With their co-ordinated dance routines, colourful costumes and catchy songs, The Wiggles have become an international phenomenon in the world of children's entertainment.
Although their act is a fairly simple one – singing and dancing for kids with some gentle humour thrown in – it's the way in which the Antipodean foursome puts together the music (a mix of classic folk songs, timeless children's favourites and some of their own funky compositions) into a well-organised, catchy collection of tunes that lies at the heart of their multi-million pound success.
Whilst some parents like to play pop music to their babies and toddlers, and others like to play gentle nursery rhymes, The Wiggles somehow manage to fuse the two.
CD Review: 'You Make Me Feel Like Dancing'
1970s pop legend Leo Sayer joins The Wiggles for a jaunty reworking of his big hit, 'You Make Me Feel Like Dancing', but elsewhere on this CD there's a seaside feel with a version of 'A Sailor Went To Sea' and the 'Hornpipe'. Plus there is a chance to enjoy much-loved songs from the TV show, like 'I Drive The Big Red Car'.
As always, The Wiggles always like to embrace all kinds of world cultures so also expect to hear some other musical stylings – country music, the Caribbean classic 'Day-O (aka The Banana Boat Song)', and even a rowdy romp through 'La Bamba'.
Little ones love to dance to a good tune and this album works just as well for pass-the-parcel at a birthday party as it does for any Tuesday morning boogie around the living room!
The album comes with some great extras on the CD ROM, including a puzzle game and three special videos – one performed by The Wiggles' chum Dorothy the Dinosaur!
'You Make Me Feel Like Dancing' is out now.
