Cool Tunes for Kids by Eric Herman

Eric Herman visited my blog yesterday. Herman runs the Cool Tunes for Kids blog and is a performing musician based in Washington State. He's here in Seattle doing some shows, and I'm hoping to make it to at least one performance with the House of Glee. Um, Eric, you thanked me for posting your video of "The Elephant Song" awhile back. I can't find that post! Still, it's very silly of me that I would have not posted it before now (though I can hardly see you as the one pointing the Finger of Silliness), sooooooo....

Here is the animated video of "The Elephant Song." It's a bit evocative of the Lazy Jack motif of the fool who follows directions literally and bases every decision on the last piece of advice given by someone wiser than he (in this case, Eric Herman's somebody else's daughter):



Here is a live-action video of Herman juggling produce and going "Crazy Over Vegetables." I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall (or the zucchini) while Herman was filming this video:



Pssst... while you're at it, read some good advice about performing for children.

Heheh. Whoops! I feel silly. I got you mixed up with a different blog that had mentioned "The Elephant Song"... You had mentioned the Johnny Bregar article from my blog. That's how I found your blog.

But NOW I can say thank you for mentioning the "Elephant Song" video. :o)

Anyway, regardless of all that, I really enjoy your blog and hopefully we can cross paths sometime soon. I'd love to hear your stories and songs, and I'm sure my girls would, too.

(Btw, just for the record, my daughters aren't actually responding on that video... my oldest was only one when that recording was done by a girl named Meghan from Buffalo... though I did record a new version of the song with them responding for my latest album.)

Take care,
Eric

I am giggling like a 4-year-old over here. Thanks for making me smile all the time. XOXO!

Okay, you may leave my entry for the carnival. So sorry for the mistake! Also, sorry for leaving so many comments, but my email is down, so I can't send an email. Thanks again.

Thanks, Eric! I look forward to meeting you Thursday at the Shoreline Library.

Lady K: If you're giggling like a four year old, then really, you're chortling. I should know. I had a girlie yelling knock-knock jokes for TWO HOURS last night while she was supposed to be sleeping.

Megan: I'm glad your entry will stay in the carnival! Thanks.
