Jovial, fun, and all around good rock and roll, Bill Crosby has formed in the Nashville, TN scene with some great work under his belt. He has three albums’ worth of music, and though the songs may seem kid related, they all display the unique and colorful imagination of a talented artist. The albums are titled “Boomerang Orangutan,” “The Peanut Butter Fish,” and “I Have A Pet Snail.” Not only are Bill Crosby’s songs good, but they are also humorous. With song titles like “Jamaican Bacon,” “No Sponges,” and “Dust Bunny,” it is clear that Bill Crosby is having fun with his music.
The song “Big Pig” is pretty literal, as Crosby sings about a big pig. His acoustic guitar is very well played and has great melodies throughout the different songs on his albums. The lyrics in “No Sponges” talk about how messy our kitchens would be without sponges. “No Sponges” also uses a cool sounding horn bit, as well, that really makes it stand out even more from his other absurd, yet entertaining songs. Bill Crosby uses a great range of instruments in his songs, but all of them are headed by Crosby’s folky acoustic guitar. The song ‘Pet Snail’ makes for good fun, as well. If you don’t like Bill Crosby’s music, your kids certainly will.
Bill Crosby clearly has a distinct and interesting set of songs, but, they are all worth listening to, if not for your love of music, then, at least, for pure entertainment value. If you’re interested,check him out at his website and download his music: http://www.billcrosbymusic.com
