Rock Out with Your Kid

If I hear "Mary Had a Little Lamb" one more time, I might scream. In fact, I might be one "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" away from a breakdown.

Kid listening to music

Christina Montoya Fiedler: If you're like me, and are battling against sugary-sweet baby tunes, check out Jitterbug.tv. It's the answer to all our lullaby woes. Turns out a lot of our favorite musicians are making great music that the whole family can enjoy.

I don't know about you, but I'd much rather have a kiddie tune from Jack Johnson stuck in my head over, well, just about anything.

You can listen to music streaming live from the site, or view music-related video clips of your favorite musicians who have been featured on popular TV shows, like System of a Down on Noggin's "Jack's Big Music Show," or Norah Jones and Feist on KCET's "Sesame Street."

The slogan on the site says it all: "We hand pick all the good stuff. You won't find Barney here."

Founders Randall Green and Dan Gellert classify their content as the "Kindie" Movement -- the mix between kids and independent music. It's been around for a while. These guys just had the good sense to put it all together on one great site. 

P.S. They take suggestions, so if you know of a cool artist belting out kid-friendly tunes, send them a message!

have you tried the ‘rock-a-bye baby’ albums? they are songs by popular/iconic bands turned into lullabies and kid friendly songs. (Enter Sandman by Metallica for example)

I HIGHLY recommend!

The songs on Noggin are the ones I can’t get out of my head. ‘We’re goin’ on a trip, we’re goin’ on a trip. Are we there yet. Are we there yet. I really can’t wait much longer.’ That song has been in my head all week.

Hmmm…I tend to sing camp songs (aka Girl Scout songs). Jack Johnson is good. I really need to get you the Spanish lullabies from Tricia. Those songs are great!
