Todayâ€™s Way Out Wednesday features this album by the Peter Pan Orchestra and Chorus, called Whatâ€™s the Good Word? It has fun little ditties about different parts of speech and different kinds of words. Here are some samples:
This song starts the album off. I know it says itâ€™s the Peter Pan Orchestra and Chorus, but it sounds to me like a bunch of studio singers taking a break from singing commercials for sponsors like T.G.&Y. and those other 5-and-10 type stores. (Kids, if you donâ€™t know what a 5 & 10 store is, go ask somebody older than you.)
Next we have a song talking about how cavemen communicated without knowing what words were yet. Apparently, according to this song, they were just all really twitchy.
This song is all about plurals, and how confusing they can be. I like this one because it sounds like a Broadway show tune. Iâ€™m sure if there was ever a Broadway show about plurals, this one would be a shoo-in!
The last song featured here is about Antonym Island, and is especially enjoyable because it features a bunch of white guys trying to sing calypso.
If you also want to hear songs about synonyms, homonyms, onomatopeia, and much more, you can listen to the entire album here!
Sorry for the abbreviated post this week. Work and school have been hitting my schedule hard. Iâ€™ll try to have something more substantial here for you all next week!
