The Secret Weapon

All moms with children have secret weapons. You know what I am talking about, the one thing that will get your child in line quick fast and in a hurry. That card you play to avert meltdowns of nuclear magnitude. My secret weapon is Mother Goose Rocks! Mother Goose Rocks! is comprised of DVDs and CDs with spoofs of rock artists. You have Mono with ME2 (aka Bono with U2) singing Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes. The video features guest stars Oprah, The Pope, and our own George W. (who is unable to keep up and pats his head when everyone else in on knees)!

The best thing about these videos is that they are fun for both adults and children. The concept is amazing. Other videos include Frere Jacque with Dave Mathshoes (Dave Matthews) exploring the Louve, Mulberry Bush by Gwen Stuffuny, and Old Mother Hubbard by Punch Nose (Smash Mouth).

Some of the songs stay true to the original melody while others sing the words to music made famous by the parodied artist. Although they are all fun, Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes is the handsdown winner in the Cutie Booty Household. You can get the DVD on the website but you can also purchase the CD’s and download tunes for your iPod. Go to the website and view the sample videos, I challenge you to see if Mother Goose Rocks will work as your secret weapon too!
