Cool Kids: Ween-Hey There Fancy Pants
Today's Cool Kids choice is from an experimental alternative rock group, Ween. Ween was formed in 1984 by Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo in New Hope, PA; an area not too far away from Philly. The group has a pretty strong underground cult following based on their musical combination of avant-garde rock tunes and often silly lyrics.
"Hey There Fancy Pants" is off of their 2003 album, Quebec, and has a fun, light-hearted composition that can easily put a pep in your step. It's hard to not bop your head back and forth with this one. All of the goofy characters in this song like Fancy Pants, Mr. Buttercup, and Sour Grapes may be having a tough day, but their mood is about to be turned around to something positive.
Show your kids this fun song, just don't tell them where the name Ween comes from!
