Norah Jones, Children’s Musician

Well, she was on Sesame Street, singing “Don’t Know Y” the letter Y left her high and dry–that was in 2007–but I’m talking about “Man of the Hour” from her latest album, The Fall, released last year. If you haven’t heard the song, don’t let me spoil it, get your hands on it and listen to it now.

OK, so the cover of the CD is a big clue, but it took me several listens to figure out that the song is about her dog. So as Shira and I were heading to work and preschool one morning and I was trying to avoid listening to “Starts and Stripes Forever” for the billionth time (although I am glad she appreciates Sousa at such a young age), I tried to interest her in Norah Jones by telling her I thought the song was about a dog and we should listen to the lyrics and figure it out. And believe it or not, it worked. It’s a great mystery kind of a song for a kid to figure out.
