ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alden's silly songs have delighted audiences throughout Maryland and beyond, where he performs in schools, libraries and festivals through Young Audiences of Maryland. "Totally Attached to His Head" serves up an earful of zany lyrics, peppy guitar thumping, funky bass, drums and sound effects as you sing along to "Ted the Rhino" and laugh out loud at "The Dog's Been Sending Me Spam."

Ever since Alden's kids were, say, about this tall, he's been making up silly songs to amuse them. The kids are getting older now, so when he starts singing, mostly they just smile indulgently and try to slip out of the room unnoticed, but that hasn't stopped Alden from writing a fresh batch of silly songs especially for kids of elementary school age, which seems to be Alden's intellectual "sweet spot."

Special thanks to Marcel Jacobs/daBRAIN musicPROductions for keyboards, production & mastering on "Be Careful With My Megadroid Robot", and thanks to Otis Stroup for sea-worthy accordion on "Mysterious Island of the Grandmas".

Parents and daycare providers have said about Alden's previous recordings:
"...I was thinking it was you who introduced us to his WONDERFUL Cd that I have played literally hundreds of times in the past couple months. My daycare kids just love it - especially I Like to Jump - Which I do believe is the all time "most played" song in my 10 years of running this daycare. The kids all know it by heart and if they aren't all singing along the whole way through - they certainly are when it gets to the part of "i like to jump in my UNDERWEAR!" That always cracks them up. Anyway, I just wanted you to spread the word to him that his voice is heard in our house on a daily basis, and ask you to PLEASE let us know if he has any other CDs out since that one, cuz we're all over it if there is. -And not that I don't enjoy this CD - but something different would be really nice about now!"

After finding out I have another CD:
"I listened to some of his new songs off his website. They're great and I'll definitely be placing an order - and sure you can forward my comments to him. Kameryn asked me to tell you to tell him that her favorite part is when they say "I Like to jump on my BROTHER'S HEAD! -don't really do that okay?" - and the older girls love the song that begins (and ends) - "Why did my Hamburger, roll under the couch. dun dun." They can't wait to hear his new songs! Thanks!"

"...All 3 of the big boys suddenly take on that competitive edge around their eyeballs when the title song "The Cow Song" comes along. Each one is mysteriously compelled to become the first one able to recite every word of the long list of ice cream flavors and add-ins with the same remarkable speed with which Alden plays and sings. Listening to that song always creates a frenzy of competition with lips flying and ears glued to the speakers. We can never play that one just once - we have to repeat it again and again in hopes of increasing the number of words per second escaping from their lips at each go 'round. Oh, I could go on and on about this album. We love everything about it. But for now I'll stop here and post his website as soon as he gets it up. That way you too can do what we do - buy 10 copies at a time and hand them out to every poor kid who invites one of our brood to their birthday party...."
