Okay, I know I'm late to the party. I'm totally the girl who was supposed to bring the appetizer who comes as you're cutting the cake. I'm that girl. But just because I'm late doesn't mean I want to miss the party.
I'm just going to be one of the many others who have already yelled "Ooooh! Ooooh! Pick me!" Horshack-style to answer the question, "WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE NEW LUNCH MONEY ALBUM?"
There's a lot I like about it. Here's a beginning list:
1. Molly always sounds like she's just about to laugh when she sings. And I think that almost-laughing-singer-voice is the best kind to have. Seems particularly terrific to have when you're singing the background (or foregound) to a little kid's everyday life.
2. The lyrics are really good. And I mean that in this way. But also I just mean they're funny. And really good lyrics are the best part of a really good song (for me, I mean, of course, because I already know some people think it's about the music more. Whatever. Lyrics Rule.) Please tell me you can come up with a better line than babaganoosh in a kid song. Right. I didn't think so.
3. It's a family project. And that just gets a big fat high five from everybody here at the Hendrix house. Yes, it would be better if Molly and Jay adopted J.P., but we are big believers in Chosen Family and so can settle for this minor discrepancy and still consider it a family-made album.
4. I keep wanting to push play again after it's over.
Well, now I'm gushing. And I didn't even tell you that "Tiny Dinosaurs" is my favorite song.
p.s. Here's the link to the get the album since I know you want to buy it now that I said all that.
