Sometimes these CDs come into my life and, honestly, I’m not really sure how. It’s possible I bought it, but it would have been so long ago that I don’t recall. No matter, it’s here now.
It’d be easy to dismiss this compilation as cheese. Because it is cheese. But it’s also a bangin’ soundtrack to an hilarious good time. My daughter and I howled with laughter as we drove in the car today. She grooved in her seat. Ever seen a three-year-old groove?
