There is one man who is the king of children's television: Justin Fletcher is a genius.
I truly believe that every new parent should be given a voucher for an hour's entertainment, courtesy of Mr. Fletcher, upon the birth of each child. Just one hour to be used at a time that could be absolutely vital for the wellbeing of everyone in the house. Every television programme he creates is magical, and now he's turned his voice to a music CD, he's onto another winner!
I'll admit to being sceptical when I heard he'd released the album 'Hands Up!' All too accustomed to his singing on various programmes, I wasn't sure if away from the visual that the concept would work. The Boy had other ideas and proved me wrong.
Taking a step away from the traditional lullaby quality of most children's melodies, Justin has combined the lyrics to the classic songs with more modern and up tempo tunes. They certainly get your feet tapping, shoulders shaking and arms waving!
Have a listen to some of the title track while watching The Boy show his groovy moves and accompanying the musicians:
Since listening to this album pretty much non-stop since it came into the house, I can frequently be heard humming it on the playground in school. The five year olds don't mind, but I'm getting some funny looks from top juniors!
You can purchase 'Hands Up!' here on Amazon.
