Friday Favorite: Jersey Babys

My hubby is a social butterfly (and I mean that in a masculine way, of course), and he meets a lot of interesting people in his job as a basketball trainer.  A couple weeks ago, he came home with a CD given to him by the parent of a client, and I was so excited!  

See, I was raised on the oldies.  My dad always had on music by Chubby Checker, Marvin Gaye, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, The Righteous Brothers, and of course, The Four Seasons.  When Jersey Boys opened on Broadway, I bought my parents tickets for their anniversary.  They loooooooved it. 

The Jersey Babys CD is adorable.  The songs are like a whimsical cross between soothing lullabies and happy carousel tunes.  They seamlessly run into each other and every couple minutes you hear the familiar melody of classics like "Walk Like a Man", "Can't Take My Eyes Off You"", "Big Girls Don't Cry", and "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)".  We listened to it on our drive to PA for Easter, and JD asked for MORE when it was over  :)

Danielle Gaudio-Lalehzar is the daughter of Bob Gaudio, an original member of The Four Seasons (and therefor a Jersey Baby herself), and she is the brains behind the project.  There is a great quote from her dad in the CD jacket: "Sometimes you just have to listen to your kids!"

You can see more info on the Jersey Babys website and the music is available on Amazon (both the CD and individual MP3s).  I can't wait to share this with my dad!
