Milkshake is the duo of Lisa Mathews and Mikel Gehl, both members of the popular rock group LOVE RiOT. After becoming new parents (Lisa has a daughter, Mikel a son), they found themselves thinking up songs to entertain their toddlers. The resulting recording features music as tuneful and alive as that found on the LOVE RiOT recordings (see the LOVE RiOT CD Baby page for more info), and indeed we think fans of the band will love many of the songs featured on Happy Songs.

Contemporary, fun, educational and heartwarming, Milkshake's debut recording Happy Songs is a potpourri of activity songs, upbeat rock songs and lullabies released on Milkshake Music.

Milkshake's original songs are based in the pop-rock genre, and influenced by both the years spent performing tuneful, melodic music in their rock band alter ego Love Riot, and the classic sounds of great groups like the Beatles.

Both Mathews' and Gehl's songs have been featured on network television programs (NBC-TV's Providence, Homicide: Life on the Street, All My Children, Passions; ABC-TV's JAG, One Life To Live), MTV, the Oxygen Channel, Disney's ZGames 2000, and the Showtime Network. Their music is noted for it's multi-generational appeal, and the musicians have performed on such diverse venues as prime-time television, Lilith Fair and a mountain stage in Japan.

Wonderful! My son wants to hear it all day!
Your Cd is wonderful! I have a 2 year-old son who always wants to listen to his Happy Song. He loves it and so do I! Everytime a song ends I hear a little "Uh-oh", and a "Yea" when the next one starts.

Good, but like Bottle of Sunshine better
Love Milkshake and this cd and Happy Song is a good one, but I like their newer cd much better, "Bottle of Sunshine". I think the songs on their first cd aren't as "catchy" and my kids are always asking to change the cd after the first couple songs. Still much better than most of the children's cds out there, however.


Hurray! Music we can all enjoy!
I was SO sick of listening to the Wiggles all the time so I am thrilled to have found Milkshake because I think they are great too. My 3 yr old twin girls learned the words and sing and dance to this music now all the time- their fave is Happy Song. We have seen them twice in person and they are great performers with the kids. I gave this cd 4 stars but I would give Bottle of Sunshine 5 stars- slightly more peppy songs for the kids. Either way can't go wrong!

I listened to this CD this morning with my mom and it was fun.
This is a fun CD to listen to in the morning, even when I'm sick with a cold. Thanks and keep up the good work.


Happy Songs is amazing!
Happy Songs is an amazing CD. My daughter fell in love with Milkshake watching Noggin. I bought Bottle of Sunshine as well, and was just as impressed. I admit to sneaking these CDs into my car more than once, and I'm a picky listener. Highly recommended songs that are fun and engaging, not just foo-foo fluff. The lyrics actually get you to think a lot more than with typical kids music.

All three of my kids, 4,6, and 9, love this CD.
All of my kids love this CD and ask to hear it in the car. It is upbeat and fun to listen to and the songs don't pander to my kids which I really appreciate.

Lauren Skau

Awesome! Fun tunes! Love to listen to them!
This is a great CD - even enjoyable for adults! There are several excellent songs with nice repetitive portions that I will use with the special education preschoolers I work with.

Michele Bracci

My 7 month old twins love this CD and so do I! Every time Happy Songs begins to play they start screaming, smiling and dancing in their seats. After a few days of listening to fingers and toes and watching me count on my hands, they started to move their fingers and hands. It is a fun way to play with your children after a long day at work. Thank you for creating this wonderful music!!!


Mom & Dad like it too!
We originally borrowed this from the library and liked it so much that we decided to purchase our own copy! It has catchy, fun tunes that we find ourselves singing even when the cd is not playing.

You won't scream upon hearing it for the 600th time.
Happy Songs is a charming collection of songs that won't make parents scream upon hearing it for the 600th time. Any parent who can listen to "When You Were Born" and not get tears in their eyes needs to have their heart checked. I've given away six copies (so far) and I know for a fact it resulted in six happy kids.
