Released in 1980, Raffi’s “Baby Beluga” album is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary! I have memories of going on road trips in the 80’s with my cousins and listening to Raffi’s music. And what timeless music it is, as I listened to the same music many years later when my kids were young. I consider myself a #BelugaGrad!
It is funny how much this music stuck with me over the years. I still know so many songs from the album, from the title track to “Oats and Beans and Barley” and “Over in the Meadow”. I felt like when I bought Raffi’s albums for my kids, the words came right back to me.
