My wife, a Webelos Den Leader, came back from last weekend's National
Capital Area Council Cub Scout Pow-Wow with a gushing endorsement of a
soundtrack she overheard in an Indian Lore session. Apparently she was the
only one to pick up that the gathering music was actually cartoon songs.
The CD playing was from the Black Lodge Singers who record on Canyon
Records. Their Volume 14, "Kids Pow Wow Songs", has songs that youth will
certainly enjoy. I downloaded some samples from this CD as well as other
traditional pow wow recordings and my Webelos Scout son and Brownie Girl
Scout daughter were dancing and bouncing all over the house in joy.
The songs on this CD are:
1. Lonney Toons
2. Mighty Mouse
4. Tiny Tots Contest Song: 'Indian People Watch Little Girls Dance!'
5. Ask Your Mom For Fifty Cents
6. Intertribal Song
7. Mickey Mouse
8. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
9. Bunny Hop
1. Kuna Matata
11. Eight Ball Song: Dedicated To Nathan Jim
12. Monster Mash
13. Here's Kenny!
You can check out this particular Black Lodge Singers CD and sample some of
CDnow and Amazon.com also have song samples from this CD online. I think
"Mighty Mouse" is neat.
A discography for Black Lodge Singers can also be found at:
The Canyon Records web site has some broken links at present, so your best
bet to find out more about the Black Lodge Singers is to just use a web
search engine and search for Black Lodge Singers. Interestingly, my wife
first found it online with a search for "Flintstones Monster Mash pow wow
indian drum" -- something I'd never guess!
Both CDnow.com and Amazon.com have this CD for sale. CDnow and Matoska are
a bit cheaper, but Amazon.com sent out $10 gift certificate "codes" to
customers last week. Using mine, my final cost with shipping was a little
more than $7.
