Well, guess what? Waking Up is Hard to Do is really worth a listen. No seriously! Stop laughing. It’s actually a really good album. I’m also a little surprised at how
perfect Mr. Sedaka (yes, he warrants a “Mr.”) still sounds some decades
Every track will have you stammering, Wait, I know this song! and marveling at how
well they work as kids’ songs. Even if your kids don’t know the reference behind Lunch Will Keep Us Together or that the song about watching a father try to assemble a bunch of new toys is actually Where the Boys Are.
not be the most “hip” kids’ CD of the year, but it is a whole lot of
fun for the preschool set and those of us old enough to remember the
originals, even if we’d never admit we know all the words to the original songs. Your kids may even wonder why mom (and grandma) are singing along
to kids’ music like a bunch of groupies. –Christina
Congratulations to lucky winner Kim B, who’ll soon be singing along with Mr. Sedaka!
