Sing, Sing A Song, Sing Out Loud, Sing Out Strong!

We need some new music in our house.

Froggy loves to dance and this little soul sister has some rhythm.

Any ideas on great CD's, songs, types of music for a 14-month-old? So far, she seems to like Afro-funk, Soul, Cuban, and even some R & B (not my fave). But I am open to anything.

Please help! Any ideas on new music? Who are your favorites?

My Favorite Songs

Goodnight Irene - Leadbelly
Try a Little Tenderness - Otis Redding
T'Aint Nobody's Bizness If I Do - Bessie Smith
Gimme a Pigfoot - Bessie Smith
Me And Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin
Get It While You Can - Janis Joplin
River - Joni Mitchell
Graceland - Paul Simon
In My Life - The Beatles
Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
Sunshine of Your Love - Cream
Ghost of a Dog and Lost In The Moment- Edie Brickell

Henry adores anything by The Laurie Berkner Band, and the songs are not annoying like a lot of children's music. :)

Thanks Angela, I checked her out on amazon, and she sounds great.

Have you heard Harry Nillson's The Point? Its so great. But I just looked it up on Amazon and its only offered on LP. Bummer. So expensive. if you can find it for less, or digitally remastered, its a good one. In a world of people with pointy heads, this little kid is born without a point. Because of this he's banished to the pointless forest, but of course discovers along the way that being different is cool. Great songs! Beatles-ish.

Bowieszelda, yes, I have heard of it. My stepdaughter LOVED this when she was a wee one. She has the movie on VHS, but the soundtrack would be awesome. I'll look around for it. It's one of those things you never see at regular stores. Thanks for the info. I had totally forgotten about this.
