Later this week, my kids and I will gather around the television to watch the nail-biting action of the Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals.¬†But before we start to marvel at the super kids who don’t get¬†frazzled spelling¬†words¬†from autochthonous to zenaida¬†, we’ve got a great tune to play by They Might Be Giants’ bandmate and¬†Grammy-winning composer, Danny Weinkauf.

Champion of the Spelling Bee, from¬†Danny Weinkauf’s awesome debut kids’ album No School Today,¬†features the vocals of his 11-year-old son, Kai Weinkauf, who sings of becoming the last speller standing at the end of the competition. It’s a rocking kids’ tune that gleefully celebrates the hard work and brainpower ¬†needed by the 285 finalists, but it’s also a great track¬†to play before your own kids’ first spelling bee.

Download a copy of Danny Weinkauf’s¬†Champion of the Spelling Bee¬†from our affiliate Amazon and watch the music video on YouTube. ¬†The 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals will air on ESPN on Thursday, May 28th.
