Described by Weird Al Yankovic as "one of the few children's recording artists
I can listen to without wanting to stab myself in the eyes," you don't have to have kids to appreciate the silly subject matter and exquisitely crafted pop sensibility, but it probably helps. It should come as no surprise that, as front man for The Presidents of the United States, the man who wrote songs like Kitty
, Boll Weevil
, and Dune Buggy
grew up to write offbeat children's music. I would especially like to call your attention
to these wonderful
and clever low tech
videos, including several worthy fan videos
