'Jeanie B! Has created another gem. 'Joy' is a wonderful collection of songs that both my four-year-old son and I love. You'll find rockin'-good tunes that will have you dancing around the living room and singing at the top of your lungs in the car, as well as heartwarming melodies and lyrics that will make you want to snuggle up with your little one. I now often overhear my son singing some of her new songs to his stuffed animals in bed at night. Jeanie B!'s music has it all: heart, soul and humor. If you're already a Jeanie B! Fan, quick... add this CD to your collection! If you're new to Jeanie B!, start with this one. You'll want more. ~ Anne Coulter 'Joy' is the third Children's CD by this popular Chicago musicican. Jeanie B! ^#^embraces the notion that children's music should sound like adult music with kid friendly lyrics. There is something for everyone on this CD. The songs range from inspiring and uplifting to thoughtful and hearfelt. Kids love the sound of this rockin' band and benefit from the connection that Jeanie makes to their life situations in many songs. There's plenty of laughs as well to keep your funny bone happy. 'Jeanie B! ^#^and the Jelly Beans have a uniqueness that's lacking in most children's music today.' -- Mike Davis/WUSM FM/Hattiesburg, MS The title song 'Joy' will fill you with just that. It was written about Jeanie's own children who wake up with their bright eyes and exclaim 'I'm feeling great' and carry on with that joy througout the day. Joy is afterall, contagious. 'Hey Daddio' is a rockin' tribute to great Dad's viewed through the eyes of a child imagining they all live in a magical kingdom built by Daddio. 'When I'm Older' expresses the feelings of an older sibling frustrated by the younger kids in the house and longing to grow up so they can do more things. 'Dog's Life' is a new take on songs that have animal sounds as the basis. 'Cows like to go to the moovies' is how it starts and it takes us through the animal kingdom with a pun and a giggle at every turn. When Jeanie's son exclaimed one summer day that it was 'Ha ha ha ha Hot!' the song 'Hot Summer' was born. A delightful Jimmy Buffet style adventure through the joys of summer will keep you warm all year round. You buy a really nice toy for your child, they open the box and it's wrapped in bubble wrap. What toy? It's all about the bubble wrap. The song 'Bubble Wrap' says it all!! So many kids are over scheduled these days. 'I Just Wanna Play' is a kids lament to his parents to just let him play and grow from just haning out. Parents could use a little play time too... 'Comes from my Heart' certainly does. This one will reach down deep and touch your emotions and lift you up. Beautiful acoustic guitars and layered harmonies. Great for a quiet moment. The frogs take center stage in 'Blue Lagoon'. It's a bullfrog's paradise that will make you feel as though you're floating on a lake on a blow up matress. Why does it feel so good to skip? It just does! Get up and dance to this party song. Just listen to the instructions and follow along. Jeanie B! ^#^is 'Daddy's Little Girl'. This song was written as a tribute to her father on his 80th Birthday and will have all Daddy's holding their little girls tight tonight. When it's hard to say good night, you can meet me in my dreams. This will help with bedtime and separation at bedtime. If Mom or Dad has to travel, you can always meet in your dreams. There is a hidden track on this song called 'Ear Worm' which is the term used for little song clips that get stuck in your head and won't leave. Be careful, this one may too... 2006 Parents' Choice Recommended Award Winner!
