Me and My Apple
Me and My Apple features 15 animal and nature-loving songs, including the playful pig tribute “I Do I Do Love You,” the Country pop butterfly tune “Magical Moments,” the bluegrass fun of “Mine All Mine” about turtles, and “I See You By The Sea” about a snack snatching group of seagulls. Farrell turns her attention to the plant world in the lovely, reassuring song of a weeping Willow (“Deep Roots”), the finger snapping “Green Peas in a Pod,” the apple crunching “Chomp Chomp Chew,” and the maple flavored hoedown “Sugar Shack.” Elsewhere, the wonders of the Earth are explored in “Treasure Hunting,” about finding agates, and the cave appreciating “Shine Your Light.” The album is balanced with still more charming little songs about sea otters, spiders, ducks, goats and seaweed. Farrell’s music skillfully teaches children about the world around them, through her very entertaining song structures, memorable melodies and her warm friendly singing.
