While the prevailing wisdom might be "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," even timeless singalong songs like "Old MacDonald" need some sprucing up every once in a while. On Sing-Along Favorites: Rockin' Around the Playground, classics like "If You're Happy and You Know It" and "The Wheels on the Bus" get an injection of rock & roll energy that puts some pep in the step of these perennial favorites. And while the style of the songs may be different, the familiar melodies here prove that, no matter how you dress them up, these songs are favorites for a reason, and this compilation will provide plenty of singalong fun for the whole family.
