HILLTOWN FAMILY VARIETY SHOW

THE BOTTLE LET ME DOWN

This past week Hilltown Families contributing writer Bill Childs posted the article, Music Compilations Worth The Bother. Bill offers a review of seven compilation albums, and later adds to his list here. My daughter saw the album image from The Bottle Let Me Down and liked it the best. As a consequence we’ve had to play in the car for at least a week now! It’s a good thing the album’s great! The title of the album appears as a tattoo on a babies arm, which led my daugher to whine for a tattoo too. We pulled out a tattoo of Gustafer Yellowgold’s head from the Brooklyn Hootenanny, and all was well.

FUNKY BUTT

We featured four cuts* from this album my daughter hijacked the car with, along with the title track by the Great Lake Swimmers from the album See You On The Moon, which is one of my fav sing-alongs. Two of the tracks were instrumentals, and if you’ve read our post Power Nap you know My daughter not a fan of music without lyrics. But the two instrumental songs we featured, “Cartoon Chicken” and “Camptown Races” were under her radar, mostly because they’re short, fun tunes, along with being wedged in between songs with fun lyrics and titles, like “Funky Butt” – She giggles severely whenever I mentioned that title.

BLUE MOON

There’s been much talk in our house this past week about the Blue Moon, so it only made sense to do a tribute with “Blue Moon of Kentucky” by Bill Monroe. My daugher likes to discover moon lore so I’ve tried to keep up with a moon lore series, which has featured a few books on moon lore. She particularly likes the book Thirteen Moons of Turtles Back. To properly explain to her what a Blue Moon is we’d have to present at least three different perspectives. However, short and easy explanations trump the more laborious ones, so we’ve told her, “The Blue Moon is the second full moon that occurs in a given month.” This of course faults us for furthering legends and lore, rather than facts, but who’s got time for the truth nowadays? (sarcasm)
