Dan Zanes

Tremendous thanks to Alkelda from Saints and Spinners for her post on Dan Zanes.

Until recently, we were watching The Disney Channel in the morning. Dan Zanes has (had?) a video that was played between the shows, and I had no idea who he was. Either they never showed his name, or I missed it every stinkin' time. I searched the Disney website with absolutely no luck.

I've just spent far too much time on his website, and it seems as if all of his songs will be great for the whole family. We love listening to music that everyone can enjoy. Lately our favorites have come from Putumayo, specifically the "Sing Along" CD. (You've never really heard "Old MacDonald" until you've heard Rufus Thomas' version.) Oddly enough, Dan Zanes and Friends are ON that CD, and I never even thought to look them up!

Oh yeah, and I think he's a shopper after my own heart. Just have a look at the lyrics for "Thrift Shop."

Thanks again, Alkelda!
