If you don’t know the song Cows, it’s the opening track on the CD Philadelphia Chickens by childrens’ author Sandra Boynton. If you’re going on a road trip with the kids, I recommend it as one of the few CDs that parents can listen to as long as the kids can. Even if there are no kids in tow, it’s fun, quirky music perfect for the open road and blue highways amusement.
Cows is a theatrical, lyrically-compelling opener sung by The Seldom Herd. Kevin Bacon punches an incredible lead vocal onto the big band jazz arrangement of title track Philadelphia Chickens. Meryl Streep sings a beautifully-plaintive comedic lead vocal on Faraway Cookies. Endlessly entertaining. You won’t be disappointed.
Here are my cows. It was near dark and they were in a mellow, early-summer-night mood. Cows. Remarkable cows.
