High Five: Why? by They Might Be Giants

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

Silly, irreverent, ridiculous, and fun - They Might Be Giants (TMBG) are a favourite with little kids (and big kids like us) all over the world. And for good reason! As a rock band they dare us to be silly and to embrace the absurd. Kids lap this stuff up readily but it’s also brilliant (and cheap) therapy for parents that might need to tap into, and let loose, their inner silly.

Why? is TMBG’s latest album specifically written for kids and, like their other kids releases - Why?, Here Come the ABCs, Here Come the 123’s, and Here Comes Science – each track is written to educate kids and their grown-ups about looking at life through a smile.

Tune in to hear Kinderling’s High Five favourites all this week.
