Do you love rock music, but hate the “kid-inappropriate” lyrics? What about rap? Country? Pop? Swing? The new album, Practically Ridiculous, from the Jimmies is just for you. The music is fun and energetic. No two songs sound the same. The variety of styles is stupendous. Each song is uniquely crafted to make you want to sing along. The lyrics are fun and full of ideas and information that kids can relate to on their level. Both you and the kids can agree on this music! It is grown up music with lyrics for the kids! This is the perfect album to listen to in the car while you are traveling together, in the kitchen while you are cooking together or in the living room so you can dance together!
Check out these song titles:
- Mini Van Hot Rod
- Fine Art
- Wash Up
- Every Day’s a Holiday
- Toothless Lament
- The Hook
- Laugh in Any Language
- Tea Party
- Career Day
- Gonna Get a Hamster
- Kids Wanna Rock
Choosing a favorite would be hard. Mini Van Hot Rod will just make you laugh. Bonfire is the first autobiographical song of its kind that I have ever heard. The Toothless Lament uses words like “incisor” correctly and with rhyming words. (We love new vocabulary words!) Laugh in Any Language shares a message of sameness and communication regardless of the language we speak. There are so many great songs on this album!
