Funky. Modern. Addictive. That’s the only way to describe the newest CD release from North Carolina’s favourite power pop band for kids, Big Bang Boom. Because I Said So! was a high-energy, totally rocking listening experience that my boys and I both found endlessly entertaining.
So what makes the CD so appealing? It starts with the great melodies, which combine rock, alternative and hip-hop for an appealing feel that adults will actually enjoy as much as kids. In fact, during the intro of I Can Sing, I subconsciously became convinced I was listening to one of my favourite Sublime CDs!
But while the melodies may have adult appeal, the music is all about the children. From the opening track, Green Light, which has an upbeat country-rock feel, to the hilarious title track Because I Said So!, the songs are full of kid-friendly content. My personal favourite song was Are We There Yet?; a melody to which any family that has ever been on a car trip will be able to relate.
Zackary especially just loved this CD and I think it would likely be a hit with most young school-aged kids. After all, how could any child not love songs about biking, underwear and playing punch buggy? And Big Bang Boom wants to give you a chance to enjoy this upbeat, family-friendly music for yourself, so the company is very generously offering one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader their own copy of Because I Said So!
I’ve listened to a lot of children’s music over the years and Big Bang Boom really is something special. The modern feel and humour-heavy kid content makes it stand out from the crowd and it’s no surprise to me that they recently won the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest with one of their songs. If you want a CD that will have you grooving to the beat as your children laugh at the lyrics, look no further than Big Bang Boom Because I Said So!
