Catch the Moon

The album pick for this week is Lisa Loeb and Elizabeth
Mitchell’s Catch the Moon. For all of you gen-Xers out there, you will remember Lisa Loeb’s song,
“Stay” from the 1994 classic film, Reality
. It was, hands down, the best song on the soundtrack and a mantra
for all college girls pining
after love in the mid-nineties, myself
included. If you enjoy soft, sultry
folk songs as much as I do than this is the album for you. My favorite track is “Little Red
Caboose.” If you just heard the first
five seconds of that song, you’d swear it was Johnny Cash. My son loves this one as well because it is
about a train. We also really like Lisa
and Elizabeth’s version of “Big Rock Candy Mountain” and “Twinkle Twinkle
Little Star.” My son really likes to
sing along to “Free Little Bird” as well. It is repetitive, melodic and very easy to learn. There are some tracks that are less than
masterful but, all in all, Catch
the Moon is
a great album and a
pleasure to listen to for kids and grown-ups alike.
