Barenaked Ladies – Snacktime!

This one wasn’t in the stacks, per se, but  kept with the old kids stuff. It’s BNL’s children’s songs CD, which we used to play for the kids at times many years ago.

It starts out with (why was 6 afraid of 7? because) 7 8 9, and goes from there. Tunes like The Ninjas, Pollywog In A Bog, My Big Sister, and Here Come The Geese all got played and are floating around somewhere in our kids’ memories. And let’s be real, BNL are perfect for singing kids songs.

My favourite song title is the Gordon Lightfoot tribute of The Canadian Snacktime Trilogy, which even has three parts (as it should). “All The Barenaked Children got to sing on this record as wll, which is a fun inclusion of their own families.

It pays to read the liner notes, where you’ll find thanks to the Snacktime Hotline callers, including Geddy “BBQ Potato Chips” Lee, Lyle “Watermelon” Lovett, Sarah “Chocolate” McLachlan, Matin “Olives” Tielli, David “Sembei” Suzuki, Jason “Mac and Cheese” Priestly, Gord “Peanut Butter And Crackers” Downie, “Pickled Eggs” Bubbles, ‘Weird Al’ “Honey Roasted Peanuts” Yankovic, Janeane “Microwaved Chocolate Doughuts” Garafalo, and Gordon “Pasta” Lightfoot.

This record was released 2008, our son was born 2009, so the timing was perfect.
