Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that if you prefer '80s tunes to typical kiddie fare, than this CD is perfect for you and your little ones. All the songs are parodies of popular songs you grew up with, with kid-friendly lyrics.
What's the story?
Brothers Craig and Scott Coane discovered early on that being new dads meant changing their lifestyle and the music they listened to -- around their kids, anyway. So they took popular tunes they loved, and changed the lyrics to suit their biggest fans: their children. NO SUGAR ADDED is the debut album of Juice Box Heroes, and it's non-stop fun from beginning to end with 12 cover tracks and kid-appropriate lyrics to popular hits like "Sweet Caroline" ("Sweet Clementines"), "Material Girl" ("Cheerio World"), and "Friends in Low Places" ("When I'm Big I Want Braces").
Is it any good?
Thanks to the Juice Box Heroes, parents can actually enjoy their children's music, and kids will love singing the snappy, clever lyrics to the catchy tunes on No Sugar Added. It's total fun for the whole family, and perfect for family game nights or road trips. "Cake" (to the tune of George Michael's "Faith") tells kids to eat their veggies first, "Puppy's Fur" ("Jessie's Girl") is about a kid's best friend, and "Sweet Dreamin' Pajamas" ("Sweet Home Alabama") gives night-night time some southern style. The Juice Box Heroes have taken a simple concept and turned it into a cool way to share your past and childhood with your kids. So maybe you can't listen to Jay-Z or watch MTV with them, but you can jam like Madonna, Cyndi, and Rick Springfield -- just to lyrics about the potty, nappies, and Cheerios.
