The results from our latest poll are in and indicate that when it comes to kids music, dads are either in or they’re out.
40% of the respondents really didn’t listen to any children’s music at all. One can assume that these dads think that their collection of Billy Squire, Jimmy Buffet and Squeeze is more than sufficient to instruct their offspring in the finer points of music appreciation. This clearly biased pollster happens to fall in this category. My belief has long been that kids music belongs in kids players and that adult music belongs on adult players. What lessons do the kids need that Johnny Cash and Ryan Adams can’t teach them?
On the other hand, 32% or our respondents listen almost exclusively to music made for children. Which is cool as long as they have plenty of Sara Hickman, Trout Fishing in America, Jellydots, Joe McDermott, Dan Zanes, Farmer Jason, and the BummKinn Band in the iPod, otherwise they’re obviously going to go insane. One need look no further than the DadLabs video catalog to find great music for kids.
A smaller percentage of folks responded that they listed to kids music situationally, either on special occasions (16%) or in the car (12%). Bribing kids to get into the carseat? Encouraging them to behave with grandma coming over? We get it.
All joking aside, I think all the dads here agree that it is important to have music in the home, and fortunately there is a rapidly growing catalog of music that is palatable to both adults and children. Look no further than the amazing artists that have played here in the DadLabs studios for evidence of that.
Now go vote in our new poll:
