Sing-A-Longs & Lullabies for the Film Curious George (Jack Johnson)
Soundtracks album by Jack Johnson
Admit it: If you had to pick an artist to give voice to the wackadoo thinkings of a monkey beloved by most of the American populace over age 3, you could do a lot worse than Jack Johnson. Black Eyed Peas? Too hyper. Death Cab for Cutie? Too ironic. They … see full wiki
Sometimes movie soundtracks are good to listen to, but only if you've seen the movie. Other times there are movie soundtracks that are much better than the movie they come from. The best movie soundtracks not only make the films they are a part of a better movie, but they can also stand alone upon themselves. Such is the case with SING-A-LONGS & LULLABIES FOR THE FILM CURIOUS GEORGE. Most of the music on this album was written and is performed by the great and magnificent Jack Johnson. Johnson has an unique way of writing music that is catchy and upbeat, full of hope and promise, but seeped in meaningful lyrics. I could listen to Jack Johnson play music all day long and not grow tired of it. G. Love, Matt Costa, and Ben Harper each contribute on one song on this album, but the rest is all Jack. Some of my favorites are:
"Upside Down"--this song broke onto contemporary and pop radio stations all around the country giving Jack Johnson more recognition than he ever had before.
"People Watching"--similar in style to other tunes on the album, but I like it because I like to people watch.
"The 3 R's"--this song reminds me of songs I heard from my childhood on SEASAME STREET and THE ELECTRIC COMPANY.
This album was originally marketed towards children, but the music is so wonderful that it has quickly caught on with teenagers, college students, and adults. It truly is an album that everyone in the family can enjoy.
