I kept my kids entertained!!!

My daughter 6, and my son 4, both very much enjoyed this cd. kept them interested, taught them new songs, and burnt off alot of energy. (which they need often).

I liked the songs so much that I burned them to a different disc. One song is about karate which is one of my favorite hobbies.

What's the story?

There's a physical-fitness crisis among American youth these days, and our friends at Disney are going to stop at nothing to do something about it (actually, they still sell sugar and fat-laden snacks at their theme parks and advertise junk food on TV, but there is that bottom line to think of...). RADIO DISNEY: MOVE IT! offers 15 perky tunes guaranteed to get you and your kids off the barca-lounger and into dancing-machine mode. Queen starts us off with \"We Will Rock You,\" followed by \"Move It Like This\" by the Baha Men, and \"Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)\" by C+C Music Factory. Other predictable but irresistible dance-party hits include Bar-Mitzvah staples \"The Macarena\" by Los Del Rio, \"Cha Cha Slide\" by Mr. C the Slide Man, \"Limbo Rock Remix (Miami Mix)\" by Chubby Checker, and \"Y.M.C.A.\" by the Village People.

Is it any good?

Disney gets points for attempting to appeal to a multi-generational audience, as highlights include "I Got You (I Feel Good)" by James Brown (point out the amazing horn parts and rhythm section to your music-student kids) and "Shout" by the Isley Brothers. Over all, this delightful compilation delivers on its promise -- we dare you to listen and not feel like dancing. Just make sure you don't already have all these songs on other CDs before buying.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the importance of fitness and how to make it fun, then turn off the TV and have a living-room dance party.
