On the prowl

Ok, for all you hip mamas out there in cyberspace, I'm searching high and low for cool kids' music. Nothing contrived, syrupy sweet, or "endurable", thank you very much. I'm talking things in the vein of "For the Kids Too" http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0003JANQE/qid=1138627218/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/103-7138898-0347040?s=music&v=glance&n=5174. Silly is ok. So is upbeat. But the music and vocals must be adult friendly. So....comments, anyone?

Dan Zanes and They Might Be Giants along with some later Laurie Berkner are a few of my favs.

We groove to the Beach Boys around here and Brian Wilson (one of the Beach Boys gone solo). Acapella. Storyhill. I'm really liking Peter, Paul & Mary - their Around the Campfire album...very old stuff, but strangely applicable to our current political situation.

Oh...and good to "see" you here. Thanks for the e-mail with links to see pictures of Ella!
