It's another on-the-road Ask The Readers; today's theme is missing songs. Go!
Hoping one your readers can help.
Years ago I was a nanny — the kids had a great cassette tape (this proves it was years ago!). I'm pretty sure it was called "Jelly Bean Jar" or a variation of that. It was a woman artist.
Some songs I remember are "Counting to 100," "That's Disgusting!", and something about getting a smack for being naughty.
It was one of those kids' tapes that doesn't make you want to kill yourself after two listenings.
I'm now expecting my own bundle, and would love to find this album — hopefully on CD!
With all the book questions, I never considered asking for help finding a song…
I am trying to locate a copy of the song "Cripple Creek" by Jim Rast & Knee Deep. (No, NOT the version by The Band.)
Due to my Google-fu, I can include the information that the song has has also been credited to Jim Rast & The Malones, and apparently appears on the CD "Line Dance Hits from the Jukebox Volume 1." I don't know the name of the original CD (or record, or whatever) the song originally appeared on, but some version of the song appears to have been released by South Bound Records.
Yes, I have tried iTunes, and the CD for sale at Tower.com is out-of-print and unavailable. I'm willing to pay for the song, but at this point I'd also be thrilled if someone would just be willing to e-mail or FTP me the mp3. It's a popular line-dance song, and I occasionally give my friends lessons, so the music would help.
Country music is only good for dancin' to.
