Texts and Tunes: Beatles Hits For Kids

Somehow the '60s British boy band, The Beatles, has managed to stand the test of time. Having lived through the "American Invasion," baby boomers, many now grandparents, used to scream and even cry at the site of the bowl cut lads. Now, their spawn can enjoy the legacy of the pop band, too.

The Bingo Kids Sing Beatles Hits for Kids ($15) on a CD featuring the 15 sing-along-songs such as "She Loves You," "Ob-La-Di, Ob La-Da," and "Yellow Submarine." Different from the original recordings of Ringo, Paul, John and George, youngsters sing back up encouraging your tot to get in on the action. For Beatles lovers like myself, I'd be oh so delighted if my wee one belted out "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in the backseat while we bopped about town running errands. Bonus — no chipmunks were involved in the recording process.

In college child development classes they taught us that recordings done by other children actually hinder the listening child's ability to develop proper auditory skills. This is because the recordings of children are often off-key.

Don't forget the Bedtime w/The Beatles CDs by Jason Falkner. They even got the thumbs up from none other than Paul McCartney. Also, I haven't heard them or anything but Micky Dolenz (The Monkees) has done children's records as well including his versions of Beatles songs and those are supposed to be good too.

What is wrong with playing the original Beatles? There is nothing child unfriendly about them, and I'd rather have my kids learn to appreciate the originals, rather than bland pop remakes. We listened to the Rolling Stones and a Clash song on the way to school this morning---and the only children singing were mine! It's like that horrid Kidz Bop garbage.

Cute enough, but I think I'll stick with the original Beatles recordings. Their song selections are kid friendly.
