The songs are all credited to zany monikers that approximate the mocked artists -- the Tallflowers for the Wallflowers, Grape Jam for Pearl Jam, Maya Cherry for Mariah Carey, etc. Many of the selections are dead-on spoofs of the work of their real-life counterparts: "Pat-a-Cake" by Diamond perfectly captures Jewel's breathy vocals, a mock-agonized "Little Miss Muffet" by Lana Moreisless wickedly apes the impassioned ...

Parents and kids alike just gotta love an album that has Chewygummee doing "Humpty Dumpty" à la Chumbawamba's "Tubthumping," among other highly amusing tidbits.
