UPC 50087238308 FAMILY MUSIC
Shakespeare and lawn décor intersect
in director Kelly Ashbury’s (“Shrek 2,”
“Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”)
new feature “Gnomeo and Juliet.”
Featuring a star-studded voice cast
that includes Emily Blunt, James
McAvoy, Jason Statham and Patrick
Stewart, the romantic epic “Romeo and Juliet” is re-imagined as a story of
star-crossed garden gnomes caught up in a feud between the denizens of two
yards. This soundtrack features music from Elton John, including classic songs
like “Your Song,” “Saturday Night’s Alright” and “Rocket Man,” along with
an updated version of “Crocodile Rock” (with Nelly Furtado) and a new song
“Hello Hello.” Also featured are excerpts of the score from James Newton
Howard (which creatively incorporates some Elton John melodies into the mix)
and “The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room,” the closing track based on the theme song of the
Disneyland attraction.

Acoustic Dreamland
Wheels on the Bus, The
GKN3 1 CD $9.98 / $15.98
Groove Kid Nation is the brainchild of professional
musician and father Rodney Lee. His goal was
simple — to introduce kids to the power of groove
and soul. THE WHEELS ON THE BUS features a
vibrant cast of characters, including Itsy the pianoplaying Spider, Saxophonist Froggy and Walter
the trumpet-playing Weasal, who give kids a
touchstone for better getting into the songs. Lee
touches upon jazz, blues, funk and classic soul for the arrangements, transforming children’s
standards like “Froggy Went A Courtin’” and “Three Blind Mice” into fresh, fun songs that
parents will enjoy as much as kids. In the process kids will learn about different instruments,
develop an appreciation for jazz and develop a keen sense of groove. A portion of the
proceeds are being donated to CARE, a humanitarian organization fighting poverty.

Each Spring, everyone — including Sunny the Bunny —
pitches in to make Easter holiday goodies. Then it’s the

out, because grouchy old Town doesn’t allow kids or a
hippity-hoppity Easter bunny! With a childlike sense of
wonder, this perennial favorite shows how Sunny and his
pals win over the meanies of Town by inventing many of
our happiest, hoppiest Easter traditions!

The characters prepare for Easter morning, when, according to Linus, the “Easter Beagle” will arrive and hand out
Easter eggs to everybody. Lucy schemes to find all the
eggs in the annual Easter Egg Hunt by planting all the
eggs and recording their positions; Peppermint Patty and
Marcie try to make Easter eggs, but Marcie instead fries,
roasts, toasts, waffles, and finally makes soup from them.
Fortunately for everybody (except Charlie Brown and
Lucy), the Easter Beagle (Snoopy) arrives and hands out
eggs to everyone (the ones Lucy planted). He runs out of
eggs, so he gives Charlie Brown the basket.
