Holy moley! Itâ€™s more Smurfs! Yep, itâ€™s another Way Out Wednesday with a second helping of those delightful little blue dudes, the Smurfs. Iâ€™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 â€œRock-a-Bye Babyâ€ and â€œLondon Bridge Is Falling Down.â€ However, there are still some tunes that stick out on this one, and Iâ€™ll highlight them here.
The first one is the title tune, which has a sort of â€œMagical Mystery Tourâ€ 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 â€œoo-wee-oo-wee-ooâ€ from the backup singers. This song is about a â€œSilly Shy Smurfâ€ thatâ€™s so shy he hides in the loo. What do they need loos for when they’ve got those huge mushrooms everywhere?
â€œSmurf a Happy Tuneâ€ is pretty catchy, but theyâ€™re getting into that annoying habit of substituting the word â€œSmurfâ€ 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!
Weâ€™ll end this Smurfy tour with the song â€œSmurfing Days.â€ Check out the odd chord progressions on the verses!
And if youâ€™d like to get the entire album, all you have to do is come by the blog and get it here!
Thatâ€™s it for this time. Itâ€™s another short one because Iâ€™m having to work on my thesis this week. (Actually itâ€™s three research papers that need to be 1500-2500 words each.) Theyâ€™re due this coming Monday, so by the next Way Out Wednesday Iâ€™ll be finished with â€˜em. HOORAY!
