What's the story?

From the soundtrack to the new Disney musical Camp Rock (airing June 2008), \"PLAY MY MUSIC\" is a fast-paced tribute to how much kids love to dance, sing, and play music. The movie's stars, the Jonas Brothers, lend their vocal chops.

Is it any good?

Although the JoBros aren't the best vocally, they do have a level of enthusiasm that's hard to ignore. "Play My Music" is a fun ode to just wanting to yes, play music, but also embraces all things musical, including singing and dancing. It's a wholesome tune that sends tweens a positive message about expression and letting go.
