SONG REVIEW:

Get Up in the Morninâ
A cheerful look at a variety of weather in a solid, rocking jazzy setting. Listeners are encouraged not to be grumpy, sad or blue, and definitely should not âsassâ Momma Nature as she sends a variety of weather upon the world.

Iâd Rather be a Bear
Whatâs not to like? Bears get to eat a lot, get fat, and then sleep the winter months away. Playing in the sun and then going back to bed, round out their enviable lifestyle. Set in a style reminiscent of the classical tale of Peter and the Wolf by Prokofiev, listeners will soon find themselves singing along and maybe even looking at those wild blackberry bushes with more than normal interest.

Best Friends
The escapades of two friends that always seem to require apologetic reconnection. If you have ever been chased by a bull, unsuccessfully attempted to jump a major mud puddle or stumbled on a nest of bees with your âbestâ friend, this song will sound familiar to you.

I Got a Sister (but I wanted a dog)
What self-respecting youngster who asked for a dog would be satisfied when a sister shows up instead? Everyone knows a dog will do things a sister would not. How could parents misunderstand that? This 6/8 blues style offering has gritty harmonica highlights and will be sure to be a favourite of siblings everywhere.

Whoâs in the Tub?
Add lots of water, a duck, a chicken, a tuba, a cat and everyone else you can find to the tub and get ready to sing along. Accompanied by soprano saxophone, banjo, bassoon and tuba, this song may become as much of a bath time staple as a rubber ducky.

Dust Bunny Rag
Everyone has those pesky little dust bunnies. Finally, a song in which someone is able to come clean and admit it! Ragtime seemed to be the most appropriate setting for those inclined to try to win the war on dust, although our advice is to throw in the dust rag and learn to live with the dust bunnies.

Singinâ the Blues
In a true blues song it is often the standard that the singer loses their girl and their truck, their dog runs away, itâs raining and Momma is in jail. This song is from the perspective of a child who may have different issues than the grown ups, but who still finds reasons to sing the blues.

Donna-Andy Cha Cha Cha
Grab your dancing shoes and get ready to Cha Cha Cha. Listen to the hot sax and trumpet section and good instructions given in the lyrics, and you wonât even need those expensive dance lessons!

Itâs a Pirateâs Life for Me
Imagining a ship full of singing pirates will not be difficult once you have heard this song. Accordion, guitar and a bass trombone create the perfect on board ambiance required to sing about talking birds, swords and walking the plank. To the sea! To the sea!

Phone Me
This song is dedicated to all those who have ever experienced the frustration of being unable to leave that important message on someone elseâs answering machine. A sultry âback alleyâ trumpet and walking bass give movement to this slow, jazzy song of complaint.

Star Light Star Bright
Close your eyes and remember how it was to wish on that early evening star. Maybe that star would like to have a chance to make a wish, or is it all just wishful thinking on our part? With hints of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and fine saxophone stylings, this beautiful song is reflective and plaintive.

Someone Like Me
A young solo voice begins the piece questioning what one small person can hope to accomplish. As the song progresses, we discover that everyone can do something, and combining forces with others creates a force that can accomplish much. The final reflection is left to the young soloist who discovers that âmaybe what the world needs is someone just like me.â In a pop style with a message promoting self-esteem, this song is sure to be a favourite selection for elementary school choirs and soloists.
