My five year old has really been getting into music lately. He plays little tunes he makes up on the piano. He listens to lots of music. And he runs around with a cheap acoustic guitar strapped around his body.
The last couple of days he’s been playing Cake’s cover of Mahna Mahna on his little CD player over and over while he pretends to play along on his guitar.
He calls it the “rock and roll Muppet Song.” Of course he’s known the original for years already.
But neither of us were familiar with this 1969 version.
So tonight I looked it all up and found the songsterr version was the easiest to follow and learn. Great song! Now I just need that semi-hollow body guitar to play it on like Cake…oh, and actually learn the solo!
