Text and Tunes: Snacktime by Barenaked Ladies

The Barenaked Ladies are now focused on babe. After twenty years together, the alternative rock band known for songs like "It's Been One Week," "Pinch Me" and "If I had a Million Dollars" that are popular with parents, now seeks an audience who prefer sippy cups. Their latest CD, SNACKTIME ($11) was released earlier this month. To hear why they turned to tot tunes,

.

It was the band's own offspring that served as the inspiration behind their latest collection of 24 original tracks for children and anyone else interested in listening. Their website said:

"Our collective kids now outnumber the band more than 2 to 1," explains vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson. "We set out to make a record that would be entertaining for them…not strictly a children's record, but a record that children would really enjoy. Our kids are in to all kinds of music.

Covering everything from hand-me-downs to allergies to food preferences and bad days in the same humorous vein that the Barenaked Ladies are famous for, SNACKTIME is full of fun family tunes including "Raisins" and "Louis Loon."

Love the Barenaked Ladies even more now that they are courting the younger generation. I'm always for music that appeases both adults and kiddos.

Oh and apparently the "band" is managed by Green Day's manager so I think that helps. lol

I can't wait to try it. Also for good kids music that won't annoy the parents try the Shushybye Baby Show on DirectTv. Or check their website. They're super awesome. http://www.shushybye.com/

I'm so glad you posted this! I've been listening to the CD for the past week and it's awesome. A kid's CD that doesn't annoy mom is always good in my books!

Reminds me of the They Might Be Giants kids albums. I'd give the album a listen.
