Last year I wrote out a list of forty things I'd like to do before I turn forty. The big date is coming up in May, and I've still got quite a few items left unchecked, but completing item #34 -- add 10 or more new songs to my running playlist -- turned out to be a breeze. Thanks to Alfie's subscription to Rolling Stone magazine, to Glee and to The Pea's newfound interest in pop music, I'm discovering great new songs all the time.
On May 8, KIDZ BOP is releasing their Ultimate Hits collection cd, and they sent me an advance copy to review. Needless to say, my kids love it; they don't call it Ultimate Hits for nothing! What's more surprising is that I do, too. I love all the songs, and remarkably, I didn't find any of the vocals annoying. The songs sound like good covers of the originals, not like a recording of your neighbor's high-pitched child singing at a recital or block party. I would definitely listen to these songs again-- see, my running playlist is growing and growing!
Here's the complete track listing:
1. Tik Tok
3. California Gurls
4. I Gotta Feeling
6. Party In The USA
7. Break Your Heart
8. Hey Soul Sister
9. DJ Got Us Falling In Love
10. Fire Burning
11. You Belong With Me
12. Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)
How's that for a Dynamite song list? Everyone knows and loves these songs, so I Gotta Feeling your kids will be want to get their hands on it! It's sure to get everyone's Fire Burning and make everyone want to Party in the USA. Best of all, you don't need to be a Billionaire to afford it, since it costs only $13.98. Tik Tok, Tik Tok, the countdown clock is ticking to May 8! (now, how's that for the longest pun ever?)
