The Wiggles To Cover Classic Rock! Great Way To Introduce Your Kid To Great Music
When my teenage son was three years old, his favorite band, The Wiggles! He would sing "Fruit Salad" at the top of his lungs, and he would sing it everywhere. The house, in the car, and even walking down the grocery aisle, 'fruit salad, yummy yummy!' We still have the DVDs and the CDs that we use to play in the car. So I saved them, thinking he might want them for his kids.
The Wiggles, a kid's educational learning group, is now singing classic rock? This is not the first time they have released songs for adults; in 2011, they released ReWiggled, a tribute album.
ReWiggled, the March 2022 release, will feature the original Wiggles members Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt, and Greg Page playing music from Queen, AC/DC, and The Rolling Stones. A five-track preview EP was released, giving fans a taste of what's to come.
Side one of the release will feature Wiggles songs performed by other artists, with side two being The Wiggles performing other artists' songs. SIDE TWO (performed by The Wiggles):
'Elephant' (original by Tame Impala)
'Bohemian Rhapsody (original by Queen)
'Umbrella' (original by Rhianna)
'Thunderstruck' (original by AC/DC)
'Pub Feed' (original by The Chats)
'Sunday Girl' (original by Blondie)
'Get on the Good Foot' (original by James Brown)
'Praise You' (original by Fatboy Slim)
'Brand New Key' (original by Melanie)
'She's a Rainbow' (original by The Rolling Stones)
'Live It Up' (original by Mental As Anything)
'Shipping Up to Boston' (original by Dropkick Murphys)
I had a chance to listen to 'Pub Feed' by the Wiggles, and honestly, not bad. They sound like the Clash. Will I get this new release? Most likely not, but who knows, I may get it for my son to add to his collection! The Wiggles are celebrating 30 years together. I can't believe I only started listening to them 13 years ago.
