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.
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.
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!
