Soundtrack for the Nick Jr show. I skipped over anything from the original show, since they are verbatim educational songs from the TV. However, the CD has a stellar list of artists including The Shins and of Montreal. They all wrote these songs for the show, so keep in mind that anything on this soundtrack will not sound exactly like the band since it’s geared to a much, much younger audience. The themes of the songs are all educational. Overall it’s a fun, lightweight compilation of short pop songs. Take it for what it is. Obviously, FCC clean. Try 3, 10, 19
*3. Funny upbeat song by The Shins, short and sweet. Guitar sounds kind of country-ish. Geared towards a younger crowd.
5. Electronic track. Really funny and fun. Use of loops and funny sounds from the synth.
8. Hip-hop track, complete with claps and sound effects. Song about having to wash your hands, I laughed out loud.
*10. Song about family. Caribbean feel to it. A lot of sound effects. Fresh.
12. Slower song, with an ethnic vibe, complete with maracas. Fun pop.
*14. Classic of Montreal. Pop, heavy on the synth and strong beat. Soft lyrics.
16. Upbeat pop song, with catchy lyrics and careless feeling.
17. Electronic track, runs on a loop and everything. The lyrics are annoying though.
18. Pop song, fast guitar & drums. Repetitive lyrics. Not the best track.
*19. Slow, sweet, acoustic lullaby. Slurred lyrics, very enjoyable.
