Good Times and Bedtimes

by Si Kahn
 
Oh, okay, so GOOD TIMES AND BEDTIMES isn't really a lullaby album. Though these 16 lively, rootsy original songs by folksinger-activist Si Kahn do indeed have bedtime as their theme, the emphasis here is on the "good times" half of the title. Kahn sets the tone with the leadoff track, "No More Bedtimes": "Don't you know it's just not right/All the good stuff

Overview

Oh, okay, so GOOD TIMES AND BEDTIMES isn't really a lullaby album. Though these 16 lively, rootsy original songs by folksinger-activist Si Kahn do indeed have bedtime as their theme, the emphasis here is on the "good times" half of the title. Kahn sets the tone with the leadoff track, "No More Bedtimes": "Don't you know it's just not right/All the good stuff happens at night/I'm gonna stay up 'til the morning light." He continues with "I'm Not Gonna Go To Sleep," "Underneath the Covers with My Flashlight On," and "One Glass of Water." Then, just for fun, he throws in "You Gotta Have a Peanut Butter Song": "Wait just a minute/There must be something wrong/We're halfway through the record/And we haven't had a peanut butter song." From start to finish, Kahn draws on his protest-song foundation to celebrate kids' innate antiauthoritarian spirit. Mind you, he isn't encouraging kids to defy parents - he's merely acknowledging, in a positive way, the irrepressible freedom-seeking essence that nature's built into our children.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Janet Schnol
Kahn's engaging voice and unaffected manner combine with child sensitive lyrics and accessible music to create a winning album.
