If you’ve you were to put on the new CD from CMP favorite Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke, Hey Pepito!, you’d immediately be transported into what can best be described as three minutes of kindie power-punk—loud and full of British brash. But since it’s way too hot for any mini mosh pit right now, I say take a listen their happy little tune about a winged creature who overcomes her greatest fear by taking to the skies.
Mary the Fairy is a light, airy, banjo-strumming story about a little fairy who is afraid to fly. It’s a sweet story about wishing and longing to do something that seems so, so, so scary—I’m sure more than one preschooler, and maybe even their parents, can relate. I won’t give away the ending, but it’s a great story about patience and believing in yourself, a musical lesson I’m happy for my kids to hear over and over. –Christina
