Album Notes
This is the second in a projected series of four Princes of Serendip albums, after "Seed-Maid: Sentimental Songs", each highlighting a mood or feeling. These silly songs are perfect for a pick-me-up to restore good humor, or for a sing-along on a car journey, or with a bracing cup of chai to energize that mid-morning moment. The message is positive and warm throughout. The signature Serendip intertwining voices are accompanied by piano, strings, mandolin, upright bass, and occasional odd noises.

T. G. Vanini's songs explore everything from love to the delights of onions -- from crocodiles, bees and dinosaurs to the usefulness of knees -- from scientific discoveries (did you know that mice sing courting songs just like birds do?) to pure nonsense (what would it feel like to be a bouncy ball?) Be prepared for the world's first climate-change-peace-reggae-sea-shanty and for a celebration of the Fibonacci numbers.

What is a silly song? Well, it may be whimsical or funny or amorous, it may have a punch line or it may be about a beautiful view or the joys of reading, it may have a serious message or its only message might be Smile! It won't take itself too seriously and it won't put anybody down. Some are sillier than others but all the songs on this album were specially selected for that elusive ingredient of silliness, so hard to fake or define, with the aid of T. G. Vanini's proprietary Sillyometer.

The Princes of Serendip are Julie Parisi Kirby (vocals) and T. G. Vanini (vocals, piano, violin, keyboards). They're joined on this album by George Quinn (mandolin and bass), Mikhail Horowitz (vocals and harmonica), Julie Last and Jude Roberts (vocals), and Lou Pappas (bass). The album was recorded at Coldbrook Productions in Bearsville, NY, by Julie Last.

This album is Certified Guitar-Free.
