You know how much your students love BoomwhackersÆ. Well, here’s another terrific collection of songs from the pages of Music K-8 magazine that feature those popular, "whacky" instruments.
Whacky Birthday – Your kids will like this contemporary pop-style tune a lot. And we thought it would be fun having a lively alternative to the same old birthday song you probably usually sing.
O Whacky Christmas Tree – Most students will immediately recognize the "flavor" of the opening sounds of this distinctive arrangement of "O Christmas Tree." We have blended an optional vocal melody with BoomwhackersÆ for lots of fun and holiday spirit. You’ve got to hear it!
A Whacky Winter Song – A little bit of silly singing and BoomwhackerÆ playing is bound to lift anyone’s spirits. And, as with any BoomwhackerÆ song, you can substitute other pitched percussion or mallets if you like. Kids will love performing this one.
Whack Attack! – It’s whacky! It’s fun! It’s "Whack Attack!" In this high energy piece we’ve done a bit of a parody of a classic ’80s hit, which shall remain nameless, but whose name rhymes with… Nevermind! You’ll figure it out.
Whacky Boogie – A good old-fashioned boogie woogie is sure to be a real crowd-pleaser. And "Whacky Boogie" won’t disappoint. It features singers, BoomwhackersÆ, and a real big band accompaniment.
