Rave: Dancing Barenaked

This may not be quite the post you expected based on the title, huh? I was prompted to post this while watching Aidan bust a move right here in front of the computer--on the large area rug where apparently there is an unspoken rule amongst the kids that all or most of the dancing in the house must take place. Of course, this causes lots of collisions and major problems when the fast dancing and/or break dancing flails around the rug in several different directions.
Anyway, I recently found out that Barenaked Ladies put out a kids album in May and downloaded it without thinking twice. I haven't been disappointed. It's a great kids album--fun rhythms and creative lyrics for the kids without being obnoxious for the adults. Plus, lots of funny puns and jokes that the kids don't even get. I really like the song "Crazy ABC's"--it lists the alphabet with non-obvious spellings like A is for Aisle, G for gnarly, J for jalapeno, P for pneumonia, etc. And if your kids like to get riled up while dancing like mine do, just turn on Popcorn song and wait about 20 seconds. Whoa, baby. Although I have to admit, I do feel a little creepy asking my kids if they want anything containing the term 'Barenaked' in the title.

If you want a copy, let me know and I'll hook you up. But once again, just don't tell the Feds. Jeremy says the law is "unclear" on this, but I don't want to have to get something dry cleaned for any court appearances anytime soon.

And next time I use this post title, there will be actual photos of barenaked dancing. Perhaps I'll pay Alex $2 to dump cold water on Jeremy while he's in the shower...stay tuned.

I've heard a few of those songs and loved them. If you like that you'll like the They Might Be Giants 123 and ABC albums.
