besides They Might Be Giants are there any really good kids albums (for a 1 year old) that won't make you want to spot your self in the face?

The Putomayo world music label has a number of world music CDs for kids. Often available at libraries.

The Broadway Kids Sing Broadway. I mean, if you're willing to put up with show tunes, it's really a fun CD. But if you hate that kind of music, you'll want to punch yourself in the face.

Some friends of mine just had a baby. They (and I) recommend Elizabeth Mitchell's albums. She's a member of the band Ida, and she has released two children's albums which are really fun and not as annoying as other children's music. They're still definitely children's music. Her website is here.

I will also note that there are other They Might Be Giants albums that kids like. Flood is good.

For more ideas, check out a blog called "Kids Music That Rocks." You can find their review of one of Elizabeth Mitchell's children albums here.

Raffi was a favorite of my kids and my music students. He's a Canadian singer. I'm sure you can find his CDs on Enjoy.
