What's the Good Word?


I couldn't find a date on this one, but I'm expecting it came out in the early 70's. Subtitled "Children's Sing-and-Learn Introduction to Words and How to Use Them", this album covers a lot of territory including synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, plurals, onomatopeia, and other word forms. While it's not as catchy as the Grammar Rock songs, it is brought to you by those swingers at Peter Pan Records, so it's still pretty cool!

Here's the track list:

  1. What's the Good Word
  2. With a Wink and a Nod
  3. The Dic-Dic-Dictionary
  4. A-E-I-O-U
  5. Sing a Song of Synonyms
  6. Antonym Island
  7. It Sounds Alike
  8. Ding Dong Dinging
  9. The Inside Outside Words
  10. The Plurals
  11. I've Got a Good Dog (Comparisons)
  12. Mister Big Word
  13. The Goodbye Song
  14. What's the Good Word (Reprise)

My brothers and I used to listen to this record at night before we went to sleep. I believe it came out in the late 60s. I still have most of the lyrics to the songs memorized. It taught me a lot about language at a young age. Great memories!!!

Oh man, I am excited to find this! My sister and I listened to it growing up in the 70s and just loved it. Can't wait to loved it.... it will be happily familiar!

I had this album!! Crazy memories...I hardly remember listening to it - I can barely hear the memories...but in a few minutes it will all come back. Probably mid 70's when I had it.
