  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

CD review for kids

If you want to make any young sibling happy at any given moment, the “NOW” selection is always a great place to look. This being the “NOW, Vol. 20” edition, it delivers songs that popular radio has been playing these last couple of months. This is an full-length album, featuring 20 songs that can appeal to anyone at any age.

“NOW, Vol. 20” delivers: rock, pop, R’#38;B, hip hop and country. Where else can you find this variety on one CD without having to go to your computer to download?

“NOW” starts out with Missy Elliott’s, “Lose Control,” with the weird dance beat, and goes into The Black Eyed Peas’ “Don’t Phunk With My Heart.”

Bow Wow makes an appearance, with his collaboration with Ciera on “Like You.” DHT’s cover of Roxanne’s “Listen to Your Heart,” also made the cut being featured on radio stations nationwide.

Kelly Clarkson shows no signs of slowing down from her post-American Idol career with her song “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” also appearing on the album. The Backstreet Boys reunion made the cut with their song, “Just Want You to Know.”

The later part of the album features more rock-pop with the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Weezer, Coldplay and Fall Out Boy.

“NOW, Vol 20” ends with a little country provided by Keith Urban and his track, “You’ll Think of Me,” giving the album the variation needed for a compilation album.

“NOW” has always provided a great mix of genres and this one is no different. Whatever your tastes are, look no further than “NOW, Vol 20.” It’s a great album for any age at any time.
