Super Music Friends for Mothers Day

I know it goes against my whole "anti merchandising/commercialising" ethos... but damn it if Yo Gabba Gabba isn't my favourite TV show!!! I've just been following through on a link from Zooglobble about Solange Knowles, (see below) and I've found myself pouring through some of the behind the seance videos on You Tube. I highly recommend checking out the Behind the Scenes on Jack Blacks appearance!! You can find the Yo Gabba Gabb YouTube channel here with videos for all your favourite Super Music Friends Show eps.

The first time I saw Yo Gabba Gabba a couple of years ago, I wasn't 100% certain I wasn't having a bizarre dream. I was more than a little relieved to discover a couple of months later that Yo Gabba Gabba was real and not only did it teach me how to dance like the puppet master (thanks Elijah) but it had some absolutely rockin' music for kids. I am attributing Yo Gabba Gabba as a big influence on how Kids Music Month came to be at Monkeytail and Wellington.

Some big names have made an appearance on Yo Gabba Gabba in it's 3 season history and it seems they are lining up at the door to get a piece of the action. And they aren't all kids entertainers either. Weird Al Yanokvic, Devo, Mos Def, Sarah Silverman, The Flaming Lips, The Killers, The Shins and Weezer just to name a few.

As Sunday is Mothers Day I thought I'd share a mellow moment from Yo Gabba Gabba from Season 3 in an episode titled Baby. The video is pure psychedelic Gabba, but the music is all funky sole diva Solange Knowles... and I agree with Stefan, the background is very distracting from a great song. Thanks for putting it out there :o)

Happy Mothers Day!!
