and "The Mom Song." Chickie used to ask for this CD by using the first couple of lines of the title track: "Mommy, can we listen to 'Go Fish feelin' kinda snazzy, little rock and roll, little razzle dazzy'?"
It looks like the Go Fish guys have a new CD and a new DVD out, so we may need to buy those...or request them from my parents as a gift (hint, hint!)
I hope some readers will check out Go Fish and find that they like it just as much as we have. Again, please feel free to share your music suggestions in the comments! Thanks for the great suggestions yesterday. We had a late night so I didn't respond to them individually but will try to do so later today.
