Boynton rocks! So does Blues Traveler, who perform a stomping version of the title song, a moody rock journey that Boynton wrote especially for them. And then there's Alison Krauss with ?Evermore.? And Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme?really?who do the ?Boring Song.? The Spin Doctors, who channel rock's rebellious side?with a taste of punk?for ?Tantrum?: ?No No No, I don't want to, I don't want to./No no no, I don't want to, no no./Leave me alone. Leave me alone./LEAVE ME ALONE.? And the sweetly unexpected pairing of ?Weird Al? Yankovic and Kate Winslet (yep, Kate Winslet) as a duet singing ?I Need a Nap.?
Full of attitude, full of fun, all lit up with star power, and boasting a variety of Top 40 styles?rock and roll, blues, hip-hop, and power pop?Dog Train is the third book-and-CD production by Sandra Boynton, following the #1 New York Times bestselling, Grammy-nominated Philadelphia Chickens and the recently re-released Rhinoceros Tap. Like Philadelphia Chickens, features all original songs recorded by a mix of big-name acts and great voices, for the pleasure of the parents as much as the kids. Packaged similarly to the previous Boynton & Ford recordings, Dog Train is also a full-color book that features a portion of each song's lyrics set as a little story, accompanied by Boynton's irresistible hippos, cows, dogs, and more dogs. Full lyrics appear in the back.
Bestselling cartoonist and children's book author Sandra Boynton has created a hilarious, rock-&-roll follow-up to PHILADELPHIA CHICKENS that has songs about everything from cows in outer space to hating broccoli. "Tantrum" features a very cranky little bear; a group of dogs are going nowhere, but swiftly and stylishly, in "Dog Train"; and the profound difficulties of being short, cold, and flightless are described in "Penguin Lament." The book includes three sections, "Look as You Listen,""Sing & Play," and "About the Artists." With Boynton's humorous signature illustrations. Accompanied by a 17-song CD featuring actress Kate Winslet &"Weird Al" Yankovic, Blues Traveler, Alison Krauss, and many more.
