Today I'm just going to make a list of some of my favorite records and tapes from when I was little. And no, we didn't have CDs or Ipods back then!
My mom tells me that when I was very little I loved Mother Goose songs and stumped my Grandma when I was over her house onetime by repeadetly asking for "Ma Goo, Ma Goo!" Apparently I was very insistent!
I also remember vividly singing along with Marcy. We had a record called The Happy Day Express. As far as I know, she was a full-grown adult who actually had a voice that sounded like a little girl.
Then of course there was all the Psalty the Singing Songbook tapes. Kids Praise, Kids Praise 1, Kids Praise 2 and on and on they went. I still sing a lot of those songs to my kids now.
I remember Music Machine, Antsylvania, Bullfrogs and Butterflies, Sir Oliver's Song, Nathaniel the Grublet (Direwood — eek!)
But above all, my FAVORITE album by far was Christine Wyrtzen's Critter County! All those cute animals singing Bible verses to the ABCs – it was really the best way ever to learn all those verses. I still remember all the songs and all the verses.
A – Ant – "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
B – Bee – "Bee-eee-eee -lieve on the Lord Jesus Christ… and thou shalt be saved!"
C – Cool Cats – "Casting all your cares upon Him, for He careth for you"
and on and on! If you ever come across this gem, get it for sure!!!
This is just a small portion of the music that filled my life when I was young. Then of course there was all the music my parents listened to as well… maybe I'll save that for another post!
