(Not) For Babies: Bongo Bong.
November 2, 2009
I grew up in a musical family. My mama never allowed music into the home that she didn’t like herself, so while I had Raffi & Rosenschontz in the house, I also had Paul Simon & the Rolling Stones. I like to make mixes to listen to with kids that are equal parts “kids” songs and “grown up” songs. One of my favorite “grown up” songs to include is Manu Chao’s “Bongo Bong.” (Criteria for a good “grown-up” kids song: easy to memorize and sing at will, upbeat, kid-appropriate lyrics.)
