"Cool Songs for Cool Kids" is Daddy A Go Go's first CD and was named to Amazon.com's first ever Top 10 Best Kids Records of the Year List (1999) and continues to be a favorite among Daddy a Go Go fans. All Music Guide writes: "Cool Songs for Cool Kids is a great introduction to Daddy a Go-Go's cool sound. The title of Daddy a Go-Go's debut Cool Songs for Cool Kids tells most of the story behind the album, though it leaves out the key ingredient of its appeal: the cool dads that comprise Daddy a Go-Go. Walt Brewer and John Boydston mix elements of surf, rockabilly, bubblegum, and classic rock and playful themes into 15 fun songs for kids and parents. Rough, jangly covers of the theme songs to Scooby Doo and Speed Racer, surfy instrumentals like "The Thang From Planet Twang," and witty originals like "Dads in the Sky" and "Daddy's Diaper Blues" reflect the different sides of Daddy a Go-Go's fun, unique style." Its a kids record that doesn't talk down to kids (or to parents) and begins the Daddy a Go Go tradition of never insulting anyone's intelligence, while keeping it fun. Daddy a Go Go has 5 CD's, so check out Daddy A Go Go's other 4 CD's here at Amazon.com, starting with the 2006 release "Eat Every Bean and Pea On Your Plate," one of Amazon.com's Top 10 Best Kids CD"s of the Year Choices. Also Parents Choice Award Winner "Monkey In The Middle," which was also named to Amazon.com's Top 10 Best Kids Records of the Year in 2000. "Big Rock Rooster" expands Daddy a Go Go's notion of rock and roll for the family with rom covers of Allan Sherman's "Hello Muddah,Hello Faddah" and a punchy version of "Come On Get Happy", to fun clever originals like "I Wanna Be An Action Figure" and "I Think I Might Be a Dog." And in 2004 Daddy A Go Go won a 2nd Parents Choice Award with "Mojo A Go Go - Real Rock For Kids" CD, which was again named to Amazon.com's Top 10 Best Kids CD's The Year List. Daddy A Go Go's 2006 release "Eat Every Bean and Pea On Your Plate" features cool rockers like the title track, and "For Those About To Walk (We Salute You), Cryin' in the Dugout, and Pink Floyd Saves Hugh Manatee," and was named to Amazon.com's Top 10 Best Kids CD's of 2006 List. And Daddy a Go Go's newest release "Rock of All Ages" is also on Amazon's 2008 Best of Year List.

"This is a great CD. My 3-year-old daughter can't help but dance when she hears it. The first time I played it, she sang the alphabet to the "Alphabet Song". It's great to find such a fabulous collection of kids' music all on one CD. We played the CD 3 times the first day we had it. Buy this one!"

"We bought this album because we wanted music that the whole family could enjoy, an does it deliver! Often with children's music the songs can get pretty boring after awhile. This CD is full of fun dance tunes and even throws in a little lesson on personal hygiene with "brush your teeth!". Our three year old has been listening and dancing to it since he was 21 months old. We know our 3 month old will love it too. We can't wait for more from these Go-Go Daddies!"

"This is one of only a few of our kids' cds that my husband & I don't mind hearing over & over. The kids are three & five, and, of course, want to hear the same cd again and again - this one is actually tolerable even if you've already heard it five times that day....it's also good for getting the kids moving - it's very danceable."
