Awesome children’s music

I’m a big fan of some children’s music that has emerged over the past few years. You have Yo Gabba Gabba, which was created by the singer of the Aquabats and features some awesome indie artists singing songs to help educate children and stimulate their imagination. There’s Milkshake, who paid their dues in other bands in the Baltimore music scene before forming this band. And They Might Be Giants, who have been around since the 1980s, but did not start out as a children’s band.

I purchased the Powerpuff Girls soundtrack that came out roughly ten years ago and I still listen to it sometimes. It’s not really educational, but it’s still good for children on a creative and imaginative level.

I like the way these recent songs have been written and performed. They don’t insult a child’s intelligence. Many adults enjoy these songs as well. The music is well-done. It’s catchy enough for kids to like, but it’s not dumbed down.

I could not find any music videos online for Milkshake, but here is their website:
