Barry Louis Polisar: Teacher's Favorites

Teacher's Favorites
Barry Louis Polisar
Music CD with Lyrics & Album Download with PDF Lyrics

A recording of Barry's best loved songs about school that feature a new musical accompaniment with fiddle, mandolin, clarinet and guitar. This recording breathes new life into some of Barry's original songs; he sings about a boy who doesn't want to get out of bed in the morning--he turns out to be the Principal--and a deep voiced chorus sings about underwear in a calypso beat. This recording also includes Barry's classic 1975 song, I've Got a Teacher and She's So Mean, a child's heart-felt complaint with a real surprise ending! A funny and meaningful collection.

As the Guide to the Best Recorded Music for Children said, "Barry Louis Polisar talks to kids in a way that is direct but never condescending. Kids love him. He reaches children in their funny bone."
