My kids and I were enjoying the gorgeous Spring weather a few days ago and our backyard was filled with the perfect background music to a perfect day.

What were we listening to?

The new Daisy mayhem CD, Ranky Tanky.

I adore when musicians remake songs that adults know and love but, do it in a way that makes kids know and love them as well. All of the songs on Daisy Mayhem's first family music CD are covers of songs you'll definitely recognize. From the first track, Cat Stevens' "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out", to Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" and all the amazing music in between, this CD keeps you and the kids moving and happy from beginning to end.

I like to put in a CD without looking over the tracks first. As we were enjoying our Daisy Mayhem while the sun shone down on our shoulders, I was wonderfully surprised when "Purple People Eater" came blasting out of the speakers. That song gives me some serious nostalgia and Daisy Mayhem totally rocks it.

Daisy Mayhem is comprised of fiddler Rani Arbo, bassist Andrew Kinsey, guitarist Anand Nayak and percussionist Scott Kessel. Ranky Tanky is a wonderfully eclectic mix of different types of music performed perfectly by these talented musicians.

To be honest, I'd never heard of Daisy Mayhem before I listened to this CD. After falling head over heals for Ranky Tanky, I'm off to check out some more Daisy Mayhem and, undoubtedly, add them to my playlists!

Daisy Mayhem's Ranky Tanky CD is set for release on March 23rd. You can pick up your copy HERE. Or download the songs HERE.
