I've Got a Dinosaur on My Head!

I just bought the CD, I've Got a Dinosaur on My Head, by Peter Apel, and we really like listening to it in the car.

"I Once Had a Balloon (But then it Popped)" is a work of genius, because it captures how psychotically attached little kids can be to their balloons, even though balloons aren't around forever. In the song, Peter tuns balloons into a poignant metaphor or mortality, while still being hilarious and also taking time to throw in an extended fart noise. Kudos!

The other songs are fun, and about simple subjects that kids relate too, often performed with silly voices and sounds. It's a great CD for kids!
