Many year ago, I heard a version of the song “Red Red Robin” and fell in love with it. This peppy song stayed in my head for weeks, and the same thing happened when I stumbled upon it again recently.
I took that as a sign that I needed to record my own version, so I did exactly that. I’ve been using it like crazy in both my music therapy sessions and music classes; it works beautifully as a dance-along tune.
I usually sing it at a moderate tempo the first time through, and then speed it up considerably the second time. I love to see the creative moves my students come up with, and just about everyone joins in singing with me.
