Kids Music

If you have a kid I'm would say they would enjoy the music a whole lot more than I did because it is geared for the children.

What’s the oddest name that I’ve heard of for a singer? That would be Caspar Babypants, and yes that’s the name on the CD but it’s not his real name, just his stage name. If you can’t tell by that name, Caspar Babypants sings childrens songs. Very odd children’s songs that have me wonder if I listened to this kind of stuff when I was a kid. I don’t think I ever did but I think maybe if I had heard the songs on the album “Hot Dog” I would have liked them. If anything I would have liked the name of the CD along with the cover art of a dog wearing a hat and a ball on his nose.

Alright, the songs are something to listen to, even if you are not a kid I think most people would find listening to the songs interesting or at least different. I was not prepared for what I was going to listen to when the first song ‘Sugar Ant’ played. Starting up this CD I figured it was going to be one of those very annoying, repetitive set of children’s songs but what I heard were songs that had some actual musical talent. Though these songs are not going to be played like a regular CD but Caspar Babypants is able to create some fun songs that I’m betting kids just love. They are easy to listen to, the lyrics, though they are crazy, they’re understandable, and the meaning is, ok not sure what some of the meanings are in the songs because they are just crazy songs. The songs might crazy but they are also lots of fun and full of energy.

Caspar Babypants has created a set of songs that don’t have that normal annoying sound that most children’s songs have. Instead these songs had rhythms that have a rock feel to them, beats that are quick, and has a sound that if there were different lyrics could make for a good rock and roll song. Even more impressive is the fact that the songs don’t sound the same. I figured with 19 songs on here that 17 of the 19 would have the same beat, tone, and rhythm but they don’t. “Hot Dog” has different sounds being played with each of the songs so that the album never gets boring. Not only do these songs sound good but they are songs that kids can listen to. There’s no worry about any crazy message being passed along to the kid and best yet they are full of energy. If I had this album when I was a kid I would have been bouncing off the wall with the fun I was having from listening to it. Though I’m not going to be listening to this much because it is a children’s CD but if I were a kid and I heard this album, I would have it playing a lot.
