ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You probably know Barry's song "All I Want is You" from the JUNO film and soundtrack. Barry's song was featured in the opening credits of the movie and is the first song on the soundtrack album which won a Grammy award and has sold over a million copies throughout the word. What you may not know is that Barry wrote and recorded that song in 1977 and has written over one hundred songs over the last three decades.

This new 2-disc set features artists from around the world covering Barry's songs. Sixty songs have been compiled by Aaron Cohen of The Radioactive Chicken Heads and re-imagined and performed by musicians in genres as diverse as hip-hop, folk, jazz, klezmer and rock. The album includes all of Barry's classic songs as well as three different covers of "All I Want is You" from JUNO -- including one sung entirely in French by a singer in Brittany.

No! No! Not the Nose!
The Tushie Song, "Doo Doo Is A Bad Word" and "Shtek Nit Dayn Finger in Der Noz (Don't Put Your Finger Up Your Nose)" are amazing. here's why: Seriously folks, I am a second grade teacher in Queens and I have a whole gaggle of children in my class that simply need a little music to calm their sugar enriched brains down a few notches, and this CD does it. This CD has allowed me to create a whole bunch of various games for my kids depending on what the song is about. I have a multi-cultural class and one of my kids is Jewish and told me he learned Yiddish from his grandparents. He actually got extra cool points from his class mates because he translated the whole song, Shtek Nit Dayn Finger in Der Noz (Don't Put Your Finger Up Your Nose) for the rest of his class (and me thank you) that Deborah Berman so eloquently sings. Whomever the female singer is on that song (someone in one of these reviews says her name is Deborah... well, Deborah- Thank you! You have a beautiful
voice that soothed my kids in class, helped me teach them something new, helped them learn more from and about one of their other class mates and allowed us all to have fun doing it. I HIGHLY recommend this CD to any and ALL teachers for their class. A+

There are few genres more earnest than children's music, but thankfully, Polisar finds room for self-deprecation.

Deliciously Subversive
Deliciously subversive musical humor. Hand this to a fan of alternative rock without mentioning Polisar's kids' song roots, and they'll never know the difference.

Nugget Island Review

Nugget Island Review
While the attention given to children's music typically focuses on the newer artists, I think it is important to remember some of the pioneers of this genre. And no one represents a "founding father" of the genre better than Barry Louis Polisar. This album is truly a delight.

We're Not Kidding
Polisar has made a career of writing smart, engaging music and books for children. "We're Not Kidding" is a rich trove of songs that are good natured, subtle, sometimes goofy and often humorous. Given the sheer amount of material here, it's impressive how strong most of it is, largely because Polisar presupposes that kids are intelligent.
