Top 40 Hits as Re-Written For My Children

As you know if you follow this blog, there is a trend in kids music that involves adult musicians making sophisticated albums for children. This is good, because it means parents and kids alike can listen to the same songs without anyone wanting to cover their ears. But this does not solve the issue of moms and dads wanting to listen to songs they already like that their children have no interest in.

And to get you started, here a few suggestions.
