Available as an album, a DVD, and a summer 2005 concert tour, SAILING AROUND THE WORLD is the Wiggles' SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. A concept album with an appropriately descriptive title, SAILING AROUND THE WORLD is a 30-track tour around the globe. (The album's 15 songs, with 15 spoken intros, are programmed separately so that impatient kids can skip over them). Each song is about a specific location, and most are in a Wiggly approximation of the predominant musical culture, so "Hula Hula Hula (Nothing Could Be Cooler)" is semi-Hawaiian and "Agapame Tin Athena (We Love Athens)" has a surprisingly authentic bouzouki sound. As always, the Wiggles' music is just clever and funny enough that most parents won't mind hearing the album up to three or four times per day.
