Having completely spoiled the mood, I’m now going to review a children’s music release devoted to that topic.
Kids Imagine Nation is the high energy trio that makes the Wiggles look sleepy. Christmas Time Is Here is their aptly-named third CD and it’s chock full of, well, power pop anthems.
“Up On the Housetop” strips the paint off the old standard and rebuilds it as a full-throttled raver. “Frosty the Snowman” gets an EDM dance beat and “Go frosty go” refrains. “Jingle Bells” sounds like it came right from the Thanksgiving Day parade and “Deck the Halls” features singing dogs (and cats).
KIN’s closing selection of “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” is not to be played for a toddler at bedtime. In fact, I’d recommend it as a wake-up song or something for mom to play as she cuts through traffic to get the kids to school on a wintry day.
You can find Kids Imagine Nation on their YouTube channel as well. Here’s a recent episode featuring “Santa’s Workshop”:
