Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies. Andrew Peterson and Randall Goodgame. 2008. 41 minutes.
I will do my best to put into words how much I love, love, love this CD. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I mean I love, love, love Andrew Peterson. And I've never been disappointed in any of his projects. So I had high hopes for this one. And wow, what a great album this is!!!
It is a children's album. But I don't think you *have* to be a child to love this one. (Perhaps just a child at heart.) Eighteen songs--well, seventeen songs and a very cute, very sweet poem (Up). You'll find a blend of silly, sweet, catchy, and thought-provoking songs. (Yes, there are a couple of songs that make you think--deeply--about God, about faith. Not all the songs are 'religious' however. Plenty are just silly, silly, silly.) Some are fast; some are slow.
Here's the video for God Made Me. (One of the catchiest tunes from the album.)
- Post Office
- Piggy Little Toes
- God Made Me
- Who's Got The Ball
- Tractor Tractor
- Chicken Wiggle
- The Boy Who Was Bored
- You Can Always Come Home
- May the Lord Bless and Keep You
- Beautiful Girl
- My Baby Loves to Dance
- Settle In, My Child, and Sleep
Favorite silly song? Hard to choose between Bears, God Made Me, and Piggy Little Toes. (I loved Dreams too.)
Here's "Bears" live...
And a live version of "Piggy Little Toes"
Favorite lullaby? I loved May the Lord Bless and Keep You, Beautiful Girl, You Can Always Come Home, and My Baby Loves to Dance.
