While there are some awesome kindie rock bands out there that we’ve featured both here and on Cool Mom Picks,
there are plenty of awesome “adult” tunes out there that work just as well for our kids.
Now that the Beatles are on iTunes (whoo!), I’ve pulled together a few faves–perhaps less obvious than Yellow Submarine and Octopus’ Garden. And they’re all ready for downloading, whether you got a shiny new iPod under the tree or you’re looking to add some new life to your old one.
Just grab the whole album, or download individual songs and make your very own kid-friendly Beatles playlist. -Kristen
Hello Goodbye – (from Magical Mystery Tour) Because every kid (and parent) can identify with the lyrics You say yes and I say no.
I am the Walrus - (from Magical Mystery Tour) It’s my daughter’s favorite, mostly because I think she likes that “goo goo g’joob” business.
All You Need is Love - (from Magical Mystery Tour) We sing “All you need is a nap” – pretty catchy.
All Together Now – (from Yellow Submarine) It’s got numbers, letters, and numbers, so it’s educational, right?
Twist and Shout – (from Please Please Me) My kids are great on the shouting. Still working on the twisting.
Birthday – (from The Beatles (White Album)) Waaaaay more fun than the actual “Happy Birthday” song.
Here Comes the Sun – (from Abbey Road) Lullabies come in all sorts of forms; this is one of our faves.
