13 Children’s Songs I Love

It seems like children’s music is 90 percent of what I listen to these days. And let me tell you, I’m familiar with the good, the bad and the ugly. This week, I decided to focus on the good. I could easily have listed my 13 favorite Wiggles song or my 13 favorite Laurie Berkner songs, but I tried to mix it up a little. I linked if I could find the songs.

1. The Wiggles – Shake Your Sillies Out
2. Laurie Berkner – Victor Vito
3. Barney – If All The Raindrops
4. Parachute Express – Butterfly
5. Greg and Steve – The Freeze Song
6. LazyTown – Bing Bang
7. The Wiggles – Georgia’s Song
8. Laurie Berkner – Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz)
9. Sesame Street – I Don’t Want To Live on the Moon (sung by Ernie)
10. Marlo Thomas – Free to be you and me (Remember this from the 70’s?!!)
11. Go Diego Go Theme Song
12. Parachute Express - Dance Puppet Dance (or if you're in Gymboree, it's Dance Gymbo Dance)
13. Michael Jackson Roberta Flack - When We Grow Up

Thanks for the music ideas. I'm always looking for some that I like as much as they do. If you ever get a chance to hear the CD's from the Music Together classes, I highly recommend those. I'm glad I found your blog, I know how lonely and crazy being a stay-at-home-mom can be! I'll be back!

I love this list. We have a 19 mos old - so your list has opened up a whole world to me. Tho - we do have the Marlo Thomas album . . .

My TT list is up as well. All about chickens this time round.

So glad you made this list! I'm running out of good tunes for the van , but now I've got something to go on! Great list! My kids're gonna love 'em!

I was going to make a playlist out of all of the songs I encountered thirteening... something tells me I'm going to get some strange looks when people hear what I've got on! :) happy TT, mine's up!

Ack - I can't believe you have a Barney song on the list!!!

But having Bing Bang here makes up for it!

Okay, actually Bing Bang and "Free to be you and me" were the only ones I knew on the list....
I wonder if Free To Be You and Me is on DVD. Remember those round-squishy head baby puppets? What a great memory!

Mo's up on me - I didn't know ANY of these songs! I told you you were a good mommy. I let my kids listen to U2, Van Halen, John Mellencamp.

My daughter loves Alice Cooper - snort!

Lisa said...

Great list!

My toddler sings the Dribbly Dell (?) Singers song from Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends ALL THE TIME. You think he's just mumbling and then La la lala LADYBUG, Do do dodo Doodlebug. It's the cutest thing.

His favorite Wiggles song (and therefore ours) is Rock A Bye your Bear.

Man, I'm feeling old. I only knew one of the songs on your list. My kids grew up too fast.

I guess the good news is the positive messages found in music for small children.

Christie said...

Crazy Working Mom said...

We love If All the Raindrops!
It's such a fun song.

What about Dora's "We did it"!

Those darn Rescue Pets are pretty funny too. Teamwork...

I love Bumblebee and Free To Be You And Me... although I have to confess most of the children´s music I know is German, what means -> Category: The bad and the ugly =)


The list sounds like fun. I haven't heard any of these songs. :-)
