Anyone who can plop the words antioxidant and pomegranate into a song is tops in yeLAdim’s book. The catchy tunes of The SqueeGees make education entertaining in such songs as “The Elements” (i.e., all about wind, fire, water, etc.) and “Rules of the Road” (Go, go, go; stop, stop, stop; don’t drive too fast or too slow).
Kids will have too much fun making noises with the appropriately named “Making Noises,” and grown-ups will get a kick out of the humorous lyrics — especially tunes like “The Ol’ WWW” (“got directions and a map on the Internet … bid on a Chia Pet on the Internet”).
Kids-at-heart Samantha Tobey and Roman Bluem (aka The SqueeGees) will be at UCLA this weekend playing all these songs and more at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books: Saturday, April 28, on the Storytelling 9 stage at 4 p.m.; and Sunday, April 29, at the Target stage at 1:25 p.m.
