Music Monday

 As a Kindergarten teacher I hear my fair share of "Kid Music". Standards we all probably grew up with - " Head and Shoulders", "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" get the idea. 
I wanted to find music that was...different for 3. 
Don't get me wrong, I love those songs. But...I know there are other choices out there that during this baby stage we could all enjoy and appreciate.
 Here are some not so typical songs we just can't get enough of...with direct links to iTunes.

Get Up Dance
Caribbean Amphibian - Sesame Street: Elmopalooza!
I hear you "MICHELLE!!! This is Sesame Street!!!!!" TRUST ME. This is a duet by Kermit the Frog and Jimmy Buffet. No really!! I played this one cranky night while wearing and dancing with 3 and now it is our "magic" song. 
 this may sound familiar from some tv commercials
"Mama loves you so much baby..." just makes you want to dance!
Once upon a time my sister could play this on the ukulele, it is fun and very upbeat. Wiggleworms is a great CD with a mix of old and new songs. 
The Woody Guthrie version because it's Woody Guthrie

Lay Down and Nap (pleeeeeeease)
Far from a kid song, but I love it
Your Hand In Mine - The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place
FNL fans this should sound words. Sometimes mamas we need that. 
Natalie Merchant. CD is of various artists and benefits Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
Each Coming Night - Our Endless Numbered Days
Another one not "made" for kids but it just sounds so sweet and pretty
3 Is the Magic Number - You Are My Sunshine 
Elizabeth Mitchell sings this and all her albums are worth downloading.
3 truly is my magic number
