Pippipalooza 2012: Preschool Musical

Pippi is now officially 4.

She's had her school-special-snack party, her family-goes-out-to-dinner party and her invite-too-many-friends-to-the-house-for-cake party. She loved every minute -- the rest of us are still recovering.
So while I collect myself enough to be able to write about the festivities and about our Princess Pip, you can entertain yourself with the playlist I used for her CD party favors.

 The Pippipalooza Dance Party Like a Rock Star Mix

1. Big Bang Boom (Part 1) – Big Bang Boom
2. High Five! – They Might Be Giants
3. Get Up and Go – The Biscuit Brothers
4. It Makes You Feel Good – Renee & Jeremy
5. Mahna Mahna – CAKE
6. Molly the Moose – Ira Marlowe
7. I Never Go to Work – They Might Be Giants
8. Stand Up Song – Big Bang Boom
9. The Hoppity Song – John Ondrasik
10. D Is for Drums – They Might Be Giants
11. Drawing – Barenaked Ladies
12. Dance Party – The Biscuit Brothers (Buttermilk)
13. C’mon – Renee & Jeremy
14. Ooh La! Ooh La! – They Might Be Giants
15. No Hands Band – Ray “Walrus” Laughran (on BBB)
16. Big Bang Book (Part 2) – Big Bang Boom

All of these songs (and the albums they came from) are technically kid songs, but they're ones that pass the parent test -- that is, kid songs that even the parents like.

You're welcome.

Note: Referencing this post title, if you haven't seen the Sesame Street "Preschool Musical" sketch, it's worth watching.

  1. Ooooh! Thank you! I was just about to but The Fresh Beat Band's new CD on iTunes. Yes, seriously. Good timing, my friend.

    1. I did almost buy "Shout it out, just like a rock star!" by the Fresh Beats -- mostly because it cracks me up to hear Pippi sing it. But no, dear -- buy these CDs first. If you don't have an TMBG kids music, start there. Then the 2nd Big Bang Boom is my favorite local NC band And Renee & Jeremy's 1st CD is lullaby perfect, but there 2nd (on this list) is much peppier and very cool.

  2. Hello? Imagination Movers? Anyone?

    New CD & DVD just came out and lots of great older stuff on iTunes. Check them out.

    1. Currently rockin out to the Robot Chase Song. Awesome. Send me your recs!


But enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think about me?
