Radiate

Not too long ago our Cool Kids pick was Jack Johnson's "Radiate" and received some positive feedback. Check out what one listener said, and if you missed the song before, check it out now!

"I played the CD for my 2 1/2 year old son Jake one time and he began requesting Radiate by name. I am not exaggerating when I say that for the past week he wakes up in the morning and/or from his nap asking to play the video on the ipad. In a moment of weakness (and those without children may say poor parenting) I gave him the ipad so that I could get the house cleaned up a bit. I think he may have played it for about an hour!!

It ends up the song was written about Jack Johnson watching his own son slip off into his imaginary world radiating all kinds of wonderful childhood energy out. I learned this little factoid from multiple views of the video on YouTube - I'm sure we are logging at least 1000 of the posted views! I think it's pretty cool that of all the songs on the CD, this is the one my son connects with!!"

Cool Kids Jack Johnson Joey Spehar Morning Mix Radiate

Hawaiian singer-songwriter, acoustic guitar player, and surfing connoisseur, Jack Johnson, is one of the most wholesome musicians of our time. You can play just about any of his songs for your kids and feel assured that the content not only contains positive messages, but they will probably want to dance to it too! Johnson has released six full length studio albums, but you may have also heard his music in films like Curious George

This Cool Kids choice is especially awesome because Jack Johnson actually got kids to help him create the music video for this song. "Radiate" off of his most recent 2013 album From Here to Now to You is about watching someone who may be unsure of themselves grow into something great. He teamed up with directors, The Daniel's, organization OMG! Cameras Everywhere and gave the task to bunch of summer camp kids to create the perfect music video for this upbeat tune. Check it out!
