But beyond the educational impact of this CD, it's the music that makes it enduring! "Little Twelvetoes" is a cool song with a very far out way of making it's point! The opening guitar riff of that track would make the sample loop of an instant hit song for someone like Beck or Snoop Dogg or Walrus Gumboot (I want songwriting credit :-) Call it Dec El Doe. "If man were born with 6 fingers on each hand...he probably would have invented 2 more digits in his number system...'dek' & 'el' being two entirely new single digits...and his twelve 'do' would have been written one-o...Get It? That'd be Swell, to multiply by Twelve"
Most of the songs are not quite so "deep". "Naughty Number Nine" is a great blues track. "Figure Eight" has a haunting melody. Suffice it to say that this is not one of those CDs that will drive you nuts if your child plays it repeatedly!
All of the CDs in the series are great, but Multiplication Rock is the best in my opinion. The videos are even better although the sound quality is poor. How 'bout releasing the complete series of 4 on one DVD? If you're already a fan, the tribute CD 'Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks' is worth a listen (Check out Mr. Morton). Bob Dorough (who wrote all of the songs on this CD and sings most of them) also has a recent release called 'Too Much Coffee Man'. Can't wait to hear it!
After listening to this CD only twice, my son was reciting it. That's the goal to make multiplication fun & this does it.
The songs are definitly not very with the times, but my kid is 3, so he has no preference for pop music yet. :)
He loves "Three is a magic number" - I think because it says "A man and a woman had a little baby, yes, they did, they had threee-hee-hee in the family, that's a magic number"
The tunes are catchy & not too terrible to listen to over & over. :)
