Holy moley! ItÁ¢€â„¢s more Smurfs! Yep, itÁ¢€â„¢s another Way Out Wednesday with a second helping of those delightful little blue dudes, the Smurfs. IÁ¢€â„¢m not really as attached to this one as I was to the Smurfing Sing Song album I put on here before. For one thing, I grew up with the Sing Song album, whereas I just got this one a couple of years ago. Secondly, I think this one relies too much on already established songs, like Á¢€Å“Rock-a-Bye BabyÁ¢€ and Á¢€Å“London Bridge Is Falling Down.Á¢€ However, there are still some tunes that stick out on this one, and IÁ¢€â„¢ll highlight them here.
The first one is the title tune, which has a sort of Á¢€Å“Magical Mystery TourÁ¢€ feel to it, with the echoing voice inviting us to the show.
Next we have what I guess would be a sort of fifties pop song, with its Á¢€Å“oo-wee-oo-wee-ooÁ¢€ from the backup singers. This song is about a Á¢€Å“Silly Shy SmurfÁ¢€ thatÁ¢€â„¢s so shy he hides in the loo. What do they need loos for when they’ve got those huge mushrooms everywhere?
Á¢€Å“Smurf a Happy TuneÁ¢€ is pretty catchy, but theyÁ¢€â„¢re getting into that annoying habit of substituting the word Á¢€Å“SmurfÁ¢€ randomly into sentences.
I suppose this next song is a sort of dance song, but it would help if we were told to do more than just jump and clap!
WeÁ¢€â„¢ll end this Smurfy tour with the song Á¢€Å“Smurfing Days.Á¢€ Check out the odd chord progressions on the verses!
And if youÁ¢€â„¢d like to get the entire album, all you have to do is come by the blog and get it here!
ThatÁ¢€â„¢s it for this time. ItÁ¢€â„¢s another short one because IÁ¢€â„¢m having to work on my thesis this week. (Actually itÁ¢€â„¢s three research papers that need to be 1500-2500 words each.) TheyÁ¢€â„¢re due this coming Monday, so by the next Way Out Wednesday IÁ¢€â„¢ll be finished with Á¢€Ëœem. HOORAY!
